Hello everyone! I am enjoying some of the threads going on like the morality one of Lav's and the other one on why go to school and it occured to me I'd like to ask some questions of you young folk. So if you don't mind, would you respond here? I'm curious as to how you all think. [img]smile.gif[/img]

1. If you aren't already in college, do you plan to attend college?

2. If you are thinking of going to college, can you tell me why? Was it your idea, your parents idea or do you want fame, money, etc...? Or maybe it's just because everyone else is? What is your reason? (if you are IN college now, answer this too, if you like! [img]smile.gif[/img] )

3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?

5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please! [img]smile.gif[/img]

6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?

7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?

8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?

9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?

10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?

Thanks so much for taking time to read/answer my thread! I really am so happy to see you all around here.. and it's always good to get to know one another better. [img]smile.gif[/img]

1. If you aren't already in college, do you plan to attend college?
(Not sure what is equal to college in Denmark.)

2. If you are thinking of going to college, can you tell me why? Was it your idea, your parents idea or do you want fame, money, etc...? Or maybe it's just because everyone else is? What is your reason? (if you are IN college now, answer this too, if you like! [img]smile.gif[/img] )
(Not sure what is equal to college in Denmark.)

3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?
(My mother, yes, my father, no. My father really isn't too intelligent in many ways, and he has no respect for me.)

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?
(If they tell me to do something that I can't see as being absolutely idiotic and they tell me to do it in a nice way, then I'll do it.)

5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please! [img]smile.gif[/img]
(If you take something that isn't yours and which you haven't been allowed to take, then it's stealing. Stealing might be allowed if it had bee stolen from you and you were stealing it back.)

6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?
(Talking with my friends, both online and RL ones.)

7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?
(I like those parts of it which I can see a use for, other parts of it just seem so useless that I'm absolutely apathetic towards it.)

8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?
(Something with computers would be nice, though my ideal career would be being and author [img]smile.gif[/img] )

9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?
(One certain girl. )

10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?
(Nope, I like to have some free time and I don't really have much to spend money on, I get by on my allowance.)

1. If you aren't already in college, do you plan to attend college?
Yes

2. If you are thinking of going to college, can you tell me why? Was it your idea, your parents idea or do you want fame, money, etc...? Or maybe it's just because everyone else is? What is your reason? (if you are IN college now, answer this too, if you like! )
Gee, I dont know... [img]tongue.gif[/img]

3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?
Yes, most times

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?
Hmm, this varies. If they ask me, then I'll do it, but if they just command me, then it's a big chance I dont.

5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please!
I would maybe steal if it were need for it (dont know if there ever is). I think that it's wrong to steal mostly, but not if you're in desperatly need.

6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?
Either hang out with friends, or hang out with you guys.
Or play volleyball.


7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?
Sometimes I do, sometimes I dont. Depends on if I have a good day or not.

8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?
I dont think of the future much, but I've always wanted to be a lawyer. I dont know if I actually succeed to be one, though. [img]smile.gif[/img]

9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?
Again, cant answer this, cause I dont have a clue.

10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?
I go with the newspaper, and sometimes takes small jobs. But it's not like I would do anything just to get money. [img]smile.gif[/img]


see ya!

1. If you aren't already in college, do you plan to attend college?
That's the plan. (Please let me get accepted!) [img]tongue.gif[/img]

2. If you are thinking of going to college, can you tell me why? Was it your idea, your parents idea or do you want fame, money, etc...? Or maybe it's just because everyone else is? What is your reason? (if you are IN college now, answer this too, if you like! [img]smile.gif[/img] )
It was my own idea. To be honest I don't know what *else* to do. I'm not thrilled with the idea of killing people. So the military is definitely out.

3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?
Yes. I'd like to think my dad for a few things. For his huge confidence in me and not being overly tough on me. That was sarcasm btw. Moving on...

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?
Nope I listen to whatever they say. I don't like getting in trouble, and they are my parents.

5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please! [img]smile.gif[/img]
If you take something that isn't yours it's stealing. If you're starving and you *have* to steal food. I think it's okay imo.

6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?
Looks around for Marie. (Always makes fun of me.)
Videogames *cough* Anti-social? You could call me that...


7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?
I don't dislike it. The main problem I see with it is that adults think we're joking when we say it isn't easy for everyone. School *is* my job buddy, and I only attend two less hours than you do. So there!

8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?
Probably. I'd like to write someday and I practice my caclulus enough, I could program... stuff.*checks for marie again*

9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?
To find someone that I like, and that likes me back. That's everyones dream isn't it?

10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?
Nope, that is for summer only. I mow lawns when I need cash though.

I would like to become a commisioned officer, maybe a pilot, not sure yet, and additionally, it opens up a lot of doors for you
3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?
I usually calmly debate till either we come to an agreeable solution, or I know I won't get any further with them, luckly I don't have to deal with stuff like that anymore
5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please!
Stealing is taking something that is not yours, and ALSO is someone elses, if it belcngs to no one, or if say it has no identifying marks and the owner does not appear to know where it is, that is not stealing (ie. lost cash/coins) and yes, stealing is always wrong, even if understandable
6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?
Talking online or on the phone with friends (The Lady Blue)
7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?
I like School, although it is often very boring and I don't feel that are really teaching me anything, but when they do, it's cool, you meet people there and make friends.
8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?
I have already found a rewarding career, and actually, I plan on using it to gain an even better one, I am interested in working for the CIA
9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?
... Zshnette
10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?
I am in the Air Force as an Intelligence specialist, I have no need to do odd jobs, but I do community service for fun

1. If you aren't already in college, do you plan to attend college?
Yes, I plan to attend

2. If you are thinking of going to college, can you tell me why? Was it your idea, your parents idea or do you want fame, money, etc...? Or maybe it's just because everyone else is? What is your reason? (if you are IN college now, answer this too, if you like! [img]smile.gif[/img] )
Because it's the smartest thing to do-gain a higher level of education. It makes it easier to get good jobs and move to the next level.

3. Do you respect your parents? If not, why?
Tough question. I respect them because they are my elders and it's just what I have to do-not because of the kind of people they are or because they are good people.

4. If your parents tell you to do something, do you autmoatically do the opposite? Think of it but do what they ask? Debate the issue with them til you come to a mutually agreeable solution? In other words, how do you feel about their authority over you?
I usually do what they say and avoid conflict.

5. What do you think stealing is? In other words tell me some situations you'd consider to be stealing. Also, do you think it's wrong always, sometimes, never, to steal? Explain if you say sometimes or never, please! [img]smile.gif[/img]
Stealing is taking something from someone that isn't yours to take. Stealing is wrong.

6. What is your favorite way to spend time if you are able to do it?
With my friends, doing something fun or sleeping.

7. Do you like school? Why do you or don't you like it?
I like school because being there means I don't have to be home. It's easy and is an opportunity to see my friends.

8. Do you think you will find a rewarding job/career one day? What kind of work are you interested in?
I certainly hope so. I have no idea at this time (better start thinking though [img]smile.gif[/img] )

9. What's your most precious dream? I mean what do you want to do more than anything else in your life? If you could have or do anything you wanted right now...what would it be?
To be happy and successful. And for my family to be too.

10. Do you have a part time job now? What is it? Do you do odd jobs for money, like shovel driveways or such?
Well, I help my parents on our ranch in my spare time and during the summer. But, I don't get paid of course. Other than that I have no means of making an income.
