Monday Mission
1. Many children have blankets, or a favorite nubby stuffed animal that they like to keep near them for security. Do you recall what you had for your "security blanket" as a child? When did you finally give it up? What brought that about?
I had a satin bear that I carried around for a long time when I was little. It was light purple and wonderful. I think I eventually grew out of it but I still have it on a chair in my room at home.
2. Now that you are a big kid, what do you have to give you that same sense of security? Sadly enough, my Paddington Bear that my mum got for me on a trip she took to London. When I'm alone, he's in my bed with me.
3. With a little over four months left in 2002, have you accomplished everything you wanted to for the year? Is there anything that you would like to accomplish before the year is over?
I never set goals for the year, since I'm bad about completing them. Although I do have a few things I need to accomplish before the end of the year like getting a job, finding an apartment and other more mundane kinds of things.
4. I don't know about you, but it seems to me children have it pretty good these days. Game systems, computers in the home, microwaves, cable TV, the internet, cell phones and pagers, they certainly have a wider variety of technology than most of us did as children. What modern convenience, if any,
do you think it would be good for children today to do without? What would they gain?
I think it's all good in moderation. It's the parents that let their kids get away with getting everything they want from the video games to the cells phones that causes problems.
5. Many of us have one thing in which we believe we excel. What do you do better than most?
I'd like to think cooking. But I'm still working on that. I'm not sure really.
6. In the United States, and possibly other countries, teenagers in High School usually wind up falling into several social circles or "cliques." Stoners, Rich Kids, Jocks, Cheerleaders, Band, Drama, Goths, and so on (though the names are probably different today). What High School "clique" did you find yourself in? Was it by choice or did it just happen? Did you look down on other groups? (Aw it's ok, it was/is High School, we all did dumb stuff)
I hung around with people from all groups. I was a floater. I played volleyball, did the drama thing, etc and was friends with people from all groups, but never really "made it" into one specific one. I think it was a good thing. Although my high school wasn't very big (about 160 in the graduating class), it definitely was divided. Except right before graduation. Which I found some what odd. I mean people who looked down on other kids were like "Yeah we're one great class" and it seemed so fake and phoney.
7. (it begins) I have great news! I won the contest and we now have plane tickets to anywhere in the world. The bad news is we have to pick a place now and leave in the morning. I can't decide where to go, so you get to pick. Where should we go, and what is the first thing we should do when we get there? London. And spend the day wandering the British Museum.
BONUS: Must I beg you? Yes. You look so pretty down on your knees :)

Monday Memories
Camping. My first camping trip that I remember went okay. Although I remember my dad and stepmom going over the safety stuff and telling me that if we left food out over night bears might come by. I spent most of the night awake, jumping at every noise outside the tent, thinking it was a bear.
