I was going to pick B until I learned that another person would be in the room with me. Oh well, I guess A is ore entertaining anyway. I hope I'm getting paid for my data entry task otherwise I pick neither.

The things have happened to me. I think I'm smiling, but people tell me I'm not. Smiling seems unnatural unless it's spontaneous. I also remember several times in my life where my father got mad at me for having "a face". He told me to get that look off my face and I had no idea what he was talking ...

I have decided to remain a theist. I enjoy religion too much to break away. I realize that it is only my own doubt that keeps me from fully embracing my faith and that will pass. After analyzing my own past and potential future, it makes sense to remain a christian. Plus, today our congregation sang...

I define myself as a protestant Christian. I grew up in a Christian home and that's where i received my values and beliefs. Religion has always been a critical part of my life because the only place I really socialize with people is at church, my entire moral system is based on Christianity, and som...

One of my earliest memories is being told that Santa Claus doesn't exist and already knowing. I don't remember ever believing in him. I also plan and not making my children believe in Santa. They will know of the historical Saint Nicholas of Turkey and the birth of Christ but we will not celebrate t...

I consider myself religious. I was raised in a religious home and got it ingrained somewhat early on, although I wouldn't say my beliefs are aligned perfectly with my parents. Christianity is comforting to me. It tells me that everything happens for a reason and that no matter what, everything's goi...

I'd say mine was sort of a blessing. Not having many friends and sometimes none at all caused me to have little influences from the outside world. I filled a lot of my time up with reading, mostly religious literature and zoology. So now I have become a pretty moral and philosophical guy with a stro...

I day dream. Not as much as the other people on this post, but still everyday. I usually do it when I'm listening to music or moving, or both. My favorite thing to day dream about is video games. My least favorite thing to day dream about is movies. Especially movies that make you think or are open ...

I have terrible short term memory as well. I forget what people have told me during the day and forget to tell other people things I've learned during the day. I also forget where I've put things. There are many times I've forgotten where I've put something and it's not where it usually is. Like the...

I feel guilty for everything I mess up on. The guilt usually only lasts about an hour, but I still remember what went wrong. I rarely talk to people outside my family so I don't usually have the opportunity to say the wrong thing. When I do say the wrong thing, it does mess me up for a while. I stil...

Several years ago, I would just sit and listen to the starcraft music and do homework to music from Halo. Now Bioshock and Fallout have gotten me interested in very 40's and 50's old songs.

Halo Combat Evolved. My PS2 broke so our dad got us (me and my siblings) an xbox that came with Halo 1 and 2. It seemed like a stupid game at the time and I hated the idea of a first person perspective. I had spent all my time playing Ratchet and Clank beforehand. They became the first games in a li...

My dreams are always nonsensical. I'll think their real up until I wake up. The dream and emotions will still feel real until I go back and analyze and realize that nothing in the dream made sense whatsoever. I rarely have nightmares, but when I do there about me running from someone or something Th...

I have similar problems. I can't seem to understand anything when under stress and if I don't understand something it affects my understanding of everything I'm told after that. If my chemistry teacher teaches the class something that I don't understand, I begin to believe I'm going to fail the clas...

I have never been in a relationship, but I have had a crush. It was on a girl in high school who was better than me in every aspect. I rarely talked to her and by now she's gone. I hope to find someone similar to her or a woman similar to me when I move to a university.
