Writer's Block: Teacher of the year

Have you ever had a teacher who made a profound difference in your life? How did they influence and/or inspire you?

I had an english teacher my senior year of high school who made an amazing difference on how I learned and how I wrote my papers. Instead of just giving us the answers when we asked for help, he would question our questions to make us think, which would in turn lead us to finding the right answer on our own. He was just an amazing teacher and I know iI learned more in his semester long class than I learned in any of my honors classes the years before.

Writer's Block: The tenth time's the charm

What movie have you seen the most times in your life? How many times have you seen it? Will you ever grow tired of it?

I have seen Scream probably over 100 times in my life. I love it so much and I can quote every line in the movie. I don't think I'll ever grow tired of it. I go on streaks where I just want to watch it every day for a week straight and then I wont watch it for months.

Writer's Block: Do-over!

If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?

I would keep it for myself (selfish, I know) and I would want my life to stay exactly the same, except I would like to have done a few things that I was afraid to do the first time around and that I still kick myself for every single day.

Writer's Block: Solo traveler

Do you find it very hard to open up to people? Why or why not? What are the benefits and disadvantages of being emotionally guarded?

I am very open with everyone about everything. I figure that if I have something to hide, maybe I shouldnt have done that something. And since I dont really regret anything I've done, I don't see a point in hiding it from people.
