50 Questions

50 Questions to Get to Know Someone
I feel like if you wanna take the time to get to know me then read my blog. I have plenty of thoughts, memories, opinions, and other things on there but someone once told me to look up this subject on google and so I went through and did the first set of questions that popped up. Here we go:
  1. What was your favorite food when you were a child?

  2. A:  Cereal. That never went away in its entirety even as an adult. Last time I visited my uncle, I couldn't sleep and I went into the kitchen and he already had a bowl and spoon out for me and was eating his bowl. We are a little similar. And as a kid, my favorite kind was probably either Kix or Crispix.

  3. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?

  4. A:  "Our Song" by Ron Pope

  5. What is one of your favorite quotes?

  6. A:  "He smiled understandingly–much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just so far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey." - The Great Gatsby

  7. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?

  8. A:  Indoor activity would probably be watching a movie, curled up next to someone on a couch, drinking hot chocolate. Outdoor activity would be traveling as a tourist sightseeing.

  9. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

  10. A:  I typically avoid cooking but it is only because it takes so much time and I hate cooking for one. If I can cook for someone or with someone than it isn't so bad.

  11. What is your favorite form of exercise?

  12. A:  Some kind of sport - soccer, racquetball, ultimate Frisbee, or basketball.

  13. What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?

  14. A:  I am a night owl and I like taking time to go on walks during the night so probably right around midnight. I like Friday nights because they are like a breath of fresh air and the real start to the weekend. And month of the year would be November. Fall is either in full color by this point or just starting. The air is cool and crisp so you can feel and taste the change in the seasons. There is Thanksgiving so that is an excuse to eat a ton, holidays, football, and an excuse to spend time with family. Lastly, it is officially the beginning of sweatshirt and hot cocoa season.

  15. What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?

  16. A:  Least favorite mode of transportation is by horse. I have never been a big horse guy.

  17. What is your favorite body part?

  18. A:  The first thing I subconsciously look for is a runner's bum and eyes. I guess it is a way I can tell if someone really takes care of themselves and whether or not they are happy.

  19. What sound do you love?

  20. A:  Laughter of little children. I have always wanted a family and kids of my own. Children just have this way to make you smile when they laugh.  A close second is the sound of rain.  Since my mission to Oregon, I have just fallen for the sound of rain.

  21. If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
