Insights Into Teens: Episode 69 “Q&A Series: School, Interests and Activities”

In another of our question and answer series we talk about school, interests and activities. We’ll explore what aspects of school Madison enjoys the most, what classes she’s learning the most in, her favorite part of school and much more.

We’ll also talk about her hobbies, what video games she’s playing, her collecting hobbies, the music she likes to listen to and much more. We were joined this week by a viewer from Estonia who took advantage of the opportunity to pose some of their own questions in a unique two way conversation.

this is episode 69 one of our Q&A series

0:00:57.260,0:01:02.300
we’ll be talking about school interests

0:01:08.180,0:01:12.710
Madison Whelan hi everyone how you doing

0:01:11.150,0:01:15.530
today Maddie pretty good

0:01:12.710,0:01:18.170
that was your week this week kinda

0:01:15.530,0:01:21.470
normal slowing down now since school’s

0:01:18.170,0:01:24.890
almost over that’s good the boring was

0:01:21.470,0:01:26.810
it I mean I especially I remember

0:01:24.890,0:01:28.550
Tuesday was one of the most boring ones

0:01:26.810,0:01:30.830
and the point that I decided you know

0:01:28.550,0:01:34.190
what not getting up early I’m good just

0:01:30.830,0:01:35.539
gonna sleep through the day okay well I

0:01:34.190,0:01:37.509
know because you didn’t say goodbye to

0:01:35.539,0:01:41.170
me in the morning when I went to work

0:01:37.509,0:01:48.080
that’s okay here coming up fast on the

0:01:41.170,0:01:50.119
lazy hazy days of summer so well I’m

0:01:48.080,0:01:53.240
sure have some podcasts on how to keep

0:01:50.119,0:01:57.229
busy this summer so this week is another

0:01:53.240,0:02:00.020
Q&A we will be talking about school

0:01:57.229,0:02:02.060
since this was actually scheduled for a

0:02:00.020,0:02:03.590
few weeks out but in a few weeks you

0:02:02.060,0:02:04.549
won’t be in school when you’re not in

0:02:03.590,0:02:08.090
school now right

0:02:04.549,0:02:09.170
so you’re still schooling from home but

0:02:08.090,0:02:11.450
I figure everybody get this in before

0:02:09.170,0:02:13.150
the end of school otherwise we wouldn’t

0:02:11.450,0:02:16.400
have all that much to talk about so

0:02:13.150,0:02:18.980
we’ll be talking about I will be asking

0:02:16.400,0:02:22.910
you questions on school some of your

0:02:18.980,0:02:25.160
interests and hobbies and activities so

0:02:22.910,0:02:33.260
are we ready to get started sure why not

0:02:25.160,0:02:35.269
all right let’s get into it so the first

0:02:33.260,0:02:37.670
set of questions that we’re going to ask

0:02:35.269,0:02:39.590
you about are various things about

0:02:37.670,0:02:42.610
school and I think a lot of these we’ve

0:02:39.590,0:02:45.140
probably asked in some form or another

0:02:42.610,0:02:48.860
through the various podcasts that we’ve

0:02:45.140,0:02:50.329
had but it would be nice to sort of

0:02:48.860,0:02:55.640
touch base and get them all together in

0:02:50.329,0:02:57.260
one little odd cast here so the first

0:02:55.640,0:03:01.940
question right off the bat is but it’s

0:02:57.260,0:03:03.050
your favorite class in school well I’d

0:03:01.940,0:03:06.050
say my favorite

0:03:03.050,0:03:10.730
um what skills although I just had it

0:03:06.050,0:03:12.380
this year and I really I think just took

0:03:10.730,0:03:14.750
a liking the skills although it wasn’t

0:03:12.380,0:03:18.710
one of the classes that stayed the

0:03:14.750,0:03:21.710
entire year it was just an amount of

0:03:18.710,0:03:24.410
days split up between four other

0:03:21.710,0:03:26.960
specials but I really took a liking the

0:03:24.410,0:03:29.570
skills especially since it had to deal

0:03:26.960,0:03:32.060
with technology and creativity so

0:03:29.570,0:03:35.900
describe what what all the skills were

0:03:32.060,0:03:38.510
well skills was basically coding and

0:03:35.900,0:03:41.810
although we had talked a bit more about

0:03:38.510,0:03:45.050
it in computers we really dive deeper

0:03:41.810,0:03:48.290
into it with skills skills was

0:03:45.050,0:03:51.650
technically a more refined computer

0:03:48.290,0:03:57.250
class um speak specifically based on

0:03:51.650,0:04:00.050
coding and also creating sprites okay so

0:03:57.250,0:04:03.920
I just really took a liking to it

0:04:00.050,0:04:06.650
because it not only let me because I

0:04:03.920,0:04:09.860
really do like coding because it takes

0:04:06.650,0:04:13.420
technology and creativity and meshes

0:04:09.860,0:04:17.180
them together into one really cool

0:04:13.420,0:04:19.580
activity that I so happen to enjoy very

0:04:17.180,0:04:23.150
cool very cool good answer I like the

0:04:19.580,0:04:25.280
answer well if I want to ask the favor

0:04:23.150,0:04:27.950
what is your least favorite I have to

0:04:25.280,0:04:32.180
ask as well most of us know this already

0:04:27.950,0:04:34.850
it would be my physical education or PE

0:04:32.180,0:04:37.220
and why is that I actually have multiple

0:04:34.850,0:04:40.120
reasons not because of the whole

0:04:37.220,0:04:45.280
physical activity thing some of the

0:04:40.120,0:04:48.770
games or lessons we had on different

0:04:45.280,0:04:53.419
games I guess um they weren’t that bad

0:04:48.770,0:04:56.600
it was just I hated the fact of having

0:04:53.419,0:04:58.580
to be sweating afterwards and the fact

0:04:56.600,0:05:00.260
that my ela classroom was upstairs and

0:04:58.580,0:05:01.490
on the other side of the building I

0:05:00.260,0:05:04.700
never liked that

0:05:01.490,0:05:07.940
I never liked ever not like get changed

0:05:04.700,0:05:09.860
for it and honestly they my relationship

0:05:07.940,0:05:11.750
with the kids there most of the kids

0:05:09.860,0:05:15.200
there I didn’t have good relationships

0:05:11.750,0:05:16.780
with and in my other classes I was kind

0:05:15.200,0:05:21.370
of decent with the other kids but I

0:05:16.780,0:05:26.260
just found and they said that I didn’t

0:05:21.370,0:05:27.970
really know I didn’t really I didn’t

0:05:26.260,0:05:31.900
have good relationships with those kids

0:05:27.970,0:05:34.360
um half of half of the classes were

0:05:31.900,0:05:36.070
actually eighth grade and many of the

0:05:34.360,0:05:38.020
kids were very competitive and I never

0:05:36.070,0:05:39.639
liked having that competitive having to

0:05:38.020,0:05:42.310
play with the competitive kids because

0:05:39.639,0:05:46.750
I’m not very competitive I just make

0:05:42.310,0:05:50.890
sure to just have enough credit to get

0:05:46.750,0:05:55.210
buy-in um for that just I never liked it

0:05:50.890,0:05:57.730
for multiple reasons so in for the sake

0:05:55.210,0:06:00.430
of not dwelling on the negative even

0:05:57.730,0:06:03.130
though it was a negative question what

0:06:00.430,0:06:08.050
good things are there about gym give me

0:06:03.130,0:06:10.240
one good thing about phys ed well if you

0:06:08.050,0:06:13.090
do end up having friends in there it’s

0:06:10.240,0:06:15.729
kind of nice I mean I had a few friends

0:06:13.090,0:06:18.790
that I knew somewhere in some of my

0:06:15.729,0:06:22.930
other classes um other friends I got

0:06:18.790,0:06:25.510
along with but I guess another good

0:06:22.930,0:06:27.910
thing was that whenever you I’d have

0:06:25.510,0:06:30.880
like good luck because I’m not very

0:06:27.910,0:06:32.560
lucky much wit when it comes to physical

0:06:30.880,0:06:35.500
activities but I remember specific

0:06:32.560,0:06:38.320
moments to where good things happen like

0:06:35.500,0:06:41.680
when we were playing volleyball um just

0:06:38.320,0:06:43.720
before we were about to leave on one of

0:06:41.680,0:06:46.300
the first days we were doing it I had

0:06:43.720,0:06:51.850
and I was never good at hitting the ball

0:06:46.300,0:06:55.060
but when I hit it it like was on the the

0:06:51.850,0:06:57.039
net and it was like it was like on the

0:06:55.060,0:06:59.260
net and you didn’t know where it would

0:06:57.039,0:07:01.630
fall and it ended up falling on the

0:06:59.260,0:07:03.250
other teams side and like the one eighth

0:07:01.630,0:07:04.840
grader who was the most imperative

0:07:03.250,0:07:06.880
eighth grader I’ve ever seen

0:07:04.840,0:07:08.830
just go for it but couldn’t get it and

0:07:06.880,0:07:11.110
it was like right before the um they

0:07:08.830,0:07:14.380
blew the whistle and honestly that was

0:07:11.110,0:07:17.380
one of my proudest moments then nice so

0:07:14.380,0:07:22.630
we actually have a question from the

0:07:17.380,0:07:25.810
chat room from a user in Estonia they

0:07:22.630,0:07:29.200
asked what was the greatest challenge in

0:07:25.810,0:07:30.150
the long-distance schooling meaning your

0:07:29.200,0:07:32.720
remotes going what

0:07:30.150,0:07:37.470
your biggest challenge um my biggest

0:07:32.720,0:07:40.260
challenge I’d say was getting off

0:07:37.470,0:07:44.010
schedule I think getting off the

0:07:40.260,0:07:47.070
schedule kind of didn’t help at all my

0:07:44.010,0:07:48.360
traffic in the beginning I tried to keep

0:07:47.070,0:07:55.080
like a timer

0:07:48.360,0:07:56.820
um for the classes and I eventually got

0:07:55.080,0:07:58.710
off that schedule because I realized

0:07:56.820,0:08:01.020
that math took longer than it used to

0:07:58.710,0:08:06.510
and some of my subjects took less time

0:08:01.020,0:08:11.000
so as as time went on I stopped having

0:08:06.510,0:08:14.280
the schedule and it was a little more

0:08:11.000,0:08:16.860
complicated I might have actually lost

0:08:14.280,0:08:18.630
focused a few times because of it so I

0:08:16.860,0:08:19.890
think getting off schedule was the main

0:08:18.630,0:08:22.170
thing and I mean I’m pretty sure we

0:08:19.890,0:08:23.550
talked about it last time so yeah yeah

0:08:22.170,0:08:25.140
that whole scheduling thing was really

0:08:23.550,0:08:30.150
tough and you don’t really appreciate

0:08:25.140,0:08:32.280
how important it is when you do it every

0:08:30.150,0:08:34.170
day you know where it really does

0:08:32.280,0:08:36.960
mentally prepare you for that next class

0:08:34.170,0:08:38.430
and that next class and then you know

0:08:36.960,0:08:41.240
when you get outside of that rhythm

0:08:38.430,0:08:45.240
there it throws things out of whack so

0:08:41.240,0:08:48.330
the next question that I had was which

0:08:45.240,0:08:51.210
class are you learning the most in um

0:08:48.330,0:08:53.220
I’d say definitely math because not just

0:08:51.210,0:08:54.990
I mean it was probably just because we

0:08:53.220,0:08:59.760
were in the accelerated math and the

0:08:54.990,0:09:02.700
fact that um we were having like half of

0:08:59.760,0:09:05.130
we were basically learning like cat I

0:09:02.700,0:09:07.890
think half the time we were learning the

0:09:05.130,0:09:10.350
eighth grade lessons because advanced

0:09:07.890,0:09:12.390
math goes really fast like you have one

0:09:10.350,0:09:13.770
lesson you have the homework you turn in

0:09:12.390,0:09:14.610
the homework and then you just go on to

0:09:13.770,0:09:17.160
the next lesson

0:09:14.610,0:09:20.400
um so I’d say math you’d learn more

0:09:17.160,0:09:22.440
because we learned a bunch of we had a

0:09:20.400,0:09:24.420
bunch of lessons that were based on the

0:09:22.440,0:09:26.460
eighth grade skills so I’d say there was

0:09:24.420,0:09:29.190
where we learn the most okay

0:09:26.460,0:09:33.720
that makes sense and if you move into

0:09:29.190,0:09:35.130
advanced science and advanced history

0:09:33.720,0:09:36.819
next year you might have some

0:09:35.130,0:09:41.919
competition for where you learn the most

0:09:36.819,0:09:45.519
yeah so let’s take fizz that out of the

0:09:41.919,0:09:47.439
possible answers for this next question

0:09:45.519,0:09:49.720
here because I want to do academic only

0:09:47.439,0:09:58.359
what class do you think you learn the

0:09:49.720,0:10:00.220
least in I mean I’m not I’m gonna say

0:09:58.359,0:10:04.660
that it might have been like a special

0:10:00.220,0:10:09.569
I’d say that moat I’d say that all of my

0:10:04.660,0:10:15.789
all of the four main classes were I

0:10:09.569,0:10:18.249
learned a lot in and I’d say I don’t

0:10:15.789,0:10:19.600
know which special it would be but I’d

0:10:18.249,0:10:21.819
have to go with one of the special

0:10:19.600,0:10:25.119
saying that I learned at least in I

0:10:21.819,0:10:27.129
don’t know which one I would put but I

0:10:25.119,0:10:29.229
wouldn’t put I know I wouldn’t put

0:10:27.129,0:10:35.049
computers or skills cuz I learned a lot

0:10:29.229,0:10:40.839
there it would have to be narrowed down

0:10:35.049,0:10:43.419
to either music Spanish or I mean I

0:10:40.839,0:10:45.850
don’t know about art because I couldn’t

0:10:43.419,0:10:48.609
actually go to arts I was in the middle

0:10:45.850,0:10:51.609
of skills when we had to do we went in a

0:10:48.609,0:10:53.350
quarantine so I don’t know about art I

0:10:51.609,0:10:55.659
don’t know the full curriculum for that

0:10:53.350,0:10:58.749
so would have to be either music or

0:10:55.659,0:11:01.359
Spanish okay good answer another

0:10:58.749,0:11:06.549
question from the chat room did you get

0:11:01.359,0:11:08.350
burned out easily working I’m assuming

0:11:06.549,0:11:10.119
the question still related to the remote

0:11:08.350,0:11:12.189
learning but working in this environment

0:11:10.119,0:11:14.229
did you get burnt out on any subjects or

0:11:12.189,0:11:16.479
an on school in general it would just be

0:11:14.229,0:11:19.629
math I think because math took me the

0:11:16.479,0:11:21.069
most amount of time and sometimes I

0:11:19.629,0:11:23.739
didn’t actually understand it because

0:11:21.069,0:11:26.199
the teacher wasn’t there to explain it

0:11:23.739,0:11:28.569
or give a lecture on it and I’d say I

0:11:26.199,0:11:30.609
got burned out mainly in math like I

0:11:28.569,0:11:34.329
said it took the most amount of time and

0:11:30.609,0:11:38.889
it took over um an hour and an hour and

0:11:34.329,0:11:41.019
20 minutes so it was a pretty long it

0:11:38.889,0:11:45.489
I’m pretty sure I got burned out a lot

0:11:41.019,0:11:47.289
because of it and um after after math I

0:11:45.489,0:11:48.939
would just go to an easier subject

0:11:47.289,0:11:50.440
because I didn’t or just take a break

0:11:48.939,0:11:53.890
because math it just burn

0:11:50.440,0:11:56.440
out so much okay that makes sense math

0:11:53.890,0:12:00.480
is hard yep that math was always my weak

0:11:56.440,0:12:02.710
spot in school – all things considered

0:12:00.480,0:12:06.490
do you like going to school

0:12:02.710,0:12:10.720
alright say half in half okay on one

0:12:06.490,0:12:12.430
hand I took school to be like a time

0:12:10.720,0:12:14.470
where I saw some of my friends that I

0:12:12.430,0:12:18.430
didn’t normally see on a regular basis

0:12:14.470,0:12:20.260
and I did like most of the subjects

0:12:18.430,0:12:24.250
especially the specials and I always

0:12:20.260,0:12:27.330
took hurt a feeling for science but on

0:12:24.250,0:12:29.650
the other hand sometimes I would get

0:12:27.330,0:12:32.470
there was like work that I didn’t

0:12:29.650,0:12:34.900
understand or there were just people I

0:12:32.470,0:12:39.400
didn’t want to see at school or it’s

0:12:34.900,0:12:40.630
just because I didn’t really have um it

0:12:39.400,0:12:43.210
was like in the beginning of the school

0:12:40.630,0:12:44.980
year where i sat with people but I never

0:12:43.210,0:12:47.770
talked to them and I just ate alone

0:12:44.980,0:12:49.870
because I didn’t have many friends

0:12:47.770,0:12:54.160
until I made an actual friend at lunch

0:12:49.870,0:12:56.770
so I’d say it’s half and half I kind of

0:12:54.160,0:12:58.270
liked going to school but I also didn’t

0:12:56.770,0:13:01.120
let go into school so I’d go somewhere

0:12:58.270,0:13:04.420
in the middle so would do you like the

0:13:01.120,0:13:06.730
current arrangement more now where

0:13:04.420,0:13:09.120
you’re working your schooling remotely

0:13:06.730,0:13:15.640
or would you rather be going into school

0:13:09.120,0:13:18.300
um well I liked the scheduling in school

0:13:15.640,0:13:22.360
and the fact that I had more

0:13:18.300,0:13:24.310
organization but on the fact that I was

0:13:22.360,0:13:28.420
able to actually work from home for

0:13:24.310,0:13:30.370
school was kind of nice so I guess – out

0:13:28.420,0:13:32.470
there I’m honestly kind of indecisive

0:13:30.370,0:13:35.230
about this okay I can understand that

0:13:32.470,0:13:38.680
another question from the chat room what

0:13:35.230,0:13:42.850
could of the teachers have done better

0:13:38.680,0:13:48.280
while remote learning um I said I think

0:13:42.850,0:13:50.710
um maybe explaining some of the lessons

0:13:48.280,0:13:52.870
a little better I remember some of my

0:13:50.710,0:13:56.470
teachers including my ela teacher like

0:13:52.870,0:13:59.950
would read chapters from our novel to us

0:13:56.470,0:14:02.899
because we had um quizzes each week on

0:13:59.950,0:14:05.809
enough on chapters of our novel um

0:14:02.899,0:14:09.079
and I definitely really took into the

0:14:05.809,0:14:11.779
lectures like from history and math they

0:14:09.079,0:14:13.459
really helped me learn so if they could

0:14:11.779,0:14:15.829
do something like that I don’t know how

0:14:13.459,0:14:18.079
they would do it but it would be nice

0:14:15.829,0:14:20.689
for them to try and do that for like

0:14:18.079,0:14:24.009
remote learning but um I don’t know how

0:14:20.689,0:14:27.290
they do it so okay good answer

0:14:24.009,0:14:27.949
were you part of any clubs in school

0:14:27.290,0:14:30.499
this year

0:14:27.949,0:14:33.019
not really I remember I wanted to join

0:14:30.499,0:14:36.579
clubs like art club or drama club even

0:14:33.019,0:14:41.329
but I never knew how to sign up and I

0:14:36.579,0:14:44.240
never really knew I just don’t think I

0:14:41.329,0:14:45.949
actually had the enough passion for it I

0:14:44.240,0:14:49.490
mean I would have totally loved to join

0:14:45.949,0:14:52.699
a club but I don’t know I just didn’t

0:14:49.490,0:14:54.290
know how to it worked um so it didn’t

0:14:52.699,0:14:55.910
have the whole working the whole

0:14:54.290,0:14:58.550
homeschooling did not have a negative

0:14:55.910,0:15:01.579
impact on any of your extracurricular

0:14:58.550,0:15:04.129
activities then you plan on joining any

0:15:01.579,0:15:06.290
clubs in the coming school year I mean

0:15:04.129,0:15:08.240
it depends on how it feel especially

0:15:06.290,0:15:10.279
since I’m going into two extra advanced

0:15:08.240,0:15:12.319
classes while still doing advanced math

0:15:10.279,0:15:14.329
I’m not so sure are were you able to

0:15:12.319,0:15:17.389
join a club but you know that’s that’s a

0:15:14.329,0:15:20.179
lot going on yeah so let me twist this

0:15:17.389,0:15:22.730
around a little bit if you were made a

0:15:20.179,0:15:25.179
teacher like if you became a teacher

0:15:22.730,0:15:29.179
which subject would you want to teach

0:15:25.179,0:15:33.730
I’d say science because I always knew

0:15:29.179,0:15:36.350
that science was a really cool subject

0:15:33.730,0:15:40.129
even like when I was younger and I

0:15:36.350,0:15:42.559
really liked how we did the experiments

0:15:40.129,0:15:45.079
and I loved the way that and I loved

0:15:42.559,0:15:47.240
like the different curriculum on how its

0:15:45.079,0:15:50.959
we were learning about nature and one

0:15:47.240,0:15:53.240
point and matter and physics and I just

0:15:50.959,0:15:54.949
really liked science and I thought being

0:15:53.240,0:15:56.809
a science teacher would be something I

0:15:54.949,0:15:59.779
could actually be good at that’s kind of

0:15:56.809,0:16:04.459
cool I would totally yeah totally go

0:15:59.779,0:16:06.649
with that myself we’ve asked this before

0:16:04.459,0:16:08.089
but you know I’d love to dwell on it but

0:16:06.649,0:16:08.600
I think it’s worthwhile for this

0:16:08.089,0:16:11.029
discussion

0:16:08.600,0:16:14.559
are there any bullies in your school um

0:16:11.029,0:16:16.550
I haven’t actually seen people like

0:16:14.559,0:16:18.320
physically bully someone

0:16:16.550,0:16:19.880
I mean there’s not been any fights that

0:16:18.320,0:16:22.070
I know of

0:16:19.880,0:16:26.930
I know there’s like gossip and rumors

0:16:22.070,0:16:28.820
that exist but um I don’t know if there

0:16:26.930,0:16:32.000
were actually bullies there were just

0:16:28.820,0:16:35.990
people who were just mean I guess like

0:16:32.000,0:16:37.750
people who would criticize but I could

0:16:35.990,0:16:40.160
never say that they were like full-on

0:16:37.750,0:16:45.380
bullies I guess I mean I understand

0:16:40.160,0:16:48.200
bullying is an action and they were kind

0:16:45.380,0:16:49.310
pretty rude people in my school um

0:16:48.200,0:16:51.230
towards you

0:16:49.310,0:16:53.360
well there were people who were rude

0:16:51.230,0:16:57.350
towards me but also talking to my one

0:16:53.360,0:17:00.019
friend she said that people like mainly

0:16:57.350,0:17:04.449
eighth graders when she was at gym they

0:17:00.019,0:17:07.730
would make rude comments at her so um

0:17:04.449,0:17:11.510
okay well you know there are people out

0:17:07.730,0:17:13.550
there if you could choose who you could

0:17:11.510,0:17:16.640
sit by in class who would it be

0:17:13.550,0:17:18.740
it would have to be one of my I guess

0:17:16.640,0:17:22.850
just as long as it was someone I could

0:17:18.740,0:17:26.390
get along with and not someone who would

0:17:22.850,0:17:30.020
just not do any of the work or was lazy

0:17:26.390,0:17:31.730
or I mean I wouldn’t want I mean I would

0:17:30.020,0:17:36.770
like to sit next to my friends but I

0:17:31.730,0:17:38.300
don’t know if we I mean I guess sitting

0:17:36.770,0:17:40.460
next to my friend we would actually be

0:17:38.300,0:17:42.950
able to do the work better but just

0:17:40.460,0:17:45.410
saying next to someone who I know was a

0:17:42.950,0:17:48.500
good student and wouldn’t slack off um

0:17:45.410,0:17:50.470
would be nice okay that makes perfect

0:17:48.500,0:17:54.140
sense

0:17:50.470,0:17:56.210
what was your favorite part of lunch or

0:17:54.140,0:18:01.040
recess I’m guessing you don’t get recess

0:17:56.210,0:18:04.550
any more lunch I liked

0:18:01.040,0:18:07.940
lunch I guess when I met my one friend

0:18:04.550,0:18:12.530
we actually sat next to each other and I

0:18:07.940,0:18:14.690
liked talking with him and it took a

0:18:12.530,0:18:17.990
while for lunch to actually kind of sink

0:18:14.690,0:18:19.880
in before I met him I just sat with like

0:18:17.990,0:18:22.610
a group of girls who I never actually

0:18:19.880,0:18:25.400
talked to I just ate my lunch in peace

0:18:22.610,0:18:26.750
but I did like it when I met him and he

0:18:25.400,0:18:29.830
started sitting with me and we actually

0:18:26.750,0:18:32.350
had pretty nice conversations

0:18:29.830,0:18:34.779
and he normally let in my mood so nice

0:18:32.350,0:18:38.769
it’s always good to have a high point

0:18:34.779,0:18:40.659
like that what part of the school day do

0:18:38.769,0:18:45.940
you tend to look forward to and don’t

0:18:40.659,0:18:50.230
say the end of the day I’d say either

0:18:45.940,0:18:52.630
the special or lunch lunch is a time

0:18:50.230,0:18:55.450
where you can wind down and take a

0:18:52.630,0:18:57.460
breather and I liked lunch although it

0:18:55.450,0:19:00.460
was honestly I at the earliest lunch

0:18:57.460,0:19:02.769
which technically was breakfasts on half

0:19:00.460,0:19:05.590
days mommy would just joke about packing

0:19:02.769,0:19:08.110
waffles which honestly didn’t sound too

0:19:05.590,0:19:08.529
bad for lunch yeah you had a burly early

0:19:08.110,0:19:13.659
lunch

0:19:08.529,0:19:15.669
yeah and specials because I really liked

0:19:13.659,0:19:18.519
most of my specials I never really had

0:19:15.669,0:19:21.880
any problems with them and the specials

0:19:18.519,0:19:24.130
were more enjoyable and they were easier

0:19:21.880,0:19:27.909
to get better grades on and they weren’t

0:19:24.130,0:19:30.700
like um and I didn’t have to push so

0:19:27.909,0:19:34.450
much to try and learn I mean we had

0:19:30.700,0:19:36.220
quizzes and stuff but I was but the

0:19:34.450,0:19:38.200
material was quite easy and I actually

0:19:36.220,0:19:41.590
liked it and it was quite enjoyable for

0:19:38.200,0:19:43.419
me okay and I flipped a coin there and

0:19:41.590,0:19:46.149
asked you what part of the day did you

0:19:43.419,0:19:49.240
dread I’m pretty sure we all know that

0:19:46.149,0:19:51.460
and phys ed is a valid answer here yeah

0:19:49.240,0:19:53.590
that was the time I never liked like I

0:19:51.460,0:19:55.330
use described before I never I got a

0:19:53.590,0:19:56.649
relationships with the people there and

0:19:55.330,0:19:58.090
I hated the fact that I was always

0:19:56.649,0:20:00.820
sweaty at the end and had to go all the

0:19:58.090,0:20:02.740
way to my ela class so well sweat is

0:20:00.820,0:20:03.370
something that they tend to encourage in

0:20:02.740,0:20:05.139
phys ed

0:20:03.370,0:20:08.559
so you’re not gonna get away from that

0:20:05.139,0:20:10.570
anytime soon and the last question we

0:20:08.559,0:20:12.519
had about school was what do you think

0:20:10.570,0:20:16.500
you want to do when you graduate high

0:20:12.519,0:20:19.510
school oh I guess go to college I

0:20:16.500,0:20:22.389
honestly I mean if you’re talking career

0:20:19.510,0:20:26.260
wise I honestly don’t know no I mean

0:20:22.389,0:20:28.659
college is a valid answer there if you

0:22:25.780,0:22:30.820
activity you like to do after school

0:22:28.650,0:22:33.400

0:22:38.200,0:22:45.340
dinner yet so I guess I just go on

0:22:41.380,0:22:46.900
YouTube and see like some of the newer

0:22:45.340,0:22:49.780

youtubers posted and then one and after

0:22:49.780,0:22:54.190
a few minutes I would then start on

0:22:51.280,0:22:56.050
dinner okay all right well you make it

0:22:54.190,0:22:58.390

0:22:56.050,0:23:01.210
it cooked dinner and everything hey I

0:22:58.390,0:23:04.390
actually want you to do that yes you do

0:23:01.210,0:23:07.929
you’re such a good daughter what are

0:23:04.390,0:23:10.540
some of your hobbies um well I’m pretty

0:23:07.929,0:23:15.820
sure we all know that I like to draw I

0:23:10.540,0:23:17.740
also do creative writing I also like to

0:23:15.820,0:23:19.510
create different characters not just

0:23:17.740,0:23:22.960
drawing them but like coming up with

0:23:19.510,0:23:25.750
their stories and I do create them in a

0:23:22.960,0:23:28.270
game Gaja life I think I’ve talked about

0:23:25.750,0:23:31.600
that a few times before I play video

0:23:28.270,0:23:32.790
games and well types of video games and

0:23:31.600,0:23:35.830
I guess I watch

0:23:32.790,0:23:37.600
I guess my hobby can be like watching a

0:23:35.830,0:23:41.830
movie with mommy every night well most

0:23:37.600,0:23:43.179
nights so let’s focus on video games for

0:23:41.830,0:23:46.600
a second you say you play video games

0:23:43.179,0:23:49.540
what video games do you play I’ve been

0:23:46.600,0:23:52.300
really into this one video game The Sims

0:23:49.540,0:23:54.820
3 I don’t have the Sims 4 I just played

0:23:52.300,0:23:56.830
on the Sims 2 you right now um and I’ve

0:23:54.820,0:23:59.470
really liked the game and I have

0:23:56.830,0:24:01.330
different perspectives of it so um do

0:23:59.470,0:24:02.710
you want my digital scripted game no I

0:24:01.330,0:24:05.290
mean I think everyone knows what the

0:24:02.710,0:24:09.730
Sims is but what is it that you like

0:24:05.290,0:24:13.030
about the sins I like the fact that you

0:24:09.730,0:24:17.440
can create different stories and have

0:24:13.030,0:24:19.150
other perspectives and that you um with

0:24:17.440,0:24:22.030
some of the extra updates there are

0:24:19.150,0:24:24.040
really cool furnitures and I really like

0:24:22.030,0:24:25.760
actually designing the homes now that’s

0:24:24.040,0:24:27.170
a thing that I’ve actually been doing

0:24:25.760,0:24:28.700
the reason I’m creating most of the

0:24:27.170,0:24:33.920
families at this point is just to

0:24:28.700,0:24:37.720
they’ll have interior designing okay I

0:24:33.920,0:24:40.880
don’t know why I just really like how I

0:24:37.720,0:24:42.830
like just designing homes for different

0:24:40.880,0:24:43.730
families and I just think it’s a cool

0:24:42.830,0:24:45.950
concept

0:24:43.730,0:24:47.810
Seanie we talked about you becoming an

0:24:45.950,0:24:52.520
architect at some point or even an

0:24:47.810,0:24:54.410
interior designer did you play and don’t

0:24:52.520,0:24:56.800
chuckle about this do you play any

0:24:54.410,0:24:56.800
sports

0:24:57.190,0:25:06.290
anything no okay well so much for the

0:25:03.170,0:25:10.910
follow up questions there do you collect

0:25:06.290,0:25:13.960
anything yes I do one of my um I guess

0:25:10.910,0:25:16.940
I’ll just go off with my recent

0:25:13.960,0:25:21.020
collectibles I’d like to collect um pops

0:25:16.940,0:25:24.140
of different TV shows or characters that

0:25:21.020,0:25:27.140
I um like and I have an entire thing on

0:25:24.140,0:25:29.180
my one desk with all my pops I actually

0:25:27.140,0:25:31.280
just got two new ones that Mommy had

0:25:29.180,0:25:36.610
gotten me that I’m very thankful for and

0:25:31.280,0:25:41.060
I love them they’re adorable I’m also

0:25:36.610,0:25:42.590
into Legos and I collect like bags of

0:25:41.060,0:25:45.710
Legos whenever we used to go to

0:25:42.590,0:25:48.610
conventions because this is bag of Legos

0:25:45.710,0:25:51.200
yeah cuz there’s like so many little

0:25:48.610,0:25:54.710
collectibles like there’s basketballs

0:25:51.200,0:25:57.170
there’s like weird jellyfish heads that

0:25:54.710,0:25:59.000
I just I don’t know why I just thought

0:25:57.170,0:26:01.490
the little other collectibles not just

0:25:59.000,0:26:02.930
the fact that I have like walls and

0:26:01.490,0:26:04.940
stuff but the fact that they can

0:26:02.930,0:26:09.230
actually come with little accessories I

0:26:04.940,0:26:10.910
just love that um and I also and into

0:26:09.230,0:26:14.630
lost kitties they’re just like these

0:26:10.910,0:26:17.900
little cat little toys that are cats

0:26:14.630,0:26:21.620
that with doing sort of dáil I’m just

0:26:17.900,0:26:24.440
funny cat scenarios in a way and I just

0:26:21.620,0:26:26.270
really like having them and I do stories

0:26:24.440,0:26:28.840
with them and I make that and I designed

0:26:26.270,0:26:32.470
them as if they were my characters okay

0:26:28.840,0:26:33.960
very good answer do you play any musical

0:26:32.470,0:26:36.240
instruments

0:26:33.960,0:26:38.370
yes what do you play I played the

0:26:36.240,0:26:43.020
trumpet I know how to do a few songs on

0:26:38.370,0:26:45.649
the piano okay now are you planning on

0:26:43.020,0:26:49.440
continuing to play trumpet next year

0:26:45.649,0:26:52.490
depends mommy says that since I’m taking

0:26:49.440,0:26:55.230
on the advance a few advanced classes

0:26:52.490,0:26:57.029
give it two months to see if I can

0:26:55.230,0:26:58.140
actually handle ‘having band at the same

0:26:57.029,0:27:00.390
time because she doesn’t want me

0:26:58.140,0:27:03.929
skipping any of the advanced classes and

0:27:00.390,0:27:06.690
I think that’s a very smart move so

0:27:03.929,0:27:13.760
let’s talk weekend’s what do you like to

0:27:06.690,0:27:16.470
do most during the weekends I really

0:27:13.760,0:27:18.870
honestly I’m gonna sound lazy because of

0:27:16.470,0:27:21.929
this um I normally just like to sit on

0:27:18.870,0:27:24.210
my bed watch videos play games stuff

0:27:21.929,0:27:26.070
like that but I do like it when I’m able

0:27:24.210,0:27:27.899
to spend time with you guys like how we

0:27:26.070,0:27:31.080
have our talks at lunch and the fact

0:27:27.899,0:27:33.390
that we just like joke around about a

0:27:31.080,0:27:35.100
bunch of stuff and well and right now

0:27:33.390,0:27:36.570
you can’t go out and hang with your

0:27:35.100,0:27:40.679
friends or anything otherwise you’d be

0:27:36.570,0:27:42.390
doing that as well what type of music do

0:27:40.679,0:27:45.149
you like to listen to I don’t really

0:27:42.390,0:27:48.000
listen to a certain style I just listen

0:27:45.149,0:27:50.520
to songs that I just think sound cool or

0:27:48.000,0:27:52.710
I like the meaning of I just think I

0:27:50.520,0:27:55.200
just listen to music and I think of a

0:27:52.710,0:27:56.730
character and a scenario singing that

0:27:55.200,0:27:58.860
song or having the song play in the

0:27:56.730,0:28:02.100
background and have like the meaning of

0:27:58.860,0:28:03.899
the song be expressed through that I’m

0:28:02.100,0:28:05.250
just very imaginative at that point and

0:28:03.899,0:28:06.990
I just like listening to those kind of

0:28:05.250,0:28:10.140
songs that’s interesting everything

0:28:06.990,0:28:12.480
seems to be very character and story

0:28:10.140,0:28:14.669
driven with you you tend to go down that

0:28:12.480,0:28:18.330
path on a lot of things yep very

0:28:14.669,0:28:18.960
interesting what’s your favorite song

0:28:18.330,0:28:21.090
right now

0:28:18.960,0:28:22.500
I don’t really have a favorite song I

0:28:21.090,0:28:24.630
just listen to a bunch of songs that I

0:28:22.500,0:28:28.529
think sound cool and when I get tired of

0:28:24.630,0:28:32.120
them but excuse me what’s the last song

0:28:28.529,0:28:32.120
that you listen to today

0:28:36.370,0:28:43.539
I don’t really it wasn’t that memorable

0:28:39.279,0:28:48.159
yeah let’s talk book stealing reading

0:28:43.539,0:28:50.049
books um do comic books Cal absolutely

0:28:48.159,0:28:53.230
okay then yes I like reading comic books

0:28:50.049,0:28:58.150
and what style of comic books do you

0:28:53.230,0:29:01.570
like to read as it’s superhero stuff is

0:28:58.150,0:29:05.470
it comedy stuff is it horror stuff is it

0:29:01.570,0:29:07.630
you know cartoony stuff I’d say cartoony

0:29:05.470,0:29:10.750
stuff mostly comics I have are either

0:29:07.630,0:29:14.200
teen titan or a spongebob at this point

0:29:10.750,0:29:17.289
um I just like the comedy in them and

0:29:14.200,0:29:19.929
just I just like the TV shows in general

0:29:17.289,0:29:20.760
which is why I read the comics okay that

0:29:19.929,0:29:25.750
makes sense

0:29:20.760,0:29:27.669
so when you’re bored what do you what’s

0:29:25.750,0:29:31.230
your go-to and you’re bored to try to

0:29:27.669,0:29:33.850
get past that bad thing well I I

0:29:31.230,0:29:37.230
actually have this one notebook that I

0:29:33.850,0:29:40.659
made well not made I’m writing in it

0:29:37.230,0:29:43.450
where I put down I decided to make a

0:29:40.659,0:29:45.640
character I have their name their gender

0:29:43.450,0:29:49.149
their type of species because I create I

0:29:45.640,0:29:51.279
don’t normally create humans I have

0:29:49.149,0:29:53.350
their entire backstory written down any

0:29:51.279,0:29:56.110
families are family or friend members

0:29:53.350,0:29:58.809
and just all their general information

0:29:56.110,0:30:00.909
okay so use its character development

0:29:58.809,0:30:06.700
again pretty much now do you then go

0:30:00.909,0:30:08.649
back and and take from that character to

0:30:06.700,0:30:10.840
build stories with with those characters

0:30:08.649,0:30:13.299
I mean I also have this one no notebook

0:30:10.840,0:30:15.970
which I have which I decided to make

0:30:13.299,0:30:17.320
like diary entries with different

0:30:15.970,0:30:20.049
perspectives of people with different

0:30:17.320,0:30:23.110
world in different worlds like one

0:30:20.049,0:30:26.230
actual story I’m making was based off of

0:30:23.110,0:30:33.820
one of those diary entries I’m calling

0:30:26.230,0:30:37.330
it 2085 I think it was called and it was

0:30:33.820,0:30:39.070
based on this one girl who in the diary

0:30:37.330,0:30:42.010
entry it sounded like she was like a

0:30:39.070,0:30:44.380
normal girl going in elementary school

0:30:42.010,0:30:46.840
going to buy shoes with her father but

0:30:44.380,0:30:48.210
then you realized she’s going to I’m an

0:30:46.840,0:30:53.490
elementary school on another

0:30:48.210,0:30:55.620
planet and that and you eventually learn

0:30:53.490,0:30:58.230
her entire backstory saying how she

0:30:55.620,0:31:00.090
lives with her father and her younger

0:30:58.230,0:31:02.310
brother and how she wants to travel a

0:31:00.090,0:31:05.130
galaxy at one point like her mother

0:31:02.310,0:31:06.750
wanted to yet her father had yet and her

0:31:05.130,0:31:09.150
father conflicts with that and wants her

0:31:06.750,0:31:11.550
to go into law school so it’s sort of

0:31:09.150,0:31:13.710
like it sounds like she’d be a normal

0:31:11.550,0:31:16.020
character despite the fact that she’s on

0:31:13.710,0:31:18.150
another planet and that she’s going to

0:31:16.020,0:31:21.060
an elementary school on another planet

0:31:18.150,0:31:26.220
so interesting yeah it’s kind of that

0:31:21.060,0:31:30.210
twist to it so do you have a favorite

0:31:26.220,0:31:31.920
actor or actress that you follow not

0:31:30.210,0:31:36.650
really I don’t really go off of

0:31:31.920,0:31:40.350
celebrities I just the only I don’t I

0:31:36.650,0:31:44.850
just really I just watched like I don’t

0:31:40.350,0:31:47.190
really know I mean if it’s no it’s now I

0:31:44.850,0:31:50.070
mean a lot like for instance you know I

0:31:47.190,0:31:51.600
know that Tyco bikini is like one of my

0:31:50.070,0:31:53.640
favorite actors and one of my favorite

0:31:51.600,0:31:58.500
producers he he’s one of the directors

0:31:53.640,0:32:01.590
for the mandalorian but every character

0:31:58.500,0:32:06.000
he plays is I love the characters

0:32:01.590,0:32:07.680
because of the the the personality that

0:32:06.000,0:32:11.220
he brings to the characters that he

0:32:07.680,0:32:12.870
plays so I love watching them Denzel

0:32:11.220,0:32:15.390
Washington another one of my favorite

0:32:12.870,0:32:17.280
actors the man is just a consummate

0:32:15.390,0:32:19.050
professional when he when he plays

0:32:17.280,0:32:22.710
whatever character he plays Tom Hanks

0:32:19.050,0:32:25.080
same thing is there anyone like that

0:32:22.710,0:32:28.770
that you see in movies that sort of

0:32:25.080,0:32:30.690
stands out to you that that if nothing

0:32:28.770,0:32:32.540
else you just appreciate the talent that

0:32:30.690,0:32:35.000
they bring to the roles that they play I

0:32:32.540,0:32:37.380
mean I would if I watched more

0:32:35.000,0:32:39.090
live-action movies but at this point I

0:32:37.380,0:32:43.580
just watched cartoon movies a lot of

0:32:39.090,0:32:43.580
animation yeah okay that makes sense

0:32:44.120,0:32:51.800
what is something that you personally

0:32:47.700,0:32:55.830
feel very passionate about in life I

0:32:51.800,0:32:58.950
guess like could I have an example a bit

0:32:55.830,0:33:01.049
about it well are you passionate about

0:32:58.950,0:33:03.720
the arts are you passionate

0:33:01.049,0:33:06.809
about fighting injustice are you

0:33:03.720,0:33:09.779
passionate about helping others or

0:33:06.809,0:33:12.809
supporting a charity something like that

0:33:09.779,0:33:15.960
I’d say the arts because I definitely

0:33:12.809,0:33:18.629
think that expressing yourself with many

0:33:15.960,0:33:22.139
different assets like writing drawing or

0:33:18.629,0:33:23.940
music is just really good and as

0:33:22.139,0:33:25.950
although I don’t actually I’m not

0:33:23.940,0:33:27.869
actually a part of many clubs I do like

0:33:25.950,0:33:30.419
expressing my art in many different

0:33:27.869,0:33:33.720
forms okay and I kind of figured you’d

0:33:30.419,0:33:36.450
sort of go down that route because most

0:33:33.720,0:33:38.249
of what you do during the day is an

0:33:36.450,0:33:42.299
expression of art in some form or

0:33:38.249,0:33:47.190
another so how would you describe your

0:33:42.299,0:33:50.820
perfect day um I guess my perfect day

0:33:47.190,0:33:54.419
would be waking up going to school

0:33:50.820,0:33:56.489
without any real issues um know what’s

0:33:54.419,0:33:58.679
up not with anything with other students

0:33:56.489,0:34:01.830
being able to talk with my friends

0:33:58.679,0:34:05.070
coming home from school getting my

0:34:01.830,0:34:08.849
homework done pretty quick having a

0:34:05.070,0:34:11.089
little more time to spend on like

0:34:08.849,0:34:13.470
hobbies and stuff um

0:34:11.089,0:34:17.579
afterwards cooking a good meal that I

0:34:13.470,0:34:20.000
know I’m going to enjoy and having a

0:34:17.579,0:34:21.210
great conversation with you and mommy

0:34:20.000,0:34:24.799
okay

0:34:21.210,0:34:28.700
afterwards I don’t afterwards I just

0:34:24.799,0:34:31.889
retired for some rock band sure why not

0:34:28.700,0:34:32.399
that sounds nice it would typically be a

0:34:31.889,0:34:34.980
Friday

0:34:32.399,0:34:39.720
of course because Fridays always make it

0:34:34.980,0:34:41.579
better yeah I won’t argue with that so

0:34:39.720,0:34:44.099
we’ve talked about some of your artistic

0:34:41.579,0:34:52.409
talents what other talents or skills do

0:34:44.099,0:34:54.149
you do you think you have um well I know

0:34:52.409,0:34:56.480
character development but we already

0:34:54.149,0:34:56.480
know that

0:34:57.640,0:35:02.060
you’re a good cook I mean yeah I can

0:35:01.069,0:35:04.940
make meals

0:35:02.060,0:35:08.480
I wouldn’t say like I make gourmet meals

0:35:04.940,0:35:10.220
or anything like that I make I’m able to

0:35:08.480,0:35:12.200
make decent meals I’m not able I don’t

0:35:10.220,0:35:16.160
set the house on fire when I cook so

0:35:12.200,0:35:18.560
that’s gonna step up um you guys seem to

0:35:16.160,0:35:22.010
enjoy my meals although one of the main

0:35:18.560,0:35:24.260
meals like coke is spaghetti so you

0:35:22.010,0:35:28.730
can’t burn water sweetie yeah I can’t

0:35:24.260,0:35:31.670
burn water but yeah I’d say I’m pretty

0:35:28.730,0:35:34.910
okay on my cooking I do have a passion

0:35:31.670,0:35:37.730
for baking for some reason I just really

0:35:34.910,0:35:39.470
I remember um we actually made banana

0:35:37.730,0:35:42.530
bread and I really liked making the

0:35:39.470,0:35:44.930
banana bread and I just liked mixing and

0:35:42.530,0:35:47.000
getting my hands dirty in general okay

0:35:44.930,0:35:50.420
what about like gardening do you garden

0:35:47.000,0:35:52.490
um not really I just pick out weeds okay

0:35:50.420,0:35:54.650
you play rock band are you good at rock

0:35:52.490,0:35:56.569
band I mean I’m good on the drums I’m

0:35:54.650,0:35:58.790
okay what’s singing I just don’t sing a

0:35:56.569,0:36:01.369
lot okay and I’m not gonna put the job

0:35:58.790,0:36:03.200
and I’m not good with the guitar I don’t

0:36:01.369,0:36:05.900
know how about computers you like to do

0:36:03.200,0:36:07.550
your skills class with coding are you

0:36:05.900,0:36:09.890
good with computers and generally

0:36:07.550,0:36:12.050
figuring out real easier are they a

0:36:09.890,0:36:13.910
puzzle to you I mean I’d figure them out

0:36:12.050,0:36:16.400
like whenever someone else was having

0:36:13.910,0:36:19.520
like a difficulty with technology I try

0:36:16.400,0:36:24.050
to help out I definitely like um working

0:36:19.520,0:36:26.060
with technology um until the technology

0:36:24.050,0:36:28.880
gets a little frustrating and I end up

0:36:26.060,0:36:33.010
screaming at it so I know somebody else

0:36:28.880,0:36:35.780
who does that I would never have guessed

0:36:33.010,0:36:37.970
okay okay so you have other talents

0:36:35.780,0:36:40.730
other than just art it’s I guess is what

0:36:37.970,0:36:43.280
I’m trying to get at okay do you speak

0:36:40.730,0:36:45.770
any other languages other than English

0:36:43.280,0:36:48.140
well I don’t speak fluent like complete

0:36:45.770,0:36:50.210
fluent other languages but I do know how

0:36:48.140,0:36:52.310
to say certain words and certain

0:36:50.210,0:36:55.450
sentences in Spanish since I took a

0:36:52.310,0:36:58.369
Spanish class just the bad words no

0:36:55.450,0:37:01.280
daddy no I know how to say like

0:36:58.369,0:37:04.040
classroom objects hello goodbye stuff

0:37:01.280,0:37:06.800
like that the touristy stuff yeah okay I

0:37:04.040,0:37:09.150
don’t actually know how to say like hey

0:37:06.800,0:37:10.260
did you know with a Hey

0:37:09.150,0:37:12.779
did you hear about this really cool

0:37:10.260,0:37:13.980
video game and then like describe the

0:37:12.779,0:37:16.380
entire video game I don’t know how to

0:37:13.980,0:37:18.839
monologue in Spanish you don’t know

0:37:16.380,0:37:20.640
Spanish conversationally no I don’t know

0:37:18.839,0:37:22.380
how to monologue in spring so you’ve got

0:37:20.640,0:37:24.599
some of the vocabulary down you know how

0:37:22.380,0:37:26.130
some of the sentences are formed is it

0:37:24.599,0:37:28.500
something that you’d like to learn and

0:37:26.130,0:37:30.089
become fluid I mean it sounds cool it

0:37:28.500,0:37:32.279
would be nice to know a lot of language

0:37:30.089,0:37:36.440
besides English because Spanish is

0:37:32.279,0:37:39.089
another worldwide um sort of absolutely

0:37:36.440,0:37:43.079
and you know when I was in school I took

0:37:39.089,0:37:45.960
French class and never had an instance

0:37:43.079,0:37:48.359
of using French outside of that and that

0:37:45.960,0:37:50.970
wasn’t very good at it either but in

0:37:48.359,0:37:52.109
hindsight had I had I been able to make

0:37:50.970,0:37:54.569
that choice again I would have picked

0:37:52.109,0:37:58.349
Spanish I think Spanish is a much more

0:37:54.569,0:37:59.849
marketable skill and and you’re gonna

0:37:58.349,0:38:01.650
find a lot more people and your

0:37:59.849,0:38:04.890
day-to-day lives that speak Spanish than

0:38:01.650,0:38:09.930
you will French yeah unless you’re with

0:38:04.890,0:38:13.230
the Canada or France actually yeah so

0:38:09.930,0:38:15.869
the last question that we had today for

0:38:13.230,0:38:18.510
for the podcast was what is your

0:38:15.869,0:38:22.890
favorite place to hang out and what do

0:38:18.510,0:38:27.200
you like about it um I know this

0:38:22.890,0:38:30.299
question doesn’t really apply to now I

0:38:27.200,0:38:32.670
never really had a place where I hung

0:38:30.299,0:38:35.039
out um whenever me and my friends

0:38:32.670,0:38:36.750
couldn’t go to one of our parents house

0:38:35.039,0:38:40.529
because they couldn’t handle all of us

0:38:36.750,0:38:43.740
we were just like sitting nearby my our

0:38:40.529,0:38:45.480
yard and we just talked and I guess that

0:38:43.740,0:38:48.299
was one of the main places I hung out I

0:38:45.480,0:38:52.079
never actually went out on the town or

0:38:48.299,0:38:54.539
anything I just read up till now you’re

0:38:52.079,0:38:57.990
not a wild and crazy 13 year old no I’m

0:38:54.539,0:39:00.510
honestly kind of boring in a way I don’t

0:38:57.990,0:39:02.190
have a exciting lifestyle okay there’s

0:39:00.510,0:39:04.230
nothing wrong with that

0:39:02.190,0:39:06.329
when I was a kid you know I used to hang

0:39:04.230,0:39:08.010
out over my friend’s backyard he had a

0:39:06.329,0:39:11.309
pool so everyone sort of hung out over

0:39:08.010,0:39:13.529
his house but we would build forts in

0:39:11.309,0:39:17.099
his backyard and you know do everything

0:39:13.529,0:39:19.829
in his backyard so that was all we had

0:39:17.099,0:39:21.560
for questions today we’re gonna just

0:39:19.829,0:39:23.490
take a quick

0:39:21.560,0:39:26.040
transition here we’re not gonna actually

0:39:23.490,0:39:35.100
go to another ad we’ll come back and

0:39:26.040,0:39:37.170
we’ll get your closing remarks go for

0:39:35.100,0:39:39.120
your closing remarks okay so I don’t

0:39:37.170,0:39:41.760
really know what to say today other than

0:39:39.120,0:39:43.470
stay in school like everyone else says

0:39:41.760,0:39:45.810
although you can’t actually stay in

0:39:43.470,0:39:50.600
school you’re more remote learning in

0:39:45.810,0:39:54.390
schools so work on schoolwork I guess

0:39:50.600,0:39:59.940
okay well you heard of people work on

0:39:54.390,0:40:02.430
school work that has a good motto okay

0:39:59.940,0:40:04.530
how can I say like something for

0:40:02.430,0:40:07.920
interests and hobbies I mean sure like

0:40:04.530,0:40:08.880
follow your passion and interests okay

0:40:07.920,0:40:11.820
that’s fine

0:40:08.880,0:40:14.520
well we are gonna piggy back next week

0:40:11.820,0:40:18.840
on this podcast with a school related

0:40:14.520,0:40:20.220
one which is gonna be probably kind of a

0:40:18.840,0:40:22.340
little bit different for you I don’t

0:40:20.220,0:40:24.240
think it’s anything you’ve ever explored

0:40:22.340,0:40:27.840
but I think it’s worth having a

0:40:24.240,0:40:30.450
conversation about but until then we
