Insights Into Teens: Episode 81 “Getting To Know You Part 3”

In this third “Getting to Know You” episode we learn more about Madison through a series of questions, some of which we’ve never asked before and others are a status check on what’s changed since our last “Getting to Know You” podcast.

This session was inspired by some back to school questions Madison was answering this week. Her answers as with everything in the world today are colored by the current state of the COVID-19 crisis.

Surprising, despite the bleak outlook on the world today Madison is able to maintain a positive perspective on things. We asked a series of questions from habits and hobbies to family and friends and delve deeper into her personality. We learn a few things that even as her dad I wasn’t aware of. It was an eye opening and fun podcast this week. There are some great questions in this episode that I encourage other parents to engage their kids with, you might be pleasantly surprised at the answers you get.

different camera angles i started off

0:01:09.360,0:01:13.119
with different camera

0:01:10.320,0:01:14.479
camera angles today yep so how are you

0:01:13.119,0:01:17.759
doing today sweetheart

0:01:14.479,0:01:21.360
i’m doing pretty well pretty well

0:01:17.759,0:01:23.439
considering my first week of

0:01:21.360,0:01:25.520
school yeah how did that work out for

0:01:23.439,0:01:28.880
you you were all remote this week right

0:01:25.520,0:01:30.720
yep um we really didn’t do too much it

0:01:28.880,0:01:31.920
was sort of just an introduction

0:01:30.720,0:01:34.159
everything

0:01:31.920,0:01:35.040
pretty sure next week is gonna be the

0:01:34.159,0:01:38.079
first

0:01:35.040,0:01:41.520
full week because we only had

0:01:38.079,0:01:43.439
four days of this week so

0:01:41.520,0:01:45.840
okay so this is just sort of getting

0:01:43.439,0:01:48.000
into the swing of things

0:01:45.840,0:01:49.280
making sure all the technical issues are

0:01:48.000,0:01:51.280
worked out

0:01:49.280,0:01:52.320
and next week you can jump in and start

0:01:51.280,0:01:56.399
learning right

0:01:52.320,0:02:00.240
yep confidence level high um

0:01:56.399,0:02:03.680
somewhat somewhat i guess um

0:02:00.240,0:02:07.040
i guess if it was 1 to 10

0:02:03.680,0:02:10.560
10 being the most one being the least uh

0:02:07.040,0:02:13.520
i’d go somewhere around five maybe six

0:02:10.560,0:02:14.640
okay that’s not too bad yeah hopefully

0:02:13.520,0:02:15.520
we should be able to get through

0:02:14.640,0:02:17.440
everything and

0:02:15.520,0:02:18.560
uh i i think after a couple of weeks

0:02:17.440,0:02:19.680
you’ll get right into the swing of

0:02:18.560,0:02:21.840
things and you shouldn’t have any

0:02:19.680,0:02:25.200
problems

0:02:21.840,0:02:27.040
so this week we are talking uh about

0:02:25.200,0:02:28.480
getting to know you we’ve done two of

0:02:27.040,0:02:31.599
these in the past

0:02:28.480,0:02:34.080
uh i think we’ll find some of the

0:02:31.599,0:02:35.360
questions that we’re going to go over

0:02:34.080,0:02:36.879
today

0:02:35.360,0:02:38.800
were questions that we’ve asked you in

0:02:36.879,0:02:40.879
the past but

0:02:38.800,0:02:42.560
it was almost a year ago since we did

0:02:40.879,0:02:44.000
the last one of these

0:02:42.560,0:02:45.680
so some of your answers might be

0:02:44.000,0:02:47.680
different so

0:02:45.680,0:02:49.120
i want to keep doing these periodically

0:02:47.680,0:02:50.879
just to sort of

0:02:49.120,0:02:53.040
you know check in we’ll start adding

0:02:50.879,0:02:54.959
some different questions to it but

0:02:53.040,0:02:56.400
we’ll ask some old questions just to see

0:02:54.959,0:03:00.000
how things have changed

0:02:56.400,0:03:02.080
yep uh this actually came from

0:03:00.000,0:03:03.760
the inspiration for today’s episode came

0:03:02.080,0:03:05.040
from school this week right why don’t

0:03:03.760,0:03:09.519
you tell us about that

0:03:05.040,0:03:12.640
um yeah so um it came from yesterday

0:03:09.519,0:03:14.800
and my one um

0:03:12.640,0:03:17.200
yesterday was supposed to be like a do

0:03:14.800,0:03:18.879
now for all my classes so i had to cycle

0:03:17.200,0:03:21.120
through my classes

0:03:18.879,0:03:22.400
and one of the things that my math

0:03:21.120,0:03:25.599
teacher did

0:03:22.400,0:03:27.120
was sort of a get to know you quiz

0:03:25.599,0:03:29.840
which was the do now that we were

0:03:27.120,0:03:30.480
supposed to do and it was questions like

0:03:29.840,0:03:33.920
how

0:03:30.480,0:03:37.040
like what are your favorite blank and

0:03:33.920,0:03:40.000
um do you have a favorite blank

0:03:37.040,0:03:41.519
really um and what’s your favorite

0:03:40.000,0:03:43.120
subject that kind of thing

0:03:41.519,0:03:45.599
gotcha so we took some of those

0:03:43.120,0:03:46.959
questions we

0:03:45.599,0:03:50.159
kind of threw them together with some

0:03:46.959,0:03:52.319
other questions that we had from before

0:03:50.159,0:03:54.640
and i went out and dug up a bunch of

0:03:52.319,0:03:56.400
other questions that we can ask you

0:03:54.640,0:03:59.439
so it should be a fun episode today but

0:03:56.400,0:04:01.920

[Music]

0:06:43.759,0:06:48.560
so today we are getting to know maddie

0:06:46.319,0:06:50.400
with a series of questions

0:06:48.560,0:06:53.360
uh it’s a question and answer session

0:06:50.400,0:06:55.680
today but it’s all about you

0:06:53.360,0:06:56.880
so i took the questions that we did have

0:06:55.680,0:06:59.759
and like i

0:06:56.880,0:07:01.520
am want to do all the time i broke them

0:06:59.759,0:07:03.199
into categories so we’ll go down through

0:07:01.520,0:07:05.840
the categories

0:07:03.199,0:07:07.599
and they’re in no particular order i

0:07:05.840,0:07:08.319
just tried to split them up so that they

0:07:07.599,0:07:11.840
were in

0:07:08.319,0:07:13.680
you know fairly decent sized groups

0:07:11.840,0:07:15.599
let’s just start asking questions and

0:07:13.680,0:07:18.560
getting some answers here okay

0:07:15.599,0:07:19.280
alrighty all right first question i have

0:07:18.560,0:07:22.639
what is your

0:07:19.280,0:07:26.479
absolute favorite food okay

0:07:22.639,0:07:27.039
so i have a lot of different fruits that

0:07:26.479,0:07:31.120
i

0:07:27.039,0:07:33.759
have um a very good

0:07:31.120,0:07:35.360
relationship with i don’t know that i

0:07:33.759,0:07:36.000
like i have a lot of foods that i really

0:07:35.360,0:07:40.160
like

0:07:36.000,0:07:44.319
um and if i had to choose one

0:07:40.160,0:07:47.919
uh i’d say would probably be

0:07:44.319,0:07:51.199
either um a cheeseburger

0:07:47.919,0:07:53.520
or spaghetti okay that’s a good answer

0:07:51.199,0:07:55.120
yeah so this category which i didn’t

0:07:53.520,0:07:58.720
neglected to mention in the beginning

0:07:55.120,0:08:01.199
is likes and dislikes just obviously the

0:07:58.720,0:08:03.280
sort of theme together here so we know

0:08:01.199,0:08:07.440
what your absolute favorite food is

0:08:03.280,0:08:10.000
what is the one food you’ll never eat

0:08:07.440,0:08:12.639
i think that would be pudding pudding

0:08:10.000,0:08:15.120
yeah and that’s a casualty of braces

0:08:12.639,0:08:17.199
yep um honestly i didn’t like putting to

0:08:15.120,0:08:19.680
begin with and braces just

0:08:17.199,0:08:20.720
caused me to dislike it even more to the

0:08:19.680,0:08:22.720
point where

0:08:20.720,0:08:23.919
people just eating it would make me

0:08:22.720,0:08:25.840
queasy

0:08:23.919,0:08:27.440
that’s not good so definitely not going

0:08:25.840,0:08:30.639
to be eating that anytime soon

0:08:27.440,0:08:32.240
nope uh

0:08:30.639,0:08:34.320
well before i answer this next question

0:08:32.240,0:08:38.159
let me ask a

0:08:34.320,0:08:38.159
qualifying question do you like to read

0:08:38.839,0:08:47.200
somewhat i mean i normally

0:08:43.919,0:08:49.440
don’t read like novels i mean

0:08:47.200,0:08:51.519
there are novels that i would probably

0:08:49.440,0:08:54.560
like but would i ever really

0:08:51.519,0:08:57.279
try to find them no i

0:08:54.560,0:08:58.720
normally read the books that and the

0:08:57.279,0:09:00.320
only novels that i really read

0:08:58.720,0:09:01.760
are books that i’m kind of forced to

0:09:00.320,0:09:04.240
read by school

0:09:01.760,0:09:06.240
um but the books i normally would read

0:09:04.240,0:09:07.120
and enjoy to read that i’m not forced to

0:09:06.240,0:09:11.040
read are

0:09:07.120,0:09:13.839
comic books and graphic novels you know

0:09:11.040,0:09:15.040
i don’t actually like read novels like

0:09:13.839,0:09:18.240
i’m supposed to

0:09:15.040,0:09:21.760
okay so is there a favorite book

0:09:18.240,0:09:23.440
uh not really i mean i do like a lot of

0:09:21.760,0:09:26.720
the novels that

0:09:23.440,0:09:30.160
um i’ve actually chosen to read

0:09:26.720,0:09:33.519
um but i haven’t read them

0:09:30.160,0:09:35.839
in a while um but there is one book

0:09:33.519,0:09:37.680
that i do like and it was actually a

0:09:35.839,0:09:40.560
minecraft novel

0:09:37.680,0:09:41.680
um it was i think it was called the

0:09:40.560,0:09:43.440
crash

0:09:41.680,0:09:44.959
it was a really interesting book i

0:09:43.440,0:09:45.839
actually had two different minecraft

0:09:44.959,0:09:47.600
novels

0:09:45.839,0:09:49.600
one was the island the other one was the

0:09:47.600,0:09:51.120
crash the crash was the more recent one

0:09:49.600,0:09:56.080
the island i actually read

0:09:51.120,0:09:56.080
um a couple years ago in um

0:09:56.320,0:10:00.720
in summer camp and it was a good book i

0:09:59.360,0:10:03.440
liked it

0:10:00.720,0:10:04.000
and i definitely think the crash was um

0:10:03.440,0:10:06.640
a really good

0:10:04.000,0:10:07.680
book i’d gotten it a while ago but i’d

0:10:06.640,0:10:10.480
actually

0:10:07.680,0:10:12.720
read it like last month that was the

0:10:10.480,0:10:14.880
first time i actually fully sat down and

0:10:12.720,0:10:16.839
read it and i really enjoyed it okay

0:10:14.880,0:10:19.600
good answer

0:10:16.839,0:10:23.120
so this next one’s kind of a

0:10:19.600,0:10:25.040
funny one here because we know

0:10:23.120,0:10:27.360
we know you’re not a big sports fan

0:10:25.040,0:10:30.240
however if there is a sport

0:10:27.360,0:10:32.320
out there that you would want to play

0:10:30.240,0:10:35.519
what would that sport be

0:10:32.320,0:10:38.959
um either volleyball or hockey okay

0:10:35.519,0:10:42.480
i’ve always enjoyed um hockey

0:10:38.959,0:10:43.680
for some reason because um unlike soccer

0:10:42.480,0:10:46.720
where it’s a much

0:10:43.680,0:10:48.160
huger it’s a really huge ball and i’ve

0:10:46.720,0:10:50.399
gotten a lot of

0:10:48.160,0:10:51.200
uh moments where it was kicked in my

0:10:50.399,0:10:53.200
face

0:10:51.200,0:10:55.120
yeah that would turn people off yeah

0:10:53.200,0:10:56.079
yeah that completely turned me off from

0:10:55.120,0:10:58.079
soccer

0:10:56.079,0:10:59.760
most the sports get turned off because i

0:10:58.079,0:11:03.360
get hit with whatever

0:10:59.760,0:11:04.000
we are using um but with hockey for some

0:11:03.360,0:11:06.800
reason

0:11:04.000,0:11:08.800
i enjoyed it because i felt like i was

0:11:06.800,0:11:11.120
actually good at hockey

0:11:08.800,0:11:12.720
and although you know you got the sticks

0:11:11.120,0:11:14.399
and you whack people in the knees

0:11:12.720,0:11:16.000
that sometimes hurts but for some reason

0:11:14.399,0:11:16.399
that’s actually against the rules by the

0:11:16.000,0:11:19.600
way

0:11:16.399,0:11:22.560
yeah but like in elementary school

0:11:19.600,0:11:24.079
uh a lot of kids go for the puck that’s

0:11:22.560,0:11:26.959
all you need to know

0:11:24.079,0:11:28.399
um but you know i actually did enjoy it

0:11:26.959,0:11:29.600
and it wasn’t one of the sports that got

0:11:28.399,0:11:32.720
me turned off

0:11:29.600,0:11:34.720
um volleyball i’m not necessarily good

0:11:32.720,0:11:35.040
at it but i enjoyed it when i was doing

0:11:34.720,0:11:38.240
it

0:11:35.040,0:11:38.880
in seventh grade and one of my most fond

0:11:38.240,0:11:42.480
moments

0:11:38.880,0:11:44.560
um ever doing pe was when um

0:11:42.480,0:11:45.839
it was almost we were almost about to

0:11:44.560,0:11:49.600
switch classes and go

0:11:45.839,0:11:50.560
change um but i ended up hitting the

0:11:49.600,0:11:53.040
volleyball

0:11:50.560,0:11:54.800
and it was on the net and it was like oh

0:11:53.040,0:11:55.440
no is it going to go on our side or

0:11:54.800,0:11:57.279
their side

0:11:55.440,0:11:59.600
and then immediately went to their side

0:11:57.279,0:12:01.760
like it just like the net was here the

0:11:59.600,0:12:04.079
ball was here and it just like slid

0:12:01.760,0:12:06.079
down and um we had actually had an

0:12:04.079,0:12:10.240
eighth um we were playing against

0:12:06.079,0:12:11.760
um another we well our teams were

0:12:10.240,0:12:14.079
a mix of seventh graders and eighth

0:12:11.760,0:12:15.839
graders and one of the more competitive

0:12:14.079,0:12:18.000
eighth graders was trying to get it and

0:12:15.839,0:12:19.760
didn’t so i had scored a point

0:12:18.000,0:12:21.440
um just before the game ended that was

0:12:19.760,0:12:24.880
my most glorious moment

0:12:21.440,0:12:26.160
very nice so you listen to music a lot

0:12:24.880,0:12:28.079
lately i’ve noticed

0:12:26.160,0:12:29.680
when we’re in the car when you’re even

0:12:28.079,0:12:32.880
at home in your room

0:12:29.680,0:12:36.320
what’s your favorite song band or

0:12:32.880,0:12:39.680
type of music that’s the thing i

0:12:36.320,0:12:42.720
don’t really listen to a specific um

0:12:39.680,0:12:44.399
artist or band and i don’t listen to a

0:12:42.720,0:12:47.040
specific type of music

0:12:44.399,0:12:47.680
i just listen to music that i think

0:12:47.040,0:12:50.560
sounds

0:12:47.680,0:12:52.240
cool i’m not very picky on what type of

0:12:50.560,0:12:55.200
music i’m listening to

0:12:52.240,0:12:56.320
what type of music someone else made

0:12:55.200,0:12:59.839
it’s just

0:12:56.320,0:13:01.519
i listen to music i think sounds cool

0:12:59.839,0:13:04.839
what was the last music that you

0:13:01.519,0:13:06.639
listened to on your own

0:13:04.839,0:13:10.240
um

0:13:06.639,0:13:13.440
it was um a short segment of a song

0:13:10.240,0:13:15.360
but like i was picturing a scene

0:13:13.440,0:13:16.560
i don’t remember what the title was but

0:13:15.360,0:13:18.800
it was sort of like

0:13:16.560,0:13:20.160
something like i’ll never forget you it

0:13:18.800,0:13:22.480
was sort of one of those

0:13:20.160,0:13:23.600
um songs but it was also in more of a

0:13:22.480,0:13:26.639
pop kind of

0:13:23.600,0:13:27.920
thing i like i don’t

0:13:26.639,0:13:30.079
half the time i don’t even know what

0:13:27.920,0:13:32.160
title the song i’m listening to i just

0:13:30.079,0:13:33.519
listen to the song yeah yeah i got the

0:13:32.160,0:13:35.680
same problem i just there’s certain

0:13:33.519,0:13:37.360
types of music i like but

0:13:35.680,0:13:38.800
i never bothered to learn the artist or

0:13:37.360,0:13:40.160
the title of the song or something like

0:13:38.800,0:13:40.720
that it just comes on the radio when i

0:13:40.160,0:13:43.600
like it

0:13:40.720,0:13:45.519
except hotel california well yes except

0:13:43.600,0:13:48.000
the eagles and hotel california and

0:13:45.519,0:13:49.920
anything eagles

0:13:48.000,0:13:51.120
so the next question that we have is

0:13:49.920,0:13:53.920
what is your biggest

0:13:51.120,0:13:53.920
pet peeve

0:13:55.519,0:14:00.839
thing that annoys me the most yes that’s

0:13:58.000,0:14:03.839
a long list of things i know pick the

0:14:00.839,0:14:03.839
top

0:14:04.720,0:14:11.040
i guess i’d just say when

0:14:07.839,0:14:14.320
people my age

0:14:11.040,0:14:14.720
don’t know how to stay silent that’s one

0:14:14.320,0:14:16.399
of my

0:14:14.720,0:14:18.800
the most annoying things that i could

0:14:16.399,0:14:23.199
think of the sound of silence

0:14:18.800,0:14:26.560
honestly like like i

0:14:23.199,0:14:29.199
i almost believe that most people my age

0:14:26.560,0:14:30.399
can’t stay styling for five minutes like

0:14:29.199,0:14:32.000
i could uh

0:14:30.399,0:14:34.240
i could definitely do it and i know

0:14:32.000,0:14:34.560
other kids could but it seems like a lot

0:14:34.240,0:14:37.680
of

0:14:34.560,0:14:39.120
people my age can’t be silent

0:14:37.680,0:14:42.079
and i don’t know if they’re like that

0:14:39.120,0:14:45.040
everywhere else or just in my school but

0:14:42.079,0:14:46.079
it would always bother me and it was one

0:14:45.040,0:14:48.000
of the biggest

0:14:46.079,0:14:49.360
things that would annoy me that’s

0:14:48.000,0:14:50.720
interesting and i think we’ll wind up

0:14:49.360,0:14:53.040
coming back to that one

0:14:50.720,0:14:54.639
okay so the next question is a

0:14:53.040,0:14:56.959
theoretical question

0:14:54.639,0:14:57.680
okay if you were to have an ice cream

0:14:56.959,0:15:00.320
sundae

0:14:57.680,0:15:01.360
with any toppings you want it what would

0:15:00.320,0:15:04.800
you choose

0:15:01.360,0:15:08.079
okay i have a lot so

0:15:04.800,0:15:12.800
i would mainly have peanut butter cups

0:15:08.079,0:15:14.480
reese’s pieces peanut butter sauce

0:15:12.800,0:15:17.120
and anything else that was peanut butter

0:15:14.480,0:15:18.639
related yeah when we asked you what your

0:15:17.120,0:15:19.839
absolute favorite food was you never

0:15:18.639,0:15:23.279
mentioned peanut butter

0:15:19.839,0:15:26.320
no it’s more of a ice like

0:15:23.279,0:15:28.480
ice cream like

0:15:26.320,0:15:30.320
okay think of it this way like you like

0:15:28.480,0:15:31.519
bacon and you say everything is better

0:15:30.320,0:15:33.839
with bacon

0:15:31.519,0:15:34.959
except you got a stick except you had a

0:15:33.839,0:15:38.320
stick yes

0:15:34.959,0:15:41.040
so it was sort of

0:15:38.320,0:15:42.399
the i so take that idea like you’d put

0:15:41.040,0:15:45.440
bacon on anything

0:15:42.399,0:15:47.680
for me peanut butter was kind of like

0:15:45.440,0:15:49.199
i wouldn’t exactly put it on everything

0:15:47.680,0:15:49.600
but ice cream was one of the main things

0:15:49.199,0:15:51.440
that

0:15:49.600,0:15:53.040
um made peanut butter that made my

0:15:51.440,0:15:53.600
peanut butter addiction really come

0:15:53.040,0:15:55.440
alive

0:15:53.600,0:15:58.000
i could see that as it’s very good with

0:15:55.440,0:16:01.120
being with uh ice cream yep

0:15:58.000,0:16:02.399
ah let’s see next question we have is

0:16:01.120,0:16:05.519
what is your least

0:16:02.399,0:16:08.240
favorite chore uh

0:16:05.519,0:16:09.759
taking the trash out from the bathroom

0:16:08.240,0:16:12.880
that

0:16:09.759,0:16:15.839
no no i don’t like that that like

0:16:12.880,0:16:17.440
your trash is normally just food and i

0:16:15.839,0:16:21.040
can deal with that but

0:16:17.440,0:16:22.560
the bathroom is more i mean that’s what

0:16:21.040,0:16:25.519
is that nobody goes

0:16:22.560,0:16:26.560
in the trash can in the bathroom but

0:16:25.519,0:16:29.279
it’s like

0:16:26.560,0:16:29.759
i mean it’s where you clean yourself and

0:16:29.279,0:16:36.560
you

0:16:29.759,0:16:40.079
have no i clean myself in the shower

0:16:36.560,0:16:42.399
look look for me and mommy

0:16:40.079,0:16:43.360
that’s where like that’s where our main

0:16:42.399,0:16:45.839
hygiene thing

0:16:43.360,0:16:46.880
is i totally get it i don’t want to get

0:16:45.839,0:16:49.600
into what’s in

0:16:46.880,0:16:50.160
the trash can you need not say anymore i

0:16:49.600,0:16:53.279
get it

0:16:50.160,0:16:55.360
yes so let’s talk seasons we’re right in

0:16:53.279,0:16:58.800
the middle of a season change from

0:16:55.360,0:17:04.160
from summer to fall here what is your uh

0:16:58.800,0:17:06.559
least favorite season summer definitely

0:17:04.160,0:17:08.000
now let me give you the reasons one of

0:17:06.559,0:17:11.199
the main things is that

0:17:08.000,0:17:12.480
i don’t like the heat i prefer a nice

0:17:11.199,0:17:15.600
cold breeze

0:17:12.480,0:17:17.039
and this the sun just seems to really

0:17:15.600,0:17:19.520
not like me

0:17:17.039,0:17:20.400
um i’m with you there there’s also the

0:17:19.520,0:17:22.640
insects

0:17:20.400,0:17:24.240
i hate them i don’t i mean i understand

0:17:22.640,0:17:27.039
that a lot of them are trying to help

0:17:24.240,0:17:30.480
our ecosystem and all that stuff

0:17:27.039,0:17:31.760
but i don’t like it and like i freak out

0:17:30.480,0:17:34.640
whenever i feel

0:17:31.760,0:17:36.799
something like like a hair move on my

0:17:34.640,0:17:38.799
skin it feels like there’s a bug near me

0:17:36.799,0:17:40.080
the creepy crawlies yeah i don’t like

0:17:38.799,0:17:43.120
that

0:17:40.080,0:17:44.640
um and just

0:17:43.120,0:17:46.400
those were the main things that i didn’t

0:17:44.640,0:17:47.600
like about summer i could probably think

0:17:46.400,0:17:49.280
of other reasons

0:17:47.600,0:17:52.320
um but not off the top of my head right

0:17:49.280,0:17:54.080
now i think that’s sufficient thank you

0:17:52.320,0:17:55.840
so the next group of questions at the

0:17:54.080,0:17:58.559
small group and it’s about family and

0:17:55.840,0:18:02.480
friends we just have a few with this one

0:17:58.559,0:18:03.919
so describe your parents in three words

0:18:02.480,0:18:07.440
or less

0:18:03.919,0:18:09.600
okay i’ll start with you of course you

0:18:07.440,0:18:09.600
will

0:18:09.679,0:18:16.640
just to be safe okay

0:18:13.039,0:18:20.880
i lost my cameras oh there we go

0:18:16.640,0:18:23.200

0:18:20.880,0:18:24.080
technical difficulties here sorry about

0:18:23.200,0:18:25.520
this people

0:18:35.440,0:18:42.000
there we go okay okay um

0:18:38.480,0:18:45.280
so after that um

0:18:42.000,0:18:49.440
to describe you in three words

0:18:45.280,0:18:52.590

wow i didn’t think you’d be this hard

0:19:04.320,0:19:09.440
i’m trying to think of what

0:19:06.000,0:19:11.840
ways to put this uh funny

0:19:09.440,0:19:12.480
okay sometimes i mean you do crack good

0:19:12.480,0:19:16.640
just just i also crack bad jokes too

0:19:15.919,0:19:20.080
apparently

0:19:16.640,0:19:22.160
yeah um and one last word

0:19:20.080,0:19:23.200
uh helpful i’d say you’re helpful as

well so i’m

0:19:23.200,0:19:27.679
smart funny and helpful okay i’ll buy

0:19:26.400,0:19:31.200
that how about mommy

0:19:27.679,0:19:33.840
um okay

0:19:31.200,0:19:35.280
i’ll go with hard working that’s still

0:19:33.840,0:19:38.080
one word right

0:19:35.280,0:19:40.880
sure we’ll we’ll put it together okay so

0:19:38.080,0:19:40.880
hard working

0:19:43.679,0:19:49.280
i’d say tolerant because she has to deal

0:19:47.679,0:19:51.280
with a lot of our stuff

0:19:49.280,0:19:53.440
yeah she does put up with us doesn’t she

0:19:51.280,0:19:58.480
yep so i’d say she’s tolerant

0:19:53.440,0:19:58.480
um and one more

0:20:02.720,0:20:06.480
outgoing uh yes that would definitely

0:20:05.360,0:20:10.400
describe mommy

0:20:06.480,0:20:13.600
yep so mommy is hard-working

0:20:10.400,0:20:16.240
tolerant and outgoing and i am smart

0:20:13.600,0:20:18.320
funny and helpful well it’s good to know

0:20:16.240,0:20:22.720
we all have some practical skills

0:20:18.320,0:20:24.720
yep so the next question is

0:20:22.720,0:20:26.880
would you choose a different name for

0:20:24.720,0:20:30.559
yourself if you could

0:20:26.880,0:20:33.440
um not really i’m pretty

0:20:30.559,0:20:34.000
okay with my name right now um there are

0:20:33.440,0:20:36.000
really nice

0:20:34.000,0:20:38.320
names out there but i think i’ll stick

0:20:36.000,0:20:41.600
with my name okay

0:20:38.320,0:20:43.360
and what makes a good friend to you um

0:20:41.600,0:20:44.960
someone who makes a good friend is

0:20:43.360,0:20:48.159
someone who is

0:20:44.960,0:20:49.280
willing to listen to you whenever you

0:20:48.159,0:20:51.200
need them

0:20:49.280,0:20:52.320
someone who is willing to tell you when

0:20:51.200,0:20:55.440
they need you

0:20:52.320,0:20:58.559
because honesty is very i think honesty

0:20:55.440,0:21:01.440
is very important for friendship

0:20:58.559,0:21:02.080
i also want some i also think a good

0:21:01.440,0:21:05.360
friend

0:21:02.080,0:21:07.120
would also be caring

0:21:05.360,0:21:08.480
wanting to help you whenever you needed

0:21:07.120,0:21:11.440
it and

0:21:08.480,0:21:12.640
not just willing to listen but also help

0:21:11.440,0:21:14.960
you out with something

0:21:12.640,0:21:16.320

0:23:08.240,0:23:13.360

0:23:13.360,0:23:15.360
duplicate i already asked this about

your

0:24:38.240,0:24:42.320
to know

0:24:38.960,0:24:45.840
maddie again we have a series of

0:24:42.320,0:24:47.440
questions about goals and aspirations

0:24:45.840,0:24:50.240
we’re going to ask you now

0:24:47.440,0:24:51.440
alrighty so what are some of your short

0:24:50.240,0:24:54.480
term goals

0:24:51.440,0:24:55.600
next 12 to 18 months um

0:24:54.480,0:24:58.720
[Music]

0:24:55.600,0:25:02.000
well um for one thing

0:24:58.720,0:25:05.760
i want to make sure

0:25:02.000,0:25:07.840
that you guys are comfortable with all

0:25:05.760,0:25:10.880
the situations and that we

0:25:07.840,0:25:13.279
all can adjust to the new

0:25:10.880,0:25:14.320
um the new situations that we’re going

0:25:13.279,0:25:17.440
to experience

0:25:14.320,0:25:17.840
in the next few months i’m also hoping

0:25:17.440,0:25:21.039
to

0:25:17.840,0:25:24.240
finish school with some good marks

0:25:21.039,0:25:26.880
this year and hope and

0:25:24.240,0:25:27.600
get through a full year of remote

0:25:26.880,0:25:30.799
learning

0:25:27.600,0:25:33.440
so that’d be nice um

0:25:30.799,0:25:34.480
and i think that’s it that i can think

0:25:33.440,0:25:38.720
of right now

0:25:34.480,0:25:41.520
okay i think they’re very good goals

0:25:38.720,0:25:43.200
so if you could have any career what

0:25:41.520,0:25:47.039
would it be

0:25:43.200,0:25:48.480
um so i wanted more centered around more

0:25:47.039,0:25:51.600
of my interests

0:25:48.480,0:25:55.440
like art science and um

0:25:51.600,0:25:58.400
a little bit of math as well so i’d say

0:25:55.440,0:25:58.880
i mean i’ve gotten a lot of options like

0:25:58.400,0:26:02.240
i’d

0:25:58.880,0:26:03.360
like to be um maybe an architect at some

0:26:02.240,0:26:05.039
point

0:26:03.360,0:26:06.799
um i also want to be involved with a

0:26:05.039,0:26:09.760
little bit of technology

0:26:06.799,0:26:12.240
and i think like writing and doing art

0:26:09.760,0:26:15.679
could be something i do in my spare time

0:26:12.240,0:26:18.320
so what would your ultimate dream job be

0:26:15.679,0:26:21.679
um if you could pick it today anything

0:26:18.320,0:26:21.679
you wanted to do what would you do

0:26:22.320,0:26:25.600
i don’t know what else i don’t know what

0:26:24.640,0:26:29.520
major things

0:26:25.600,0:26:32.640
can um include art technology

0:26:29.520,0:26:35.200
science and math all in one so

0:26:32.640,0:26:36.640
i think architect maybe even like a

0:26:35.200,0:26:40.400
fashion designer because

0:26:36.640,0:26:41.200
i’ve gotten um because i’ve gotten used

0:26:40.400,0:26:43.840
to

0:26:41.200,0:26:44.799
i’ve gotten into drawing outfits for my

0:26:43.840,0:26:46.880
characters

0:26:44.799,0:26:48.960
um and choosing outfits for my

0:26:46.880,0:26:52.799
characters so i might even do that

0:26:48.960,0:26:56.400
at some point okay a lot of things open

0:26:52.799,0:26:58.240
okay good answers so you’re a very

0:26:56.400,0:27:01.679
talented individual already

0:26:58.240,0:27:04.480
um from an artwork standpoint for sure

0:27:01.679,0:27:06.960
but from an academic standpoint as well

0:27:04.480,0:27:08.960
but what skill is there out there that

0:27:06.960,0:27:10.720
you’d like to master that you don’t have

0:27:08.960,0:27:12.799
that skill at the moment

0:27:10.720,0:27:14.799
theater theater what do you mean by

0:27:12.799,0:27:17.840
theater theater like

0:27:14.799,0:27:21.279
being able to um

0:27:17.840,0:27:24.080
perform a play or do a show or even

0:27:21.279,0:27:26.640
a bit of movie directing like um well

0:27:24.080,0:27:29.360
the movie directing i totally get

0:27:26.640,0:27:30.559
so that i get but the theater stuff do

0:27:29.360,0:27:34.399
you want to perform

0:27:30.559,0:27:36.559
on stage or do you want to be

0:27:34.399,0:27:38.480
do you want to write plays direct plays

0:27:36.559,0:27:41.440
produce plays or do you want to be

0:27:38.480,0:27:41.919
in the play i mean a little bit of both

0:27:41.440,0:27:45.360
um

0:27:41.919,0:27:47.360
i was thinking when um seventh grade

0:27:45.360,0:27:50.480
started and i heard about drama club

0:27:47.360,0:27:51.760
i kinda wanted to join it but i never

0:27:50.480,0:27:53.360
really thought

0:27:51.760,0:27:55.279
but the fact that i kind of have a

0:27:53.360,0:27:57.440
little bit of stage fight is

0:27:55.279,0:27:58.799
a little bit concerning for the theater

0:27:57.440,0:28:02.640
business but

0:27:58.799,0:28:04.960
it would be nice to um try and

0:28:02.640,0:28:06.960
perform in front of people to get over

0:28:04.960,0:28:10.159
my stage fright

0:28:06.960,0:28:11.039
just speaking to your stage fright as of

0:28:10.159,0:28:16.320
today

0:28:11.039,0:28:20.399
this podcast has 9233 views

0:28:16.320,0:28:23.600
just saying also i want to tell you

0:28:20.399,0:28:25.200
that i don’t actually see all the people

0:28:23.600,0:28:27.039
in front of me i’m not talking in front

0:28:25.200,0:28:29.279
of a lot of people i’m just

0:28:27.039,0:28:30.559
in our studio in our house talking

0:28:29.279,0:28:33.600
towards you

0:28:30.559,0:28:36.559
this does not this like i mean

0:28:33.600,0:28:37.039
on stage with hundreds or thousands of

0:28:36.559,0:28:39.919
people

0:28:37.039,0:28:41.360
staring directly at you okay all a

0:28:39.919,0:28:43.360
matter of perception

0:28:41.360,0:28:45.039
if you don’t perceive the audience out

0:28:43.360,0:28:46.640
there then the audience isn’t there and

0:28:45.039,0:28:48.000
it’s just you and whoever’s on stage

0:28:46.640,0:28:50.240
with you

0:28:48.000,0:28:51.919
so but that’s cool i think you should go

0:28:50.240,0:28:54.480
for that i think you’d get a kick out of

0:28:51.919,0:28:56.840
nothing else the new experience will be

0:28:54.480,0:29:00.559
a good learning experience for you

0:28:56.840,0:29:04.240
yep where would you love to live if you

0:29:00.559,0:29:04.240
had a choice of anywhere in the world

0:29:08.320,0:29:16.080
maybe i’d go to um

0:29:12.640,0:29:19.360
maybe i’d like travel overseas to

0:29:16.080,0:29:24.159
possibly europe or asia i’m

0:29:19.360,0:29:24.159
good by the way both good bands

0:29:24.960,0:29:30.640
so i might um travel overseas

0:29:28.240,0:29:31.600
to live somewhere in there it would be

0:29:30.640,0:29:34.880
kind of cool

0:29:31.600,0:29:38.559
to live in um london

0:29:34.880,0:29:42.159
um or paris yeah um

0:29:38.559,0:29:44.640
i just would kind of like to

0:29:42.159,0:29:46.559
maybe travel overseas not like

0:29:44.640,0:29:48.720
necessarily live there forever

0:29:46.559,0:29:50.799
i’m kind of okay with the situation i’m

0:29:48.720,0:29:52.240
living in now although it would be nice

0:29:50.799,0:29:54.880
to uh

0:29:52.240,0:29:56.799
go somewhere else right now yeah it’d be

0:29:54.880,0:30:01.039
nice to go anywhere else right now

0:29:56.799,0:30:01.039
yeah these are very strange time

0:30:01.279,0:30:06.640
um where do you see yourself in 10 years

0:30:04.559,0:30:10.240
so 10 years you’ll be

0:30:06.640,0:30:11.919
23 24 you’ll probably have graduated

0:30:10.240,0:30:14.480
college where do you see yourself

0:30:11.919,0:30:15.919
after graduating college well i’d see

0:30:14.480,0:30:19.679
myself

0:30:15.919,0:30:22.880
either um staying with you guys or

0:30:19.679,0:30:24.960
visiting you guys um i don’t know what

0:30:22.880,0:30:25.200
kind of house i’d live in if i’d live in

0:30:24.960,0:30:28.640
an

0:30:25.200,0:30:32.159
apartment if i’d live in a small house

0:30:28.640,0:30:34.559
um but definitely i’d probably be having

0:30:32.159,0:30:37.600
a couple cats around the house as well

0:30:34.559,0:30:40.640
crazy cat lady yeah um

0:30:37.600,0:30:42.480
i don’t think i would have been um i

0:30:40.640,0:30:44.240
don’t know exactly what kind of job i

0:30:42.480,0:30:45.600
would have but i’d want to have at least

0:30:44.240,0:30:47.760
some job by the time

0:30:45.600,0:30:48.799
i’m 20. well especially if you’re living

0:30:47.760,0:30:52.480
in an apartment because

0:30:48.799,0:30:55.760
got to pay for that somehow yeah um okay

0:30:52.480,0:30:57.279
so yeah good answer good answer is there

0:30:55.760,0:30:59.519
anything that you

0:30:57.279,0:31:05.840
want to be able to do that you can’t do

0:30:59.519,0:31:05.840
right now

0:31:16.840,0:31:19.840
probably

0:31:18.320,0:31:21.039
you know i gave you these questions in

0:31:19.840,0:31:22.000
advance you could have written the

0:31:21.039,0:31:25.760
answers down

0:31:22.000,0:31:29.120
i’m sorry i just don’t really know

0:31:25.760,0:31:30.880
like right now i’m okay with things but

0:31:29.120,0:31:32.399
see like the first thing most people

0:31:30.880,0:31:34.880
your age would say to a question like

0:31:32.399,0:31:36.480
that is i want to drive

0:31:34.880,0:31:38.960
is that even something that interests

0:31:36.480,0:31:40.960
you i mean i’d want to drive i

0:31:38.960,0:31:43.679
want to get my license so that i didn’t

0:31:40.960,0:31:46.320
have to always travel by bus or bike or

0:31:43.679,0:31:48.080
any other means of travel so i

0:31:46.320,0:31:51.679
definitely probably go for

0:31:48.080,0:31:55.600
um wanting to drive anything else that

0:31:51.679,0:32:01.840
um for my age that i can’t do right now

0:31:55.600,0:32:01.840
would probably consist of

0:32:03.039,0:32:06.399
i wouldn’t visit a bar that’s just one

0:32:05.039,0:32:07.679
of the things i want to get out right

0:32:06.399,0:32:08.399
there right now that’s good i wouldn’t

0:32:07.679,0:32:12.960
do that

0:32:08.399,0:32:12.960
and i don’t want to do that um

0:32:13.440,0:32:16.480
pretty sure i don’t want to get married

0:32:15.519,0:32:19.840
or anything

0:32:16.480,0:32:21.760
i’m fine with where i am right now

0:32:19.840,0:32:23.200
i’d want to at least try and have a

0:32:21.760,0:32:26.080
child um

0:32:23.200,0:32:26.840
probably just adopt a child to raise a

0:32:26.080,0:32:29.919
child

0:32:26.840,0:32:32.240
just you know do something

0:32:29.919,0:32:33.600
for a kid let’s get you changing litter

0:32:32.240,0:32:35.840
boxes first

0:32:33.600,0:32:37.760
keep the cats alive that’s a good first

0:32:35.840,0:32:39.440
step yeah

0:32:37.760,0:32:42.080
so the last question i have for our

0:32:39.440,0:32:45.039
goals and aspirations

0:32:42.080,0:32:46.480
is if you started your own business what

0:32:45.039,0:32:50.159
would your business

0:32:46.480,0:32:52.640
do um i’d say my business would be

0:32:50.159,0:32:54.399
about expressing yourself creating

0:32:52.640,0:32:56.640
whatever art you want

0:32:54.399,0:32:57.600
it you could paint you could do digital

0:32:56.640,0:33:00.799
art

0:32:57.600,0:33:02.640
you could do writing um

0:33:00.799,0:33:03.919
you could do music it would be kind of

0:33:02.640,0:33:05.440
one of those shops

0:33:03.919,0:33:07.840
it would be more of a compute a

0:33:05.440,0:33:10.960
community store where

0:33:07.840,0:33:14.640
um younger kids could um see

0:33:10.960,0:33:16.559
if they want to get into any type of art

0:33:14.640,0:33:18.720
i’d want to do something like that at

0:33:16.559,0:33:20.720
least all right i’d like that answer

0:33:18.720,0:33:24.399
that answer works

0:33:20.720,0:33:26.960
so the next group of questions we have i

0:33:24.399,0:33:28.399
it’s kind of appropriate it’s i labeled

0:33:26.960,0:33:31.600
it habits hobbies

0:33:28.399,0:33:34.480
and quirks quirks quirks little little

0:33:31.600,0:33:36.480
idiosyncrasies you might have

0:33:34.480,0:33:37.600
so the first question is are you a night

0:33:36.480,0:33:40.880
owl or an

0:33:37.600,0:33:44.320
early bird night owl i

0:33:40.880,0:33:45.679
uh i know i mean i’m kind of supposed to

0:33:44.320,0:33:49.039
be technically

0:33:45.679,0:33:51.840
both cause of my schedule but

0:33:49.039,0:33:53.039
i prefer to be a night owl i’m with you

0:33:51.840,0:33:57.279
there on the same way

0:33:53.039,0:34:01.360
i don’t like waking up early at all so

0:33:57.279,0:34:04.000
so okay do you have any unknown talents

0:34:01.360,0:34:04.960
that not many people know about i like

0:34:04.000,0:34:08.320
singing

0:34:04.960,0:34:12.159
you likes okay are you

0:34:08.320,0:34:15.359
talented at it i mean i don’t know

0:34:12.159,0:34:16.399
i mean um you guys sometimes compliment

0:34:15.359,0:34:19.760
me when i sing

0:34:16.399,0:34:20.000
i don’t sing a lot okay but but you

0:34:19.760,0:34:22.000
don’t

0:34:20.000,0:34:23.200
do choir or anything like that in school

0:34:22.000,0:34:27.040
nope would you

0:34:23.200,0:34:28.320
i mean um i don’t know and choir’s not

0:34:27.040,0:34:29.679
just so bad because you’re singing with

0:34:28.320,0:34:31.119
a group you’re not doing unless you’re a

0:34:29.679,0:34:33.839
soloist but yeah

0:34:31.119,0:34:35.679
that’s usually by choice yeah not many

0:34:33.839,0:34:36.720
people know that i like to sing i don’t

0:34:35.679,0:34:39.440
know if i actually

0:34:36.720,0:34:41.839
sound good or not um you guys have to be

0:34:39.440,0:34:43.359
the judge of that

0:34:41.839,0:34:44.879
and you know mommy and daddy don’t judge

0:34:43.359,0:34:47.040
you very harshly so

0:34:44.879,0:34:48.000
we think you sing fine yep of course the

0:34:47.040,0:34:50.720
only example we really

0:34:48.000,0:34:51.359
have is you know uh the lion sleeps

0:34:50.720,0:34:55.359
tonight

0:34:51.359,0:34:57.599
at the dinner table and rock band so yep

0:34:55.359,0:34:58.400
uh what’s our next question what

0:34:57.599,0:35:03.520
activity

0:34:58.400,0:35:06.960
in life lights you up the most um

0:35:03.520,0:35:10.480
okay i have a lot the most

0:35:06.960,0:35:13.520
the number one most not a list the most

0:35:10.480,0:35:17.040
we only have an hour to do the show okay

0:35:13.520,0:35:21.280
um i’d say now doing

0:35:17.040,0:35:24.320
um i’d say doing digital art right now

0:35:21.280,0:35:26.480
i really like and enjoy it um

0:35:24.320,0:35:28.240
and i really think it’s fun and it’s

0:35:26.480,0:35:30.000
very relaxing and i

0:35:28.240,0:35:31.359
definitely get it a majority of

0:35:30.000,0:35:33.200
satisfaction from it

0:35:31.359,0:35:34.960
excellent i think you’re very good at it

0:35:33.200,0:35:36.320
too and that’s not me being overly

0:35:34.960,0:35:37.040
generous you actually aren’t very

0:35:36.320,0:35:40.320
talented

0:35:37.040,0:35:42.720
thanks uh let’s see

0:35:40.320,0:35:44.000
what type of rides do you typically go

0:35:42.720,0:35:47.200
on an amusement

0:35:44.000,0:35:47.520
or theme park well i definitely know i

0:35:47.200,0:35:50.240
go

0:35:47.520,0:35:51.280
on more rides than your mommy would

0:35:50.240,0:35:54.240
that’s true

0:35:51.280,0:35:55.119
so i like doing dark rides dark rides

0:35:54.240,0:35:57.200
are cool

0:35:55.119,0:35:59.200
um and it’s a nice way to lay back and

0:35:57.200,0:36:02.160
just enjoy the scenery

0:35:59.200,0:36:03.359
but i also do thrill rides such as small

0:36:02.160,0:36:05.040
roller coasters

0:36:03.359,0:36:08.240
i don’t really do the really huge roller

0:36:05.040,0:36:11.119
coasters where you do like 360 loops

0:36:08.240,0:36:13.200
um i just do like the fast speed roller

0:36:11.119,0:36:16.640
coasters that your mommy really

0:36:13.200,0:36:19.359
wouldn’t do right um so i do

0:36:16.640,0:36:21.280
those kinds of thrill rides i don’t know

0:36:19.359,0:36:22.400
what other kinds of amusement park rides

0:36:21.280,0:36:25.040
there are though

0:36:22.400,0:36:26.240
okay well i think that’s a good answer

0:36:25.040,0:36:29.280
yes people my

0:36:26.240,0:36:30.320
size gravity does gravity and inertia

0:36:29.280,0:36:34.640
are not very

0:36:30.320,0:36:36.320
friendly to you on high speed rides nope

0:36:34.640,0:36:38.240
so what are some hobbies that you

0:36:36.320,0:36:40.640
recently got into you mentioned

0:36:38.240,0:36:42.000
digital art what else have you gotten

0:36:40.640,0:36:45.839
into recently

0:36:42.000,0:36:48.240
the sims the sims yes

0:36:45.839,0:36:49.280
i really enjoy the sims and it’s a good

0:36:48.240,0:36:52.880
way for me to

0:36:49.280,0:36:54.079
not only create characters but also give

0:36:52.880,0:36:56.880
them a story

0:36:54.079,0:36:57.520
have them have different relationships

0:36:56.880,0:37:00.160
um

0:36:57.520,0:37:02.560
so i really enjoyed that i also am

0:37:00.160,0:37:03.760
getting into the process of movie making

0:37:02.560,0:37:06.400
and editing

0:37:03.760,0:37:08.160
um thinking about making a new series

0:37:06.400,0:37:08.400
that i’ve said before that i’m not going

0:37:08.160,0:37:10.960
to

0:37:08.400,0:37:12.160
put too much detail into because we

0:37:10.960,0:37:16.320
might even post it

0:37:12.160,0:37:18.320
at some point that should be interesting

0:37:16.320,0:37:20.079
so i i guess i don’t need to ask the

0:37:18.320,0:37:23.040
next question what keeps you busy on the

0:37:20.079,0:37:25.520
weekends i think we just covered that

0:37:23.040,0:37:27.119
so do you have any bad habits that you

0:37:25.520,0:37:37.119
want to reveal

0:37:27.119,0:37:39.440
ah bad habits um

0:37:37.119,0:37:41.440
i can be overly emotional at times and

0:37:39.440,0:37:42.720
whenever i feel really strongly about

0:37:41.440,0:37:46.160
something

0:37:42.720,0:37:49.119
i will let it be known okay um

0:37:46.160,0:37:50.560
like i will make sure people know where

0:37:49.119,0:37:53.440
where i stand

0:37:50.560,0:37:55.920
and how i feel on something and how

0:37:53.440,0:37:58.240
strongly i feel on it so

0:37:55.920,0:38:00.160
sometimes that can be good and but a lot

0:37:58.240,0:38:02.800
of the times it’s sometimes

0:38:00.160,0:38:04.320
bad hey you know what there’s nothing

0:38:02.800,0:38:05.440
wrong with that you’re entitled to your

0:38:04.320,0:38:06.960
opinion

0:38:05.440,0:38:09.520
and if the world doesn’t like it they

0:38:06.960,0:38:12.000
don’t have to listen yep

0:38:09.520,0:38:13.520
what is something nobody would guess

0:38:12.000,0:38:17.599
about you

0:38:13.520,0:38:19.599
oh something nobody would guess about me

0:38:17.599,0:38:21.839
yeah the fact that you like to sing is

0:38:19.599,0:38:25.359
one but give me another one

0:38:21.839,0:38:29.040
okay hmm

0:38:25.359,0:38:31.200
something no one would guess is there a

0:38:29.040,0:38:33.839
hobby that you have a skill that you

0:38:31.200,0:38:33.839
have

0:38:35.119,0:38:42.240
a secret you know interest that you have

0:38:39.119,0:38:46.160
um sometimes when i i’m home alone

0:38:42.240,0:38:47.920
i occasionally dance okay

0:38:46.160,0:38:49.280
no one would really guess that about me

0:38:47.920,0:38:49.839
and i’m pretty sure you didn’t really

0:38:49.280,0:38:53.040
know that

0:38:49.839,0:38:54.560
about me nope nope i did not

0:38:53.040,0:38:56.720
and now i put it out for the public so

0:38:54.560,0:38:57.599
now everyone’s gonna go on saying hey i

0:38:56.720,0:38:59.200
know what you

0:38:57.599,0:39:00.800
i know that you dared when you’re home

0:38:59.200,0:39:02.800
alone so hey so

0:39:00.800,0:39:04.400
despite the fact that you do a podcast

0:39:02.800,0:39:06.800
weekly

0:39:04.400,0:39:08.880
do people consider you talkative or

0:39:06.800,0:39:12.839
quiet

0:39:08.880,0:39:15.359
um i’d say that

0:39:12.839,0:39:17.839
i’m i can be like

0:39:15.359,0:39:19.200
i can be talkative when i want to be i

0:39:17.839,0:39:21.599
can monologue

0:39:19.200,0:39:23.440
if i feel like it but given the

0:39:21.599,0:39:24.320
opportunity to talk to someone i really

0:39:23.440,0:39:27.599
don’t know

0:39:24.320,0:39:30.800
i’d always pick no okay

0:39:27.599,0:39:33.599
so i’m kind of in between um

0:39:30.800,0:39:34.160
i can sometimes be talkative when i want

0:39:33.599,0:39:36.880
to be

0:39:34.160,0:39:38.560
but i don’t really do it to people i

0:39:36.880,0:39:41.680
don’t know very well

0:39:38.560,0:39:43.520
you do like the monologue too yes

0:39:41.680,0:39:45.440
so the last question that i have in this

0:39:43.520,0:39:47.440
group of questions

0:39:45.440,0:39:50.000
is if you could go on a two-week

0:39:47.440,0:39:53.280
vacation anywhere in the world

0:39:50.000,0:39:54.160
where would you go japan japan so it’s

0:39:53.280,0:39:56.880
still japan

0:39:54.160,0:39:58.000
yep it’s still japan all right two weeks

0:39:56.880,0:39:59.760
in japan

0:39:58.000,0:40:01.920
what are your top three things you want

0:39:59.760,0:40:05.359
to see i want to see

0:40:01.920,0:40:09.280
tokyo i want to see disneyland

0:40:05.359,0:40:12.640
there and um more about their

0:40:09.280,0:40:14.079
uh culture okay i think that’s a very

0:40:12.640,0:40:16.319
well-balanced

0:40:14.079,0:40:17.839
set of goals you have there so we’re

0:40:16.319,0:40:18.560
going to take a quick break we’ll come

0:40:17.839,0:40:25.839
right back

0:40:18.560,0:40:25.839
and we’ll get into personality traits

0:40:28.480,0:40:33.280
so this is where we get down to the

0:40:31.040,0:40:36.839
nitty-gritty of who you really

0:40:33.280,0:40:38.240
are so personality traits we all have

0:40:36.839,0:40:40.640
them

0:40:38.240,0:40:41.440
some of them are stranger than others

0:40:40.640,0:40:44.640
but

0:40:41.440,0:40:47.680
we’ll see what we’ve got so what are you

0:40:44.640,0:40:50.480

dorothy meows at me she’s been very

0:42:47.680,0:42:50.880
affectionate lately especially since

great the cat begging for food wonderful

0:43:17.440,0:43:21.040
uh what do you think are your greatest

0:43:19.839,0:43:25.040
strengths

0:43:21.040,0:43:28.400
um i’d say um

0:43:25.040,0:43:31.440
imagination 100 i

0:43:28.400,0:43:33.200
can be very imaginative and creative and

0:43:31.440,0:43:36.000
sometimes it can be a problem

0:43:33.200,0:43:38.160
like you can make a character and you

0:43:36.000,0:43:40.160
have no idea what their backstory is

0:43:38.160,0:43:42.400
but as soon as i stare at them i’m like

0:43:40.160,0:43:43.920
okay so here’s their family life here’s

0:43:42.400,0:43:47.520
their favorite blanks

0:43:43.920,0:43:51.520
and like i can make an entire story just

0:43:47.520,0:43:53.680
looking at a character yeah you sure can

0:43:51.520,0:43:56.000
uh what emotion would you say you

0:43:53.680,0:44:00.720
experience the most

0:43:56.000,0:44:04.000
um i experience a lot of emotions so

0:44:00.720,0:44:07.119
i just say um

0:44:04.000,0:44:10.560
i’d mainly experience like a

0:44:07.119,0:44:13.599
fine mood like i’m not entirely

0:44:10.560,0:44:15.599
angry but i’m not overly happy but

0:44:13.599,0:44:17.040
i do have a smile on my face when i’m

0:44:15.599,0:44:20.480
fine so

0:44:17.040,0:44:22.720
i definitely say that being fine and

0:44:20.480,0:44:24.560
having a small smile on my face is the

0:44:22.720,0:44:27.280
emotion i’m in most of the time

0:44:24.560,0:44:30.240
okay that’s good that’s it’s better than

0:44:27.280,0:44:33.200
a lot of people’s emotions these days

0:44:30.240,0:44:34.839
do you have a hero and why are they your

0:44:33.200,0:44:37.839
hero

0:44:34.839,0:44:39.920
um

0:44:37.839,0:44:41.440
i have a lot of people that i look up to

0:44:39.920,0:44:45.200
including you and mommy

0:44:41.440,0:44:48.000
and other people i know um and i look up

0:44:45.200,0:44:51.839
to them because they’re responsible

0:44:48.000,0:44:55.119
and they can take on challenges that

0:44:51.839,0:44:57.040
seem newly impossible to deal with so

0:44:55.119,0:44:58.240
i definitely look up to them for their

0:44:57.040,0:45:00.720
problem solving

0:44:58.240,0:45:01.839
their caring attitude and their

0:45:00.720,0:45:03.920
intelligence

0:45:01.839,0:45:04.880
and that’s a great segment into the next

0:45:03.920,0:45:07.920
question of

0:45:04.880,0:45:11.359
how do you overcome obstacles

0:45:07.920,0:45:13.280
um what i normally do is

0:45:11.359,0:45:14.640
if i have gotten worked up which

0:45:13.280,0:45:16.960
probably happens

0:45:14.640,0:45:18.079
i need to take it the time to calm

0:45:16.960,0:45:20.560
myself down

0:45:18.079,0:45:21.760
and then work the problem like we always

0:45:20.560,0:45:24.319
say

0:45:21.760,0:45:25.119
you always tell me to work the problem

0:45:24.319,0:45:27.200
and

0:45:25.119,0:45:29.440
first up to identify the problem and

0:45:27.200,0:45:31.040
then figure out a solution for it and i

0:45:29.440,0:45:32.560
normally would

0:45:31.040,0:45:35.119
come up with the solution for the

0:45:32.560,0:45:38.480
problem and everything would be okay

0:45:35.119,0:45:42.079
perfect um when you’re

0:45:38.480,0:45:45.440
feeling uh down

0:45:42.079,0:45:48.480
what makes you feel better um

0:45:45.440,0:45:52.720
hanging around with you guys or the cats

0:45:48.480,0:45:55.920
although i am um very much an introvert

0:45:52.720,0:45:56.720
um i still like to hang around with my

0:45:55.920,0:46:00.640
family and

0:45:56.720,0:46:02.800
very close friends and um

0:46:00.640,0:46:04.880
normally you’re trying to lighten my

0:46:02.800,0:46:06.880
mood by cracking a few jokes and even

0:46:04.880,0:46:09.280
poking a stick in my cage

0:46:06.880,0:46:10.640
and mommy’s always there to listen if i

0:46:09.280,0:46:13.040
ever need her

0:46:10.640,0:46:14.000
and she always gives very warm hugs as

0:46:13.040,0:46:17.440
well as you

0:46:14.000,0:46:19.920
as and so do you um and the cats

0:46:17.440,0:46:21.680
they just they just want to come they

0:46:19.920,0:46:25.200
just tolerate you

0:46:21.680,0:46:27.920
that’s all you can ask for out of cats

0:46:25.200,0:46:29.119
uh okay do you consider yourself a

0:46:27.920,0:46:32.079
leader

0:46:29.119,0:46:34.160
um i definitely want to consider myself

0:46:32.079,0:46:37.440
a leader because

0:46:34.160,0:46:39.520
um i try to work through problems that

0:46:37.440,0:46:40.000
any of my friends or anyone younger than

0:46:39.520,0:46:43.119
me

0:46:40.000,0:46:45.839
are going through and um

0:46:43.119,0:46:47.760
i want to try to find the best solution

0:46:45.839,0:46:51.040
but i also want to

0:46:47.760,0:46:52.800
look at both sides of an argument like

0:46:51.040,0:46:54.160
one person says this but the other

0:46:52.800,0:46:56.240
person says that

0:46:54.160,0:46:57.200
let’s meet in the middle so you’re a

0:46:56.240,0:47:00.640
mediator

0:46:57.200,0:47:02.960
yep nice so you had to describe

0:47:00.640,0:47:04.800
mommy and i in three words earlier i’m

0:47:02.960,0:47:08.839
gonna ask you to describe yourself

0:47:04.800,0:47:11.920
in three words okay

0:47:08.839,0:47:12.480
um creative i probably have that one

0:47:11.920,0:47:15.680
down

0:47:12.480,0:47:19.520
it’s been shown before

0:47:15.680,0:47:22.800
i’d say smart um because

0:47:19.520,0:47:26.960
it’s shown by my marks in school

0:47:22.800,0:47:29.760
and finally um

0:47:26.960,0:47:31.599
i’d say caring because i care very

0:47:29.760,0:47:34.000
deeply about people who are close to me

0:47:31.599,0:47:35.040
such as you the cats and my very close

0:47:34.000,0:47:37.920
friends and

0:47:35.040,0:47:39.839
the rest of our extended family i care

0:47:37.920,0:47:41.920
very much about everyone and i want

0:47:39.839,0:47:45.599
everyone to be happy

0:47:41.920,0:47:48.480
nice nice i like those qualities

0:47:45.599,0:47:49.599
so at the risk of getting controversial

0:47:48.480,0:47:53.280
for a minute here

0:47:49.599,0:47:55.680
let’s talk political

0:47:53.280,0:47:57.520
if you were president for a day what’s

0:47:55.680,0:48:02.079
the first thing you would either

0:47:57.520,0:48:05.520
ban or allow i’d make sure that

0:48:02.079,0:48:09.040
anyone who was um

0:48:05.520,0:48:12.160
getting hated on any type of person

0:48:09.040,0:48:16.079
who was getting um

0:48:12.160,0:48:19.359
hate on by people who were um

0:48:16.079,0:48:20.079
against whatever they were for i try to

0:48:19.359,0:48:22.800
make them

0:48:20.079,0:48:24.400
have the most equal rights that everyone

0:48:22.800,0:48:25.200
else should because i feel like our

0:48:24.400,0:48:27.440
differences

0:48:25.200,0:48:28.880
shouldn’t matter and i feel as though we

0:48:27.440,0:48:31.680
should all deserve

0:48:28.880,0:48:32.079
we all deserve rights and it shouldn’t

0:48:31.680,0:48:35.280
be

0:48:32.079,0:48:36.800
a choice it should be it should be right

0:48:35.280,0:48:40.079
for them to have them

0:48:36.800,0:48:41.440
okay very good answer and the last

0:48:40.079,0:48:44.880
question that i have

0:48:41.440,0:48:47.040
today is describe a time

0:48:44.880,0:48:50.240
when you had to make a tough decision

0:48:47.040,0:48:52.640
and are you happy with that decision

0:48:50.240,0:48:52.640
um

0:48:58.160,0:49:02.160
so two of my friends had gotten into an

0:49:01.599,0:49:05.119
argument

0:49:02.160,0:49:06.880
once and i was trying to help them

0:49:05.119,0:49:09.920
reason it out

0:49:06.880,0:49:10.960
but it didn’t seem to be working and it

0:49:09.920,0:49:14.640
was

0:49:10.960,0:49:18.000
causing me to feel a little enraged so

0:49:14.640,0:49:21.520
i ended up ending the call we had

0:49:18.000,0:49:24.480
and just trying to take a breather

0:49:21.520,0:49:25.440
and um i don’t necessarily regret it

0:49:24.480,0:49:27.599
because

0:49:25.440,0:49:28.800
one if i was completely enraged and

0:49:27.599,0:49:31.920
still tried to help them

0:49:28.800,0:49:35.200
i’d probably just lash out and um

0:49:31.920,0:49:36.160
things wouldn’t exactly um get fixed at

0:49:35.200,0:49:39.119
all

0:49:36.160,0:49:41.359
and two they probably needed to stop

0:49:39.119,0:49:43.920
talking to each other for a little bit

0:49:41.359,0:49:45.200
okay again being the diplomat the

0:49:43.920,0:49:47.839
mediator

0:49:45.200,0:49:49.280
interesting well that was all we had up

0:49:47.839,0:49:50.720
we’ll come back in a second we’ll get

0:49:49.280,0:49:59.760
your closing remarks

0:49:50.720,0:50:02.319
and uh we’ll plug a few things

0:49:59.760,0:50:03.599
so go for your closing remarks okay so

0:50:02.319,0:50:05.760
we talked about a lot of different

0:50:03.599,0:50:06.480
things so i’m not necessarily sure how

0:50:05.760,0:50:09.119
to

0:50:06.480,0:50:10.559
put closing remarks but um i’m

0:50:09.119,0:50:12.400
definitely saying that

0:50:10.559,0:50:13.920
everyone trying to stay positive through

0:50:12.400,0:50:17.599
these tough times

0:50:13.920,0:50:20.720
um i definitely wanted to do i’m sorry

0:50:17.599,0:50:21.599
there’s so many cameras thank you so i

0:50:20.720,0:50:23.520
just want to say

0:50:21.599,0:50:25.200
for everyone to stay positive through

0:50:23.520,0:50:29.119
these tough times

0:50:25.200,0:50:32.319
and um uh what was i gonna say

0:50:29.119,0:50:34.319
um i wanted we were going we were

0:50:32.319,0:50:36.319
planning on doing this podcast not just

0:50:34.319,0:50:37.839
to see the different answers i had but

0:50:36.319,0:50:39.839
in order to

0:50:37.839,0:50:41.440
put something nice out in the world we

0:50:39.839,0:50:44.079
didn’t want to go for like a really

0:50:41.440,0:50:46.079
tough and hard to podcast this week

0:50:44.079,0:50:47.280
so we’re just going with something nice

0:50:46.079,0:50:49.760
light and airy

0:50:47.280,0:50:52.000
in order to bring some peace and this

0:50:49.760,0:50:55.040
chaos that we call our world

0:50:52.000,0:50:56.800
all right very good and i just want to

0:50:55.040,0:51:00.640
chime in with my two cents here

0:50:56.800,0:51:04.079
and say that doing episodes like this

0:51:00.640,0:51:05.200
with you i enjoy these because i get to

0:51:04.079,0:51:06.640
know you more because

0:51:05.200,0:51:09.119
these aren’t questions that normally

0:51:06.640,0:51:10.800
come up during regular conversation

0:51:09.119,0:51:12.240
so as you’re hearing these little things

0:51:10.800,0:51:14.079
i get to learn a little bit more about

0:51:12.240,0:51:15.040
you and i would encourage parents out

0:51:14.079,0:51:17.119
there

0:51:15.040,0:51:19.040
to take some of these questions and and

0:51:17.119,0:51:19.599
sit down with your kids and and talk to

0:51:19.040,0:51:21.839
them and

0:51:19.599,0:51:22.960
find out what makes them tick and what

0:51:21.839,0:51:24.880
makes them

0:51:22.960,0:51:27.440
what drives them what’s their passion

0:51:24.880,0:51:30.800
what makes them smile

0:51:27.440,0:51:32.160
you’d be surprised uh how interesting

0:51:30.800,0:51:34.640
some of the answers can be

0:51:32.160,0:51:35.760
and and sometimes you might hear things

0:51:34.640,0:51:37.920
in there that

0:51:35.760,0:51:40.079
you know kind of tells you how to treat

0:51:37.920,0:51:41.440
your child a little bit differently and

0:51:40.079,0:51:42.880
what you have to do to make things a

0:51:41.440,0:51:44.400
little bit better a little bit easier

0:51:42.880,0:51:45.760
for them or maybe they need help for

0:51:44.400,0:51:47.359
something and

0:51:45.760,0:51:50.559
they don’t want to come out and ask for

0:51:47.359,0:51:52.319
it so you can kind of tease that out in

0:51:50.559,0:51:53.520
little question and answer sessions like

0:51:52.319,0:51:55.920
this you don’t have to record them and

0:51:53.520,0:51:58.319
turn them into a podcast or anything but

0:51:55.920,0:51:59.200
discussions over a meal like that kind

0:51:58.319,0:52:02.559
of uh

0:51:59.200,0:52:04.400
help to build that relationship

0:52:02.559,0:52:05.599
