Essay Questions

What is your most memorable childhood experience?I don't have anything that stands out to me specifically, but all my best childhood memories have been with my best friend since second grade. We still keep in touch a lot and I spend my breaks from school at his house.
What immediate family member do you closely identify with and why?My grandpa, just because we are very similar people with similar personalities. Also my grandma because she is the smartest and most levelheaded person I know.
What character traits do you admire in an individual?I admire people who are outgoing, hardworking, funny and laid back.
What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?I don't really have anything that stands out to me for this question either. Funny things happen all the time every day and it's not possible for me to just pick something.
If time and money were not an issue, where would you travel and why?Italy, to see my favorite soccer team play live. I've wanted to go to Italy since I was little. Also London, because I have a lot of friends who live there and it would be nice to see them again.
When and if you ever have children, what would you like to pass on to them?The one piece of advice I have is that I, personally at least, have realized that your life can be a lot better and more fun and more people will respect you if you are able to just do what is asked of you without question. This doesn't mean letting people walk all over you, like it's still important to stand up for yourself, but there are a lot of things that just aren't worth the fight or argument.
