This is a bit delayed, but I recently reached 3k posts :D So this is an AMA and a compliment box. You can ask me questions, but I can't guarantee I'll answer if it's something I'd rather not share. Also, you can PM me with a compliment about another user, and I'll post it here anonymously on your behalf :)

I have an irresistible urge to identify what note a sound is. Like doorbells, or ringtones, or alarms, even car horns lol. I think our school bell is a G#. I used to do it just to refine my pitch identification, but now I just do it out of habit.

What inspired you to create a compliment box?

Favorite part of DDO?

How much of a bastard mod would I be if I tried to match Seventh's so-called "balanced" jester with one of own? (Crucial information: he may or may not be holding a gun. That gun may or may not fire on command. It may or may not fire at some unannounced future day phase, regardless of whether its shooter is still alive. It may or may not target someone at random.)

Honest option of me? (It's cool, I can take it, lol.)

Not bad lol. Enjoying the days off from school because snow.

I asked bsh1 what I should do for this milestone because I was out of ideas :P Plus it's a nice thing when there's been so much drama recently. I'm sad there's only been one submission.

The people :D Much better than irl sometimes.

Very bastard. I'd love to see that :P

I like you. You're funny and weird (good weird) and it's cool when you rant for pages about Econ or when you talk about crazy mafia ideas. Oh and your bunny pics. Can't forget those.

If you were given the option to slap me across the face, would you slap the left side of my face or the right side of my face?

Of course, you could choose not to hit me at all, but that's the boring choice. Also, the slap doesn't count if I'm not bleeding, crying, or have a clearly visible mark where your hand hit me on my face.

Standard:
What genre of books it your favorite?
Fantasy, some sci fi
Favorite movies/shows?
Not much of a movie or show person. Maybe Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter.
Favorite sports team(s), if any?
Not much of a sports person either :P
Favorite academic subject?
Orchestra, if that counts. If not, multi-variable calc.
Mac or PC?
I like both. Currently I'm using a PC though.
Wait Wut:
If you were being forced to release a deadly disease on a major metropolitan population, what would it be and why?
Can I say chicken pox? It's not that deadly and we have a cure for it now.
Would you rather be as small as an electron or as large as skyscraper?
Lol I guess electron. Skyscraper would be very awkward.
White America or Kim?
I don't understand.
Are you Basic?
No?
Other:
Yes or no?
Or.
Who dunnit?
I don't know =O
If you had to ask me a question, what would it be?
What's your favorite thing to wear?
If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
Oh, this is difficult. 1. World peace. 2. Have the ability to play every violin piece ever written. 3. Be rich enough that my family and friends would never need to worry about money again, and still have a lot left over to help whoever needs it.
Is there someone you look up to? Why?
My friend. She's the nicest person I've ever met, incredibly smart, and I also admire her work ethic. I'm too lazy/unmotivated sometimes even when something's important =.=
If you had to do the exact same thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Does this preclude me from doing other things? If so, then breathing because I'd like to be alive.
Scariest moment of your life?
When I was 8 and we went to China for summer vacation, I almost got run over by a motorcycle. That would've been the end of me :/
Honest opinion of meh?
You're pretty cool :D We should talk more.

What is this question lol. If I had to, then I guess right. Because then I'd be using my left hand, and my left hand is weaker.

I wish I had perfect pitch XP
I've been semi-practicing when I have the time, though I'm always stuck between "is it this key...or this key..." and I can't remember the note names for crap either, so all I know is if it's like a B or an E or something, not whether it's a sharp or flat.

What I do is remember a theme song from my favorite cartoon, and I match those notes up with the sound. I know this because I can play part of the song on my piano.

In all seriousness, congrats on 3k.

I know you've been playing violin for a while, and I just picked it up recently myself. What's your favorite piece to play and why?

Thanks! I blame mafia :D

Nice! How is it?
What's your favorite piece to play and why?
Ah, this is hard. Maybe this one?
https://www.youtube.com...
It's one of the harder pieces that I can still play decently well lol. Plus it's just a lot of fun to play, especially the last page. Also been working on this for a long time:
https://www.youtube.com...
But it's still not all that polished. Chords are hard =.=
I really want to be able to play the Tchaikovsky violin concerto and the Sibelius violin concerto someday.

"We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form...the shape of happiness might resemble glass...even though you don't usually notice it, it's still definitely there.
