Time Capsule!

Make a small momento of who you are right now and in a year I'll do my best to find this thread again, top it, and you can see how much you've changed—or how much you haven't changed.

Some ideas for things to put here:

A picture/drawing/bit of writing (nothing too long)/something else that represents you. Something you're proud of. Something you're upset about. A goal you want to work towards. Something you're nervous or stressed about. Something you find interesting. Your opinion on something you think is important—or your opinion on something you do not think is important. Your favorite animal/color/song/book/word/thing about the CB. Your least favorite animal/color/song/book/word/thing about the CB. Describe yourself in 3 1/2 words. All of the above. None of the above.

Whatever it is, hopefully it describes who you are right now. It should be interesting for our future selves—one year older but definitely not one year wiser (at least in my case)—to see what we've put.

oh, this is a good idea!

hm, well, my favorite song is Strawberry Fields Forever. My favorite books are A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith and Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson. My favorite word is... either aquaduct or adequate. they're very similar and I love the way they sound!!

my least favorite song is Tutti Frutti by Pat Boone. don't listen to it. I do not reccomend. Listen to the original by Little Richard instead!!

Do you know the word absquatulate? I think you'd like it :)

*gasps in awe at the wonder of that word*

*absquatulates abruptly*

The song I'm currently listening to on repeat is Getaway Car by Taylor Swift, my favorite color is blue or purple depending on my mood, and my favorite word (off the top of my head) is opalescent. I'm nervous about a speech I have to write for school, and a goal I'm working towards this year is to write more and to write consistently. I love the CB (specifically the people and environment) and I hope that never changes <3

This is a great idea! My favorite songs at the moment are Heather by Conan Gray, Her Name by Pamelo, and despair by leo. My favorite color is teal as it has been since I was about six. I'm excited for my first rehearsal for Matilda on Friday and to meet new people at the school I started at yesterday. I'm currently reading the Moon Rising graphic novel and watching His Dark Materials also i'm learning Electric Feel and City of Stars on piano. My favorite thing about the CB is the welcoming community of amazing people <3

this is a cool idea~~

my favorite song is currently Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by Dallas String  Quartet, because it's dramatic and energetic and I love strings and there's just something about it. i like the original song too, but there's something about pure instrumentals. and my favorite book is Amelia Unabridged. it's beautifully written and it's a really cozy, comforting story, but it's not without its thorns, like all good books. my favorite words are peculiar and crepuscular, which sound similar to each other but mean quite different things. ('odd' of course, and 'of twilight'. i looked up the definition to the latter one because I Like To Be Exact, and discovered matutinal and vespertine as well -- relating to dawn and dusk, respectively -- and those're beautiful too.) I love the CB because everyone is awesome and likes books. my favorite color is midnight-blue, and my favorite animal is either an octopus or a red-winged blackbird. my favorite punctuation marks are semicolons and tildes, and I misuse both. my favorite emoticon, because I greatly prefer them over emojis for reasons I can't explain, is >:D

I'm quite proud of finishing my novel, and I want to revise it this year. I'd also like to learn how to roller skate; right now i'm that scene from Stranger Things where Mike says he feels like Bambi on ice. School is stressful, and it hasn't even started yet. I'm strange, thoughtful, arti.

currently reading Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab, but I don't like it as much as This Savage Song. questionabler morals. also I've started Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer, but as it seems like it's going to be one of those great creepy sci-fi novels, I haven't gotten further than the first couple chapters. and Amelia Unabridged on the side, for the third or fourth time...
