Congrats :)
Your name is beanD... Every time I think about that, I think "bean dip." what does it actually mean?

Bean dip?? Terrific... Haha. It's from Ender's Game/Ender's Shadow. Bean Delphiki is one of the main characters, and one of the coolest kids ever.

Do you like bean dip on your corn bread?

I was way off! Cornbread is awesome with red beans and rice (I have family in New Orleans and such, the food is amazing) :D

Cograts! and I also ask the same question on these: what's your favorite color?!?!

Green! Green and purple together, especially.

How many of our series have you read? When should Orson Scott Card have stopped writing them? Personally, Enders Shadow is the last I recommend.

Enders Game, Ender's Shadow, Speaker, and most of Xenocide. That one got a little boring towards the end. Same thing with Hegemon, which I read less of. The first 3 I mentioned are my favorite books, though.

Are you from NoCal or SoCal?

SoCal. The better half.

Although, my cousins live in NorCal, so I guess I have to give them a little bit of credit...

I like SoCal better. Haven't been out there in a few years. Hard to beat the weather and the diversity in landscape.

The weather is fantastic. I always tell people, "80 is hot and 60 is cold!" This is why I cannot go to college anywhere but CA. Ha. And it's hard to beat the beach, too! Despite the frigid water temp :)

It's a fun area. The only thing that's hard to find there is boredom.

It's from Ender's Game! Both my username and location. Bean is one of Ender's right-hand men, and Dragon Army is the squad of boys he leads for a while.

Which, btw, Ender's Game the movie is coming out on November 1, and you should go see it.

Ah, just making sure it wasn't coincidence.

Oh that's right! Well, you can watch it when you get back, haha. Good luck while you're away! Hopefully they won't work you TOO hard...

I read Enders Game to my wife (out loud) before we were married. I think it might have been one of the reasons that she actually fell for me. Weird, I know, but it was an important book to me and she understood me better after the experience.

That's so cute! I love it! I would totally fall for a guy who read me a book out loud.

PSATs: you nervous/did you do well (you can tell what I'm thinking about...)

I just took mine today. They were fairly easy.

Hey, I lasted two weeks. That has to be some kind of record.

Sunshine's back!! I never get super nervous before tests - just never have. I did pretty well, and I think the PSAT is a lot easier than the SAT. Just because it's shorter.

What are your plans after high school?

beanD California
10/19/13 5:41 pm

College. Probably at Biola University or Azusa Pacific University. But I have no idea what I want to major in or as a career!

Well, what are your interests?

Writing, history, politics, and math, mainly.

Good point Mary. Economics combines all of those rather nicely
