1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.
:oops: I was so nervous I hated to get up in front of people.. I have tried to block out the memory since it was over 10 years ago... I had walked across the stage at our Football field and was attempting to walk off and stumbled... Everyone stood up and yelled, whooped, yeah!!!! See they all thought I had taken a nip---you know started the gradutaion celebration early.... Wrong I just am a natural clutz...So I just smilled and threw my arms up... :lol: Better to go with the flow than admit I had 2 left feet..

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I knew she was having a vision but did not know what it was about.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
After realizing that Alice had a vision and Edwards not so slight attempts to have to leave that weekend I did think something was happening.. That someone was coming or something was going to happen..

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".

My mom also is a nurse... So we had the talk all to often.. Whenever she felt the need... Did not matter who was around (my dad, friends, boyfriends) And she would go on and on and I was like enough already :roll:

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her from going to La Push to see Jacob?
I would have been furious at first. He came off as way over protective and a little stalkerish...Personally I would have been like dont you trust me... I know you are trying to protect me but come on... I would have gone upstairs and closed the window... (Of course I would have probably opened it back up in about an hour) Come on its Edward :wink: Who wouldn't.
As for anyone else depending on the person and situation yes I can be mad for a long time. Forgiveness is a tough thing.. Sometimes it is harder to forgive someone close to you because it hits harder to home than a random friend.

1. I havent graduated yet, but i guess when i do, i'll feel sad and happy like Bella, ready for a new begining, sad to see it all end.

2. I was sure it was Victoria involved.

3. I did. It's easy to guess he was protecting Bella for something, but of course i only had my speculations.

4. Well my versions of the talk have been short and snappy, all i got was 'you know what you've learnt at school, yeah?' and then 'so listen to what they say, and you'll do fine. Look after yourself and dont do drugs, drink or have it before you're able.'

5. No. Besides Edward was only looking out for her, and she was the wrong one, to run away!

6. I am if i like the person. Like if its a simple quarle with a friend i'll be desperate to make it up to them.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.

Can't say, I haven't graduated.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I didn't buy the fake story Edward gave Bella but I wasen't sure what Alice's vision was about. I just figured it was something bad.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?

I was slightly suspicious but I didn't know what other motive he would have. I was especially suspicious when Edward told Bella that she had been talking about her mother in her sleep. Seeing as how Bella was shocked by that I knew that Edward was lying. Still, I couldn't quite see any reason for Edward to want to take Bella out of town so I just forgot about it. I had completely forgotten about Alice's vision at this point and didn't make the connection.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".

I have never actually had "the talk". Very much like xoxosu's parents, I think mine have no idea I know about these kind of things. To them I am innocent girl who knows nothing about this kind of stuff..... :twisted:

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?

Nope, Edward had his reasons. Besides, who could possibly stay mad at Edward? If it was me I would probably never have shut the window in the first place.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

Most definatly. I cannot hold a grudge whatsoever. I have a really bad temper and at that moment that we are fighting I can get pretty scary. I keep telling myself "I am not going to forgive them, I am not going to forgive them." As soon as I see said person again all is forgotten. I seriously cannot help it. In fact in my head I am like "way to stay mad" but I can't help it. I like to make people happy, no matter how hard I try I just can't hold a grudge.

I live in Scotland so we don't have graduation except at university and i've still 2 years to go :(

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I wasn't sure but i knew it would have something to do with Victoria

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?

Yeah there was something about the way he pushed her into it he is too much of a gentleman to act like that unless he thought she was in danger.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".

Didnt really get a talk - its not a subject brought up in my house haha

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?

Hmmm no how could you keep him out? I couldn't stay mad at my soul mate for trying to protect me - even if he was over reacting

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

Mostly. i think i forgive too easily.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
that that umm...she saw spmething about the battle thing but i dont remember exactly what. I was thinking it was. but she see's so many things i just couldn't be sure. things keep changing!
3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
no..i just thought he wanted her to go because she worried about her mom in her sleep.
4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk". haha well the kind of talk i got wasnt anything like that. its just like you need to wait till you're married kind of thing. which is what i plan on doing. my dad doesnt talk to me about that kind of thing, thank goodness!
5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob? no i dont think so. i mean who could stand up to that wonderful edward? i couldnt have much of a fight with him!
6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
[/quote/]I might try to hold better grudges but i dont. i just forgive so easily.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.

Where I come from, graduation isn't such a big event. One or two boring speeches, and that's about it. No big parties or anything like that.
I was very nervous, though, because back then I didn't have a clue what to do after graduation (jobwise). So it was sort of jumping into the unknown.
I always liked school a lot and was sort of sad when I realized that it was all over.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I was sure that she had seen some kind of danger approaching, either the Volturi checking on Bella or Victoria making another attempt at killing her.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?

No, I just thought he didn't want to waste the plane tickets and wanted to sort of celebrate the fact that Bella wasn't grounded any more.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".

Well, I didn't really get "the talk" in one piece. My parents were always very open about the whole thing, so whenever a new question occured to me I would just ask them (preferably my mum).

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?

Yes. But that has always been her problem, hasn't it? She hardly ever protests against being patronized by Edward all of the time. I really think she should finally stand up against him. I am not saying that she should stay mad with him forever, but at least she should make him feel that she doesn't approve of his behaviour at all.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

It really depends on what has been done to me. There are some people I can forgive more easily than others... It always depends on the situation.

Okay, so I'm going to answer one question because this has always bothered me.



2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

At first I thought it had something to do with Vicotria or the Voulturi but later when edward gave his explaination, I believed him. We never really find out what her vision is about? My guess is that it had something to do with the newborns but I was wondering what everyone else thought. Do you think there was some truth behind what Edward told Bella about someone from Jasper's past returning? Do you think this will happen in Breaking Dawn (Ex: Maria, Charlotte, Peter?).

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's. I couldn't wait to get out of high school. There were a lot of aspects that I was going to miss but for the move part I was so ready to be gone. I think Bella really didn't know what to think. Yeah at graduation we all hear the "this isn't the end it's the beginning" and that is so much more serious for Bella than any of her classmates and she's realizing this. I was excited, I think she's incredibly nervous but excited at the same time.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen? I initially thought something going wrong with Bella being turned or something but then when Jake showed up I figured it had to be something with him.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were? I couldn't figure out why he wanted her to be out of Forks so badly and so suddenly but I figured maybe it was because he wanted her to see Renee before she really agreed to become a vampire, perhaps she'd say something to make her think differently?

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk". Hahaha...I didn't really have much of a talk and it didn't come from my dad. I got a "do we really need to talk?" from my mom and I said "nope" and that was that. Nothing else. I thought that scene was absolutely hilarious!!

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob? No. I think she really understands why he doesn't want her to go. Even though she doesn't like it she understands that all he's trying to do is protect her.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily? Way, way too easily. I use to be terrible and be a complete doormat and let anyone do or say whatever they wanted because I was just out to make everyone around me happy. I've changed my ways a tad bit but I still forgive way too easily.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
something to do with victoria of course.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
the trip was really random so I knew there was something going on, but I couldn't place my finger on the dot.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
Ehh. my parents never actually gave me "the talk". they just figured I would learn it all in school and from friends... which i did of course.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her going to La Push to see Jacob?
Yes but getting mad over something stupid isn't worth ruining an amazing relationship.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Yes :)
