1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.
Haven't graduate yet.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I had an idea that it had something to do with Bella, but i really had no idea.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I just thought he wanted Bella to see her mom, and he obivously wasn't going to let her go alone.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
My dad didn't even attempt to try and have "the talk" with me. I can't image him ever being able to do that.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
Yes, she should have stood up to him.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Depends on the situation

I felt the same towards my graduation that Bella did to hers; it wasn't that big of a deal to me (the ceremony itself). What it represented to me was something larger; I would be taking the next step into something much more life altering.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I wasn't certain at the time but I felt it couldn't be good and it of course had to do with Bella.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
Yes because it seemed to be something Edward would do; if there is danger try and remove Bella from the situation like he did in TW.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
My mum's a Nurse so I got the straight and narrow with clinical terms and all. I wish my mum had been as nervous as Charlie; it was quite endearing.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
No because I honestly think she knew he had only the best intentions in mind.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
I try to be but sometimes it's harder than others.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.
I haven't graduated yet. :(
2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I suspected that she saw something going on with the vampires in Seattle. I didn't believe for one second Edwards whole "Oh yeah she just saw Jasper, blah blah blah..." thing.
3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I do think that, alothough Edward denied it, he was trying to get Bella away from danger, even if just temperorily. It might have also had to do with Bella and Charlie getting invited down to La Push...
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. I just got a book with a bunch of really creepy questions in it that I hide in my closet. I felt so embarrassed for Bella though. Imagine getting the talk from Charlie...ouch.
5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
Since Bella is someone that really can't hold a grude, I think it wasn't took quick for her to forgive Edward. But, if she had been someone who hates fogiving people, then it probably would have been too early to forgive him.
6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Yup. I hate fighting with people, so I'm quick to forgive. However, I guess it would depend on the situation. I've never had any super massive fights that were life changing with anyone.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.
Well, I'm in Britain and I'm 13 so I have no idea about what it will be like for me.
2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I didn't try to guess. I could only believe what Edward told Bella later in the chapter.
3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
The meal with the Blacks on Saturday evening.
4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
Mine was when I was like 11, so it was a bit stupid and it was with my mum. lol I felt like leaving the room the second she brought it up.
5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
Well, no, it's hard to stay angry at someone like Edward. 8)
6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
It honestly depends on who it is.

Some to do with Victoria

Yes, that he didn't want Bella in town.

I've never recived 'the talk' my parents know I'm resopsabel and expecte me to be.

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

I definitely relate to the feeling of "the end" because it means you won't see so many people, and an important part of your life has ended and I relate to the fear of the unknown because graduation is a big step in life and since it seems you work for it all your life its weird to think of what to do next. Of course I didn't have to worry about whether or not I'd become a vampire and be with my Edward like Bella but it was still a strangely happy yet sad event.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

Some sort of attack I guess.

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

Not at first, but I realized he was really determined to take her there so I thought there could be but I wasn't sure.

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

I didn't really get one since they kind of teach us that at school but I did random semi-talks which resulted in reactions like Bella's and yelling about how I already know all that stuff.

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

It seemed in Bella's nature to be understanding of Edward so I thought it made sense.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

Usually I am, it depends on who they are and what they've done of course.

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

I haven't graduated from hs yet. I had 8th grade graduation, but skipped it to go to a rodeo so I honestly cant answer this one.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I figured it had something to do with Victoria or the Volturi at first, but Edward's little story had me convinced otherwise.

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

I knew something was up, but honestly had NO idea what it was.

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

My parents just said, "Don't be stupid." that was basically it. they don't have a lot to worry about with me. It wasn't anything embarrassing because they (and I) know they have nothing to worry about.

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

I think so. It would be VERY hard to stay mad at Edward though. He is a little overprotective at times. Since I really like Jacob my window would've stayed closed or I would've took Charlie and his car because Edward couldn't have done anything like that with Charlie there.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

Yes, even if I try to stay mad I can't. I don't forget though.

1.) Ha, I was nothing but excited to leave my high school.

2.) I think besides the obvious-victoria coming back-that she saw a...not good situation arising from her return?..i dunno.

3.) I totally think he had ulterior motives...or motive: to get bella out of forks and away from victoria.he was too adiment about going and after that he was too adiment that she never would have touched bella. Maybe alice saw bella getting hurt?

4.) LOL, my reaction was more of the same as bella's. Utter horror and disbelief and when it was over, wishing I could wash my brain of the memory.

5.) Um...no? That's tough. I think she understood why he was doing it. Even if she didn't agree.

That was way too long ago for me to remember!

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I thought Alice had seen something that would put Bella in danger - most likely Victoria or the Voturri.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
Edward was just a little over the top in the pushy department so I assumed he had an ulterior motive. Once he stepped all over Bella's toes and asked Charlie himself, I figured Bella was in some sort of danger and he needed to get her away from Forks.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk". When I was Bella's age my father was my only parental figure. Since he never attempted "the talk" I give Charlie kudos for at least trying.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob? Yes. Forgiveness is good, but consequences for one's actions are also good. Edward needed to experience a few more consequences than forgiveness at that point.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily? Yes, but I rarely forget, which isn't always a good combination. It often leads to lack of trust. I don't believe in the adage "to forgive is to forget."

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I thought maybe she saw Bella getting hurt in La Push or some other way and Edward freaking out again. Or maybe something about Victoria.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I thought he was trying to get her away from going to see Jacob. I thought to myself "That's a really crazy attempt, there, Edward. Tsk, tsk."

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
Oh, I remember that day clearly. My mom told me she was taking me to the mall. I was in the car, all strapped in, and going a steady 40 miles per hour, and I couldn't escape. She dumped it on me, my face bright red the whole time, then turned around and went home. We never made it to the mall. I'm still bitter today. I was eleven then....

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
Probably. But, really, she should have known better than to try to be sneaky.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Yes, I always tell myself to stay mad, to at least attempt holding a bit of a grudge (no matter how wrong that is) but always end up getting sidetracked, then tricked into forgiving. Oh, well.
