1. Well, I've got at most four more years until I have to go through that terrible ordeal. ;)

2. I thought possibly that it was something about the murders in Seattle, then about Victoria.

3. Umm... yeah. I don't think Edward does anything without a reason. I didn't think it was the Lapush thing, though. Edward could have kept her away from that easily. I didn't know what was going around his head, though.

4. Well, I think my mom and I were walking to a store at the time, and it just 'came up' (don't ask me how, I don't remember). I was probably eight or nine, and the conversation passed extremely quickly.

5. No. She knows that he's just trying to protect her, even if he is a little controlling, and, also, she loves him to much to keep him out. I probably would have done the same thing.

6. that depends...

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 high school yet. I don't really see it as much of an end or a beginning, since I'll be in college for, literally, over a decade. So, I don't really have any particular feeling about graduation.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
An attack..I suspected Volturi

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

I thought maybe something was going on at the homefront that he wasn't telling her about :D Lucky guess.

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

My talk has been continuous...even though it pretty much has covered the same material since I was like 8 (I'm almost 16 now). It wasn't nearly as awkward, though, since it was my mom and I haven't had a really serious boyfriend that she could suspect I would sleep with.

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

Way too quickly. Maybe I'm just stubborn or something, but I would not have gotten over that so easily.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Depends on who needs forgiving. I have a soft spot for several who don't deserve it, but I do forgive them a lot easier and a lot more often.
"No," Jacob shook his head. "I'm exactly right for you, Bella. It would have been effortless for us - comfortable, easy as breathing. I was the natural path your life would have taken...."

hmm well I havn't graduated yet, but i bet mine will be way less dramatic, but the whole Jessica thing hugging Bella even after Jessica was being a jerk will probebly happen to me

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
Oh Jeeze, ummm I think i thought maybe Alice had seen Victoria coming back or the volturi i think

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
Definitly Yes. I knew Edward wanted to go to Florida to protect Bella because something was coming

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
Ahahaha , wow, Well i'm in the 8th grade so we have to take the whole class about it, and all of my friends were like "oh jeeze its time to learn anout how our bodies work!"

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

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

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

Highschool and stuff is not really the same in Sweden.. but for me it was kind of the same, not such a big deal.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I dont really remenber, but I had a strong feeling that it was something about Bella and it was not good. And later I didnt really belive what Edward told her..


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


To be honest no, not really. I just thought he did it beacuse he wanted to make her happy, leaving forks for a while and giving her a chance to meet her mum!

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


Haha, I never really had that talk with my dad or mum. In my family I think that we are more open about it, and if there is anything I would want to know, they probably think that I will just ask. (not that I will haha..)

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


Ehm yes.. haha I think that she did. I wouldnt have opened that window so fast!! But Edward was in a way just trying to protect her from danger..

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

I dont really know about that.. I think it depends on what the person did and how much that person means to me!

I haven't graduated yet.. I'm a sophomore.. but I'm pretty sure I will be nervous when it comes.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
something having to do w/ Jacob.. maybe her future disappearing??

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I did suspect but I wasn't sure what they were..

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
lol.. well mine was waaaaaay different.. see I have 3 older sisters so I just kind of figured it out and asked them, and I'm pretty sure they told my parents afterward b/c den my mom talked 2 me.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
No b/c he was only trying to protect her.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
in some situations yes.. but not always.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's. I would be so messed up! There would be so many emotions, I would be buried! But, I think if I had a love like Edward, I would be excited at the prospect of making that love last forever, but at the same time worried because I would worry if that was the right decision or not. Being in love with a being as perfect as Edward, I would constantly question if he would love me as long as forever.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen? I thought she had seen something with the Volturi, but I was thoroughly convinced after Edward said it was about Jasper. What can I say? I'm gullible.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were? No, I didn't. I felt really dumb later, but I just thought he was looking for an excuse to do something with Bella.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk". Well, it was a very long time ago. I couldn't have been older than ten. So, NETSPEAK IS SO UNATTRACTIVE PLEASE FIX ME!. I guess my parents decided once was enough. lol.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob? Well, if I had the oppurtunity to have Edward come into my bedroom, I would forgive him too! But with anyone else, I would have not forgiven them that quickly.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily? It depends on who I'm mad at.

OK, there is something about NETSPEAK up above, and I did not say that. I have no idea how it is even there. Just so you know. I'm not that crazy.

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

I was glad to get away from where I lived.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

something bad and it wasn't about Jasper

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

no I really didn't. I thought he was just hurt about the radio discarted and then the tickets not used.

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

ugh my dad gave it to me way too young cause some boy used the bad word on me and I didn't know what it meant. I asked and I got the meaning. I was grossed out and floored. Though he did tell me in a sweet way, that kind of talk with a dad or mom is really uncomfortable

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

I love Edward, but I do find him very controlling. I understand why, but yes she forgave him too quickly, but if I had those eyes, that face, that love staring at me, I would forgive easily too

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

Yes and no depends on the situation, but I never forget

My own high school graduation was all about freedom, to a certain extent. My boyfriend at the time (who is now my fiancee, years later) was a grade behind me, so I had mixed feelings about officially taking a major step forward, pretty much leaving him behind me. But at the same time, I be finally done with high school, all of the stupid teachers and drama drama drama, was absolutely thrilling. I was ecstatic.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
No clue. I never know what's going on in Alice's head...

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I understood why Edward wanted to get her there, and he made a pretty strong case with the tickets expiring shortly, but the fact that he was so pushy about it definitely made me a bit suspicious about the whole ordeal. I figured then that maybe Alice had seen something, but my guess was the Volturi. (That's always my guess, it seems.)

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
First, I'm lucky because I had the talk with my mother. Which makes all girls lives harder.
My Mom was hilarious about it - her relationship with her mother had been extremely different and she didn't want ours to be like that, so she was all about honesty and openness. She kept telling me to be safe, be responsible, and if I ever was considering anything that B.C. was always an option. I was in my first real relationship at 15, so I can only imagine how terrifying it was for her.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
I mean... I get it. She's in love with the guy.
But the controlling thing was definitely starting to get to me.
I think, in all honesty, I was just pissed that I was still being kept from Jake myself. :D

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
That depends on what the issue is and my relationship with you. On certain things, I'm quick to forgive, especially if you ask for my forgiveness or something along those lines. But if I'm pushed, I'm really hardheaded, and can hold a grudge for years.

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

I knew just how Bella was feeling, except for the becoming undead part. I was so nervous the last month before graduation. My friends were all going to different colleges, my boyfriend was leaving for basic where I couldnt talk to him for months. I felt alone and scared. I didnt want to start a new part of my life so alone.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I honestly did not know. It wasent untill Edward was being pushy about flordia did I have an idea that something was about to happen, either in flordia or in forks.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
had a suspicion, but i really did not know.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
Oh gosh...well I got the talk alot sooner than when Bella's Dad did. But i got all the details, and it was pretty awkward. So I can understand her pain

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

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
I dont get mad easily, so when I do its hard to forgive.

well i'm going to graduate in about 2 months and i'm scared and excited out of my mind. haha. unlike bella, i do want a party though. i'm kind of a party type person. but graduation for her also means vampire transformation time, and unfortunately i'm not that priveleged. lol

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
i thought she had seen something bad naturally but i thought it was about edward dying or something extreme like that

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
i thought his motives were because he thought him and bella were running out of time. it totall slipped my mind that she was planning on going to la push for a party.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
HA! my dad wouldn't even attempt it but if he did it wouldve been something like that. neither of my parents have actually given me "the talk". in fifth grade at the catholic elementary school i was attending we read books entitled "Family Life" and thats where i found out i was wrong about how babies were made and having babies was actually really painful. lol

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
no, it was understandable why he did it. and how could you not forgive someone that adorable? lol

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
yes i am. it's a weakness of mine.
