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

My own graduation was so "meh" for me. I was so neutral about it. I couldn't understand all the crying girls hugging each other like they'd never see each other again! My graduation was 9 years ago tho and it's pretty fuzzy..

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

I wasn't sure when I read it at first. I KNEW something was up and I knew there were other reasons for Edwards sudden need for Florida, but I guess I just assumed Victoria was involved and the vision had to do with her being in close proximity to Bella.

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

We're very sexually open in my family and my mom gave it to me when I was 13 I think. It wasn't a big deal because I grew up with stuff like that. I remember her being very comfortable too like it was no big deal. It would have been a lot worse if it was my dad giving me the talk tho, so I feel for Bella there, haha. :oops:

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

GOD yes! That part actually ticked me off! He was being WAY too unreasonable and she gave in way too easily. That was one of the few moments in the whole series of books where Edward infuriated me! Jacob is suppose to be her best friend and Edward was being way wayyyyyy too overprotective and I always hate when he treats her like some irresponsible 5 year old who isn't old enough to make her own decisions. I would have kept that window shut that night, you better believe it.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

I think I am. It's annoying! I'd get in fighting with sisters and friends a lot growing up and I'd try soooo hard to stay angry at them but I never could for very long. I don't think I forgive as easily as Bella but I do forgive pretty quickly.

I was so ready to get out and move on. Similar to what bella was feeling. I never felt like i belonged in that world.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

Victoria coming for Bella.

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

Yeah, he was pushing too hard.

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

my parents never gave me "the talk". They left a book on my bed.

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

totally! a five second window close was really pathetic.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

no.

Well...I still have 3 more years to go...but I think I'll be really nervous but excited at the same time.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
.....Not sure...

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
Yeah, I thought he just wanted Bella to see her mother and 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".
.....I don't even remember getting "the talk".....

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

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Yes, and that's a bad trait. Because sometimes the people don't deserve to be forgiven..but i just brush it off and say "whatever".
*I Love Edward Cullen!*

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
well... my dad wasn't so kind about it and i didn't have to explain to him my status on that subject but in other words he would kill me if i got too far with a guy

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
i don't think so

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

A: Mine was all mind numbingly normal.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?

A: Danger to Bella but I expected werewolf trouble. I thought Jacob would try to kidnap her and take her away to La Push.

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

A: Yes. To protect Bella

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

A: Never had the talk. I learned what I learned piece by piece through a multitude of conversations and observations of discussions on TV.

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

A: No. Their love is unconditional and though she may be mad and not agree, she understands him.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?

A: Not as easily as I'd like but I have my moments.

something along the lines of what she did see. something about victoria

Yes, I thought it was so she wouldn't go to that thing at the Blacks house

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
My parents never gave me "the talk". You find out everything from other kids in the playground

i havent graduated. YET. :/

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
i thought it must have been something bad. of course, i didnt think of what REALLY happened. i was kind of mad at bella at how she always blames herself.. or thinks that she must be silly. b/c usually shes dead on.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
i did. but i didnt think what the motives were. lo siento.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
hahahahha. this was probably one of my favorite parts in the book. my mom (and DEFINITELY dad) never gave me "the talk". she told me everything.. from a medical, doctor's pov. she delivers babies. i was WAYYY grossed out. hahaha

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
nahh. Edward can be forgiven any time. i dont care that its unequal. He's Freaking Edward Cullen. :]

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
yeah... well. the most ill stay mad at somebody is, like, a day. unless they did something REALLY bad.

1. Compare/Contrast/or Speculate on your feelings about the days before your own Graduation with that of Bella's.
I was really excited about graduation. I was so glad to be done with school. My graduation was rain, with more rain, to the point that my cap was sagging down. Didn't go out to dinner with my parents after and it was just a happy moment in my life.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
Something along the lines of Victoria coming after Bella.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
Yes, for protection, to see Renee and to keep her away from La Push.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
I always pretty much knew the idea of what sex was. So when I first got my period my mom sat me down and started to talk to me about things. I was about 12 and it wasn't a big deal but then it happened again this year because my boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year now. But yeah it's mostly my mom. If it was my Dad, I think I'd be scarred.

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
I think so. I think she didn't want to upset and push Edward away so she let him off easily. But Edward needs to realize that she is a little safe in La Push.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Not often unless it's a stupid fight.

I really had too much going on in my life at that moment. Bad stuff, I mean.

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
I kind of ended up believing Edward. :(

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
kind of. Didn't think much into it at the moment.

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

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
I thought that was cute, and I didn't think bad of Edward. With Volturi and Victoria after her, who knows, you know?

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Usually.
"But," Edward went on, "If I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that."

I still have a year left!

2. What did you theorize Alice had seen?
Victoria plotting with a guy to kill Bella.

3. Did you suspect Edward had ulterior motives in wanting to go to Florida, and what did you suspect those motives were?
I think Edward truly wanted to go to Florida just for Bella's protection.

4. Without being graphic, compare Charlie's attempt at giving Bella "the talk" to your own experience with getting "the talk".
My parents never really had "the talk" with me. The only thing they said to me (while we were watching TV) was, "Be careful about guys."
Hahaha

5. Did Bella forgive Edward too quickly after he stopped her form going to La Push to see Jacob?
I guess, but then again...I'm not sure. Bella knows how protective Edward can be.

6. Are you a person who forgives easily?
Not really. Hahaha. I can hold grudges for a REALLY long time and remember exactly what that person did to me. Kind of bad, I think.
