If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?

Firstly, I would wish for world peace because I feel that peace is very important and some places in the world are still in much chaos. Secondly, I would wish that I could have autographs from every famous person that I like because then I can show them off to all my friends! Finally, I wish that I could have tons of money! Even though money isn’t everything in the world, it can still get you (and me) some awesome stuff, don’t you agree?

Do you view the glass ‘half full’ or ‘half empty’?  

I view it as both. It’s ‘half full’ because it shows that I have made progress and should be happy about that; it’s ‘half empty’ because it shows that I still have a long way to go before I achieve true success.

You can only pick one:  banjo, butterfly, or babbling brook.  Which would you choose and why?

I’ll pick the butterfly since my mother and I both think that it is a fascinating creature.
