    Leo's fortune is the only mobile game I've enjoyed playing. It's not free but I definitely don't regret buying it.

    Really like this idea. I don't want to focus on the votes but I still find myself looking at everyone's votes as if we're still on reddit.

    I remember when I'd be assembling my lego's I'd often find one of the pieces that I was looking for, put it behind me so that it wouldn't get mixed back in with the pile. Then when I'd found the next piece and went to get the first one it wasn't there. It wasn't even there when I stood up and looked around, it had just vanished. this happened a couple of times.

    Now I also know that those pieces are called k'nex. I never knew what they were called.

    When my mom's old boyfriend died they had been apart for years but she says that she felt something strange happen when he supposedly died. She felt like someone was watching her and it wasn't until the day after that she learned that he had died. For the next couple of days she felt strange and eventually went to a psychic to try and figure what was bothering her. The psychic, without knowing what my mom was coming to her about asked her if someone she knew had recently died to which she answered yes. The psychic then eventually out of the blue asks her if that persons name was "X" which was correct. The psychic then told her that he was there with them and said some more things that were true, my mom was baffled, she hadn't told her anything but the psychic was able to guess that a person close to her had just died, his name and more. After that visit the feeling of being watched went away.

    I'm kinda skeptical about these things but my mom is so convinced that I am as well sometimes. She's also talked about hearing hello's coming from the door when she's relaxing in bed and just today she told me she thought someone was knocking at the door when no one was.

    I like to believe that there is something else out there and that some can notice it more than others. I know it sounds strange but I've sometimes heard taps in my room at night that aren't my monitor cracking and they just keep going until I acknowledge them. I once told the darkness in my room to stop with the tapping because I couldn't sleep and then it stopped.

    I had to learn Danish and German in school but since I just graduated I don't have to anymore.

    I was never much of a language person but I was able to understand some Danes if they talked slowly and if I wanted to I could almost talk to someone and order food.

    German was alright, when I graduated I could understand just a little bit but not a lot, I could barely form sentences that made some sense and I was never bothered enough to learn the grammar well. I however was able to understand a small boy that walked past me. He was arguing with his little sister about if I was a girl or a boy since I've got long hair.

    3D printing. I think that I got in at a very good time this year since printers are getting cheaper and better fast.

    I think it's just such an interesting thing. If you need something you can just make it at home, don't necessarily have to go out and buy it. I've learned so much from tinkering with it and its settings. 3D printers are pretty neat and will hopefully continue to get better and cheaper.

    I got good at math and physics. I used to do so poorly in both, often among the worst in class. I hated math as a kid because no matter how hard I tried I never did well but I pulled myself together and when I graduated highschool 2 weeks ago I graduated with the highest grade in physics and one of the higher grades in math.

    After that I now know that I can turn things around. Just because you're bad at something doesn't mean you'll be bad at it forever.

    And losing a bunch of weight. I guess I'm pretty happy about that too.

    I'm hoping for really nice conversations on here, maybe similar to and better than r/casualconversation which I've been browsing a lot lately. Reddit can have the memes, I just want to discuss things.

    Also have a pair of wireless Jaybird X 3's that I use when running. I don't really like them though, think that my old beats X were a lot better in every way when it came to practicability.

    I'm a student but during the summers I work at my dad's company. We operate many trips from many companies around the world. It's my job to make sure the guides have everything they need, I wash dishes, buy food, prepare tents for some trips, charge torches, make sure they have everything they need for glacier walks and a lot more.

    No day is the same and I really enjoy it.

    Yes, I've sometimes found myself thinking that Islam are the bad guys and Christianity the good guys. I'm not even religious. I know it's wrong to think like that, I think it's terrible.

    I think that a lot of recent news regarding Isis and all the terrorism have affected me which is scary. I don't want to think like this, I want to learn about them from many angles and not just the one media portraits them as.
