What on earth is an albatross?

I had a feeling you would ask me this xD

"a very large, chiefly white oceanic bird with long, narrow wings, found mainly in the southern oceans."

The average wingspan of an albatross is 3 metres and it's easily possible for them to fly 10,000 miles without a break! Pretty cool, right? :lol:

Why do you like geography so much?

Good question, fellow geographer.

Okay, so for some reason when I was younger I used to be really into the earth, like volcanoes and earthquakes! I thought it was magical that the planet that can provide us with so many benefits also has an evil side too :p

My parents took a shine to this and bought me loads of geography books to aid my learning from a young age, and me being a bookworm it all suddenly stuck in my head! Even to this day the world still manages to give me so many surprises and I just love learning more and more about it.

Mmh. It depends on the context, really.

I get you like really cool scenic pictures, but the "twentyone" in your user name, what does that stand for or mean for you, or why did you use that?

Actually "twentyonehorizons" was an amalgamation of my 2 favourite bands :p twenty one (pilots) and (bring me the) horizon :)

But yeah I can see what you mean as I have a love for scenic photos! It would also make sense as 21 is one of my favourite numbers so I guess you could say that it has an alternate meaning to it too :whoops:

Favourite subject other than geography?

Hmm this is quite easy as I don't like many other subjects :p I like French quite a bit, because I just generally find it one of the more relaxed lessons whereas core lessons such as maths or English tend to be a lot more intense and heads-on. I also tend to do quite well in the work, too.

The same goes for my chemistry lessons too, (Flapjack would kill me otherwise) because I find it a lot more simple to understand and I like the teachers that I have for those lessons. Unfortunately, I didn't do triple sciences, so we should be moving onto Additional Biology or Physics soon :( I'm sure I'll take chemistry for my A-Level, it's a lesson I personally identify with better.

1. I have a shoebox in my cupboard that I keep all of my dearest things, and no one looks in there so I feel that that'd be appropriate.

2. I usually tend to think of my best friend. We usually message each other the second we wake up, so she's usually the first thought in my head.

3. I've never played paintball, but I've played laser tag a few times! I think it's absolutely great, and I'd go right now if I could :)

1. I guess it depends what it is. If it's for a person I think about their positive reaction when I complete the thing. If it's a thing like studying, I think about my results I'll get in the summer and how I worked so hard to get those grades

2. I like hats, yes, not necessarily on me though :P I've never really suited hats much.

I always order the same thing :D quarter pounder with no cheese, regular fries and coke zero.

You're bloody great. Obviously I didn't know that well before I was staff, but I kinda knew who you were. I thought we were very different tho. Since becoming a part of the staff team however, I've found we have a lot of similarities and our personalities are definitely in harmony with each other. I can always have a laugh with you and your messages, like I can relate to a lot of things you say and opinions you have.

You're also <3 adorable <3 and send me lots of cat and dog pictures so like how can I not get along with you?

Thanks for becoming friends with meeee :heart:



because it's been a while, i'm gonna ask you for an opinion as well ^^ :)

Well first off, you're the geography buddy of the ages, even though you don't take geography anymore (snake)

all jokes aside though, you're also an amazing friend and we can always joke about some of the posts we've seen across the Internet and I can always feel confident talking to you about school matters and you'd give me awesome advice if I ever asked for it. When I talk to you it honestly feels like I've known you for years, in the best way. And that's awesome! :)

plus some of the things you say or comment just makes me laugh, like you probably don't intend to but you're very funny. so yeah, thanks for also being a great friend even before I joined the staff team <3

also pretty sure I said this before but thanks again for getting me through the exam period because seeing your PM titles like "4 DAYS TO GO!!!!11" (or probably something of that caliber tbh) made me feel really positive and you kept me happy throughout the exam season! so thankssss

why is the sky blue and not another colour?

During the day time sunlight scatters blue light more than red light making it a blue colour. Near sunset the blue scatter is out of sight as the sun is moving away therefore we see more orange and red hues (physics!)

Oooh, this is actually really hard haha. But I'd have to go for the White Queen from Alice in Wonderland. She was always my favourite character in the Tim Burton one plus I feel it would be quite easy to gather costume and makeup etc :)

i was watching the science channel and they had a bunch of shows about amazing savants. One guy couldn't count to 10, but he could play any piece of music perfectly after only hearing it once. no need to practice. and never forget it ever, even after 10+ years, he could play something again just as perfectly....

you're awesome btw, merry christmas!

(very) belated Christmas to you too bud, youíre smashing

and yeah I have, and itís really crappy. Majority of the time itís due to negative people or situations around me pulling down my mood and my overall mental health. Itís still something Iím partially dealing with. My advice for it is to try and put yourself first, however hard it might seem, and think of every possible route that could happen. Weigh up all the pros and cons of each decision and then make it so the most beneficial option happens

Do you want to get married someday?

I never used to like the thought of marriage ceremonies due to the fact that they were too expensive and that they arenít always indicative of a commitment for a long duration of time as there are an abundance of different ways people portray commitments such as having a house or car down under both names. Or maybe thatís just my overly cynical view of the world and personally I just hate being the centre of attention and being all dressed up.

However as of recently Iíd like the thought of having a wedding one day :wub:
