Mission Possible. My partner and I started calling it Mission Impossible last year and sometimes when I talk about it I still accidentally say Mission Impossible

I like Biological ID events the best (Forestry, Herpetology, Ornithology, Entomology) simply because they're the easiest to apply. You can go walking with your friends and be like "Oh, that's a [blank] bug." *hair flip* Funnily enough, though, I've never got on one of these yet. Got beat to Entomology this year. :/

Then of course I like SoM, being an avid music player, and Food Science, which SO helped me fall in love with. And anything to do with math. (Heredity, Metric Mastery, etc.) Annnd anything I'm really good at, like WIDI. :P

Oh but wait that's stuff I like.

Least favorite? Basically stuff I haven't tried. Dynamic Planet, Water Quality, Microbe Mission, etc. I'm sure they're completely interesting topics but they simply don't interest me much at all. (I'm not really a Bio person.) I'm trying Anatomy this year to see if I can like something new, but with my hatred of Biology, I'm not sure how this is going to work out. I guess I'm kind of fascinated by skin, though.

Also building events irk me, probably because we're not a very "handy" family. We practically never build anything and it's a hassle just to get anything done. I think SoM almost killed me last year, and Mission Possible the year before that, but I'm resolving to stand on top of my instruments this year (I think I'll have our first instrument done by Monday) :D

I thought that the event Compute This was extremely annoying and the directions and requirements were vague. They didn't have it last year (thank you) ir this year, but I thought that it was possibly the hardest event I ever did. I like computers but Compute This was pushing that love.

Also I didn't care for Boomilever, Towers is the best!
Happy to be here

LOL that's what I did. Last year, I did Forestry, and during a invitational, I kept on pointing at trees and saying the type of tree. My friends were amazed. (jk they weren't)

Dynamic Planet isn't bio at all, by the way. :P
