These kinds of surveys are always so interesting..! My answers would probably be really similar, since I'm from MD too~ I go to College Park (but I'll be in Tokyo next year!) ;D

Oh wow, no way! Congrats to him :D I'm only a sophomore so unfortunately I only know a few seniors at the moment.. I mostly know underclassmen because I tutor some of them :)

I tried to answer it and we only had a different answer in two of them. (15- which I didn't know, and how to eat a pizza)

Pretty amazing we have the same answers, and the same wording too when we grew up on opposite sides of the globe ^-^

snagging and posting~ *_* (if you don't mind~)
