  • My word would be: goverment

  • Olivia R.

    Music

  • Anna G.

    Write.

    • John Oxide

      Hey Anna, just curious. . .what kind of writing are you into? I also love to write.

      • Olivia R.

        I do as well. I would love to hear more about what you two like to write. :)

        • John Oxide

          Oh cool Liv, what do you write?

          • Olivia R.

            I normally like to write short stories, but right now I am working on my first novel. Since I am a history girl, it will be set in 1910. What do you like to write, John?

          • John Oxide

            I’m kind of the opposite of you. I’ve been writing a novel for a few years, but short stories are not as much my thing. (I wrote my first short story that wasn’t for school the other week.) I also really love writing poetry.

          • Olivia R.

            Really? That sounds really cool! Every time I try to write a novel, it doesn’t go well at all. So I am hoping this one will be different. :) I have never been into writing poetry, but I like to read it sometimes. :)

      • Anna G.

        Fiction. Nonfiction. Poetry. Fantasy/futuristic. True stories. Thoughts on Scripture. Etc.

        • John Oxide

          Aka. everything? Lol

          • Anna G.

            Haha not exactly but kinda…ok that makes no sense whatsoever. Sorry. I’ll try to explain…just a minute.

          • Anna G.

            I have a fantasy/futuristic story in the works but it’s currently stuck because there is a problem I can’t solve at the center of the plot. I’ve written a few short stories and I’m working on another. However, I view fiction and poetry more as something I do for pleasure than something I would pour my life into. I would love to write a biography or retelling of a historical Christian figure. I’m pretty good at writing (nonfic) about historical topics. Persuasive writing makes a whole lot more sense since I recently found Aristotle’s method of persuasive speech/writing. What I really wish I could do is find a ministry or a passion for something and write to raise awareness of it/ support it. When God teaches me something from His word or gives me a different perspective on something I already knew, I usually write about it, both to get it down so I remember it better and to figure out how to articulate it to others (if appropriate). The ultimate goal of any of this being to advance the gospel and glorify God. What it comes down to is, I’m pretty sure I have a gift for writing and I’m not entirely sure what to do with it yet. ~Anna

      • The Bean

        I love writing too.

        • John Oxide

          Cool beans! Lol.

        • John Oxide

          What kind?

          • The Bean

            For some reason, I like writing technical articles best, mostly on forestry (my passion). I also like writing fiction.

          • John Oxide

            Cool. Are you working on anything write now (pun intended)?

          • The Bean

            Yes. Two different novels, and three different articles right now.

          • John Oxide

            Wow! That’s a lot. What’re your novels about?

          • The Bean

            How high expectations can change someone’s life. When I first got the idea for that book, that was not exactly what I had in mind. But it slowly drifted toward that.

          • John Oxide

            Cool!

          • The Bean

            Hey John, I think that like me, you noticed that a lot of rebelutionaries like writing. Do you think that starting a website for the purpose of getting these teens together so they can share their knowledge and help each other develop their talents would be a good idea, or does it seem a little far-fetched or useless? Or does something like that already exist?

          • John Oxide

            Hahahahaha. Ok. . .email me at [email protected]. We need to talk!

          • The Bean

            Actually, the idea came to me a few days ago as I was praying. Problem is, I live in western Switzerland and people who are able to help me develop my English writing talents are kind of rare. French? No problem. But English… most people here hate that language they have to learn but find so hard and illogical.

          • John Oxide

            You’re from Switzerland! So cool. . .And you’ve prayed about this for a few days! Man, I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but I haven’t actually prayed at all really about it.

          • The Bean

            You’ve been thinking about it?

          • John Oxide

            Mmhm

          • The Bean

            Okay. Gotta go now, but I won’t forget.

    • Haven Asnip

      I believe that is two words 😉

      • Louis Gervais

        Guess again. =^D The word counter on Word says it’s one word. I asked Google and it appears that hyphenated words are usually counted as one. I couldn’t think of a non-hyphenated word which conveyed the same meaning so… At least I tried… =^D

        • Haven Asnip

          Hmmm. I didn’t know that. I guess I learn a new thing everyday! I like your word! :)

          • Louis Gervais

            But… Off the record… Just between you and me…. If I wrote the rules, I’d say it is more like two words X^D

          • John Oxide

            Isn’t every day two words?

          • Haven Asnip

            Haha! You should know you’re the one who wants to *lead*. Lol 😉

        • John Oxide

          Lol

      • Olivia R.

        I think it could count. :) 😉

      Amen sister!

  • Words

    • John Oxide

      Do you write or do public speaking stuff?

      • Not public speaking exactly, but writing and discussion for the most part. :)

  • I’ve been thinking about this since yesterday and kept trying to come up with one word that would cover everything I want to do and I think that I’ve found one word that would cover all of them and that word is Christlike (Or Christ like, I normally type Christlike but Google says it can be typed both ways.) Now I’m rambling.

    • This might seem like an odd choice as most of the people here are typing things such as jobs they want to have or something like that, but if you really think about it this covers everything! Like being a Christlike wife, mother, writer, daughter, sister, friend etc.

    • The Bean

      Hey! We chose the same word!

      • Haha. Yes, we did. That’s pretty cool, I guess I’m not the only one who thought it fitting. : )

  • Daisy M.

    Humanitarian.

  • Regan Seba

    Kindness. Sincerity. (am I allowed to have two?)

    BTW, love that you put ski in there. Skiing is definitely worthy of this list. 😀

  • Rebekah

    Heal

  • Jessie

    Counsel or Investigate. I am stuck between jobs.

  • The Bean

    Christlike.

  • Dan Edwards

    How do you say ‘To hard for just one person’ in one word?

    • The Bean

      Toohardforjustoneperson.

      • Dan Edwards

        Nice

        • The Bean

          You are very welcome :)

    • The Bean

      I just noticed your first comment was ten hours ago. Welcome to the Reb!

      • Dan Edwards

        Thanks!

    • John Oxide

      Welcome Dan! Maybe, fellowship. . .community. . .something like that?

    • You might say, “difficult,” but I like The Bean’s idea. :)

      • Dan Edwards

        “Difficult” definitely is true.

    • The Bean

      I just invented this word: “intractasolous”. It comes from the Latin words “intractabile” (intractable) and “solus” (alone). I anglicized it and tried to make it seem changed from years of use to make it seem more believable :)
      It seems to correspond to your situation. Tell me if you like it.

      • Angela Pycroft

        That is an awesome word! I will have to remember that :)

      • Dan Edwards

        That’s awesome.

  • Dan Edwards

    I will also say “enjoyable”

  • Gabrielle

    BIG!!

  • The Bean

    Ostrich.

    • John Oxide

      Excuse me?

      • The Bean

        Ostrich. No particular reason.

        • John Oxide

          Lol

  • Christina

    Passionate

  • Angela Pycroft

    Anagnosephilia

    • John Oxide

      Huh?

      • Deep love of reading. 😉

        • John Oxide

          Why didn’t I know that. . .I want to know that. That’s sad. I have that condition, and I didn’t even know it.

          • Haha! Yeah, well, I confess that I did google it myself, otherwise, I wouldn’t know the meaning either. 😉 But it is a great word!

    • Dan Edwards

      Where did you learn that word?

      • Angela Pycroft

        I took/am taking Latin for several years so I can pretty accurately create the scientific terms for things… But I did check the dictionary first xD

    • The Bean

      I have that condition, that’s for sure (9000 pages per year on average)! I am also a rhinotillexomaniac.

  • John Oxide

    Koala

    • Haylie

      OH MY DUDE best answer yet!

    • Haven Asnip

      Huh?

      • John Oxide

        It’s my personal fad.

  • Jessie

    I don’t know if I have any goals. But if had to describe a goal of mine in one word, it would be: Help.

  • – Trent –

    Surrender.

  • My goal is different from others .its not just one but many ,all told to me by god .they have one thing which lead to them .Follow.

  • Kate

    My goal is to be more like Christ, through everything I do. I want to LIVE for Jesus!! No matter what life holds.
