Have you any regrets? Is there anything that you wish to change either here in the community or in your life?
Not a day goes by without regrets. Not a day goes by where I wish I could have done something differently. The sign of maturity is the ability to move past it and not dwell on it.

Views on me, Misery then? :P
On a scale from 1 to 10 here's a banana.

Didn't you used to be a dick (in the funny way)? Why you serious now?
Dry humor can come off as grating. A lot of times when I say dick things and make dick moves there's generally something else I'm trying to say, often it's a hint.
Although sometimes I just like being a dick, like when that dude (forgot his name) got mad because I called him a cunt in RomU and he came here to complain. That was great.

So you are basically a teacher? Like myself, in the future. Nice.
What subjects do you teach?
What age group?
I teach community computing to adults who are generally computer-illiterate. I also teach workshops for Photoshop, Web Design, Android use and Powerpoint/Presentation Skills. I generally like teaching the workshops more than my permanent classes.

Any advice for a soon-to-be college student? (Well, I technically am, but I'm doing my high school in a community college)
Take your work seriously, and also take your money seriously. Abstain from drinking or spending copious amounts of money on things that aren't necessary to your study or living. Allow yourself a day off to relax. Allow 1-2 hours on each other day to relax away from study. If there are study groups join them, as that will help you with both studying and socializing. Shop sensibly, and try to save a little money each week. Make sure you're 100% sure you're doing the right major(s) because studying something you'll end up hating is just wasting time.

Views on me(Hetty, nhi_po, LaTyrannia)?
You're okay.

Because you teach Powerpoint skills, what's your views on the competition of PowerPoint? Mainly, Prezi?
Do your students get some sort of degree at the end of your workshops?

(Man, I'm studying to become a teacher for kids from the age of 5-12. And this is so interesting :D)

I've heard of Prezi, that's it. I'm asked to teach Powerpoint so that's generally where I take it. Besides with that workshop it's more about the oral presentation than anything.
The workshops are generally just weekend deals that students get skills from. The community computing course gets people a certificate at the end.

I used to play Rugby until a knee injury put a stop to that.
The only sportsy thing I do nowadays is complain when my favorite teams suck ass.
Opinions on Emma Stone? (looks, acting, etc)
I never cared for her acting, even in Zombieland which I loved. Her large forehead doesn't make up for her butter face and massive frog eyes either.

Not into it. I know most things about American Handegg because I used to play Madden quite a bit but in New Zealand that kind of thing doesn't get much air time.

Yes. But just because I see vast amounts of useless rock doesn't mean I can't find any diamonds hidden somewhere.

Care to elaborate on reasons why you consider yourself a misanthropist?

Do you consider Arpegi to be vast amounts of useless rock or are some of the members actually hidden diamonds?

Not saying. I will generally answer any questions but I'm not going to step on any toes.

I've run out of things to ask you, not because I don't have more to ask, but rather, I am now satisfied from what you've said, to have a proper, fair opinion of you. My questions end here.
