Hello !

There is a lot of things that I like spending my time on and the main things are being with my friend, parties and shopping.
I goes in school still and the meaning is that I知 going to be something in media, projects or something like that. But that I will think on later. Like to take the days as they come.

Hi Emma, it's nice to finally meet you after hearing so much of you.

After reading your introduction, I was stunned to learn that you live in northern Sweden as I know the main body of the population is located in the South of Sweden, where the weather is somewhat warmer.

So as this is an introduction, let me talk you about myself.
I live in Canada and I speak mainly french, yet I am fully bilingual. I am 26 and finished university; I did a Bachelor's degree with honors in Psychology and I am presently finishing up a Master's degree in Social Work.
My work is not related to my studies however. I work in politics. Specifically, I work for the House of Commons of Canada. I have a full time permanent job there.
A bit like you, I like spending time with friends and partying. Contrary to popular beleif, I like shopping and like to be well dressed. First impressions are a big factor in today's social interactions. I also like to spend time in the gym keeping fit. Finally, I like doing renovations like working on my house and doing mechanics on my car.

Well I guess that about sums it up.

Now as I am allowed to ask you one question, here it is:
Talk to me about your future; specifically, where do you see yourself in 4-5 years? I'm interested in what your plans are in your life.

It was a pleasure speaking with you and I hope to learn more about you.

I am one of the youngest of the people partaking in this game at 16. I'm also the ony slavic contestant if I remember correctly, born and living in Poland. I spend most friday evenings with quite a varied bunch of friends (no idea why some people don't like hippies - they're so damn cool! ). I am a great fan of Queen, a newbie cartoonist and - from what a few people told me - quite a comedian.

Please tell me about your hobbies

Hello there, Emma.

My name is Terje, and I知 a 20 year old Norwegian student, currently living in Trondheim. I知 studying a mix of disciplines from the social sciences, namely economics, history, political science, and sociology. I have no idea what I will be when I致e finished my Bachelor degree; though I suspect and fear that my only work option will be teaching...

In my spare time I usually hang around Heroes Community. Though this makes me sound like a complete nerd, I feel I must add that I do like being around 途eal people as well; I知 just not very good at it. That, and my friends all are in the army, or some such nonsense...

When I知 not browsing forums, I can most probably be found with my nose in a book, broadening my horizon, as it痴 called., while listening to some good music most likely indie rock or punk. When I occasionally meet some of my friends, I enjoy having a quiet party, with some beers and good conversation. On hangover days, I find it quite refreshing to take a walk in the forest.

My question to you is: Do you perceive yourself as a friend of nature?

Whats up Emma?

My name is Christian and i'm 17 years old(Don't let my young age scare you, theres enough other things that'll do that )

In my spare time i usually try to lose some weight, go to school, and ofcourse play World of Warcraft.
I've got brown hair, bluish eyes, and more black clothes than you've got admireres(ofcourse not only black clothes, but it's 70 % of the clostets inventory =)).

And i've actually got a question for you, what's your dream in Media, to work behind or infront of the Camera? Or is it a little more geekish?

Hello, Emma.

I must say that charming beautiful Swedish girls without relying on my looks will be a new challenge, but I'm sure it'll be fun.

My name is Ilya, and I'm a computer science student at York University so I guess one could say that I'm a bit of a geek. Of course, being labeled as such may be a cause to some misunderstanding. You see, while I do enjoy hacking computers and writing code (I wrote a pretty cool AI for poetry generation a few months ago) it's not my entire life.

In fact, many of my friends were surprised at my choice of major, since my mind is tilted towards the artistic side. I paint, write songs, play the guitar and read a lot of literature.

I don't like sitting in front of the computer and unlike most of my friends, I love physical activity and the outdoors. While I can't stand competitive sports such as Football, I practice martial arts, yoga, kayaking and canoeing, hiking, swimming and running.

It's a shame that we were asked to write a few paragraphs about ourselves, but only ask one question about you. I hate talking about myself. Getting to know more about a charming girl such as yourself is far more enjoyable. Anyway, I will ask the following: how did you get to know Stiven, and why did you agree to participate in this contest of his?

Hey Emma!

For a good time call Leo @ 01-1-800-7399(sexy)...

You won't be disappointed! ***


Seriously, my name is L駮 and, first-&-foremost, I am a self-made millionaire. I have my own Plastic Surgery office and cater to all different kinds of clients...from your "regular average Joe/Jane" up to major celebrities! (i.e. Alannis Morisette, Dan Akroyd, Alex Trebec, etc.)

I was pleased to see that based on the look of your picture, my "cosmetic adjustments" would never be required, since you're so beautiful. BUT, looking at your picture, I could also tell that my other "special skills" would come in handy, if ever we were to have some time alone.

Well, while we're talking about me-me-me...I am the only person in Ottawa (where I live) that owns a Lamborghini and also his own Horse-Ranch. So, I would really enjoy taking you for a ride in either my car or on one of my stallions. You do enjoy riding on a stallion, don't you?!

Anyways, if you would like be my arm-candy/trophy wife, then you're my kind of woman...BUT, if you didn't buy any of that bullcrap I wrote above, then you are also my kind of woman...because it shows that you're intelligent and won't let anyone trick you into liking them!

As for my question:

Are "they" real?

Ah, Emma, Emma reminds me of soft cream on toasted bread served around 8:30 in the morning. Just when you are so full of temper, as you say. That痴 good I like temperament in female species.
So, I知 Svarog, and so far that痴 all you need to know about me. As things progress I will reveal one dark secret of mine when I survive each round until we finish in 10 weeks, when you池e gonna get the big Svarog prize. Haha.. Tempting, huh? Well, I have to keep you interested somehow. (no sex allusions there. Honestly.)

On to the actual topic.
Now I have to spout blah blah about me. One thing we have in common that痴 parties. One thing that makes me your arch-enemy that痴 shopping, but that痴 not very popular activity among guys anyway, so unless anyone from the participants admits that he loves shopping, thereby bringing upon himself the excommunication by all male organisms, also known as the Curse of Queerness, I致e got nothing to fear. I do have one advantage though - I live southernmost from all the boys here. That makes us two a vibrant match the burning passion of the south and the icy elegance of the north. (i wont talk yet about fusion ) And I must say, SOME nordic elegance that is... Wakes inside a man the howling instinct of a wolf, and makes him dance around in circles on Bantu tribal melodies.
There痴 only one question left then: Will Emma rise against prejudices and unite the worlds poles in a symbolic act of Internet romance, or will she fail to deliver the Earth of political divisions, war, starvation and private health care once and for all? Stay tuned and find out in the next episodes of WANTED. *insert Stiven jerky goodbye phrase here* (just tossing stivie. Take no notice. )

Ooops, I forgot my question. Well since I might not survive long enough days to have another chance, I値l spend (努aste, more appropriate) this one to find out about Stiven: Is he really the self-proclaimed women charmer he claims to be, or put bluntly, where would you rank him between a macho man and a sweetheart? Or, since he痴 gonna whine for this one, as a second option you can take: Do you prefer cats to dogs and why so? [this is my instant character evaluation question. It never misses. ]

Hello Emma,

Im Dragon Slayer, and let me say you have been the slayer of my heart! Since the moment Stefan posted that picture of you, I have thought of no other girl but yourself.

Anyway enough drooling about you, let me tell you a bit about me. Well, im 17 years old. I live in Adelaide, Australia. I am of Italian descent. I am the biggest party lover you will ever find no, there is no bigger. Everyday these holidays I have been out and about, being the social butterfly that I am! I don稚 visit here as much as I used to anymore, just too much too do in real life, but since I have seen you, I have new reason to come here! I am no stranger to love either I dumped my last girlfriend as soon as I heard about you!

I enjoy playing football (soccer) when im not out partying. I also like to keep up with the fashions so shopping is also on my agenda. I don稚 usually sit at the computer for long periods of time, hurts my eyes. I love dance music and R&B, yea club music! I enjoy watching football as well, especially if Juventus are playing! I know that being from Sweden you probably wouldn稚 like them but hopefully they will grow on you!

Anyway I better go, people to see things to do  I cant wait to learn more about you. Oh and before I go I have one question. Do you have a fantasy/Dream?

So now we move on to the next step of this competition, I'm gonna answer alla your questions.

Conan:
I really don't now. As I said in the presentation of myself I try to take the days as they comes. I don't know yet if I will go on with the school or if I知 going to work. Where I stand now i life I think that I will work. I would like to get my own company someday, but that is to long into the future so we will see.

Terje_with_the_long_name:
I did'nt really understand your question. I can't say that I'm "friend of the nature" more or less then anybode else.

TheRealDeal:
I think that i would like to try both of the alternitives

IYY:
Well, to make a lond story short. I got to know Stiven when I was playing Tetris on a website. We got to talk and now we have done that for a couple of years. I said yes to do this competition beacuse he asked so nice and I thought that it would be fun to try to do something like this

Leo_Lion:
Yes, "they" are real.

Svarog:
I liked your question If i would rank Stiven I would say that he is more to the sweetheart, I don't belive that he is a macho-man anyway (and this will he whine about)

Dragon_Slayer:
Ofcourse I have a fantasy/dream, everyone has one or two, I think. But I don't know if I should tell them this earlie in this game. But one wish I have that I can tell you about is that someday I would like to move to a warmer place sometime. Maybe to Spain or something like that.

Dingo:
My favorite time of the year i the summer. But spring is on a close second, beacuse I like snowboarding

So, now my question to all of you:

Where do all of you see yourselfs in 5 years?

Thanks for me.

Love Emma

Your assignment of the week:

Show yourself.

You are allowed to show a maximum of two pictures, one of yourself (optional) and one that means something to you (not a pic on yourself).

An explanation why you picked your picture(s) is allowed and recommended.

You are also allowed to ask Emma another question and come up with an answer to her question.

Your posts still have to be of an understandable length, so an explanation in book format trying to use all the 1000+ words to explain your picture is a no go

Also we have a new rule: you are not allowed to ask questions about me directly nor indirectly, even if i am flattered that you take the time to ask questions about me in a competition about something else i think that you should focus your attention on Emma instead

posting deadline: 6th may 23:00 CET time.


EDIT:

commenting Dragon_slayers edit, if there are picture problems in any way you are allowed to edit the post until it works or giving advice to others how to fix it. But those edits must be done the same day as the orginal post CET time.

Ok, I'll go first



This is me. I picked this picture because this is what I usually look like. It's in black and white because I strongly dislike colour photography, and think it takes all the life out of the photo. Black and white is the natural state for a photograph, leave colour for the real world.

The second image is a bit big, so I'll only post a URL to it: http://www.hipgallery.com/photopost2/data/500/16431my_music.jpg

These are all of my favorite singers and songwriters. Most are from the 60's and 70's, the best period for music in my opinion. There are the Russian bards (such as Vladimir Vysotsky) and rock pioneers (Mashina Vremeni, Akvarium, DDT). Of course, the hippies: John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix. And some other talanted folks.

Music means a lot to me, especially when it has meaningful lyrics. I think that it is the ultimate form of expression, uniting melody and poetry. True musicians, just as artists and poets, sacrifice their lives for us and should be honoured.

As for your Emma's personal question of where I see myself in 5 years: well, who knows? 5 years is too far into the future to plan. I could be getting my Master's degree in computer science, or I could be traveling around the world with some good friends, sleeping in a tent and playing the guitar all along the way. Or maybe I'll be leading the Communist revolution of Canada .

This is me. The picture is taken approximately one year ago, druing a vorspiel I held in my dig, during the celebration we Norwegians have when we finish our upper secondary education. You can also see my nice, pink cozy-jacket.



As my second picture, I致e chosen this panorama view over the Norwegian city Molde, where I lived for close to three years. It is not so much the city itself I wish to show you, but it痴 more what this city represents to me.
Most of my friends are either from Molde, or from towns close by. So Molde represents friendship.
In Molde, I received my final pre-university education, by some of the most amazing teachers I致e ever had the pleasure of studying under. Because of this, Molde also represents knowledge.
As I mentioned, are most of my friends from Molde, and that痴 where I met them. And what does one do when one is with friends? One drinks. So Molde also represents some of the best parties I致e ever been to.
Molde was the first place where I lived on my own. True, along with two of my best mates, but still, on my own. Molde therefore represents independence and companionship, all in one.
This picture also displays the magnificent nature of Norway; mountain, forest and fjord. Molde therefore represents nature as well.

Thanks to ImageShack for Free Image Hosting

So, to your question: Where do I see myself in 5 years?
Well, like IYY said, 5 years is a long time, but I might have some clues, none the less. First, if everything goes as planned, I should be done with my Bachelor degree in 2 years. Then, I run the risk of being conscripted. If I am forced to serve in the army, and find that I like it there, I might enlist for a few years more. Maybe serve under UN mandate in Africa or some such.
If that doesn稚 happen, I am very inclined to taking another Bachelor, maybe Archaeology, as I am very fascinated with history.
But of course, these are all guesses. I might be living in my parents basement, for all I know. I might be studying in some college, I could be working, I could be dead. Who knows?

EDIT: Fixed (fingers crossed) the url for the first pic...
EDIT2: Uploaded it again; if this doesn't help, I'll consider it fate.

Hello again Emma!

Well, I'm glad to see that you didn't vote me out because of my jokes. This tells me that you have a great sense of humour & appreciate someone who can make you laugh. That's good, because there's lots more where that came from!

As for your question: In 5 years, I see myself as holding a seat in my City's Municipal Council. This means that I will have entered into Politics, as I have always dreamed of doing. I love to help those around me and wish to make the world a better place...so, starting off by improving the City where I live, would simply be a small step on a long & interesting journey!

I would also like to be a father by then, not just because it would get me more votes , but because I am looking forward to it!

Now, it is time for me to show myself, so BEHOLD:




This is me back in August of 2004; I was on a "Polynesian dinner-cruise" in Waikiki, on Oahu Island, in Hawaii. Pineapple cocktails rock!

Now here is a picture of something "about me", without exactly showing you a picture "of me". Once more, BEHOLD:




All I can say is: "Just because I have a huge one, doesn't mean that I act like one!"

+++As for my question:

Does size really matter?

Uhhhg.... I have absolutly no good photos of me, and the only ones i do have are ones i took on my mobile phone... Ohh well here goes nothing!


This first photo is of me around last year sometime. I think it was just before i left home to go out with some mates on a friday... or saterday...


This second pic is of my car. My car means alot to me because its not some mummy and daddy's car. I had to work hard and pay for the entire thing myself. Being my first car aswell i treat it like my baby so i consider it very close to me.

EDIT: Oh i noticed that my pics have a tendency to not show up the first time so just refresh the page, or go to show picture if they dont work. Dont disqualify me for editing stiven
