    Hmmmm...I've been looking at engineering lately(I like building things, especially things that go fast). Lots of tools are needed, and, scrap metal. Plus it makes lots of money.

    So what skill will you focus on to be more like Superman? Strength training? Speed? Remember this is about something you want to put 6 weeks of effort into!

    Engineering always seems so interesting and fun. But it seems stressful though, too, because if you make a mistake building a bridge or a train or something, lives could be at stake!

    No, no!! Risk taking is good! Taking on responsibility is GOOD! I'm just always hoping that the guys and gals who built the bridges I drive over or the tall building I stand in were paying attention in class and doing their homework.

    Fitness training!

    There are few things out there I love more, than spending time in the gym, working out nutrition, and inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle!

    How about you Solorien? You haven't told us yet, have you :O? If you'd like, of course.
    Do you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears?

    I would probably pratice in the stock market.. I would probably need to learn when things drop and when things rise. If I were able to learn the stock market, it would drasticly make an improvement in my life.

    Another useful skill. I'm impressed by people who live the fitness trainer lifestyle... I can't motivate myself to work out or eat really healthy for more than 3 days in a row!

    Talk about risky! That's a high-pressure kind of skill. But I bet it's exciting!

    The reason this question came to my mind is that I just signed up for a 6 week class to learn how to shoot a bow. I've always been interested in archery, and now I'm going to try to learn it! This skill will come in handy during the Zombie Apocalypse!

    I'd probably get into Law school if I'm old enough.
    My parents don't want because both of them are doctors.
    So does my grandparents. They said Lawyers are liars...
    The skill I might learn is to... Cleverly save people out of sticky situations.
    Serve 'em justice! (I wanna be a defence attorney... So, I might need to lie... A lot.)

    I wanted to get into archery for a long time now, my parents won't approve.
    How's it going so far, Solo? I mean... Growtopian Mom.

    I watch enough Walking Dead to know how to survive in a zombie apocalypse, kk?

    I'd actually like to be a police officer xD

    Police Officer: So if there ever is a Zombie Apocalypse, I'd be able to find survivors, find an 'empty' prison and survive. #WalkingDeadReference
