1. Do you think it's important to be on time?
Yeah, I think it definitely is, because it’s basic manners to be on time for things. You know, I think you‘d agree it’s pretty rude to keep people waiting, and so it kind of leaves a bad impression on people.
2. How do you feel when others are late?
Well I guess it kind of depends, because I mean, if there’s a good reason for being late, you know, like getting stuck in traffic, then I won’t really mind that much. But you know, if the person doesn’t really have any excuse and it’s simply because they couldn’t be bothered to arrive on time, then I suppose I might feel a bit annoyed.
If someone’s late by only a few minutes or so, then that’s no big deal, you know, I have no problem at all with that. But if someone’s late by, like, an hour or something, then it can be pretty annoying, especially if I’ve gone to the trouble of getting there on time.
3. Are you, yourself, late very often?
Yeah, I am. And I know it’s a bad habit, but for some reason, no matter how hard I try, I always seem to end up being late for things!
No, I wouldn’t say I am. You know, most of the time I’m pretty good with being on time for things, because I always make a quite big effort not to be late.
7. When does time seem to move fast, and when does it seem to move slowly?
Well, I think most people would agree that time moves fast when you’re having fun. And a prime example would be when playing computer games, cos I mean, whenever I play online with my friends, it always seems that only an hour or two has passed, but in actual fact, it’s probably been four or five hours!
And time normally goes slowly when you’re bored or simply just not enjoying yourself. For example, I remember at school, some of my classes felt like they would never end, when in fact they were just, like, 45 minutes long!
8. If you could go back in time, what would you do differently?
That’s a good question. What would I do differently? Um….., ok well first of all, if I could go back in time, I would definitely spend more time practicing the piano, because you know, I never really practiced that much when I was younger, and I kind of regret it now, because I’d love to be able to play the piano well.
