19 Questions to Think About During Quarantine

Hey everybody! Emma here. I know we’re all bored in quarantine, so today I wrote a quick listicle full of 19 random questions to think about. There’s a mish-mash of everything here. Hypotheticals, conversation starters, would you rather, and everything in between. Some of these I found online, some I thought of myself, and others are from friends or siblings.

  1. If a tree falls in a forest and there’s nobody around, who yells timber?
  2. What’s something you loved as a kid, but not anymore?
  3. If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?
  4. What are your top three favorite songs/albums? Why?
  5. If animals could talk, which one would have the meanest mouth? Which would be the nicest?
  6. Would you rather be a hero or a villain? Why?
  7. Do you have a favorite number? What is it and why?
  8. What would you do if you woke up one morning in someone else’s house?
  9. If you could be friends with any one character (movie, book, musical, etc.), who would it be?
  10. If you could have any one talent (not a superpower), what would you want to be able to do?
  11. Some houses have fences, yes? My house didn’t have a fence when we first moved in, we had to get one. Is that the case for all houses? If two neighbors don’t have fences, will their yards be conjoined until one of them gets a fence? I’m so confused.
  12. What was the weirdest dream you had recently? What about the scariest? What was it about?
  13. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
  14. If your shirt isn’t tucked into your pants, are your pants tucked into your shirt?
  15. What is your favorite school subject? Least favorite?
  16. If you were famous, what would you want to be famous for?
  17. If you could steal any character’s (movie, book, musical, etc.) wardrobe, whose clothes would you steal?
  18. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
  19. Is the ‘S’ or ‘C’ silent in scent?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I would love if you could answer one or two of these in the comments, or just fill me in on what you’re doing in quarantine. If you have any questions, comments, or just want to tell me anything, I would love if you could leave me a comment and a link to your blog!

  1. Hi Emma!
    My name’s Olivia and I’m from New Zealand .
    These really got me thinking!
    The weirdest & scariest dream I’ve ever had dates back to when I was seven. I dreamt there was a giant carnivorous snail in the backyard….
    Crazy 7 year old mind!
    I really enjoyed scrolling through these!
    Please, please, PLEASE do more like this!

  2. Hey Olivia!

    I’m so glad you liked my post! That sounds like a pretty scary dream, especially for a seven-year-old! I hope it didn’t scare you too badly!

    I’ll definitely do another post like this! I’m sure I can think of more random questions! My brain can think up some pretty crazy things sometimes!

    Thanks so much for the nice comment! I’ll be sure to check out your blog!

  3. Hi Emma –

    How are you? You’re definitely missed. 🙂

    Thanks for writing this blog post…and I’m going to take a stab and see if I can answer some questions.

    As a kid, I loved swim team. It was, without question, the most exciting part of my summers. We had the craziest, loudest coaches, and everyone on the team really enjoyed being together. I swam competitively from the time I was 4-16.

    I think if animals could talk, that elephants might be the kindest…or whales. They clearly love their family and mourn their loss when one dies.

    My favorite number is 2, but I don’t really know why. It’s always been the number 2. No explanation give. 🙂

    My three favorite albums of all-time have to be the following: (1) Thriller. (2) Grease, the Soundtrack (3) R.E.M. Reckoning – mainly because I’ve listened to them more than any other albums over my lifetime.

    My favorite thing to do in my spare time is be outside. I could be sitting on my porch watching the birds feed their babies, kayaking Goose Creek, riding in a Jeep with the top down, or hiking on a mountainous trail. Just get me outdoors!

    I would want to be famous for a book; but I’d use a pseudonym, a ghost name, so no one would know the real me. I guess my book would be famous, but I wouldn’t have to deal with the problems of fame.

    The chicken and egg question is a good one. Its parallels this one: What came first? The seed or the plant?

    I’m outta here. You’re awesome, Emma, and I miss you and the rest of our Communications class!

    Mrs. Rombach
