How Often Do You Read Books?

  • Every day - I'm a massive bookworm.
  • At least once a week.
  • Only when my TV's broken and the Internet isn't working.
  • Hardly ever - unless it's for school.

Nope. Good riddance.  :) Okay, I'm totally kidding. I'm gonna miss that guy so much that I don't even know how to properly put it into words. He's such a great person, and I can't recall ever thinking of him as anything else. Everything about his personality is truly admirable, and I can proudly (but also maybe not so proudly because this is embarrassing) say that I look up to him; I think I kinda always have, even when I'd never communicated with him in any way. His debating skills - as everyone has mentioned - are outstanding, his intelligence is amazing, and his sense of humor is one of the best I've seen on this site (no offense to anyone else! you all have unique charms of your own!). He's always been so respectful to everyone, even if he strongly opposes their views. I can safely say he's one of the coolest people I've ever met thus far. Mark's username is one of the first I remember seeing when I first joined KW, and I'm sure it's one I'll never forget. I really hate seeing yet another legend go. But I'm truthfully certain he'll go places in life, and I hope the world treats him well. ♥
