Conversation: I Ask A Question, You Answer/You Ask A Question, I Answer. Repeat.
Nothing is worse than trying to drag a conversation out of someone...especially if it is someone you are forced to socialize with. If someone asks you a question, answer thoughtfully and use more than "I don't know" or monosyllabic answers. At the very least, ask a question back. Example below...
Me: Hey, how was your day today? You: (Bad) Okay. (Good) It was great, we did XYZ and ABC. How was yours? (Compromise) Okay, how was yours? Me: (In response to "Good"/"Compromise") We did 123 and 456. What do you have planned for tomorrow? You: (Bad) Nothing. (Good) Not much, cleaning. You?
Using my Sparkpoints page to collect points is very helpful. When it comes to answering the trivia questions, it can get discouraging to get so many wrong because some questions I feel are trick questions. If you come across a question you don't want to answer just refresh your page and you'll get a new question.100
No matter what, don't be afraid to ask a question. I've been struggling and every question, no matter the importance or subject, has been answered respectfully and honestly. No one has said "that's silly" even if it was. It's nice to know that you can get help like that.
