One of the biggest TikTok trends right now is doing tests of friendships. To do this, two people will have a set of questions and film their answers separately so they don’t know how they scored until the very end, when it’s time to edit the video. Ella and I have been friends for years, so we figured we’d do this Journalism style.
Note: We typed our answers on separate docs on separate laptops, so we didn’t know each other’s answers until they were put here on the same document.
Mackenzie: My favorite movie is La La Land. I really don’t know Ella’s favorite movie (oops) but if I were to guess, it would be Pride and Prejudice.
Ella: My favorite movie is either Pride and Prejudice or Marie Antoinette depending on the day and I think Mackenzie’s favorite movie is La La Land.
Mackenzie: My favorite color is constantly changing, but it is green right now. Ella’s is probably blue.
Ella: My favorite color is blue and I think Mackenzie’s favorite color is green.
Favorite Place to Hang Out
Mackenzie: My favorite place to hang out is Downtown Mystic. I think Ella’s is the same, we go there all the time.
Ella: My favorite place to hang out is Downtown Mystic and I think Mackenzie’s is the same.
Mackenzie: Throughout my four years of high school, my favorite class has been Ancient History. Ella’s is English. I asked for a hint and she said it was a class we had together all four years, which is funny because she wasn’t in my sophomore year English class.
Ella: My favorite subject is English and I think Mackenzie’s is a History class, possibly Ancient.
Favorite Pair of Shoes
Mackenzie: My favorite shoes to wear are my high-top converse. Ella’s are the same.
Ella: My favorite shoes are converse and Mackenzie’s favorite shoes are also converse.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Mackenzie: I’m team Edward. Admittedly, I was team Jacob as a kid but I grew up and realized how annoying and horrible of a person he was. Ella better be team Edward or else I’ll be very disappointed.
Ella: I am team Jacob. I think Mackenzie is an Edward girl.
Go-To Coffee Shop Order
Mackenzie: My coffee shop order always changes, but I’ve started getting mochas with oat milk. I think Ella’s is a latte with oat milk.
Ella: Mackenzie likes hot chai tea lattes with whole milk and I like iced dirty chais with oat milk.
Favorite Original Avenger
Mackenzie: My favorite original Avenger is 100% Tony Stark (Iron Man). Ella and I don’t talk about Marvel a lot, but my best guess is Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow).
Ella: I don’t like any of the original Avengers but I do like Spider-Man and Mackenzie likes Iron Man.
Mackenzie: I know she won’t get this, but my favorite animal is the ocean sunfish. I have no idea what hers is, but she has chickens at home, so I’ll guess chickens.
Ella: My favorite animals are cats and Mackenzie likes dogs.
Favorite Papa’s Game on Cool Math Games
Mackenzie: Papa’s freezeria has and always will be my favorite. Hers is either cupcakeria or donuteria, I think.
Ella: My favorite Papa’s game is the donuteria and Mackezie likes either the pizzeria or the spaghetteria because she’s Iitalian.
