I'm way too drunk to transcribe right now. But I'm nothing if not stupid, so here we go.

Hello Hubski, this is Chelsea, arguewithatree, it is Monday the 23rd 3:30 p.m. Figured I'd bang this out before I head out to class. I did really good 'newgreen'. I really wanted to peek at the questions before I got this started, but I waited. I waited. And I'm going to look at them now for the first time.

So #1. What is something you are proud of and why?

I think I'm most proud of how far I've come. I think I've done a lot of growing and changing even just in the last year or two but definitely in the last five or so years. So I don't think that if you had asked me at 16 if I thought I'd be in DC studying security at a high level or, you know, comfortable in my ability to speak Arabic or analyze complex problems, you know, I don't even know what I would have said. I think 16 year old me would be pretty impressed with 23 year old me.

#2. How would you describe hubski to someone?

I think I would if I was trying to get someone to try out hubski, I would recommend that they come on a Wednesday and come to Pubski to sort of get the greatest sense of what hubski really is about. It's about a community of people who may or may not have never met eachother and may never meet eachother who come from all over the world who come and discuss their lives and their interests and the world around them in a sort of faceless but not unfriendly environment. There's no pressure to produce attention grabbing content. You share things because they interest you and may catch someone else's eye and get followers. It's an actual community.

#3. What is your message?

I was kind of hoping that I would get this question. And I was thinking about it, and I know you didn't want me to think about my answers but I was thinking about this one. And I think a message that's been really comforting to me especially as a high anxiety person, over achiever, very type-a is the message that you won't ever be the first to do something and you certainly not the last to do something. I think that's very comforting to know that there are people who have gone before you and know what it's like to be at your point in space-time and that you are really not alone in what it is that you're experiencing and that you're not the last. You will be able to look and see when others have reached that point that you're at and that it's your duty to help work them through that in sort of a pay it forward pay it backward type message.

Yeah, I think that's all I have for you. I can't wait to see what people think and what kind of music you put to this. So thanks for reaching out to me to do this and participate in this awesome project.

(And then, I shit you not, a bunch of cats meow over a harpsichord).
