30 Icebreakers That Will Definitely Start A Conversation

I've been on so many bad dates at this point and have had so many awkward interactions with people that I've become a pro at breaking awkward silences. A great way to do that, while also getting to know the person is icebreakers. I am someone who sort of loves icebreakers, and fun ones too, not the typical "what's your major?" Those are kind of repetitive and not fun.

1. If you could live anywhere in the world outside of the United States, where would you live and why?

2. Would you rather only eat your favorite meal for the rest of your life or never be able to eat your favorite meal again? What's your favorite meal?

3. If you could eat dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?

4. If you could go on any reality tv show, which one would it be?

15. What is something that you think you're good at?

16. Where is your favorite spot to go to in the entire world? 

17. What is your guilty pleasure?

18. If you were stuck alone on a deserted island for the rest of your life with all of your needs filled (like food, water, coffee, and shelter,) but you could only bring two items what would they be? Why?

19. Aliens have attacked the earth! You could only save one more person other than your parents and siblings, who would you save?

20. What is something you wish you could eliminate forever?

21. What is your favorite video game?

22. If you could trade lives with anyone dead or alive for a day, who would it be?

23. You have the ability to solve on world problem entirely right now, what would it be?

24. If you had a million dollars what would you do with it? Would you spend it, save it, donate it?

25. Who is your favorite artist right now?

26. Who is your favorite couple to ship right now, fictional or non-fictional?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
