Thank you so much for your responses. After reading everyones thoughts, mainly the similarities and differences, I started to think if you had resources to research a particular topic, what would that research topic be?
As many researchers know, they have limitations to what and how they can conduct their research. Put yourself in a researchers position and assume that you have no limitations such as funding for your research.

Jean Augustine wants to know from girls the following: If there were a
building/structure in Toronto for young girls, what would YOUwant to see
in it and what would they want to use it for.
Please let us know in a few words or more. Your thoughts can have a bigger impact than you think.
Hope to hear from you soon.

I'm passionate about music. If I could teach a university course, I could probably lecture for a full year on mid-00's pop punk and Canadian indie rock. I also play violin but more occasionally than I used to. I go to concerts as often as possible and my dearest wish is to attend the Polaris Prize Gala.
I'm passionate about literature. I try to read 100 books a year, and although I haven't done it yet, I'm always scoping for something good to read and giving recommendations. On the flipside, I also write prose and poetry over here.
I'm a political science major and that's because I'm also passionate about how things work, how you can make change, how to deal with the complex and multilayered issues that societies face and how to plan for the future. Because I like history and theory and language. I'm most passionate about foreign affairs and diplomacy.
I'm passionate about the idea that you have to feel a drive for something. That idea that human beings are profoundly passionate and any person should have a list of things they are passionate about that can't be confined to just mere curiosity but drives you to stay up late and work. I'm also passionate about the city, social media, sustainable living, sleeping in, creative spaces, Androids, scarves and the news.

Then I have this other obsession, my second love, which is organizing. I utterly detest chaos! A lot of people appear to be irritated with my fixation to arrange things and create order. The truth is I simply cannot help it.
