If you’ve ever seen the web-series Squaresville, you’ll know it’s all about making do with what you have. The series is about teenagers growing up in a dull suburb, trying to make their own fun and make the most of a so-so situation. The series is laugh-out-loud funny, and each one of the characters is endearing in their own way.
The series was created by Matt Enlow and stars Mary-Kate Wiles and Kylie Sparks. The series runs exclusively on YouTube, but it doesn’t feel hastily-made or ephemeral, like a lot of the videos YouTube is known for. It’s clear that a lot of hard work and heart have gone into making this show, and that’s a huge part of what makes it so enjoyable to watch. Check out the show here if you’ve never seen it before. If you already know what it’s all about, take this quiz and find out which character you’re most like. Then, enjoy a playlist of songs that reminded me of Zelda, the main character in Squaresville.

Mostly A’s: You’re Zelda. You’re a daydreamer and an idealist. You may not know what you want to do with your life, but you know you’ll think of something amazing. Not only are you a very loyal friend, you’re super-fun: always up for trying something new. You might be stuck in a totally boring place, but you’re making the most of it, in your own zany ways.
Mostly B’s: You’re Percy. Even-keeled and very smart, you’re the easy-going friend. You don’t take sides in arguments, and you’re good at talking over big issues. You know who you are and you have your own idea of “fun”, but you get roped into your friends’ whacky plans more often than you’d like to admit. Even so, you’ll do big things someday.
Mostly C’s: You’re Esther. You’re known for your snarky quips, whether or not people think they’re a good thing. You can be a bit stubborn, but you always come around in the end. You have a tough exterior, but anyone who really gets to know you will quickly see your softer side. Added bonus: your sense of humor never fails to entertain your friends.
Mostly D’s: You’re Shelly. You’re the fashion guru of your group of friends, which is exactly how you like it. You know what you want, and you’re working towards it, but you’re also enjoying your life right now. Keep on keepin’ on, Shelly, but remember to give some new things a chance, too.
