  1. I would figure out how I got there and then figure out how to get out and find food and water to survive. And maybe look for help if at all possible.

  2. I'd look for a weapon- because I'm the paranoid type anyway, and waking up with no memory except my name tells me someone has been MESSING WITH ME. ;)

    thx for the contest!

  3. I would definitely start by asking questions. I would want to know everything about where I was, who I was, what's going on, who are the people around me, etc. etc. Then, I would try not to get myself killed, because if I woke up in a box with no memories, I would definitely think that something was up and I should be worried. Finally, I would spend any extra time I had trying to remember who I was.

  4. first i do nothing just sit waiting for my mind to react for i don't know maybe 5 minutes, then i'll check my pockets for some clue to see if i have something that tells me who am I? what am i doing there? or if i'm the only one there?

  5. That's a really good question! I feel like imagining that I didn't know who I was makes this question even more difficult… my sense of self and my past experiences influences everything I do.

    So, with that in mind, I think I would be struck with a need to find out who I was and what I was doing there. I would probably stay exactly where I was for awhile urging my memories to come back. And then I would look at my self for any clues I could gain. Look at my hands. My clothes. Is my hair long or short? Am I dirty? Am I hungry? I would try to start piecing it all together… And then I would start to inspect the box.

  6. I would instinctively run around the box and look for any other people or things to help me figure our what's going on. And then I would feel even worse because I should have just stayed where I was and moved about more quietly/stealthily in case there were dangers about (instead of freaking out).

  7. I would most likely scream. Then I would try as hard as I could to remember, anything. Then I would notice that I was in a box, and suddenly become clausterphobic, even though I have never been before (but I wouldn't know that, would I?) and try to beat myself out.

    And then, I admit it, I would most likely cry. As soon as I heard the box stop, I would try to stop, though.

    But most of all, I would be entirely freaked out.

  8. I would say “Bloody he**” and then try to figure out where I am, how I got there, and why I'm there. All *hopefully* without panicking!

  9. If I wake up in a box.. first of all, that's weird in itself… I would find the first person around and ask them if they know who I am and hope that it's someone I can trust. If not, then bye bye to me, lol.

  10. First, I would climb out of the box. Second, I'd pat myself down, looking for notes or hints if I had any pockets. Third, I'd try to figure out where the box came from and then, if all else had been unproductive, I'd go exploring to see if there was someone nearby to ask for help.

    Thanks!

  11. Well, I think before moving around and discovering where I am, I would just sit there very numbly trying to figure out what has happened to me and why. I'm very based on logic and what my mind tells me, so first I'd try to find a solution for my situation theoretically. I guess it would take me quite some time until I'd realize it wouldn't work out that way.

  12. My first thought is, that if I woke up in a box at all I'd probably scream my head off until I went hoarse. My question back is this, if you lost your memory, then how would you know you even lost it? I mean, how can you realize that part of your memory is gone if you don't remember it?

    jasmyn9[at]hotmail[dot]com

  13. Well, first I would probably say “Hello?” even though, I'm assuming, no one is there. I would then scream for help. After screaming myself hoarse, I would probably sit in stunned silence a while, then break down, curl up into a ball, and cry. Then I would probably try to find a way out. Honestly, if there wasn't a way out, I'm not sure what I would do next.

  14. First I would get out of the box. Then I would look around and look at the box, for any sort of clue of what to do next. I would also check my pockets for any sort of personal effects, hoping for a cellphone or something useful. Then I would walk in one direction until I couldn't or I found a person. *nods* (I would also start freaking out at some point in this list)

  15. I would scream my bloody head off!! Are you kidding? I can already feel the panic setting in just talking about it!!
    Awesome giveaway :D

  16. I think I would carefully consider my surroundings and check for any hints to my identification before I left my box >.> edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

  17. I would start rediscovering myself and hopefully there are other people also in this place that I woke up in so I could find out if they knew me or if they were in the same boat as me : )
    e(dot)baker219(at)gmail(dot)com

  18. Well, first I'd scream. Not out loud of course but silently in my head. I would chant “Where am I? Who am I? How'd I get here?” a few times or so. Then I would accept my situation and find out as much as I can! lol…

    Oooo I really really really need to read Death Cure to find out what happens! *crossing fingers to win* Thanks Hafsah for the chance!

  19. LOL Well the first thing I would do if I woke up in a box with no memory of anything except your name would be get out of the box :) then check my pockets for a phone, find internet access and look me up Thanks for the fun, I would absolutely love to read the Maze Runner trilogy and really would love to win copies :)

  20. I would SCREAM! to get the tension and fear out….they try to figure out what where when and WHY? out.
    Great giveaway
    thanks for the chance

  21. umm. I would freak out. I'm not sure when our if the calm would take over but hoping it did eventually, I would go somewhere remote to be safe and try to figure things out. Make sure I stay away from everyone to keep myself from danger. This would indeed be a very scary situation, so here's to hoping that does not ever happen! :))

    Thanks for this awesome opportunity.

  22. With no memory, I wouldn't be like Thomas (though I haven't finished the book) because there's no way I'd run into that maze after what happened to Ben…I would probably be walking the perimeter, scouring every corner trying to figure out how this entire place is keeping me contained. All the while I'll probably be ignoring everyone trying to talk to me.

    But that's just me :)

  23. If I found myself in a box with only the memory of my name, I would probably attack the first person I would see. I admit, it is very stupid. But I would most likely be an idiot because I am one and you cannot lose idioticness with amnesia. Then people would shun me. I will soon die a tragic antisocial life. This is the amazing story of my short amnesiac life.

    Thank you for this giveaway

  24. I'm pretty sure the first thing I would do would be freak out and/or start crying. Yeah. That sounds about right. :P After I calmed down, I'd go looking for other people. Maybe they'd know who I am or, at the very least, could tell me WHERE I am. Right? Right!

  25. If I woke up without knowing anything besides my name, I might freak out. That's probably the first thing I'd do. The next, logical, thing I would do is walk around and ask if anyone knew me. I'd want to know my story.
