If you’re here looking for my answers to the Community Meme 2011, head over to Flavor Internationale where I posted my answers. I did it late because I had things to deal with on the weekend. If not, you can still check it out, but read this post too!
You already know I LOVE answering interesting questions. I stole these from Sunday Stealing. No, I don’t feel bad about it.
26) Are you happy with the person you’ve become?
YES! It took me a while to get here, but I’m here. And loving it. Thankful for the getting-away-from-the-family experience. I really needed it to come into my own. I was too busy being who people thought I was and/or who people thought I should be to ever really get to know me. Isn’t that crazy?! I had to go two countries north to have enough space to grow.
27) What’s a sound you hate; sound you love?
I hate the sound of pencils on paper, cardboard scraping cardboard… That type of thing. I love the sound of the ocean.
28) What’s your biggest “what if”?
Hmmm… What if I never went off to school?! My gooossshhh. TRAGIC! Seriously. Oh, wait. What if I never took a chance, never opened up, never siezed an opportunity? I’d have missed out on education, amazing experiences, perfect love… Oh, man. WHAT IF?!
29) Do you believe in ghosts?
I believe in spirits. Scary creeping things in white? No.
30) How about aliens?
I believe in the possibility of the existence of aliens. I also believe that I am part alien. And that’s okay.
31) What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
To allow myself to be open.
32) What’s the worst place you have ever been to?
A place called “Alone.” People say it’s okay to be alone… Just not lonely. And that there is a difference. Let me tell you… The human condition… It is such that it requires that we do not live unto, into, or by ourselves. That’s just the way that it is. And if you are ALONE… With no one else around, no one to talk to, no one to lean on, no one to laugh with… Darlin’, you are LONELY. Maybe not for a day or a week, but you stay in that situation for an extended period of time, and BELIEVE me… You will intimately know LONELY.
And I am NOT talking about boyfriend/girlfriend-boyfriend/girlfriend relationships. I’m speaking in a broad sense.
33) Can insanity bring on more creativity?
Ever watched Pollack? Hahaha. If you did, you’d know that the answer is YES. Now, does it ALWAYS bring on more creativity? NO.
34) Most attractive actor of your opposite gender?
I’m not good with actors’ names. And I’m not good at recalling people with any particular quality. Good looks, nice hair, best speaking voice… Nothing like that. Not on demand. So I’m stumped.
35) To you, what is the meaning of life?
You can find the meaning of “life” in any dictionary. What is to be questioned is the PURPOSE of life.
As far as a definition goes, maybe life is just the time between birth and death. Maybe it’s the word that describes a way of living. Maybe it’s characterized by abilities to breathe, move, respond, reproduce, etc. *shrugs* So many possible definitions. In my opinion, just breathing isn’t living. It’s not enough. So by that, life can’t just be breath. Right?
36) Define “Art”.
Open to interpretation. A name given to the innumerable ways of representing people, places, things, and ideas. A way of sending a particular message. The transfer of a dream, vision, and/or feeling to a tangible shared piece. The act of birthing the intangible into a 3D world.
37) Do you believe in luck?
Probably. By another name. Or term. I believe in the power of the universe. I believe in the cycle. In reaping what is sown. Even so, I believe in chance. And possiblity. I believe in cause and effect. And choice.
38) In your opinion, what makes a great relationship?
Great people, for starters. Honesty, trust, loyalty, and friendship work together to make a great foundation. Everything else is just aesthetic. Depends on the taste of the people in the relationship.
39) What’s a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?
Ummm… This is another one of those things that I can’t think of on the spot. I have to hear the song to know. Hella Good by No Doubt is playing right now. This makes me feel good. 🙂
40) Where were you yesterday?
Yesterdaaayyy… Spent the first part of the day at home with Babe. The afternoon and early evening were spent at the hospital with my mum. Then back home to Babe.
41) What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had?
Horrid infection that almost ate away my entire ear. Sexy.
42) Do you have any obsessions right now?
The idea of writing. I have to say “the idea” of it because I haven’t been doing enough of it. I just think about it a lot. Fantastize about it. I WANNA do it. It’s just the tiiiiime. I have great space to do it in. I just need life to chiiillllll for a minute.
43) What’s up?
I’m at work. Printing the last of over 400 envelopes. I’ll be spending the afternoon (and probably part of tomorrow) folding letters and stuffing the envelopes. Babe is here too. Working away. Our lunch order didn’t get placed in time, so we’re gonna run out a little earlier and grab food.
I just called my aunt (my dad’s aunt) to see what’s up. She said my uncle (my mother’s twin brother) called to say he’s taking her there (from the hospital) at 2pm. WOOHOO! She’s getting out of there! A part of me is a bit afraid. I don’t know how it’s gonna go. My aunt is great, and she’ll make sure mum eats on time and everything, but she’s over 70. She can’t hold my mother’s body weight up. I don’t know how she’s going to get to and from the bathroom. She’s still only making about 15 (tiny) steps at a time, and in about 3 minutes. Maybe we’ll have to buy a commode for her.
I don’t know. I don’t wanna stress. I just want things to be okay. *breathes*
44) Ever had a rumor spread about you?
45) Do you believe in real magic?
No. But I DO believe in FAKE magic. What the hell kinda question… LOL.
46) Do you ever hold grudges against people who have done you wrong?
I have, yes. I don’t any more. I’ve learned that it’s harder on me than it is on them. I’d rather free them if it means that I can free myself. I don’t wanna go around carrying unnecessary baggage/burdens. Let it go, let it go, let it go. Nothing is so serious that I have to take it around with me.
47) What’s your favorite (non-pet) animal?
48) What is your secret weapon to get people to like you?
I don’t have one. This is likely because I don’t care. 🙂
49) Where is your best friend?
Right here. 🙂
50) What do you think is Satan’s last name?
