How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 26 forever.  Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying but that doesn't mean I'm not scared to fail.  If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? I think most people are scared of failure or judgement from those that matter to them.  When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? I hope not but it seems to be going that way.  What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? I would change people. I would want them to all aspire to be a great person.  If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Creating things.  Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? I'm totally settling.  If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? Fuck school have fun! To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? Not so much. I've been very worried about how my family would feel about my life.  Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Doing the right things.  You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? I would explain why they were wrong.  If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Don't define your life by other peoples lives. Follow your heart.  Would you break the law to save a loved one? Yes Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? No What’s something you know you do differently than most people? brush my teeth. That's why I never want anyone to see me do it! How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Bc other people don't know what cool is.  What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Be a bartender. I feel like I would not be able to find a job without training, and I can't afford training bc I don't make enough.  Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Yes. A lot of resentment.  If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Australia. I met a few australians and they are all really cool people. It just seems like such a lovely life.  Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? No. No.  Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? Genius! Why are you, you? Decisions I've made and my past.  Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Yes. More than my friends have been.  Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? Losing touch to a friend that lives nearby.  What are you most grateful for? I don't think I'm grateful for anything.  Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? I'd rather lose all my old memories.  Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? No.  Has your greatest fear ever come true? No.  Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now? Yes. Yes. I should have walked away then and never looked back.  What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special? Squirting skittles. Bc I was being bad and having fun.  At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? When I finished the first engagement party invite. :/ If not now, then when? At this rate never.  If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? My source of income. A chance for Rob to have his surgery.  Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? No Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? people are crazy and take things to extremes Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? nothing is black and white If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? fuck yes.  Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? More work I actually enjoy doing.  Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? Yes When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? never.  If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? My cats Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? No a decade is a long time.  What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Alive is just functioning on a biological level. Living is doing what makes your heart sing. Trying new things etc.  When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? Everyday If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? we don't fear failure. Just what comes with it.  What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Everyday  When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? daily What do you love?   being appreciated Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? No In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? Nope.  Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? I'm not sure. I'd like to say I'm making them but I think I consider other people's thoughts too much for it to be all me deciding.

Note added to goal Go camping
We need a tent, a blow up mattress and pretty much every other camping supply. We are going this summer. Even if it is only pansy camping. I figure I'll make a man out of him and have him camping for real in a year.
Rounding up would be $9,000. It is going to take a long time...
