50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind Pt. 1

In this two-part series you'll get to know quite a bit about me... so if you find me intriguing or interesting - read on!

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?
Hmm either 21 because it was such a fun age ... or maybe a little bit older (25-26) to be settled in life a bit more.

Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying. I've always pushed myself to try things even if they might not work out as well as I'd hoped.
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 haven't a clue. I think people get trapped into the idea of what they're "supposed' to do instead of what they want to do.
When it's all said and done, will you have said more than you've done?
I speak a lot so probably haha. But I do try my best to be a "doer."

What is the one thing you'd most like to change about the world?
The struggle for power, which I believe leads to the inequality and materialization in this world. I believe if we were all powerless or as powerful as one another or, best of all, if power didn't even matter, there'd be much more love and much less hate in the world.
If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I plan to do what I believe in.

If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I would get married to Timmy shortly, have babies soon after that and probably pick a less time-consuming and stressful prospective career.

To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
Quite a bit. Although my course thus far has been inspired by loved ones and friends i.e. where I went to college, going to law school. Ultimately, I make my own choices but others have definitely had some input.
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Doing the right things. I can sleep easier at night that way.
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 stand up for my friend. I'm not fond of sitting there and letting people attack someone I care about. I know friends have done the same for me and I really appreciate it, as well. 

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
I don't think I'm very knowledgeable about the whole life process yet - lol - but I would tell the baby to live a life that would make him/her happiest.

Would you break the law to save a loved one?
I plead the fifth.
Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
My mom in her (amateur) paintings. She's definitely more creative than I am.
What's something you know you do differently than most people?
React to happy moments. I cry! I don't kid when I say I'm overemotional, people!
How come the things that make you happy don't make everyone happy?
Because we're not all the same and we don't all want the same exact things out of life i.e. sure, we might all want happiness but happiness has very different forms/meanings for everyone

What is one thing you have not done that you really want to do and what's holding you back?
I want to take time off after school and live in Hawaii with the man I love. Responsibility and planning for the future is holding me back.
Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
Probably  resentment towards people in my past or regret over how I've handled situations.

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
State - NJ to be close to family or Fla to stay on East Coast but be in warmer weather.
Country - Spain because I loved living there

Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
Only the button to close the doors if I'm in a rush lol

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
The latter. I worry too much as it is.

Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
The latter because I've always had a harder time accepting it.

What are you most grateful for?
The love in my life from T, my family and my closest friends.Whenever I'm having a bad day or moment, I stop and think about how blessed I am to have the wonderful people I have in my life and it instantly makes me feel better.

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
Ooh this is a toughie. I can't even choose. I have too much I still want to happen - i.e. babies that I can't imagine not being able to making new ones. But then, I have loved ones who've died that I always want to remember. So I can't choose. I stink at this question :\

Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
I am sorta confused by this question. But I suppose yes, especially when your gut instinct is so very strong.

Has your greatest fear ever come true?
No, thank God.

Thanks for reading! Tomorrow will be Part 2 :)
