I thought I would do one of my 101 in 1001 today. I will be doing #33, "50 questions that will free your mind." Here goes...
1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Failing, because atleast you CAN say you tried. Not everyone is going to be great at everything.
3.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?
Wow, good question, and I have no idea how to answer it.
4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
Third world countries. Starving/suffering.
6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
Setteling for what I am doing :(
8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I don't think a lot of people would change the way they live, because if we never knew anything different, we wouldn't know that we had less time to do things.
9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Maybe a little of both.
11.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?
Ask if we can change the subject.
12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
Live your life the way you want to, and take pictures of EVERYTHING!!
13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
Well I know I don't let a lot of things bother me that would bother most people. (Ex: Getting made fun of/ negative comments)
16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
Everyone finds happiness in different things. Everyone is unique in their own way.
17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
Moved to Florida. My boyfriend doesn't want to.
18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
Florida, because I hate any type of winter. My sister lives there, and my mom will be moving there.
20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Yes, most of the time.
