I ran across this questionnaire/survey thing on a website and the questions are interesting, but you guys...this thing is a doozy.
It's 100 questions. I am going to break this up into many, many parts. And it may take me ten years to finish it. But we'll see what happens.
I'll start with the first ten questions.
Are you young at heart, or an old soul?
First question, and I don't know how to answer it. I am young in the sense that I like Disney, cartoons and coloring. I am also young in the fact that I lead with my heart and emotions and sometimes I wish I still lived with my parents. However, I am going gray and right now I can't wait to go to bed. Not to actually sleep, but just to lay. I guess if I was to go a bit deeper with this question, I don't feel like I am an old soul. I feel like my soul is exactly 32 years old.
What makes someone a best friend?
I am lucky enough to have a few people I consider best friends, both male and female. My female best friends are women who make me laugh, make me think, and are up for anything. They respect my opinions and my right to be a moron sometimes. They listen and give me advice without judging me. My male best friends are ones that give me a different perspective, do nothing with me and have the best time, and are completely honest even though it stings.
What Christmas (or Hanukkah) present do you remember the most?
My all time best Christmas morning was waking up to my She-ra castle.
Tell me about a movie/song/tv show/play/book that has changed your life.
There are so many books that effected me. As a kid, The BabySitters Club and anything by Judy Blume helped me get through adolescence. As an adult, Jennifer Weiner writes books about big girls who can still work it, which I really needed at that time. As corny as it sounds, the Twilight series changed me and made me a little more romantic than I ever thought I was.
Name one physical feature that you like about yourself, and one you dislike.
I know this is conceited, but I really like my face. Now that it's a little thinner, I like my cheekbones, my eyes and my chin line. There are many things I dislike, but the area I hate the most are my armpits. Somehow I can lose 90 pounds and still have fat armpits that make it impossible to wear a tank in public. Should make swimsuit shopping for the Bahamas fun!
Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with?
This may sound bitchy...but no. I have had a lot of great friends, but I suck enough at keeping in touch with the people in my life right now. I believe every relationship has a purpose, and some are meant for memories.
What’s more important in a relationship: physical attraction or emotional connection?
I think it's more important to have a physical attraction if an intimate relationship is what you are gong for. You can be emotionally connected all day long, but if there's no spark then that will make for a long, cold, boring life.
Name a movie that you knew would be terrible just from reading the title.
This is not a good question for me - I am the worst movie picker ever. I should have known that a movie called Les Miserables would make me want to die, but I still went to it.
What holiday do you most look forward to?
I get really excited for all holidays - I really like dressing up, so I usually love Halloween. I love Thanksgiving. 4th of July! My birthday! Jeans Day on Fridays. I get excited for almost every day.
How is the relationship between you and your parents?
I know my parents love me, and I love them for sure. I think they often wonder what I'm up to, or why I do the things I do...but I know in the end they just want me happy, and that's enough for them. And I just want them to enjoy life now that there are no kids in the house, so I hope they do.
