Other notes for this Goal:
28. Has your greatest fear ever come true?
A part of me thinks I’m living my greatest fear. Growing up, I always pictured myself going to university and getting the big arse career that will pay me loads of money. Sadly, that’s not exactly the case right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful that I have a job to keep me until I figure out what I want to do but it’s a dead end job that means I won’t go anywhere.
27. Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
How can you challenge the truth? The very meaning of the truth is that something is fact, is real. The only way the truth can be challenged is with a lie but that’s not what challenging the truth means, is it?
26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
I’d rather not be able to make new ones seeing as I have no clue how losing all of my old memories and being able to live would work. How would I remember the people I love if they disappeared?
25. What are you most grateful for?
My twin sister, no questions asked. If it wasn’t for her, I definitely wouldn’t be alive today. She has saved me from myself practically all of my life and will hopefully for the rest of my days.
24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
Definitely the idea of losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you. You have to see them all the time, a reminder that they’re not there any more, that things are not the same.
23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
I believe I have, at least with my best friend. I don’t have many friends, no one true at least. I’d like to think I’m honest, caring, have good advice and a good sense of humor… the usual you look for I guess.
22. Why are you, you?
Because I want to be me. Why would I want to be anyone but me? I may hate myself at the end of the day sometimes but I know that I don’t fake myself to make other people happy or to gain friends that don’t even respect or love me.
21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
Definitely a joyful simpleton. Who would want to spend their life worrying all the time?
20. Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
I don’t push elevator buttons twice but I do other things which could be related to the question. For example, if my computer is playing up I’ll click on some short cuts a million times before deciding that it’s gone fishy. Nope, I honestly believe it doesn’t make things go faster but I’m too impatient to care.
19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
Definitely America. I guess there is so much reason for me to go there, a chance of a life with someone I truly care about. If I could move there, even if it’s just for a month, I will finally find out if the this waiting and planning is actually worth something. To see if meeting the guy I love will mean the happiness that the both of us hope it will.
18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
Yes, there are a couple of things that I desperately need to let go of but never will. Some things are just too painful to think about, let alone face head on. Maybe in time I’ll get over them but it doesn’t look like I will any time soon.
17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
I want to get a tattoo of The Deathly Hallows on my hand but I just can’t seem to find time to make the appointment. I guess fear, time and money are the things holding me back though I shall definitely get it done soon!
16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
Because people are crazy?
15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
I have no freaking idea. Everything that I know I do is not different from most people. All you have to do is look online and you’ll see a tonne of people who like and do the same thing as me. I’ve accepted that I’m not that unique a long time ago.
14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
I have no clue, there is a thin line between both though.
13. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
Definitely. I would murder someone if that person dangered someone I loved, no question about it.
12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
My piece of advice would be to not over-think things too much. Just go with the flow because dwelling on the things that you can't control is a big waste of time.
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?
Honestly? I’d probably openly say that she’s a close friend. They could be bitching away and I’d turn around and say something along the lines of ‘are you talking about ____? Oh my God, I love her. She’s the best’ just so things would get awkward…
10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
I think I’m more worried about doing things right. I’d love to do the right thing but the line between right and wrong is so blurred that I never truly know what side I’m standing on.
9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
I believe I’ve probably controlled my life about 75 percent since birth but I’m only twenty years old meaning that percent will increase a whole lot more now. To say that I’ve controlled my life 100 percent is crazy because my mother made a lot of my decision when I was younger.
8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I probably wouldn’t care so much about my person morals. I’d be more open and less pessimistic about the word and I would have grown up a lot faster.
7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I’m settling for what I’m doing, sadly.
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
I would definitely change the prejudice and discrimination that everyone goes through at least once in their lifetime. Age, race, sexual-orientation, capability, weight; everyone deserves that right to be happy no matter what.
4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
If the rest of my life goes like what it has so far then I will probably say more than I’ve done. If I look at all the things that I’ve planned to do, I’ll probably achieve around 20% of it, if not less.
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?
Simply because we have to. We have to work and go to school because that's what society teaches and all that jazz. If we didn't have to do the things we hated then how would we really do the things we liked? We need money to survive.
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying. Nothing is worse than being filled with the regret it leaves you. Failing is pretty easy to live with.
