Anyways, I asked a girl five questions this morning, and I thought they were good questions. They were questions that I would like to be asked because I felt they hit the heart of me. She thought I was a bit strange and the other girl wouldn't make direct eye contact after I was done, but hey, you can't win 'em all. So I've listed my questions and posting my answers and therefore bring my own tag to fruition.
1) What's your favourite colour?
My favourite colour is blue because there are so many shades that represent so many different things - it's tangible and not all at once. It's the colour of the ocean one day, the colour of the sky another, and sometimes it represents sadness, other moments it's calming. It's a really good multi-tasker.
2) Why do you do what you do? Why are you working on what you want to become?
I've done some neat things, strange things, exhausting things, and irrelevant-to-anything things, but teaching grants me that internal balance that is understood only by those who also have it. There is a great satisfaction in finding something that demands my very best without thwarting who I am. It does not allow me to put myself on the backburner of my abilities. It says "yes you can, now go do it".
3) What do you want me to go away knowing about you?
I want you to know that life is important to me, just as laughing and crying and stomping my feet and giving a hug. I want you to know that I make a good clap and cheer section.
4) What is your biggest fear?
To miss out on who I am because of the fears of others, of taking on that fear, letting it rule my own life. To hesitate at the very moment I am meant to jump.
5) Do you always tell the truth no matter what the cost?
I am more inclined to say that I choose my battles a little more wisely. The older I get I learn that sometimes the truth doesn't change the reality. I will always be honest, but I seem to lack the need to brow-beat from the standpoint of black and white.
Ladies... Bridgette, Kiki, Paige, Fenn, Angel, Jenn, Labousse... would you care for a spin?
I'm pooped tonight. But it's a good exhaustion. Tomorrow's hump day!
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die... Life is no brief candle to me. It's a sort of splendid torch which I've got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
