I've had these in my inbox forever. The the first set is from Cherish, and the second from Melissa. There's nothing like a Monday to take care of things I've been procrastinating on!
1.If you could be stuck at any age for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? As of right now, I would say 25. Not because 25 was a great year for me, but because I like the sound of being 25. I wouldn't go back to my teenager years if you paid me. I can't handle the angst and the drama anymore! When I was younger, I always thought 28 would be a great age. I figured that at 28 is when you really have your shit together, but I'm getting really close to 28 (August!), and I'm not sure I agree with that anymore. Lol. Now I'm looking forward to 32. It has a nice ring to it. It still sounds young, but with more respect than the 20s bring. Basically, if I have to pick a past age I pick 25. If I can pick a future age, I say 32.
2. What country would you never want to live in?
I can't imagine living anywhere except Texas (I know it's not a country but whatev...it used to be)! I grew up an Army brat, and this is the first place I've ever felt settled. Plus, now that Barack Obama is President why would I ever leave the great U.S. of A?
3. What would be the least amount of money you would have to win before you gave some away? Well, I've been trying to get more involved in donating to charity this year. The plan is to donate something every month. In January, it was for my city's local food bank. I'm very interested in Astarte's find, Heifer International. I'm hoping to bounce around a little until I find the charity that speaks to me the most. With that said, if I'm trying to give more with what I have now, then I can see myself giving some away no matter how much I won. Obviously, it would be proportionally. I'd give more if I won a million than if I won $10,000.
4. If you could know for sure when and how you were going to die, would you want to find out? Um. No. Not even a little tiny hint. I think that if I knew, I would constantly dwell on how much time I had left rather than just living my life the best way possible.
5. If you could spend a day with someone who has died, who would it be?
I just don't know how I feel about this question. Part of me doesn't want to answer it, but that would be against the rules. I'm nothing if not a rule follower. Besides older relatives, Kaeli's dad is the only person I've known that has passed away. Frankly, I'm not sure I'd want to spend the day with him. It would be nice for Kaeli to have that experience since she was so young, but for me, I think it would just bring back the pain and sadness that I've worked to get over. I think I would rather spend the day with someone famous that has passed. Or solve a mystery surrounding a disappearance.
On to round 2
1. If there was anyone you could meet in person, who would it be and why?
Right now, I think it would be President Obama. I'm so impressed with him, and I have so much respect for him.
2. If you could find out when you would die, or how would you die, which one would you pick? How about neither? If absolutely pressed for an answer, I would choose to know how I was going to die rather than when.
3. And why? Mostly because I really don't want to know when!
4. Is there something that lingers in your head that you did that was embarrassing or just something you regretted you can't seem to get out of your head for good?
I have this amazing ability to forget anything that makes me uncomfortable to remember. I know there are things that I should be embarrassed by, but, for my own self preservation, I have blocked them all out.
5. What is the one thing you could not live without? (materialistic)
Only 1?! Did you not catch the "Material Girl" part of my blog title? How can I choose between my iPhone, my car, and my flat iron? It's just impossible. I need all three to live.
Whew. I'm so glad to have these answered. It's been lingering over me for weeks. Hope y'all enjoy my answers. Feel free to answer the same questions yourselves. I love Q&A blog posts!!
