I don't need a parachute
Honestly! I've ended the school term for a week. Then I log on, because my boredom delayed itself for a week. Anyway, to make up for the lack of activity... I threw down a few props on the new Sky-Hobo-ticus that Iresta threw up (from her virtual intelligent mouth).
Okay: I didn't intend to pick a grungy outfit... nor did I foresee myself pairing it with fishnets, socks and heels. I was looking for a flowery dress, and this caught my eye... so I bought it instead! Unfortunately for me Shoetopia was packed to the brim and I couldn't step in to get some appropriate shoes.
I'm putting these two shots together mainly because I'm experimenting with angles a lot this time round. With the first emphasizing on the face and the second emphasizing on the shoes (Lucky Iresta nicked a pair and I'm jealous. Her shoe rack even has security passwords now because of me. And yes, she is nude. On the bunky bed. I'm afraid to go near it now.)
Also, for the first time... I've decided to participate in the Blog Memes challenge by Strawberry Singh, as per suggested by the head of the house.
So, here goes!
Regardless of your current number, how old do you actually feel? - I feel... my age, I suppose. It's hard for me to feel any older, because I'm still growing mentally and emotionally, but it's also hard for me to feel younger, because I've already grown mentally and emotionally. And once you've developed a body, you can't really un-develop it, can you?
Which is worse, failing or never trying? – Never trying. Not saying that failing's not bad, but when you try, at least you have a chance of making it there. There's a saying in Chinese "失败乃是成功之母", which basically means that success is always preceded by failure. Not trying eliminates both success and failure.
If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?– Darn. I'd probably quit school immediately and pack my bags and travel around the world with S.
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? – I'd try to do the right things while doing the things right, in other words, doing the right things right. Which would mean, yes, I'm often a very worried and worrisome person.
Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? – I'd be a worried genius, unfortunately. Joyful simpleness is often very appealing, but I like to be challenged just a little, once in a while.
Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? – Quite indefinitely, yes and no. S and I share a mutuality that go way beyond any sort of friendship I've ever had. We think of each other's well-being and have each other's interests at heart. Like once I went visiting S, and I figured he'd be hungry since he went out without breakfast, and so I made sandwiches and brought them over. Likewise, he saw a couple of plushies on sale, and he thought I'd like them (which I did!) and bought an extra one for me. On the other hand, with others, it's quite different. For some people, I want them as a friend close enough to talk to, yet, assuming that they wouldn't reciprocate, I never got closer.
Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? – Anything that upset me from 5 years ago doesn't really bother me anymore, really! I do remember them, but honestly, I've grown a lot since then. I've gotten over it to the point it doesn't hurt to talk about it, and it's honestly very silly.
At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? – When the year-long project ended! Because that signified the end of the school term, mostly. We celebrated like a bunch of insane squirrels - we had dinner together twice and went to the beach and went to the mall and had a picnic and danced about.
If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? – Maybe! And then start a business (another job!?) but probably something that I'm interested in. Like I said, I like a challenge every now and then. Having or earning money isn't really the point. It's really the process of doing something, and getting it with your own hands.
If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? – Everybody that I care about the deepest. I'd gather them all at one spot, exchange hugs and kisses and have a mass
suicide er, prayer session.
What do you feel is the difference between being alive and truly living? – Being alive is... well, simply having your heart beating, the blood flowing through your veins and your mind active and capable. That's being alive. Truly living is when you feel the meaning of it all and feel happy because it's meaningful.
If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? – Simply because mistakes aren't always very forgiving. People aren't always very forgiving. But you've always got to make them once in a while! Small ones. Just so no one can poke at you.
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? – I'd cut my hair... and let my wild curls grow out! I've always joked that if I let my curls grow out without straightening it, I'd have an Afro. I'd sport an Afro... if nobody said a thing!
If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? – You're special. In your own way, but don't do terrible things.
