1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

I go to bed between 10 and 11 on weeknights, to work towards getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I love hanging out with my family and friends, staying in and watching movies or playing games. I worry too much about anything and everything. How old am I? I am a little old betty who sits around with friends making old lady sex jokes and cross stitching. I am practically sixty, if not older.

2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?

What is worse than never trying, that’s the real question. I would rather fail at what I love most than to be too scared to even try. I love to write so I do it and I put my stuff on the internet and out into the world to get people involved. Sometimes people hate it and they tell me, but sometimes I make someone’s day better because they were able to leave behind the real world and live in my fantasy one.

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?

The truly lucky people are the ones who figure out how to make what they love work towards getting to do that more. But, for the majority of people, they do the things they don’t like to bankroll the things they love. And some people do the things they don’t like so that they don’t have time to do the things they do like because they are too scared to have fun. I would love to be the first person, will be okay with being the second, but will never be the third.

4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

I think if I continue on the path I’m on in this life, it would be much easier to say more than do more. It is easier to just talk, it does not take courage to just speak. But, I’m not content with just saying what I want to do. I want to act. I want to be some old lady and look back on life and think “wow, how did I manage to do all of that?” I have dreams that I would rather live out then plan out.

5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

I think that there are a plethora of things that could be changed about the world. Watch a beauty pageant and they will give you the reasons: world peace, world hunger, pollution, etc. The thing that really pops into my mind today is “attitude”. Just think what could be changed it people dialed back their false sense of entitlement? Stopped being lazy and expected other people to do for them? To stop and think about how your actions might affect other people? Perhaps how the world is now is the only way it can work with all the different minds populating it, but perhaps if people took a minute to think about how they interact, they could find a way to do it better and maybe the world would positively reflect that change in attitude.
