So deeeep...

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    Mentally, I'd be close to 40. This is due to earlier events that prematurely aged me and forever put me in a pessimistic mood.
    Physically, I'd think I show my age. 33. Although people who have just met me, would say I'm in my late 20's. 
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    Never trying. Always telling my students (sometimes screaming), don't say CANNOT. You never try, how do you know you CANNOT?!
  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?
    Because life is so short for everybody. We are rules by capitalism and things we like generally aren't free. It's not we like things that we can't have or can't do. We may find that when we do obtain or get to do it, the feeling changes.
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    I would have said more. I try to be the silent one and have more action, but failed.
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    Less war (take note, I didn't say none), less children being abused.
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    Settling. Why..because this is the means to an end for me
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    So I have < 7 years to live. If money were not an issue, I'd have a house in the country with open spaces. I'd still train and eat healthy just to feel good (no sense in suffering before I go), I'd read, draw, write a book, spend time with my animals (actually I'm living my dream now, except the house in country part)
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    100% I'm not blaming anyone.
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    Doing the right things
  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?
    Try to justify my friend but will not let them know that that's my friend.
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    A new born child won't understand my words, hello...
    But I'd say, You are loved. Make a difference in this world.
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    Nothing. I may think I'm unique, but I'm not.
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    Because the level of our expectations, our upbringing is different.
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back?
    Have a kid. 
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    I don't
  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
  22. Why are you, you?
    Too long to write here. Another post maybe, but I'm not that narcissistic 
  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    No. Because I don't even bother to keep in touch and I've betrayed some.
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    2nd one
  25. What are you most grateful for?
    Health & God
  26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

    Coming back to a house full of lit lanterns by my grandpa
  31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    When I was with him
  32. If not now, then when?
  33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

  34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    Yes, with both.
  35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
  36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    Good & evil is what majority says it is.
  37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    Eventually. But I'd prepare by setting up my business first.
  38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    Less work
  39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    Oh yeah
  40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly
    believed in?
  41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    I'd call them and cover all bases.
  42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
  43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    Alive is just breathing, functioning. Living means you are happy, realizing your true potential, making a difference.

    Nope, bad memory
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
    Mixture of both
