50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind, Pt. 3

Since I had giveaways going all last week, I skipped out on posting my answers to the next set of 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. 

I'm back this week though! I'm determined to get through these.

If you want to check out my previous questions, you can by going to Part One and Part Two.

21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
I don't at all consider myself a genius, but I am intelligent and I carry enough worry for me and 100 other people. I wish I could be more joyful and simple sometimes though. Maybe I could be a joyful genius?!

22. Why are you, you?
Because of my upbringing. I firmly believe that the ones who raise us and the ones we grow up with mold us into the person we eventually become as adults. For instance, if I had a different set of parents or different friends in school, I may not have the same qualities/attributes that I do today.

23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
For the most part, yes. I am a good listener, and I give advice when it is needed and wanted. I'd do anything to help out a friend, especially if they would do the same for me in return. I could however work on returning calls/texts in a timely manner. I'm horrible at keeping in touch with people, and it's cost me a few friendships over the years. I hate drifting away from people, but unfortunately it's part of life.

24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
Losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you. They both suck, but I choose that one because it's something you could control. You could work harder at the friendship. The other you just can't control.

25. What are you most grateful for?
Having a family who is always there for me and supports me in all of my life decisions. Having a best friend who would give up anything for me means the world to me. Having a boyfriend who treats me the way a woman deserves to be treated.

26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
This one was one of the toughest questions I've had to answer so far. After really thinking about it, I'd rather lose all of my old memories. Sure, they're precious to me, BUT I plan on getting married and having children in the future. I want to be able to remember those moments, for sure.

27. Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Ahh, I think so, yes. That's what TRUST actually is right? Trusting something without questioning or challenging it.

28. Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Not yet. One of my top greatest fears in life is never being able to have my own children. And if I am, I'm terrified that I'll be a horrible mother.

29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now?
I do remember, and no it doesn't matter at all now. It usually doesn't, does it? We should really stop and think to ourselves, "Will this matter in 5 years?" Most of the time, it won't.. so why should we waste our time and energy being worked up about it?!

30. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?
Spending summers traveling with my grandparents. They would always come get me and my little sister and take us back to their home for weeks at a time. It was always so much fun driving through different states, stopping and eating at new restaurants, staying in fun hotels and seeing new attractions. It's so special to me because I cherish my grandparents and know they won't always be here with me. I love having those childhood memories to look back on.

These questions are getting more thought provoking the further on it goes, and I LOVE it. :)

Come back next week for the next 10 questions.

I agreed with you on so many of these! But the get rid of the old, make new memories question. What is up with that question?! Keep the old AND make new ones. I'm greedy I guess! HAHA

Melissa said...

I completely agree with 24, I pretty much said the exact same thing!!! I love all of these questions, they really make you think which I guess is the point LOL

You will NOT be a horrible mother!! I love what you said about having a boyfriend who treats you the way a woman deserves to be treated - a lot of people don't have that!

Jamie said...

Wow. Great questions and thoughtful answers.

Kristin said...

#24 is thought-provoking. I moved 30 minutes away from my friends here in Alaska. They dropped me like I moved to another country. Just because I didn't live in Anchorage anymore, I was "crazy".
And #29? I remember that time 4 years ago when I was really upset. Does that count?
You're so brave for posting these answers, Amber! :)

Meghan said...

These are some great questions. I couldn't agree more with your answer to #22! Seriously. After teaching for ten years, I find more and more that so much of a person's personality has to do with how they were raised!
