The 5,000 Question Survey (Part 2)

101. What does happiness/joy feel like physically?To me, I feel fulfilled. I feel like I have no worries or fears. Sometimes I feel invincible.

102. List five people you love starting with the one you love the absolute most.
Ok because I don’t love these people more or less than either, I’ll just list them randomly.
A. My daddy
B. My mom
C. My sister
D. My brother-in-law
E. My nephew

103. How many movies have you gone to see this month?Zero. I really don’t get to the movies much anymore now. I’m hoping to go see one over Thanksgiving.

104. If you could have 3 wishes...but none of them could be for yourself, what would you wish for?
1. For good health for my dad.
2. For clean water and food for every person that needs it.
3. For everyone to know the love that I have known in my life from my family and God.

105. In what ways do you relax and de-stress when you are really tense?
I used to love to play the piano to relax but I don’t have one right now. Painting really calms me and helps me put my thoughts together. So does doing puzzles but I haven’t done that in a while. Laying on the couch and watching TV always is relaxing but listening to music always de-stresses me.

106. How much money would it take to get you to drive to school naked in the springtime and get out of the car?
No amount of money would convince me to do that.

107. Have you ever killed an animal?
I ran over a squirrel once.

108. Have you ever lost someone close to you?
Yes, several people. Three grandparents, my best friend’s mom and a close childhood friend.

109. What do you think of cloning?
I think when you really get down to the nitty-gritty of it, you really aren’t accomplishing anything because it’s still just a copy, not the original.

110. Do you read or watch TV more often?
I watch TV. I wish I would make more time to read but that Bravo channel is so enticing.

111. With all this talk of terrorism going around are you willing to sacrifice rights and freedoms for increased safety?
I don’t really understand this question because if people were really doing their job I wouldn’t have to sacrifice rights and freedoms for increased safety. That is no jab to the armed forces though because they are the ones that sacrifice their lives for my safety. I just think there is a lot that we civilians don’t know and if we did, things would be a lot different.

112. What is the punishment you would come up with for Osama Bin Laden if you caught him alive?
I’d make him come watch a softball game. He’d want to commit suicide after that.

113. Have you ever named an individual part of your body?
Uh, no.

114. Have you ever been on the radio or on TV?
I’ve been on TV. Nothing big. Just the news.

115. Have you ever won a lottery, or sweepstakes?
Nope. I never win anything like that. Unless you count that one time I won that book from Annie Downs.

116. Have you ever won a contest or competition?
See above. I also win at bingo a lot. And trivia games. I’m really good at Catchphrase.

117. Do you like to watch The Joy of Painting show with Bob Ross?
Not really.

118. Do you know what your grandparents and your great grand parents did for a living?
My dad’s dad was a bus driver for Trailways. He drove over a million miles and was honored for it. My dad’s mom was a cafeteria worker. I used to love when she would sub in at my school after retirement. My mom’s dad worked for Puckett Machinery. My mom’s mom was a housewife. I never knew any of my great grandparents.

119. Is there anything really interesting in your family history?
My mom’s dad and my dad played football at MSU. My great uncle played basketball there too. I think that’s pretty interesting. My mom’s dad was also a charter member of the Kappa Sigs at MSU. MSU blood runs thick in my family. Oh, and my dad claims to know Tarzan or something like that.

120. Is there anyone you trust completely?
I usually completely trust all of my friends. If I don’t by now, you’ve been cut off. I completely trust anything my parents or my sister and BIL say too.

121. Have you ever lost someone without having the chance to say goodbye?
When my friend Brad died, I hadn’t seen him in probably a year or two. My grandfather died about a month after the last time I saw him and I always prepared myself that it would probably be the last time. My grandmother died about a week after the last time I saw her. I had no idea that would be the last time I saw her.

122. How do you feel about women in politics?
I think it’s great. How am I supposed to feel? As long as they can get the job done and do it with the right motives, I think there is no difference between a man and woman in politics.

123. Would you rather have an indoor Jacuzzi or an outdoor pool?
Outdoor pool.

124. What things are you interested in that you study or read about on your own?
Anything involving religion or sports. Also African aid and World War II really intrigue me, as does the British Royal Family.

125. Would you consider yourself to be intelligent?

126. Would you consider yourself to be wise?
In certain subjects, but very few. And only because of experience. I’d say I’m wiser than I was before about some things.

127. Have you ever given or received a lap dance?
Uh, no sir.

128. Have you ever spoken to a homeless person?
Yes. Several.

129. Would you ever creep into the subway tunnels to go exploring?
If I had someone with me.

130. If you could add 70 years to your life but only by making some random person die 70 years sooner would you?
Nope. When my time is done, my time is done. It’s not worth sacrificing someone else’s life for more time.

131. Can you finish any of the following lyrics?

A: Nothing to kill or die for...
I’m drawing a blank.

B: Late comings with the late comin' stretcher...
This one too.

Still nothing.

Can’t say that I have.

133. Would you rather be a world political leader or a rock star?
Rock star. Politics make my head hurt.

134. Have you ever given someone a love letter that you wrote?

135. Have you ever sent someone a surprise though the mail?
Yep. Bethany and I send each other surprises all the time.

136. Are you looking forward to any concerts right now?
If I can get tickets and find someone to go with me to see John Mayer in Birmingham in February, I’ll much be looking forward to that one.

137. Of all animated movies, which is the best one you've ever seen?

Anything, really, to me. My favorites are Switchfoot, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, Marc Broussard and Sean Kingston.

139. What do you think is the most amazing thing that anyone has ever accomplished?
That’s hard to say. I think anyone who can overcome a bad situation and rise above it to make something out of themselves is an accomplishment in itself.

140. What could a member of the opposite sex do to impress you?
Pray for/with me.

141. About how many emails do you get a day?
Who knows in my Samford account, probably 50ish. My Yahoo and Gmail is probably about 12-15 at day.

How many of those emails are junk mail?
Yahoo, all but about two a day are junk. Gmail is pretty much all Facebook notifications and notifications. Samford is a good mix.

How many of them are forwards?
Very few.

142. What's your favorite thing to do online besides write in your diary and hang out at this site?
Ok, A) I don’t write in a diary, I write on my blog. B) I don’t hang out at “this” site. Whatever that means. And C) I really do like writing on my blog.

143. Do you believe Kurt Cobain killed himself or was it a conspiracy?
Anyone who dabbles in drugs like he did, well...

Life can change. You just have to make it change.
