26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Maybe this will sound crazy. But if I had to choose right this moment, I’d rather lose all my old memories. The idea of being able to start new is kind of exciting and I have so much more life to live. Wouldn’t it be sad to never be able to make a new memory? To me that means you might as well just die. It’s kind of a choice between forever living in the past or choosing the future.
27. Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? Sure, I think so. Some things we know to be true without having to challenge them. Like candy is awesome. Truth. I didn’t need to challenge that. I know candy is awesome, always have. Other things aren’t as simple and you have to challenge them first. I still do research to this day on politics, especially when it’s time to vote. I’m not going to vote for someone simply because they are affiliated with a certain party. I challenge what I know to be true because maybe I’ll find someone that isn’t affiliated with the party I typically vote for yet I agree with them. Kind of just depends on the situation.
28. Has your greatest fear ever come true? My greatest fear is to lose someone I love in a tragic event. Obviously it’s always sad to lose a loved one but to lose someone too soon is what I truly fear. I guess in a way this has happened, a friend of mine Jake died about a year and a half ago at the age of 22. It still brings tears to my eyes to this day. It’s not a good feeling for sure.
29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? Five years ago I was 23. And I’m sure I had times when I was extremely upset. Now? It doesn’t really matter. I’m sure at the time it was a big deal. But in the grand scheme of things some things just don’t matter as much as they once did. So nope, those times 5 years ago when I was extremely upset aren’t really so important now.
30. What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special? I can’t remember how old I was but I remember my brother and me flying to Florida to spend a week or so with my grandparents. We’d just moved to Minnesota (I’m originally from Illinois, where my grandparents were from) and it was hard living far away from our grandparents. Getting to spend a week with them was an exciting treat. I don’t even remember a lot of what went on that week but I do remember loving the time I got to spend with my grandparents. It’s something I’ll always cherish.
