100 Questions Meme

I got this from keira­caitlin, but I did see it in ga_sunshine and star­rchilde’s jour­nals too. It got a LOT longer in the interim!

1. Copy this whole list into your journal.
2. Bold the things that you have in com­mon with me.
3. What­ev­er you don’t bold, replace with things about you.

01. I have made bad decisions.
02. I love Ital­ian food.
03. I’ve nev­er felt any temp­ta­tion to run away and join the cir­cus. They’re smelly. And I nev­er saw any books about a cir­cus. I don’t real­ly like circuses.
04. I like quite a few coun­try songs
05. If I’m ever rich, I’m just going to go to school and take what­ev­er cours­es strike my fan­cy. I adore learning.
06. Some­times I won­der if any­one under­stands. But then I fig­ure I’m prob­a­bly being melo­dra­mat­ic. And I know that I don’t let most peo­ple as close as they think they are, so how could they real­ly understand?
07. I hate not func­tion­ing as high­ly as I think I should.
08. I hate peo­ple who TypE LyKe D1s.
09. I also hate it when peo­ple use “how r u” instead of “how are you” And use the word “hun”. It should be “hon,” of course.
10. I am an excel­lent proofreader.
11. I’ve had sev­er­al operations.
12. I’ve nev­er bro­ken a bone. (Hmmm — does crack­ing one count? I’m not sure.)

20. I don’t know who Lewis Black is.
21. I love music.
22. I always wor­ry that I real­ly sound like crap when I’m singing, and every­one is just too polite to say anything.
23. I like the peo­ple I like far more than I actu­al­ly have the ener­gy to give to them—so I try to avoid inter­act­ing with the oth­ers so they don’t steal any of that energy.
24. It usu­al­ly takes me a while to process issues that are deeply emo­tion­al, then I do a core dump that can be very unset­tling for my SOs when they aren’t used to that yet.
25. I dream of hav­ing a just-for-fun bookstore/coffee shop/stitching nook—basically bait for meet­ing neat new peo­ple in the real world.
26. I have issues. Does­n’t everyone?
27. I love hear­ing new kinds of (good) music.
28. I’m shy sometimes.

30. I’m too ner­vous about most arts & crafts things to try them. I’m sure my efforts will be crappy.
31. I hate los­ing touch with peo­ple. Even if I don’t see them often, I want to know that any­one I’m fond of is still “there.” One of the things I like about the Inter­net is that it allows me to stay in touch with more peo­ple more easily.

38. I’m tired.
39. I’m seri­ous­ly con­sid­er­ing chang­ing schools and majors.
40. I think that there are peo­ple that need to just go away. Per­ma­nent­ly, in many cas­es. And I have to wish that kar­ma worked far more quick­ly and direct­ly for most of them.
41. I real­ly enjoy cre­ative and per­son­al gifts, even if they cost nothing.
42. I wor­ry ter­ri­bly when peo­ple I love aren’t get­ting along well (or well enough) togeth­er, and want to “fix it.”
43. I try not to focus on all the mis­takes I have made. Rather, I focus on the lessons learned and mes­sages received.
44. I want a new stereo. And lots of oth­er things. Real­ly a “home enter­tain­ment system.”

62. I hide a lot behind humor.
63. I fear sub­stance abuse so much because of my fam­i­ly his­to­ry that I’ve had a very hard time accept­ing my legit­i­mate need for med­ica­tions that have a poten­tial for misuse.
64. I can be emo­tion­al. I don’t much like it, though.

78. I hate answer­ing the phone, but I can’t stand hear­ing one ring unanswered.
79. I hate those stu­pid ani­mat­ed emoti­cons peo­ple use in email nowa­days. They can’t do that except in HTML, and HTML in email is EVIL!
80. I drool over gad­gets that I know I’d nev­er use, just because they’re neat.
81. I’ve nev­er seen Duran Duran in con­cert. I don’t want to and nev­er have. I’m not much for big con­certs anyway.

91. There are oth­er, far more impor­tant things that I should have been doing with this time.

98. I like to sur­round myself with beauty.
99. I can cross-stitch.

I was­n’t at all sure about these:
Most peo­ple don’t know how to take me at first. Did you know how to take me? Do you? Hell, I don’t know how to take me!
I am con­trol­ling in many areas of my life. I’ve actu­al­ly let go in areas in which I was far more con­trol­ling in the past.
I’m not as young as I look, or as old as I feel. God­dess knows I’m not as old as I feel, but I have no idea how old I look!
