In Reply to: Lazy Sunday poll- posted by cokechic on August 10, 2003 at 15:18:18:
: A little poll to pass the time...
: 1. Name one person (famous or not) who has had a direct influence on your life.
Well there are quite a few non-famous people who have, but in order to describe how, I would have to drift into corny, emotionally charged statements about my father, my best friend, and a certain girl - and this is not Oprah. So - famous person - Jim Morrison. Jim showed me how powerful rock n roll can be, and also showed me that I don't have the guts to do it myself.
: 2. Right now, are you where you think you should be in life?
I think I'm heading in the right direction - and that's the best any of us can hope for, cos in the end, there's only one destination anyway.
: 3. Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
Um...I've kinda gone back and forth on this idea. At first I did - I thought there was karma, and you got what you gave, and all that. Then I looked at things like 9/11 and just smaller, everyday injustices and horrors, and I thought "this is bullshit, it's all random and pointless and unfair" and got quite depressed for a while. Then, again, through small details mainly, I got to thinking that everything does seem to be linked somehow. And so, to conclude, at the moment, I've settled on the idea that not everything happens for a REASON - ie, there isn't a motivation or a cause for everything - but that everything is somehow tied together - it's all a big pathwork quilt, and there is some kind of giant masterpiece when it's all sewn together right.
Sorry, I've written an essay.
: 4. If you could wish for one thing, what would it be? (And for shits and giggles, lets say you are already the richest person ever, so extreme wealth is not viable wish)
To be with the one I love (corny, but true - as so many things in life are)
: Thats all... Happy Sunday.
Same to you fellow internet procrastinator
