Here are some questions from my good friend Vivian.
- What are three ways blogging has affected your life?
First and foremost it has made me realize that I was not alone with diabetes and because of that I am motivated to make diabetes a priority in my life. Second, it has allowed me to meet some truly amazing people that have become my friends. And lastly, it works as therapy for me by giving me a place to share all my ups and downs. I will never stop blogging because of these three things.
- What is something you feel you could not live without but take for granted?
Hands down, my wife. We have been together for so long that I forget to show her how important she is. I could not live without her. She is my other/better/favorite half!
- Name two things you love about yourself and then name two things you would like to be able to add to that list.
It is not easy to look at yourself and name things you love so I will try my best. I would say my sense of humor. I tend to make people laugh and love to laugh so I guess that is one. The other would be the gift I have for making people feel comfortable. I have always been a sounding board for friends and strangers. Almost like a bartender but without any booze (that I am sharing). I love to make friends so that “comfort” thing or whatever it is I am very thankful for.
I would love to love my physical self. I think I am fat and ugly and I really hate to look at myself. I wish I could really love what I look like. The other would be a love for my intelligence. I honestly feel like a moron. I do not act like one and I bet this will come as a shock to those of you who know me irl but I feel very undereducated and stupid. I wish I could love my brain I guess! LOL that sounds funny.
- Name the characteristics you think make a person worthy of being remembered for generations.
Integrity. Honesty. Selflessness. Loving. Someone who always does the right thing. Even if no giant event occurs in their life. Someone with those characteristics are the kind of people kids should study in school.
- If you and your family went into the federal witness protection program tomorrow, and you could choose your new life (career, where you live, etc.) what would your new life look like?
I would want to live in a small town in Minnesota and work on the set of a Prairie Home Companion. Maybe play drums or something. But definitely some place away from the busy life in southern California.
Alright, Let me know if you wanna play too by leaving a comment with your email address or email me at email@example.com and I will get back at ya! Be prepared for some wacky questions.
Thanks again Viv!!!
