So, everyone in SA blogging land is doing this meme. I decided to do it all in one post...
Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself
My sometimes twisted, sometimes dark, sometimes dorky sense of humour.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Letting some people down.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
I think I've forgiven everyone I was angry with and that hurt me.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Make a difference.... maybe even leave the world a better place.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Lose a child.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
No one in particular.. but people seem to pop up when I need them.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
The men I used to love. All of them.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
I used to hold onto people for longer than I needed to. I'm getting better at letting things go when their time is up. No regrets on that.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
No one in my life right now.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
I dont remember those types of things. Refer Day 2.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
I've never been told I should be a supermodel. Refer Day 1.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days.
Alanis Morissette, Alicia Keyes, Mariza. Sing it, sisters.
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down.
Dont think I have any. I admire people for just being real.
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
The Internet. Seriously... I've tried. I NEED to be connected...
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Oh, lots of irritating and stupid people but it's not very nice to name and shame. I just quietly ignore... mostly. Or rant about it on Twitter. ;)
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Hmm.. so many. I'll pick Supernature by Lyall Watson because I liked the link he made between nature and the supernatural. It lead me onto an interesting exploration of science and "new age stuff" when I was about 18. These days, I'm far too cynical to believe in anything, though.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Go for it. Though I'm actually rather anti-marriage in general.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Religion is the opium of the masses. Great for other people, I guess... just leave me out of it.
And politics is great entertainment... as long as they dont have too much power to influence my life.
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
I have never done any drugs. None. Ever.
Alcohol is ok although I really dont like the taste. I still prefer cooldrinks.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Get to the hospital. Bygones.
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Wasted time and money at university.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Wish I'd hopped on a plane and left everything when I had the chance.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs.
This will take too long... some other time. But I might just play "waka waka" for @al_ice ;)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Because I haven't done anything yet... though I'm not sure how many more chances I'll be given.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Yes, often. Because I dont know what to do with myself, mainly. And, sometimes because the pain seems more than the good stuff.
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Um... my sense of humour. Keeps me sane-ish.
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
I'd have to find me a donkey and get myself to Bethlehem, I guess.
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Would be nice if I was nicer to myself. Working on it.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself
Refer Day 2 and Day 27. That's it, ok?
