As part of my 101 things to do in 1001 days I’ve accepted the challenge of answering the ‘5000 Question Survey’. I’ll be following the original 50 parts and answer a 100 questions per post. This is part fourteen with questions 1301 – 1400.
1301. Can “what you don’t know” actually hurt you?
1302. Are you pondering what I’m pondering?
1303. What people or objects would you describe as “pure”?
1304. Are you into bookcrossing (If you aren’t sure, check out www.bookcrossing.com)?
I would like to try!
1305. Have you ever had a pen pal?
Yes. Not very long though. I’m not very good at it.
1306. Have you ever had a package pal (same as a pen pal but you send each other surprise gifts instead of letters)?
Yes. Pretty much the same as above
1307. Is there a particular word or phrase that annoys you?
It’s usually the frequency at a particular word or phrase is used that gets annoying.
1308. Is there an online game you like to play?
Loads! World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Splatoon, Pokken Tournament, etc.
1309. What group of people is the most discriminated against in your opinion or experience?
Honestly don’t know.
1310. What do you like best about bras and underwear?
They can make you feel pretty, make your clothes look better, and prevent things like nipples poking through shirts haha.
1311. Are you afraid of living in oblivion?
1312. Before you were born you got to pick your life from one of these. Which do you pick?
You are successful from the start, a musical genius, good looking, wealthy. You become a rock tar, get super famous, make your mark on the world and die at 27.
You are caring and compassionate. You love animals and adopt more and more as you grow older. You foster and nurture and care for them all of your life.
You sit home playing video games for 70 years.
Definitely not the first one, can’t really choose between the last two… I mean one doesn’t exclude the other… Playing video games sounds pretty good though…
1313. What is broken in your: Car? School? House? Life? Soul? Brain?
Nothing is broken.
1314. Which one will you fix first?
Don’t need fixing.
1315. Tell me all your thoughts on god:
To each their own. But not for me.
1316. What is the strangest note you’ve ever received?
Haven’t really gotten any strange notes.
1317. Of the following how many can be used to get in touch with you? Phone, Beeper, Voice mail, Email, Cell phone, Snail mail.
I suppose all except for the beeper. Although by cell phone and email would probably be most effective.
1318. Are you always available/easy to reach, or do you give people a chance to miss you?
Usually I’m very easy to reach.
1319. If you got pregnant or impregnated the person you are with now (hypothetical if there is no one in your life just now) would you lean more towards keeping, adopting out, or aborting the baby?
Definitely not adopting out. I wouldn’t be able to live with the thought of knowing my child is somewhere out there. I’d rather abort or keep it then. But which of the two would really depend on my partner as well. Personally I’d think I’d lean more towards abortion.
1320. If your partner in the pregnancy did not agree with how you felt and pressured you to change your mind or just went ahead with what he or she wanted to do against your wishes, would that affect your ability to continue your relationship with this person?
Not agreeing is fine, as long as we can come to a decision together. Forcefully pressuring or something would not be ok and would strongly affect my ability to continue my relationship with that person.
1321. Who should have the final say in the decision to have a baby, the woman or the man?
The woman. It is her who has the carry it for all those months, it’s her who has to go through labour, etc.
1322. If your boyfriend or girlfriend cheats on you for the first time, do you forgive him or her and take him or her back?
Define cheating? A drunken kiss or a full blown affaire? The first I’d probably forgive, the second. I don’t know if I could ever trust that person ever again.
1323. What if it is your husband or wife that cheats on you?
See above. But let’s say we have been married happily for 20+ years and someone again makes a single mistakes than maybe I could forgive them.
1324. Who is more responsible for educating children, parents or schools?
Parents!!! I get so mad at all the news and reports from parents blaming school for their failure. I’m not talking educational achievement but morals and societal values. School sure does play a big part in it but parents are still way more important and responsible.
1325. Are you into new age things?
1326. Are you very: Nervous? Anxious? High strung? Organized? Tense? Rigid? Skeptical?
I guess a bit skeptical from time to time.

Everyone perceives reality in a different way.
1328. If you asked someone, “Do you masturbate?” and he or she says, “No,” would you assume he or she was lying?

Depends on the thing. Sometimes myself, sometimes my environment.

Pizza delivery girl or guy? Film director? Business man or woman? CEO? Surgeon? Fire man or woman? Cop?
I have been both a cashier and waitress and was pretty good at it. But right now I think I would do pretty good as office manager, bussiness woman, and ceo.
1336. Do you check condoms to see if they are expired before using them?
1337. Imagine you are in school and a person of the opposite sex you barely know asks you really nicely for a ride home from class (yes, you have a car). It’s out of your way. Do you say yes? Let’s say you said yes. S/he hugs you. What is your reaction? As you drop him or her off s/he hugs you again and thanks you for being such a nice person. What do you make of all this?
It really depends on the vibe I get of this person and if someone else I know knows them. I would probably be a bit weirded out by the hugging. And perhaps see it as way to “make a move” on me?
