#1 - Note taking. When I was in elementary school, we had to learn how to take notes. My teacher would write outlines on the board for us to copy. I HATED it. It was several years down the road when I realized how important knowing how to make an outline is. Kids in schools don't learn this anymore. It's too bad. Important skill that is being lost. One that can make report writing easier.
#2 - Of course we are here for a reason. Why? Too deep to go into. There is also a very basic physical reason why we are here. Don't understand? Time to have a long talk with the parents.
#3 - "Prolonging the magic" - I guess is another way of saying anticipation. Sometimes the anticipation of something is better than the actual thing. It's like Christmas. I love Christmas day, but the month long anticipation leading up to it is even better. I guess in the phrase "prolonging the magic" is not quite the same. It would be like waking up on Christmas morning and finding out you can't open presents or eat the turkey dinner until tomorrow, when Grandma is scheduled to arrive into town.
#4 - Have I ever done something just to feel the danger? Not really. Nothing dangerous anyway. I guess I've done some things slightly on the rebellious side just to do it. I suppose driving the golf-cart-like vehicle in the dark, at it's highest speed through the walking paths of the park I work at, just because I can, could be an example of this. Not necessarily dangerous, though.
#5 - Favorite cliché? "It never rains but it pours."
#6 - How do rainy days make me feel? I love rainy days. They make me happy. They can fuel my sadness if I'm having a sad day. They can make me feel nostalgic. They make me think of magic, too. Not magic tricks, but like magic in a wonderful fairy tale. Hard to explain.....
#7 - The most amount of money I've ever had at one time? I don't really know. In my hands? In my bank account? Stashed away in a secret hiding place in my room? Don't know. Not telling.
#8 - Celebrity crush list? Not putting that here. I have one, don't get me wrong, but it will not be revealed here. Sorry.
No reason for this post. I was looking through a list of journal-prompts. Some of them inspire deep thoughts. Many I found among the list, I wouldn't want to answer, such as "If you could tell the world one thing, what would it be?" First off, I don't really know. Secondly, I know it could never happen, so why torture myself with the idea. Thirdly, if I could, most of the world wouldn't care what it was I had to say. Fourth, I don't think it is a question that should ever have an answer. If we only have one thing in our lives to say, our minds aren't thinking creatively anymore and I couldn't bear that.
