Count-down Challenge

So this was meant to be a 10-day challenge.  I didn’t do that, because I’m lazy and undisciplined.  But I found the prompts to be thought-provoking.  So here we are.

Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now

  1. What did I do to make you leave?
  2. I know I haven’t been enthusiastically supportive the last few years, but I’m proud of what you’ve accomplished recently.
  3. I wish you knew how much energy and time I spent on you.
  4. You can’t change the past.  No one knows what happened.  Please don’t blame yourself.
  5. I’m so happy I found you.  Timing could not have been better.
  6. You’ve grown so much in the last few years.  I’m proud of you.  Stay strong.
  7. I’m glad I get to see you everyday.
  8. I think we can have a great friendship.  Maybe more.
  9. You’ve been incredibly helpful, and I appreciate your support.  But no, I don’t want to sleep with you.
  10. You’re pretty cool.  We should hang out more.

Nine things about yourself

  1. I’ve never broken a bone or even sprained anything.
  2. When I was a kid, my favorite show was Power Rangers.
  3. Dolls scare me.
  4. I had an extensive collection of plushie snakes.  They all had names and relationships with each other.
  5. I’ve only ever had one experience with drugs.
  6. I have an irrational fear of getting my nails done.
  7. I can’t sleep without socks on.
  8. I’m half Filipina.  The only words I know in Tagalog are obscenities and the words for genitals.
  9. I will gladly let you have the frosting on my cake.

Eight ways to win your heart

  1. Be passionate about what you do.  I don’t care what it is.
  2. Be health-conscious.
  3. Flirt with my nerdiness.
  4. Make an effort to spend time with me.
  5. Tell me I’m important to you. And mean it.
  6. Listen.  Like, really listen.  I can have a lot to say.
  7. Be proud of me.
  8. Allow me to explore my interests.

Seven things that cross your mind a lot

  1. “Am I required to put clothes on today?”
  2. “Why hasn’t natural selection removed stupid people yet?”
  3. “I don’t know what’s wrong with your computer. I just googled the same question you asked me.”
  4. “I should probably code something but I’m too lazy.”
  5. “Oh that’s a cool idea….does it work as a tattoo?”
  6. “I should write about that.”
  7. “What’s gonna happen to my mom if she finds out how many people I’ve slept with?!”

Six things you wish you had never done
(This was difficult.  I make it a point to not regret things in life.  I’m editing this question slightly, to “things you wish had turned out differently”)

  1. I wish I hadn’t let myself get so out of touch with reality.
  2. I wish I did more in college.
  3. I wish I had done better in that interview.
  4. I wish that big screw-up at work never happened.
  5. I wish I didn’t let people try to change me.
  6. I wish I hadn’t lost touch with so many former friends.

Five people who mean a lot to you
(in order of when I met them)

  1. Mom.
  2. Dad.
  3. My aunt.
  4. My best friend.
  5. Sir.

Four turn-offs

  1. Dirty bathrooms.
  2. Uninteresting conversation.
  3. Unhealthy lifestyles.
  4. Disrespect.

Three turn-ons

  1. Confidence.
  2. Intelligence.
  3. Skilled, passionate kissing.

Two images that describe your life right now and why

These images represent an interesting dichotomy I’m going through.

  1. As evidenced by my entire blog, I’m doing a lot of self-exploration right now.  Lots of adventures into unknown territory.  It’s been fun, a little scary at times, but definitely worthwhile.
  2. At the same time, there are other areas in my life where I feel a bit held back.  Lately I’ve been questioning my career choices, for one.  I feel like I’ve settled into something I’m ok with, instead of really pursuing something I want.

One confession

  1. As much as I talk about casual relationships, staying independent, and not wanting to settle down, I am somewhat jealous of people in committed relationships.  I don’t know what it feels like to have that–to have someone maintain a vested interest in me for more than a few months.  I’m certainly not in a rush to find that kind of commitment, but I do feel a little disheartened when I realize it hasn’t come along yet.
