50 Questions to Free Your Mind : Part One, Questions 1-5

Hello everyone!

One of my goals/to do's/things to try on my Day Zero Project is to complete the 50 Questions to Free Your Mind. Now, there are fifty of them, and there is no WAY I am going to answer them all at once in one blog entry. Instead, I am going to answer a few at a time! This will allow me to give more thorough answers (something I am really bad at) versus giving one or two sentence answers.

 Here we go!!

1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
   - I don't know if this is asking how old I would be if I could choose, or how old I would think I am. I got mistaken for a high schooler yesterday, which is always awesome. If I could freely choose my age, I don't think I would. Age doesn't define someone. Maturity does. I've known some nineteen year olds that act more like adults than some thirty-somethings that I know, and vice-versa. I have known people that matured way faster than other people the same age as them. Age really is just a number of how many years someone has been on this planet.

2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
  - Failing definitely sucks, but at least an attempt was made. I think it'd be way worse to not attempt something you've been wanting to do, than try said thing and fail at it. It's about the experience, the journey, how you get there, not about the destination.

3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
   - I think doing something you don't like is part of life. There will always be things that people don't want to do. No one wants to go to a job they don't like (some people are fortunate enough to not be sucked into that world), no one wants to pay taxes, no one wants to do anything serious like that. However, if life was all fun and games, society wouldn't be what we know it to be today. To answer the second part of that question, I believe people like things they don't do because it's something to appreciate. For example, I am absolutely terrible and anything with art. I can't draw to save my life, but when I see art, I appreciate its beauty, and I appreciate the effort the artist put into it.

4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you've done?
   - Not really sure what this question is asking either. I am interpreting it as "are you doing things you want to do rather than wishing you are" or something to that extent. I would have to say yes and no, but there isn't a lot of change/things that I'd wish upon myself at the moment. There will be plenty of time in the future to make plans for other things. I do feel like I am forever stuck in between "if you want something done, you have to do it yourself" and "see where life takes you." It sucks being there sometimes, but at the same time, it can be really exciting!

5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
   - Judgement. Everyone is so judgmental of everyone else. What clothes she's wearing, what job he has, what her hair looks like, what his shoes look like, what job she has, what his sexual orientation is, what political party they belong to, what car she drives, how nonathletic he is.... I could go on. Everyone does it, unfortunately, I've caught myself doing it too. I feel if everyone STOPPED judging everyone, peoples lives would change for the better. People would be happier, more friendly towards everyone, and half of the problems this country has would be gone.

If you would like to answer these questions, or if you have, please leave me a link to where you answered the questions down in the comments below! If you haven't, and you'd like to, I invite you to answer these questions with me!
