Neglected this a bit (by bit I mean for about four months), so I’m going to catch up now. All 120 questions that I’ve failed to answer, under the cut.
Need to catch up, so here’s quite a few (under the cut) in one, massive post.
How is your heart lately?
Would you rather love one person or have many short relationships?
I can’t really answer this. Who’s to say that someone I’d have a short relationship with wouldn’t turn out to be the love of my life? Ideally I’d like to get married and stay with that person forever, but I’m pretty certain that life doesn’t work out that way, sometimes. And I’m happy with that.
Do you think more about the past, present, or future?
At the moment, I’m definitely thinking more about the future. Not, like, decades away, but more the immediate future; patients need booked in, and things need planned, and I’m looking forward to going home in two weeks, and then I’ll graduate and find a job and buy a car and all the hard work will be worth it.
It’s about the only thing that keeps me going through the exam period.
What do you think about ignorant people?
My emotions generally range from extreme anger, to frustration, to pity. People are only ignorant because they haven’t been educated about something, or because they were taught to think of something in a certain way. Sometimes it can’t be changed, thus the pity. But sometimes people just need a good slap.
Is there someone that makes you happy every time you see them?
My Mum. She’s just the best.
Is it easy to trust others?
Yeah, I think so. It requires some faith in them, but until you’re given a reason not to trust someone I reckon you always should.
Are you planning on having children one day?
I hope to, yeah. I’m already quite broody, but I think that’s just because they’re other people’s problem when they cry and poo and smell.
How important do you think education is?
VERY. VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY.
(By education I mean up to 16, I’m aware that higher education isn’t for everybody, but I think it’s imperative that everybody learns to read, write and do simple mathematics.)
How have you changed in the past 2 years?
I reckon I’m more mature, I’m more focussed, and I’m more driven than I was two years ago. I reckon I’m probably more calm, too. But I don’t really know…it’s hard to identify things about yourself.
Someone who fascinates you?
I tend not to be fascinated by people, and more by what people discover. Science and space and the fact that there are such clever, clever people out there discovering things fascinates me.
How do you feel about people disrespecting their parents?
I can’t comment on anyone else, because everyone has different relationships and things. I guess in the year leading up to me moving out I disrespected my parents a bit…not because I didn’t actually have any respect for them and everything they’ve given me, but more because of the fact that I felt I wasn’t respected as an adult.
Occasionally when I’m home my parents treat me like I’m four, but it just takes a quick reminder of the fact that I’ve lived on my own for three years now, and they back off. So now, I’d never disrespect them, because we have a good relationship.
I think it depends on what you class as disrespect, too. I’d never swear at my parents, and tend not to do so in front of them, but some people think nothing of it.
Something you can’t wait for?
MY REAL LIFE TO BEGIN.
One of the nicest things anyone has said to you?
Errr…the day I knew for sure I got into uni was pretty much the best day of my life (that sounds so stupid, but I worked really, really hard…), so when Mrs Payne said, “I rang them and checked, you’re in. Let’s go and tell Mrs Wager” that was probably the nicest thing ever.
And, you know, it’s nice to be told that you’re loved.
