I feel like, because of having access to technology, kids today are missing out on some of the classic things we did growing up. Like playing M*A*S*H*… do you remember that? It always came up with the goofiest stuff and I don’t think it’ll be the same if they turn it into an app.
We also had notebooks that we would pass around to each other and we would add in goofy surveys, come up with code names for the guys we liked and talk about everything else middle school and high school girls were worried about. The surveys were always the fun part. And of course, I still love answering random questions.
And so, that’s where today’s post comes from!
If you could….
Travel anywhere, where would it be?
Oh man, this is such a loaded question! There are so many places in the world that I want to go. We’ve been lucky enough to go to a lot of wonderful locations already.
I would have to say Germany or Thailand… those two spots top my list. I would also consider Cape Town in South Africa.
Meet anyone, who would it be?
I feel like the answer to this question changes over time, as I find new passions and lose other ones. If you would have asked me this a few years ago, I would have answered Lil’ Wayne hands down. He used to be my #1, but over the years, I feel like he’s changed quite a bit (I guess it’s the fame?) and it’s not really up there anymore.
Honestly, I would have to say if I have to pick someone living, I would love to spend some time with President Obama. I think he has faced more challenges in his presidency, those that have been different than what other people have experienced, but challenging nonetheless, and it would be amazing to speak to him and gain his perspective.
On a lighter note, it would be pretty awesome to sit down and have lunch with Shalane Flanagan, too. That girl is a rockstar!
Get anything free for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Have any superpower, what would it be?
Ooh, I think it would to have the ability to fly (and of course, take a passenger). That would make visiting the places above so very cheap! And can you imagine how amazing the commute would be?!
Be any animal for a day, who would you be?
I feel like the uncreative part of me would say be a cat so that I can catch up on all the sleep.
The more creative part of my soul would say that I want to be a cheetah. It would be amazing to feel like what it would feel like to run as fast as they can!
Change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Add more love for another. As cheesy as it sounds, I feel like this is missing in the world today and it’s only getting worse. As we become more self-absorbed thanks to social media and focused on ourselves, we seem to forget what we can do for others. Paying it forward is one small step, but there’s so much more that we can do. I think a lot of the world’s problems would be solved, or at least more like nuisances, if we all learned how to love more.
