365 questions: 225 - 235
225. What is your saddest memory? I tend to block super emotional stuff out. If you want a recent sad memory, though, it would be me at Jerry's funeral, knowing I didn't make it home in time to say goodbye. That breaks my heart.
226. What would you like to change? The number on the scale. For something less superficial, the amount of money I owe in student loans.
227. How many people do you love? Lots. I can't help but care about people.
228. What’s the best decision you’ve ever made? Oh, goodness. The best one I've ever made? I don't know for certain. The decision to learn from my past mistakes rather than regretting anything was probably a wise one, though.
229. What’s your favorite true story that you enjoy sharing with others? I love recounting my ridiculous adventures in Italy from last summer - couchsurfing with men who proposed marriage, getting a room with three guys I'd met an hour before, and sharing one bed with two other people who were both feeling a little amorous.
230. Right now, at this moment, what do you want most? I want to know what the future holds. I've never been big on surprises. I like to have all my shit in line, and life has sorta thrown me a twist lately.
231. What are you waiting for? How are you writing your life’s story? I'm waiting for love and for success. But I'm writing my story with a little humor.
232. What makes love last? Hard work, every day. Love is a decision, not just an emotion.
233. What good comes from suffering? Strength and the experience. Every experience is one from which to learn.
234. What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year? Don't take anything for granted. Not love, not people, not money.
235. Based on you current daily actions and routines, where would you expect to be in five years? Ideally, I would be writing for a wine magazine or consulting for a snooty restaurant. Happily married to the love of my life. Student loans hopefully paid off. Probably without kids.
