Stolen from Courtney Droski...

  • How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 25 - old enough to do anything - young enough to be cool
  • Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying
  • 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? Because we all sell out to social pressures
  • When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? That I was planning on exercising
  • What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? That people complained less and did more
  • If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Being a highway planner so I could fix all the world's traffic problems
  • Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? I'm doing what I believe in
  • If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differen...__I'd be married with two children by now__
