Plans Fell Through

The aforementioned plans are nothing to do with the book. It's a podcast. I was actually going to record one, but like I said the plans fell through. All I would have done is just answer more questions that'll free your mind, so it's all good. I also told you not to expect one so you won't be too disappointed.

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
I think right now I'm a bit of both really. But if I had to pick I think I would rather be a worried genius. Knowledge is power. Ignorance is bliss, but bliss can't last for too long.

Why are you, you?
Everything that has ever happened to me, the good and the bad, has influenced me and helped create the person I became today. At the end of the day though I made me, me. I created who I am because I allowed the things to influence me. If I had chosen what influenced me differently, what I cared about and didn't care about, I would have ended up differently.

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
Yes, and sadly no. I don't treat anyone else like I treat Jessica and there are people I treat differently from others. Still, no matter my reasons, rhyme, or motivation, I'm there for the people that want or need me, and I wouldn't mind friends who were like that for me.
Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
A good friend losing contact. If someone moves away, you can keep in contact with them, and you still have a friend. If you wanted you could always go and visit them. Then again I suppose if you lost contact with a close friend you can always put more effort in to the relationship. I guess in the end they're both as bad as eachother but they can be fixed.
What are you most grateful for?
My friends, including my pets.

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
As part of my psych course I have read about a guy who was unable to make new memories. It sounded like hell. He would write a diary and scribble it all out because he didn't remember it. I think after knowing what it's like to not be able to make memories, I would rather lose the existing ones. Hell, I can even be with the people I'm supposed to be with like that. If it meant something to me, we can make it happen again.

Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Yes. I know that electrocution can kill a person, and I've never been electrocuted. You should always question the facts, and do your own research to be sure, but there are some things we can generally accept as facts. Plus there are things people claim to know with no proof of, such as God, and Cthulu. Though Cthulu totally exists.

Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Yes. I have been truly and utterly alone before.

Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now?
How did you know it was exactly five years? It doesn't really matter any more, but it still upsets me sometimes.

What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?
Happiest childhood memory? This is going to make it sound like I had a terrible child but I'm not really sure. I guess for proper childhood, as in pre-pre-teen, it would be mattress sledding. The greatest fun you can have with a mattress and a set of stairs. Oh the hilarity. Why is it so special? It's riding down a set of stairs on a mattress, how can it not be special? 


  1. I must say, I don't mind one bit that your podcast fell through (totally for selfish reasons...because usually I can't get them to work for me!!) and I really love this series of questions you are answering!

    Mattress sledding is ALWAYS special!

  2. That 'what makes you you' question is impossible to answer. I'm impressed you did as well with it as you did.

  3. I reckon I should be most grateful for my friends although sometimes I'm not, I need to work on that haha. Great answers Mark, I don't think I'm a worried genius but I am too smart to not be able to see life for how shit it is unfortunately.

  4. Mark! Mark! Mark! [hugs]

    Great answers, as usual. Especially the one about the "truth". One should not be afraid to question facts. It doesn't really mean that one's stupid. it simply means that one's curious and would like to know more. ... Right? Hehe.

    Wow. I've missed you!

    Wow. I've never tried mattress sledding.. like ever! :(

  5. I love mattress sledding! It's great on an air bed. Me and four friends did it all at once! :D x

  6. Great answers. Some of those questions are really hard to answer well.

  7. A lot of introspection lately. Still wondering if you're feeling alright.

  8. Very interesting questions, and a good insight into who you are and what you're all about. Tone seems a little somber, though. Hope everything's going well for you. The memory thing reminded me of a movie called Memento have you seen that? Very cool flick.

    Mich is also a big believer in Cthulu, I just saw her post something about a shirt she wore to the gym. You know Mich, right? She's still around here, though she has been hard at work on her latest novel.

    Mattress sledding sounds like a lot of fun. I'd probably be too scared to slide down a flight of stairs though. Snow-covered hills are more my style.
