4. 20. 49. 60. 100.
4. Tell me about a movie/song/tv show/play/book that has changed your life.
Song: Futile Devices by Sufjan Stevens- Because he talks about all the different ways and reasons that he loves this person. And he says “I could say I love you, but saying it out loud is hard.” (Which is something that I totally identify with.) And what he’s saying is that there are so many different ways that he could articulate his love for this person (which is clear because he states some of them in the song), but he’s still not sure that what he’s saying is perfect or good enough. So he says “So I won’t say it all… And words are futile devices.” Meaning that sometimes, and especially when it comes to love, words just aren’t enough, and are, therefore, pointless. And I think that’s something that applies to a lot of different aspects of love. It’s just so complex that it can’t always be articulated, and I think that’s what’s so beautiful about it.
20. Have you ever spent the night in a hospital?
Yes. I was kept overnight for observation following my appendectomy.
49. Could you be in a long distance relationship? If you’re in one, what makes yours work?
I’m in one now and all I can really say is that communication goes a loooooooooong way. Not that I’m saying you should blow up each other’s phones every day, cause that’s crazy; but definitely communication about the relationship and feelings and all that. Plus, it’s good to have patience, trust, and forgiveness. Long distance is trying on anyone, so you need to have those things so that distance doesn’t destroy you.
60. Do you believe that there is life on other planets?
Sure. And I think it might be kinda cool if there was.
100. Give me the story of your life in six words.
I am learning as I live.
