I’ve Been Tagged!

Filed under: Reflections — ktismatics @ 11:25 am

Thanks to Jon Erdman at Theos Project, I’ve been personally selected to answer a few survey questions. Instead of telling you my answers, I’ll give you the right answers.

1. What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why? (two sentences max)

Right now. Because I’m lucky enough to be doing what I love and getting paid for it.

2. Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did? (one sentence max)

Sit under a tree and read a book

3. Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off? (one sentence max)

Climb K2.

4. What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why? (two sentences max)

Be a better listener, because everybody has so much wisdom. Windsurf, because it’s so free.

5. If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn? (two more sentences, max)

Mother Teresa, because she was one gutsy lady.

6. What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?

Loyal, honest, nerdy.

7. Now list two more words you wish described you…

Hot, cool.

8. What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes– three sentences max)

Saving the rainforests. Jazz. My wife/husband.

9. Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone (with answer in three sentences max)

Question: Don’t you wish you were me? Answer: No, not really.

Questions? Disagreements? Alternative right answers? How many did you get right? (Note: I’m not going to tag anyone else, since it might make all those other great people who weren’t chosen feel bad.)

  2. 8. What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes– three sentences max)

    Saving the rainforests. Jazz. My wife/husband.

    What type of jazz music do you listen to the most?

    Bonus question: Is your wife/husband male or female?

  3. No, see, these aren’t my answers; they’re the right answers. I’m not sure I’m ready to get more detailed right now. But you may feel free to elaborate.

  5. Well, I thought, that is, I imagined, welll, oh never mind. Maybe I’ll try again, maybe I’ll just forget the whole thing. Thanks for tagging me anyway, bud.

  6. The “right” answers reflected what I thought might be the most socially desirable persona. The fact is, just thinking about these kinds of questions makes me sad, so I generally try to avoid it. But okay, into the abyss I go…

    1. Maybe writing my first novel. I thought I’d found the thing I was best at, and it was exciting to see how the day would turn out.
    2. Have hope for the future.
    3. Nothing. I already quit putting it off, and now I mostly wish I hadn’t.
    4. It’s too late for that sort of thing now.
    5. See #4.
    6. Melancholy. Angry. Bitter.
    7. Worthwhile. Kindly.
    8. See #6.
    9. Question: How do you stand it? Answer: Try not to think about it.

  7. 1. Don’t forget to tell me when your book comes out!
    2. pessimists live longer than optimists
    3. It is more fun to climb a moutain in your dreams, when you fall of, you’re still alive in the morning.
    4. being a better listener may be related to the audience, to that what you’re missing to hear and the amount of knowledge you already have acquired?
    5. I would myself take a class from Tzuriel, because he can teach me 4., in a way that It will be new for me.
    6. loyal, nerdy, honest; but when you’re not yourself, they say you’re melancholic, angry and bitter and that’s what you remember, because you tend to be pessimistic.
    7. Aren’t you hard on yourself?
    8. ?
    9. That’s a way…
