On Windy Days has been tagged

So. I’ve been tagged by Miss Addie from Betwixt and Between. At first, I had no idea what being tagged was. I just figured it was…actually I didn’t know what it was. Haha, but thanks for the tag! And I will try my best to answer the questions with something that will give a little more insight to who I am. So Addie, here you go.

But before we get down to business, here are the rules:

  1. You must post the rules.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
  3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
  4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

So now here are the things Addie wants to know about me:

1. What is the weirdest question you’ve ever been asked?

I’ve had quite a few…however I can’t seem to remember any of the good ones. But the most recent one that I had was of this man who wanted to know which High School I go to. Ok guy. I’m in college first of all. And does my university apparel not give enough clues as to where I go?? Well, I guess it’s a good thing that people think I’m younger than I am, better than it being the other way around.

2. Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward?

Whoo boy, well if I had a choice like that I would want to go back in time. I would give anything to see what I was like when I was little and from another point of view. I would also want to see my family as they were when they were together. I think it would have been a really peaceful setting. I wouldn’t choose to go forward in time because I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future and I would like to keep it that way. Keep it a little surprise, if you know what I mean.

3. What is your favorite late-night snack?

Ice cream. I love ice cream! But usually I don’t have the money to buy luxuries like that…Ima poor college kid!! One thing though, that ice cream may be the best thing as it enters my mouth but I feel like trash the next day. Nothing a little workout can’t fix though right?!

4. Tell us your weirdest dream.

I’ve had quite a few weird dreams. And this might be considered cheating…but this one takes the cake for the most recent weirdest dream:

I was Superman…for a second.

5. Describe the perfect date.

Hmm, well the perfect date huh? I think this perfect date would entail just a good evening of hanging out. I couldn’t care less about what we did but as long I was with that person, that would be perfect for me ;)

6. What song is stuck in your head?

as well as…

7. What is the best way to develop a positive attitude?

The best way to develop positive attitude is knowing that you are worth something. You may not know it, but there is always someone that looks up to you as an example. That one took me a while to figure out but knowing that I (out of all people) am a role model really changed my views on how I should conduct myself. Not only that but just appreciating all of the little things life throws at you. You could be in such a worse state than the one you’re in now. You could have to struggle to survive everyday, knowing that food is not always a guarantee, that the home you may have now at the moment could be a different place tomorrow. Just being able to read this post in your comfortable room/library/wherever you may be already puts you in the top percentage of the worlds population in terms of being in a comfortable living environment. Appreciate everything.

8. If you could invite four people-living or dead- to a dinner party, who would they be?

I would definitely want to invite Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., and Steve Carrell (for some comic relief). I think that it would be great to have living examples of leadership. I mean yea, I can read about them all I want but it would be a totally different/awesome experience to actually have a chance to talk to them. Especially Bruce Lee, I absolutely love the philosophies that he holds towards living life. Such a shame that he had to go way too early.

9. Who is your look-alike?

I’ve had a few people tell me that I look like Jet Li. Haha, which is pretty cool but I don’t see that much of a resemblance. However, I am a huge fan of Jet!!

My Hero!!

10. What is your answering machine away message? If you don’t have one, you can make it up!

beeeeep…”Hi there. This is Simon speaking. I’m home right now, and in a moment, I’ll have a decision to make. Leave your name and number and I’ll be thinking about it…” Hahaha.

11. It’s said that you learn something new every day. What did you learn today?

I learned that it’s good to take a break every once in a while. I’ve been just a little stressed this past week. Heck this past month. And I’ve actually had a chance just to relax a bit, talk with the family, hang with friends. You would be surprised how much something as little as that can help to pick you back up so that when the storm comes again, you’ll be ready.

Here are the people I would love to know more about! :

  1. Royal Bums
  2. The OC
  3. Barefoot Baroness
  4. olivianp
  5. bittercharm
  6. Maiya
  7. thacourtjester
  8. nocturnaldaydreams
  9. Sanchari
  10. purposefullyawkward
  11. demonsking19
 And last but certainly not least, to a very kind person:

And here are your questions:

  1. Well, since you’ve been tagged…that obviously means you have a blog. What led you to create it?
  2. What country are you from, and if you had the opportunity what country would you like to visit?
  3. If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
  4. What is the last book that you read, and did you enjoy it?
  5. What is the one greatest piece of advice that you have had the opportunity to receive from someone?
  6. If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. With whom would it be?
  7. If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
  8. If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title would be?
  9. How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
  10. Who has had the most impact in your life?
  11. (Hehe) And how did you first find this blog?

Well Addie, hopefully you enjoyed that! Those questions really took a bit of time to think about but great questions nonetheless :D

  1. This looks like so much fun. Will you give me a day or so to answer and do my part tagging forward?
    Thanks my friend for thinking of me. You’re pretty awesome.

  2. I like your answer to # 2. To go back in time is exactly what I would choose to do. I would stalk my mom from her being a little girl up to her giving birth to me. She died hours after that.

    Your #7 is notable. It’s just a very rare likelihood (in my case, to say the least) where you get to meet someone who adores you tenfold more than you do yourself and also because of something good you’ve done.

    I did enjoy reading your answers. I am so glad you participated and did not consider this as lame. I appreciate the effort. I guess I’ll just see you around, Jet Li. Uh, I mean Simon.

    • Oh, I am so sorry about your mother…that must be really rough. I didn’t think about that, but it would be really cool to see my parents as they were growing up. Just to see how different the world was back then, ya know?!

      And in regards to #7, we (especially me sometimes) always seem to hold ourselves to a lower standard than what we can accomplish, what we are capable of…Its good to know from others how much of an inspiration you are from time to time. Because you never know whose life you are impacting with every little decision you make.

      Haha, well I’m glad :) It wasn’t lame at all, I think its pretty cool! It really made me think about myself for a bit. And uh, I will see you around as well! :P

      • 2nd part: I love it! Thanks for those inspiring words! Sometimes I also feel the same way..
        Anyways, seems like I need more time to post this ‘being tagged’ thing, do you mind? I have to think of the eleven people whom I’d like to tag & my questions for them.. :D
        But that’s really kind of you to include me in your tag list. Thank you, Jet Li! hahah..

      • olivianp, I don’t mind at all! This one took a while for me to write, but also partly because I wanted to give full answers and not just one or two word ones :P And no problem. Your pictures always give me a glimpse into pretty sweet places. It’s a good escape from where I’m at now anyways…

  3. 5. Describe the perfect date.

    Hmm, well the perfect date huh? I think this perfect date would entail just a good evening of hanging out. I couldn’t care less about what we did but as long I was with that person, that would be perfect for me ;)

    Lol I’d ask you out if that’s the case. Ha ha! By the way, I just realized we have chose the same theme! I hope you don’t mind?

  4. Wow this was really fun to read! :) And I started thinking about the question 8, who would I have invited… Dalai Lama for sure, my grandpa who died ’92 and whom I miss often, Mack from Future Weapons and one of my youtube heroes. ;) That would be an interesting evening! People I look up to, and I could show them that I can actually cook if I put some effort in it… I have also a “negative” list of other 4 persons, but those I’d keep in separate sound-isolated rooms in my basement and “handle” one-by-one. Luckily for them most of them are already dead. People who really should have paid for their sins and who caused so much bad in the world. :(

    • Oh, one more thing…I wasn’t sure at first, but I want to open this up to you! You definitely don’t have to do it, but just let me know and I’ll throw your name up there. I just thought that maybe it’ll help take your mind off of a few things. Alright, anyways let me know! :DD

      • Oh that’d be really nice… :) I’d love taking part in this! I have been thinking a post to do which is positive, just haven’t had all too much positivity to share. Yesterday they once again sent me back home from first aid. No place free in hospital. I cried the whole way back home. I sat a while in snow in the cold and wanted to just lay down and die, but eventually came home anyway. Been sleeping a lot after that. So taking part in this “tagged” could be a reason to post something else than problems. Thank you for being there!! xx

    • Haha, alright! I can’t wait to see what you put down :D And no problem!

      Oh no way…hopefully you get that first aid. There will be better days for sure. I totally understand about the sleeping part. I just finished all of my tests today so now I’ll finally be able to sleep for a bit, for once haha. Go get some rest!

  5. Ah, man. Now how do I top this? Let me try my best and good looking for the tag, I guess it’s the only time I’m glad that I got tagged.

  6. This, ‘being tagged’ seems like a fun way to get back to blogging… thank you bud.

    • No problem! :D I know I had fun with it haha, so maybe you will too :P Anyways, hopefully you have a very worthwhile trip in Europe!

      • efforts of moving to Europe are becoming nightmarish by the day. :P its almost funny how they let my partner slip of the gates so easily and holding me up like a fugitive. anyhow i sure look forward to being there hopefully someday soon. I am still at loss of words and probably would need another day to come up with something as witty as yours… i and beginning to look forward to coming to wordpress again… you are funny dude, keep penning!

    • Ah, no way! It seems like security is pretty tight everywhere. I don’t blame them. But you’ll get there and it’ll totally be worth it!! I would give anything to be able to travel right now (Well, maybe not anything…I really like the peanut butter cup ice cream I have in the freezer at the moment :P) But it would totally be sweet to get out of here even just for a few days.

      Haha, and thank you! I will definitely try to stay funny for sure :P And definitely come back to WP!! :D
