Proust Questionnaire

Tagged: Proust Questionnaire

What is your idea of prfect happiness?  
Being 110% happy with who I am, without a man, or a family or even friends. I just want to stand on a mountain top, which I climbed myself with out anyones help. I want to stand at the top of the mountain and look around and see the world that God has made and just praise him.

What is your greatest fear?
Needles. I hate needles. I cant event stand seeing them on TV. I go weak in the knees and my stomach turns over whenever I think about them.

Which figures do you most identify with?
People who are younger then I am. I like remembering what life was like at their age, what I was like. I feel like I can relate because I've been there.

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
I worry about everything. I try and act like things don't ruffle my feathers, but in truth they do. I am very conscious of everything I say, do, wear, see, and I am always wondering what others are thinking about me.

What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Bad grammer and verbiage. When you speak it says a lot about you. So when you use horrible grammar I just cringe. I am always correcting people's grammar. I hate when they say "well when I write I use good grammar" you should always use good grammar!

What do you most value in your friends?
I really really appreciate loyal friends, friends who love you no matter what, in spite of your weirdness or your bad decisions. I have to admit I dont have many loyal friends, most seem to fade away when things dont go their way, which is hard, but Im learning to let them go.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

What is your favorite journey?
The one I'm on right now, the journey from birth to death. Someone famous said, its not about the destination, its about the trip. I couldnt agree more.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
patience. I dont have any so I think its overrated.

What is your favorite occupation?
I want to be the president of The University of Michigan :) and I want to work at Disney, and teach in Australia, and be a mom. I have a LOT of goals, I just need to pick one and stick to it right now.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Thats easy, my weight. I was always a bigger kid, but after the burn I gained 100 lbs in 7 months, & I just stopped taking care of myself. Im trying to do better and take care of myself, but I'm lacking the motivation. I need to just bite the bullet, join and gym and make myself go, but I havnt.

What is your greatest regret?
Dating Chase for as long as I did, I wish I had been stronger, I wish I had left him, I wish I had stood up to his abuse. But now Im stronger for it, so I try and think about it like that.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
I havnt met the who yet, I know that for sure. What would be my happy memories. I have a hard time sometimes, I feel worthless and sad, and I just cant seem to see the light, but then I see a happy photo, or smell something that reminds me of the good times, and I see the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. 
When and where were you happiest?
This is a very hard question for me. I think it was a few summers ago, I was a camp counselor. I was with my girls, we were rafting down the Nanahalia river in NC and I stunk (no shower in like 3 days) but it was perfect weather and we had so much fun.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I was less co-dependent. I wish I was braver, more willing to strike out on my own.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Graduating from college, it took me 5 years, 2 schools and a million pieces of paper but I did it :)

This is my favorite response! I like the strangest things...

Also, never fear: you are not the only one who is completely unmotivated to work out. =/ I have all day to go our for walks, or do stairs, and I don't. I even got a yoga DVD, and I have only done it once. I even have access to a gym and classes offered there, but I don't go. (Although, being preggo, I wouldn't do gym stuff right now unless it was prenatal stuff.) I can def. tell my body is getting weak because of my sedentary lifestyle, but I can't get motivated to DO anything about it. It's so very frustrating!
