#239: What do you think about when you lie awake in bed? There’s an e-card that compares a woman’s mind to a browser with 2,857 tabs open, and I think it’s pretty darn accurate. Work, tomorrow, yesterday, chores, a book I’m reading—all of this and more shoots through my mind. At high speed. Simultaneously. I actually find the psychology of type A personalities to be very interesting, because what allows you to be incredibly successful is also incredibly crippling!

#240: What’s something most people don’t know about you? That I write! Unless they read my blog or are a very good friend, I don’t talk about it. I’m too nervous!

#241: When you have a random hour of free time, what do you usually do? Read!

#242: What makes you weird? I talk to my cat. But what pet parent doesn’t?

#243: If you could relive yesterday what would you do differently? Sleep more…I never sleep enough on the days I work.

#244: What do you do over and over again that you hate doing? Uh…go to work? Seriously, though, I have a problem with doing things that I know I’ll regret later, like eating too much dessert or staying up too late reading. Nothing hugely serious, but I do wish I had better self-discipline.

#245: Would you rather your child be less attractive and extremely intelligent or extremely attractive and less intelligent? I think this is a trick question, because of course everyone wants their child to be intelligent, yet I also know that being less attractive can cripple your ability to do anything with that intelligence if you have low self-worth, are too shy, etc. Anyway, I don’t intend to have kids. But I wonder what those of you who do have/intend to have kids think: would you hope for an average balance, or would you hope it skewed one way or the other? Why or why not?

  1. I’d pick intelligence, BUT THEN I believe basically everyone is born with the ability to be intelligent (unless they have a mental disability) and it depends on how much you cultivate it. hehh. But it’s sad that it’s true that being “ugly” can inhibit your life SO MUCH because of society. *Sigh*
    I’M A PET PARENT TOO AND TALK TO MY DOG.

    1. THAT’S BECAUSE ATTICUS IS ADORABLE AND SHOULD BE TALKED TO ALL DAY LONG!!!! I would love to get a puppy but right now life is just too busy to give a new pet proper attention. :(

  2. Of course I talk to my pets and bunnies as well. I often wonder what people would think about me if they could actually hear me. :) The last question is tricky. Of course I would want my kid to be intelligent but it’s the sad truth that beautiful people often have it easier. But I guess I would choose my kid to be slightly more intelligent than attractive. :)

    1. I’m sure people would think we need to get out more! But I don’t care, pets are sometimes the best to talk to–they don’t judge or interrupt. :)
