- You've had a really, really rough few months. What's gotten you through it with your sense of humor and faith in yourself intact?
Just a rememberence that life is dynamic, and always changing. Just as some good things did not last. The bad things will not last either. So basicly, enjoy it while you've got it. And look forward to when you will have it again, when you don't have it.
- Are you where you want to be in life right now?
Hmmm... Unemployed. Living with my parents. Single. In debt. No friends living close by. Nope, I don't think I'm exactly where I would like to be.
- What do you see yourself doing in three years?
Hopefully well employed. Living near friends. And possibly even in a relationship.
- What are your spiritual beliefs?
[WARNING: Very much just following my flow of thought.] First and for most. Believe in yourself. I often feel that people turn to religion because they lack faith in themselves. But beyond that, I do not believe in a god as a great sentient being. I think of god as a personification of infinity. Through time, people have looked back into the past, and forward into the future, as far as they can grasp. As soon as they reach their limit, they label anything beyond their grasp as a mythical realm of "gods work". We live in an infinite universe. With it being infinite, there are infinitie posibilities and opertunities. At some point at some place in the universe anythat and everything will happen at least once. Look that the formation of life. If you look at earth by it's self, the odds of spontanious life are very slim. But if you spread those odds over the whole universe, it becomes very likely that life would just occur. One f the hardest things for humans, even me, to grasp is that the universe (or at least it's matter and time in general) has no beginning or end. In a way, science is a religion also. We know all the matter in the universe was packed into a tiny symetrical ball, then it exploded creating the big bang. Where did this matter come from? Why did it blow? These are matters of faith. So, I suppose, if I were to believe in a god, beyond they infinity sense, I would take the clock maker view. A clock maker builds a clock, winds it, and walks away. Perhaps a god created the original universe mass, and caused it to blow up. It had to come from somewhere, and we will likely never know where, so if saying god did it, makes people feel better, more power to them.
- What do you think is your greatest failing, and how might you turn it to a strength?
My greatest failing. I have very little self motivation. I am often obsessed with the interest of the moment, then forget about it a month later. I'm not sure that can be made into a strength. It generally means I start a lot of things, but very little get's done.
