2005 continues to be a special year for me for two reasons. Firstly, our family had to say goodbye to one of the most wonderful and amazing people I have ever shared the path with. Jessie Beaudin was only 78 when pancreatic cancer came to town and drew her away. I will never forget all the times she brought my sister and I downtown to do a bit of shopping, all the wonderful meals and card games, and all the love she brought to us. It was a very hard year for my Dad and especially for my Grandpa, and I know Grandma will be on my Dad's mind a fair bit this year. Secondly, around the time Grandma passed away, I was looking into taking a course at RRC. Mom saw I was getting tired of working the front end and she asked me if I'd ever thought of being a library technician. I applied and the rest is history.
So here I am at the tail-end of 34 and running through the deep questions. I've probably gone over such questions in my journals before and I probably have part-answers to them. Tonight I decided to draw up a quick list of 10 such questions. In no particular order...
- Would you rather be too tall (6'5 and up) or too short (5'0 and down)?
- Does your dream job match your current job?
- Do you remember your dreams in the morning?
- Assuming money and time were of no concern, would you rather have pets or kids?
- Do you re-read books? How often and why?
- Which is worse for you? High humidity or dry heat?
- Does the approach of death scare you?
- Do you (or did you once) keep a journal? Why did you give it up?
- Was there a birthday you were excited about or one that you dreaded?
- Do you yearn for the past or are you content with the present?
