Day 26 — Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
I think it's a fairly common thing for most teenagers to think "I bet if I just died no one would even care. I could just go away forever and leave all of this crap behind..." I probably did at one point. But I've never seriously considered anything like that. Even when thoughts along those lines have crossed my mind, I know deep down that life is too good to pass up on. I love living - I constantly dream of new experiences: travel, where I hope singing will take me, meeting the love of my life, taking my kids places, etc. Life can get hard, but I know it's worth it.
Day 27 — What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
I'm not planning on letting this ever happen to me outside of marriage, but if it does... first off, I would keep the baby. I would hope that the father would want to be a part of the child's/my life, especially through marriage, but if that's not the case, I have an amazingly supportive family and group of friends to fall back on. If for some reason it would be impossible for me to have the child as my own, I would place it up for adoption, but only with thorough knowledge of the people who would call my child their own.
Day 28 —What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Life? I guess? Kind of an odd question. I love where I am -- my family, my friends, school, singing, and my dreams. I mean, my summer job is less than desirable, but at least I have one. I can't wait to go into senior year and conquer both that and hopefully my graduate school applications. Getting through this year will most certainly be a feat for the ages! I'll list out my schedule sometime... it's a little scary. But life is good!!! :D
Wow just two more days to go!!! This went fast. While I have skimped a little bit on the every day part, I think answering all of the questions relatively in time is the most important part!
I'm off on a short trip this weekend -- excited to see some dear PLU friends! :)
