It’s been a minute since I’ve done a SYW. Again, I blame being sad at the world and a basic ennui — despite my attempts to get out and face the scary world vis-a-vie getting a gym membership, I haven’t been really up to doing much of anything. Warning, dear reader, I’ve already taken my meds for the evening, so my mind is way woozy. I don’t know what’s possessed me to answer these questions right now, but here we are. As always, go to Melanie’s page to see what’s what with the questions. Without further ado, here are this week’s questions:
What activity instantly calms you? Nothing comes to mind. Stepping back from the situation, taking a couple of deep breaths and counting to ten might calm me down eventually, but nothing instantly calms me.
What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done lately? Getting the gym membership. I did think about it for a minute or two, but it really was kind of a spontaneous decision. I got a year membership, and I basically got a membership at the gym nearest to me because I honestly only need access to the treadmills and/or exercise machine. My goal is to eventually be able to walk the just under a mile to the gym. I mean if I can walk a mile on the treadmill, why not the mile to the gym? I think need to get my lungs in better shape first. Anyway, that was the most spontaneous thing I’ve done lately.
If people receive a purple heart for bravery, what would other color hearts represent? (Example yellow heart = cowardice) I’m not even sure why purple denotes bravery. I thought it was for royalty.
What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done or witnessed someone else do? I’ve been told that moving from one state to another with no job, no money, no plan, and no place to live is a pretty brave thing to do, and I did that all of the time. I don’t think it was brave. I just did it because I got tired of wherever I was living at the time. The bravest thing I saw someone do was a friend of mine saw a kitten in the middle of the road and she ran out in traffic to save this kitten. She almost got hit by a car. In both cases (her with the kitten and me with moving on a whim without a plan) I’m not sure if either of us were brave… or foolhardy.
