I choose to go with the plain questions, as I am not a fan of the Harry Potter author,lol. She makes me feel physically ill.
Would You Rather Live 120 Years That Are Comfortable But Boring, Or Live Half As Long, But Have An Exciting Adventure Packed Life?
I think I would like to live the 120 years, but boring life. Nothing wrong with boring, as long as well though, I live alright into my 120 years. No point if I’m a vegetable or something.
What’s Something That Overwhelms You?
Twitter can sometimes overwhelm me. I start to realise after a bit, that I am just on it a bit TOO much. Then when I hop off of it, I feel so much better and then for the first couple of weeks, I don’t really go on…Then something always sucks me back in.
What Do or DID You Take For Granted?
I try not too, and I can’t remember the last time I did. But I think the thing I take mostly for granted is probably time. It has a lot to do with fear. Fear of myself, fear that I will fail. I guess in that way I take time for granted, no one is guaranteed the next day. I really have to get over my fears.

17. Things I have taken for granted.
Oh gosh, where do I even start with this one? Do I start from the beginning of my life, or do I start with random thoughts I have about taking things for granted. Do I write about what I’ve taken for granted in the last week?
When I was younger I took for granted that everybody would just “like me”. Not even because I was spoiled in anyways or was a spoiled child, but just simply because I liked everybody else. So surely, that’s just the way the world worked? UNTIL I got to Year 6 when I first experience bullying and I had no idea how to cope. The worse part of it was one of my bullies was someone who had been my best friend, just a couple of years beforehand. You know something though, a part of that “naivety” has still stayed with me (being friends with everyone). Unless you give me a reason to “hate you” I will consider us “friends”. Even if you date one of my friends and they break up, if I’ve gotten on well with that ex-partner, I still consider them a “friend”. Unless they hurt my friend.
I think that I took being a kid for granted, just that freedom that can comes with being a child. Just being able to fob things off, not having many responsibilities, seeing the innocence in basically everything. It’s like that saying “Why do we want to grow up so fast?”.
I think what I’ve taken most for granted though, is just feeling safe. I used to feel safe all the time and I never realise what a plus I had it. I heard a great saying “We have learned our rights, but not the responsibility”. We talk about freedom of speech, free to be who we are, but at the same time, people with so much hate in their hearts, talk about having the same rights. Those hateful people make me fear more than anything, because they fear things that are basically made up in their minds. For example, there’s a Facebook page called “Ban Sharia Law in Australia” …. Except it is banned and very unlikely to ever become law in Australia, unless in some sort of alternate reality.
