Sand In A Box Makes Me Think

Chalice, over at 'Sand In A Box' has given me the 5 thought provoking questions that she promised, and I want to share my answers with you all... Hope this is good, and you enjoy and maybe glean something out of it. :)
  1. If you could have your choice of a dream job what would it be and why?

    • I would say to be independently wealthy enough to not have to have a "profession". I would love to be able to spend my time working freely on web development work, maybe freelance and devote quality time to my music and get back to oil painting. I know we all have to "make a living" but all-too-often, we get too caught up in the professional day-to-day "J.O.B." and we don't devote enough time to sheer joy and ecstacy that we deserve in life. As yourself this question when you start to take things too seriously: "At the end of my life what would I regret more, not having "worked harder", or not having "enjoyed my family and my life" more? Material things are not so important... what makes you truly smile?

  2. You are given 1 million dollars to plan a Bloggers get-together. Tell us where, when and what your party is all about.

    • I would plan a week-long, as in 7-day 'retreat'. This would be sort of like camping out, but it would have all of the electronic amenities we're used to. I would love for it to be somewhere of course there was an internet connection-lol! Along with maybe a beach, and hot tubs etc. I would buy all the best sound equipment money could offer, and have all of our favorite bands and musicians there to make it fantastic! Everyone is invited to it, and it will go down in history as the best bloggers musical retreat ever!

  3. You can choose bloggers to spend 6 months locked in a house with. Who would these people be? Why would you choose them and what kind of place would this house be?

    • First off, the house would be probably Tiger Woods' house (if in fact, this is Tiger Woods' house-if not, whoever's house this is!). As far as who I would choose to join me in this 'lock-down', I have so many people that I really feel are precious from this blog community. I'm going to have to bring everyone from my sidebar blog links... I don't put them there if I don't think they're cool as hell! (Some of them are going to require serious amounts of alcohol though, so someone better help finance the liquor bill!!!)

  4. Tell us the most scared you have ever been in your life and what scared you so badly.

    • I'm going to have to say I have been the most scared in my life whenever my Father has had to go into the hospital with serious issues. This has happened on more than one occasion. He is diabetic, so there have been various problems. Once was his blood infection, he collapsed in the bathroom, and we were told that if we had gotten him there any later, it would have been too late. Then he had a pretty bad stroke, and then he had "Quad Bypass" heart surgery. There have been other health issues and all but those were the major ones where I was scared shitless we were losing him. I worry about it every day I think. He will celebrate his 80th birthday on August 29, so up until now my prayers have been answered. Losing a loved on is my biggest fear, then it is drowning I think next. :)

  5. If you could change one thing about your life what would it be and why?

    • I would definitely make myself more organized and more motivated to effectively accomplish the things I want to... I'm so scared my life will pass me by and I will be mad at myself for not doing the things I so wanted to do. Time is fleeting... Let's have no regrets!!! :)

Thanks Chalice for these great questions!
