“Not just s’more stories, but conversations.”
Catch your attention? That’s right my friend Thom and I are bringing something to blogging that’s out of the ordinary; we get to be apart of something that Thom calls “an experiment in social psychology.” Sounds like a huge deal? It’s actually even cooler then it sounds. What we’re encouraging you to do is ask questions of each other; deep and quirky questions. None of this 25 things you don’t know about me business (we’ll leave that to Facebook).Hopefully these questions we’ll inspire conversation and get us thinking. This goes beyond an interview, guys it get’s personal, but in a good way. The best way to explain this is to show by example. Here are the questions I asked Thom from Ransom Note. They’re beautifully and thoughtfully answered (sorry to sound so girly Thom).
What relationship is the most important to you at this point in time?
I had to think about this one for a few minutes. It’s hard to say which relationship I consider most important to me right now. I think about what’s important to me in general, trying to find my way into a new career and likewise a new life. Hence, the most important relationship would be the one that gets me to that point.Then I think about which relationship I would drop everything for. All things the same, my most important relationship would probably my parents; the people I rely on for emotional and professional support.
Do you have an idea of what your destined to become? Yes, what is it? No, why not?
I was actually having this conversation with my brother the other day, namely if I believe in destiny. We had decided that we believe in a sequence of events that are beyond control, which could be interpreted as fate or destiny. That said, it’s really hard to admit what i think the future holds for me. I hope there’s love, adventure, and success. My horoscope say I’ll be severing a tie to the past soon. Hopefully that leads somewhere.
If you could be on only ONE social networking/media site what would it be and why?
That’s a tough one. If I had to choose a networking site, it would be Linkedin. It’s the one that’s been the most helpful recently. Social media site- I would choose either Stumbleupon or Hulu. One is great for catching up on the shows I’ve missed, the other is fun to use to discover interesting sites. I’ve found some pretty helpful things in the past as a result of Stumbleupon.
When you’re people watching (c’mon we all do it) who catches your eye?
I like watching people that see like they have a great back story. There’s a older Asian man that walks around my neighborhood every day at the same time in the afternoon. He’s never with anyone, but looks as if he used to make this trek with someone in the past, and now it’s more a force of habit.
I image years ago, this man really didn’t like going for walks, but his wife did, who was never very good with directions. She would get confused sometimes. So like any good husband, he walked with her. Accept one late afternoon, he and is wife got in a fight, and he refused to walk with her. Saving face, she left to go walk by herself. An hour or two past and she still wasn’t back which worried him a bit. By 9:00, the man thought enough was enough and went out to look for her. He walked the usual route, but could find her. It was around 10:30 before the man got back home where he saw two police officers standing at the door of their little apartment. It was dark and his wife was crossing the street when a car turned the corner into their neighborhood. Being a petite lady, the car couldn’t see her until it was too late. Now, the old man walks that same route with his head down kind of as his own person albatross.
I have stories like this for a few people around the neighborhood.
Superwoman or Cat Woman?
I’m a cat woman fan. She has a better story, better costume, plus I like brunettes. I like how all the Batman characters are aspects of himself; like the Penguin is a millionare gone bad, the Joker is the antithesis of Batman. Cat Woman would be the feminate form of Batman. That’s cool to me.
I felt this commercial depicted something “catching on fire,” in this sense it being Lance Armstrong and cycling. So want to join the Campfire Network, answer some questions like these and more importantly ask questions like these, well then in the words of Nike; “Just do it.”
