Friday’s five of fifty questions. plus pictures of elephants.

I’m at the Q Cafe. My latte is gone ( 🙁 ) and I have 1 hour and 19 minutes until they close. I brought a whole bunch of stuff to get done while I’m here, but so far all I’ve accomplished is putting “adopt an elephant” into Google, catching up on Twitter and charging my camera battery. The 5 questions I asked for the weekly 5 of 50 questions that will free your mind were BORING, so I’m going to put some pictures here, because everyone loves blogs with pictures.


As an early Christmas gift, my mom renewed my zoo membership. Since this has been the year of the elephant (Packy’s 50th birthday and the baby girl elephant born last week) I didn’t hesitate to choose the elephant window decal. Micah and I visited the zoo, knowing that we wouldn’t be able to see the baby girl.. but we did happen to meet BOB LEE while we were there. He’s the senior elephant keeper at the zoo and he is in EVERY ELEPHANT VIDEO the zoo puts out.

That’s the closest we got to seeing her. But soon… soon she’ll be named and ready to see us. and I promise you, I WILL CRY.

On to the questions.

6-10/50 of the 50 Questions that will Free Your Mind
6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

Anything involving people, coffee and the necessity to grow.

7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I am definitely doing what I believe in, because what I believe in means caring and loving people to the fullest capacity of my heart.

8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
It depends. I want to say I’d second guess myself less, but I wonder if a shorter life span would make me second guess myself MORE, as decisions would affect a larger percentage of my life.

9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
A large degree, because I love adventuring.

10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Probably doing things right. I worry a lot about being wrong or making a wrong choice, so I usually tend to cautiously step only where I feel certain the decision is right.
