Finally, we’ve reached the final set of the 36 Questions That Lead To Love series! So I suppose this is my last chance to make you fall in love with me if these questions actually work that way. Otherwise, I’m not sure why I’m even trying. *lol*
So now that we all are here, you’ve probably read my previous posts here and here. In that case, you’ve probably known me for a bit based on the questions asked in the previous set.
Are you still there? If yes, then let’s give it another try!
25. Make three true “we” statements each. For instance, “We are both in this room feeling … “
Well, it’s supposed to be a self-interview so there are so many things that ‘we’ have in common when it comes to this. But then I suppose I could make an exception for this, and refer to yall readers instead of myself.
We are both in the room probably feeling bored, that’s probably why I’m here writing this post while you’re there reading this random shit and trying to figure out why you’re reading it in the first place.
Chances are, we’re running out of ideas what to do next and that’s why I’m writing this while you’re probably getting here by accident hoping you’ll get some ideas on what to do next after you read this stuff. But will you?
Well, I suppose we’ll both see how it’s gonna be. 😛
26. Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share … “
Okay, so since I’ve got my parents to go to whenever I need some advice for life in general and also my siblings to talk to about almost everything, you might think that my life is practically complete right?
Not to mention that I’ve got so many good friends who actually accept me the way I am. Like they actually get that my humor could be so harsh sometimes, but they kinda just deal with it and move on because they still see behind that dark sense of humor, I could also be a relatively good friend at some point.
Does my life sound perfect to you? Well, yes. Almost.
Because I’ve been raised by a conservative Sundanese (and Muslim) mother who thinks that my life isn’t complete until I’ve become somebody’s wife.
And despite the fact that I’m not so sure whether I’m ready to have a husband, to begin with, I think it’d be great to actually have someone with whom I could share the rest of my life with. I mean, behind this crazy, ballistic girl, there’s a sweet woman who wants to be a good wife for her husband or a good mother for her kids.
27. If you were going to become a close friend with your partner, please share what would be important for him or her to know.
What would be important for you to know if you were going to become my close friend is that I’m someone who can be really expressive at times, while other times I can hide my feelings well enough. I mean, if you have a hard time to figure out, you’re not the one to blame. 😀
But then again, when I said I can be really expressive, some people might not be able to handle it because when I get mad, I’ll make sure that the person on the other side of the door knows what’s going on. I’ll yell at them, slash the door and swear if needed.
You think that’s hard to handle? Try to see me hiding my real feeling and then you’ll be welcomed to my jungle. 😛
28. Tell your partner what you like about them; be very honest this time, saying things that you might not say to someone you’ve just met.
Okay, it’s hard to answer unless we’re going for a date for real. Shall we keep it for our date later when you’re sure that you’re in love with me on the 36th question, perhaps? *lol*
29. Share with your partner an embarrassing moment in your life.
Okay, this is something so embarrassing that I have kept for so long and ironically, it also has something to do with Vietnam. Dammit, that country has so many memories!
You see, from Hanoi to Sapa I took the train right? Well, I got my period when I took the train and long story short I slept really well on the way to Sapa, almost for the whole trip. I slept so well that I just noticed that my period got all over the sheet when they told me that we’re reaching Lao Cai.
The only good thing was that we got a proper blanket so no one could really see how bad I made the bedsheet, and even better because I was wearing black jeans that day.
Long story short, I’ve failed as a woman. 🙁
30. When did you last cry in front of another person? By yourself?
The last time I cried in front of another person, I think it happened recently at McDonald’s on my way to Xtrans when Heri, my cousin took me and my brother before we were off to Jakarta and then Kuala Lumpur.
So basically, I cried because I got carried away when Heri told me some story about his late Mom, who’s also my late Aunt. I was the only girl that night, and I wasn’t too shy to cry while eating cheeseburger. 🙁
When was the last time I cried by myself? I honestly don’t remember, but I suppose it has something to do with my previous job, when I got so stressed out to the point that I thought I suffered a severe depression and I didn’t want to do anything but just die?
I mean, it really happened. So maybe that was the last time I cried by myself.
31. Tell your partner something that you like about them already.
Again, we should save this for later when we have a real date after the 36th question. *lol*
32. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?
This is hard to answer as I’m that kind of person who’s got this dark sense of humor that I find it hard to get offended by any kind of joke.
But then I understand if there’s anything not to be joked about, it’s something related to one’s insecurity.
I mean, I’m sure some people would probably choose things like religion or race or something else for the answer, but those are not the kind of things that I’ll get offended when someone joked about them. But when it comes to insecurity, it will take the offence in the personal level, and it could hurt somebody.
I think before you joke about something to someone else, you should be more vigilant about the person you’re talking to just so you can avoid any kind of misunderstanding.
33. If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet?
I think I’d regret the opportunity to thank my parents to get me this far. Why haven’t I told them yet? Because just like typical Asian parents, they’re not really into mushy stuff.
34. Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?
My laptop. Because nowadays, everything is in digital. And I’ve got almost everything in my laptop.
35. Of all the people in your family, whose death would you find most disturbing? Why?
God forbid, but I can’t imagine my sister’s death. I mean, we’ve grown up practically together. We share almost everything together. I can’t imagine a life without her.
Remember a few questions before this about the last time I cried in front of others? It was because I got carried away for the story of my Dad losing his sister. And I can’t imagine the same thing to happen to me.
A bit unfair, but that’s true though.
36. Share a personal problem and ask your partner’s advice on how he or she might handle it. Also, ask your partner to reflect back to you how you seem to be feeling about the problem you have chosen.
My personal problem is that now I’m only focusing on my therapy, and trying to get on with my business, I’ve got some difficulties to get my business to take off. And now things get a little too hard that I feel like I’ve lost my motivation to run my own business. What am I supposed to do?
But then at the same time, I’ve been quite productive to write lately that I’m sure I can make this useful for something or somebody. But then again, I can’t be too naive because this thing doesn’t earn me any penny. While at the same time, I could really use money as I have bills to pay and whatnot.
Things get harder, because now that I’m on the therapy for my bell’s palsy, I’m hesitant to accept any job offer as well. What am I supposed to do?
Okay, so that’s a wrap!
36 questions that lead to love, they said. But have them actually led you to love me now that you’ve read the whole sets of my answers? Are you like in for a further date after all of these?
Well, if so… You know how to hit me up. Drop me a comment below or you can always send me an email for a private session. *lmao*
