My Answer for 10 Quick Questions. What are Yours?

Tonight, I found out about a very inspirational Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) series called Player’s Own Voice, where athletes, or those involved with athletics, talk in-depth about something grouped by these topics:

In each article of many, is a feature called 10 Quick Questions, where the interviewee is asked the 10 questions below for quick answers, rather than deep thought and recollection, with chance to revise before submitting. These are a pretty good collection of questions to give a fair representation of someone’s mind, unlike a lot of stupid quizzes you see these days!

  • The best book you’ve ever read?
  • Must-listen Podcast?
  • Best advice you ever received?
  • If your life was a movie, what would it be called?
  • What word or phrase do you overuse?
  • What is a skill you wish you had?
  • What’s something no one would guess about you?
  • If you could have the ultimate influential dinner party, who are the six people you’d invite?
  • What makes you cry, every time?
  • What’s the next goal you want to accomplish?

I LOVE this sort of stuff, much more for being able to get a strategically random glimpse into someone’s mind rather than to contemplate my answers. However, for the experience, I put myself through it. My answers are below but I’d LOVE to know yours if you were so kind as to share in the comments, or on your own blog with a link to this post for me to know.

If you answer those 10 questions in any way, publicly or not, please do it before you read my answers because no matter whose answers you read before doing something like this, they are bound to influence your answers in some way. The influence might be to steer you down a different thought path you might not have taken independently, rather than agreeing with some answers to incorporate into yours, but it’d still be influence. Thank you.

Switching my Inner Critic Voice from Dr Phil to Simon Cowell

I am my biggest critic. I am also my biggest supporter. How I think through life, though, is not solo, like a soliloquy or contemplative thought. Rather, it is conversational, with soliloquy like speeches. It’s technically a soliloquy since it’s myself to whom I am speaking, though, more technically, it’s some alter ego to whom I am speaking that will engage in conversation with me. You figure it out what it actually is because I don’t particularly care. 🙂

Sing Happy Birthday to Your Facebook Friend Instead of Writing It

Recently, I realized that with my Facebook app, I could send 60 second voice messages to others rather than having to type out things. That’s quite convenient, actually, and I am learning to use it more. However, I also thought of another use for it, and that’s for birthday greetings!

I have started singing Happy Birthday to my friends (and family, which I’ll include in “friend”) using this feature to send to them for their birthdays, instead of simply writing Happy Birthday on their walls, maybe with a few other words.
