dont give up until you drink from the silver cup ... you never know until you try

If you could go back and live one month of your life over again, which one would it be? Why did you choose it?

When you are ninety-five years old, what will you want to say about your life?

Do you trust others easily?

1) I'd probably relive one of the 4 months in my study abroad trip. It was glorious and some of the best experiences I ever had.

2) That I lived life the way that I wanted to, and did what I said I was going to.

3) I used to, but not anymore. It takes a lot for me to trust someone, and it takes very little for me to lose that trust and never get it back again.

1. I don't actually need to relive a whole month. Just one day. January 27, 2005. I'd live it almost exactly the same way, except that in my acting class, I'd keep my knee away from the guy who ran into me and shredded my ACL.

2) ... ... ... ...
(The women in my family live into their 90's, but only the early 90's. Hopefully by 2062 I'll be taking a well-earned dirt nap.)

3. Yes and no. I assume people are generally good-hearted and intelligent, and I keep my own private business to myself so they don't have opportunities to hurt me by being otherwise.

I'd relive the month after I broke up with The Evil One. I spent a lot of that really depressed, and I would also have started my LASIK/dental surgery/toenail surgery a LOT sooner than when I actually did it!

I'd like to say my life was only just beginning - as they'd just found the secret to longevity that week!

I do tend to trust easily from the get-go - and if that get's broken, I'm almost impossible to get to retrust that person.

Funny, Higgy, that you would choose that. I would pick the month after my best/first girlfriend broke up with me, first yr of college. I spent too long twisted from that, and a do-over would have saved me (and several women) years of misery and frustration.
By the time I'm in my 90's, I sincerely hope I'm beyond worrying about what others might say about me.
I'm generally pretty trusting.

A whole month? I'd like to relive my trip around Greece and Italy being waited upon by hunky semi-nekkid males. Oh, wait.. that didn't happen.. weeeellll, if I could go back knowing what I know now, I'd like to be 8 and go back and put a stop to a situation that caused a lot of grief for my family.

I hope I'll still be able to think at all.. I have a 50% chance of developing Old-Timers Disease by then... If my mind is in one piece, then I don't give a toss what anyone thinks. It'll be 2069 and I'll be able to whip the crap outta them with my laser whip.

On the surface, yes. For the big things, not so much.

this is going to sound really corny and gay - but with the way my life is going right now - i would want to live this month over and over and over again - just to keep me smiling day in and day out. i want to relive the month of june of 2005. the month that i met my very best friend! the one that made me smile from day one, the one that keeps me smiling when i need it now, the one that gives me hugs when i need it, and the love of my life.....i wish i could relive that month - pretty bad right now!

i would want to be able to speak about my adventures of traveling the world - seeing the different countries - talking about the failures that i faced in life and how they made me a stronger person in the end - and be able to say it all with a healthy smile....

unfortunately, i do - and i get burned everytime. you would think that after being burned as many times as i have - that i wouldn't get into the same boat - but somehow i climb back into it and it hurts ten times worse than the first time....

I can't pick a month that I'd go back and relive because I know there's an even better one that still hasn't arrived.

At ninety-five, I want to be able to say that i did the best I could with my life and that my regrets are few.

Yes, because I can't fathom why someone would intentionally hurt another.
