I probably don't think so. As a 15 year old I probably wouldn't perceive the way I turned out as cool. All I really gave a toss about was going out and getting drunk, and copping off with the fittest girl who was around. I was also really into rugby. I don't think seeing myself now, engaged, working long hours, rarely going out on the piss and not playing rugby anymore is what I wanted to be doing in ten years time.Matt wrote:Road infrastructure, it's a fornicate mess.
If you met your past self (10 years younger) would he/she be happy with how you turned out?
I know it's a cliche question, but it's a good one IMO. Gets people to think.
I think this is a tricky question as the things that define me are fluid and in a constant rolling state of evolution. I suppose you could say my experience defines me; the way I think is altered by experience; the experience of raising children has changed the way I think; experience of travelling and different cultures has changed the way I observe the world, this experience is constantly developing; my actions have been altered by experience, in the past i'd let chances slip, rather than grabbing them with both hands; experience has opened my mind, and also closed it in other aspects, but these closed doors could be opened in the future dependent on experience. Experience has honed my musical taste, and also made it more eclectic. Experience has developed my political views and my social conscience, but experience could change this in the future. Experience has given me control over my actions and allowed me to put my hands up and accept full responsibility when I fornicate things up. Experience has allowed me to accept that sometimes everyone fornicate up, not everybody, if anybody, is perfect. I am who I am, because of my experiences. Experience is the sculptor, and i am a raw piece of rock, experience is chipping away, sculpting the person that I am. When this sculpture will be finished, is anybodies guess. I am hoping it will be the day that I day. I would hate to end up one of those close-minded people who are never open to change. They know what they know, and nothing, nor anybody is going to change that. I like the fact that the person I am is constantly evolving. It means that I am becoming a better person with everyday that passes. The things that define me are a work in progress, because of that i am without definition.Leftbank wrote:Walked home alone at 2 in the morning after a party. Got mugged by three Asian guys. They beat me around a bit (black eye and chipped tooth) and put a knife to my throat. Lost my wallet, phone, coat and glasses. Consequence is that I am not so damn stupid at the end of a night out, and I'm always that little bit extra vigilant.
What defines you?
Don't bottle things up and try to do everything on your own. It will kill you. Reach out for help when you need it.t.d. wrote:

Really had to think about this one. Not to say I'm hard as nails or whatever, rather because I don't tend to watch these films. A couple of scenes in The Return of the King, The Road, and now I'm struggling to remember. I had to be consoled when I was a kid when we went to watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame. THEY WERE THROWING TOMATOES AT HIM. Here I go again...I cried throughout The Reader but that's because I had wasted £10 on a cinema ticket.Dante wrote:Shapeshifting, so that I could constantly appear different.
And to answer Sia, that's tough, but just because of the mood I'm in right now, Ric Flair, so that I could have the greatest wrestling career in the history of pro wrestling. That will probably change tomorrow though.
Oh yeah, a question. What film/tv show moment will always make you well up?
