1. Do you typically wake up feeling optimistic?
Most days, yes. I would not say that I am a particularly negative person. I do tend to stress about possible problems (even if they are highly unlikely) but as a rule I make a strong conscious effort to be a positive person.
2. Do you pursue your passions?
Physical passions yes. My sex life is one of the very few areas in my life that I am truly myself and don’t worry a lot about what other people think about me. Consequently I am very comfortable with pursuing activities and people who interest me.
3. If your life was affected by covid19 lockdowns/restrictions how have you pursued your passions during the pandemic?
I have spoken here quite a bit about the very minimal impact that Covid-19 had on life in general in Australia. Watching the impact on other people’s lives in other parts of the world has made me extremely grateful for this.
4. Is there a conversation you need to have with someone but you have avoided? Tell us the basic subject and your relationship to the person.
Nothing springs to mind right now. There probably is something. But I haven’t really had to deal with people in the real world for over six weeks now and things have not fallen apart so I guess it can wait.
5. Fill in the blank. When my partner is around I feel _____ .
I have spent the last six weeks on a boat with Mr Jones. Sure we have left the boat and gone ashore almost every day but I can put my hand on my heart and say that I have not been more than 100m away from him for six weeks 24/7. There have been days, not many but some, when we haven’t had a face to face conversation with anyone else.
Given all that I think for me the statement should read;
When my partner is NOT around I am going to feel, a little bit weird.
Bonus: Are you living in reality or a fabricated fantasy?
Currently my reality resembles many people’s fantasies.
Usually I am a realist. I don’t like to pretend that things are different than they are or that something is not going to happen the way it obviously will. When I am at work I am a high school teacher. Living in a fantasy world would end badly for me.
