Bullet your whole day.
Put your iPod on shuffle and write 10 songs that pop up.
I’m scared. Here goes.
OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. My music selection is 10x better than this list even dares to suggest.
Discuss your first love and your first kiss.
Not that I was ever ‘in love’ with Steve (well, not in a mature healthy way), but he was the first person I dated that I found hard to get over. I had a semi-long term relationship in between when we first dated and when we started seeing each other again wen I moved back to Sydney… We used to go out sometimes and get drunk together for no reason, up until just before I started seeing my current boyfriend.
Basically it didn’t really go anywhere - there was something a bit off but I could never really put my finger on what that was exactly. Maybe we were almost good fit but not quite. Maybe he was a bi of a douche with a lot of issues. Maybe I was. Also, my mum and some of my friends didn’t really like him even though we moved in the same circles for a while. I dunno… I think about him sometimes but he’s not a facebook kinda person and it would feel weird messaging him again to say hi, so I’ve kinda left it.
My first kiss was a girl I knew at school, after the formal while some of us were hanging out at her house. It was absolutely terrible and spontaneous and we were probably drunk but I’d waited for so long I wanted it to be memorable and a girl first kiss is a pretty good story. Wouldn’t do it again though. Girls are terrible kissers in my experience. Except me of course. I’m really good. Hahahahahaha.
How you hope your future will be like.
Um, who wrote these questions?! Oh well, I’m committed now.
I’d settle for happy. I’m not really one to dream too seriously about this sort of thing.
Wanna make God laugh? Tell him your plans.
Even when things end badly, there are radiant moments or experiences with failed loves that are permanently written into one’s history. Strawberries. Whenever they came into full season in spring, she remembered the day he brought her the strawberries. They were meeting at two and then driving out into the country. She’d had a harried morning in town. Her head was full of irrelevant stuff and tizzy when his car pulled to the curb in front of her. Reaching forward, she opened the door without thinking. She just wanted to be sitting still for the first time in hours, moving towards the country and silence, away from this. She needed a few seconds to grasp what was on the passenger’s seat. Beige and bright bursting red, it was a rectangular wooden box filled with three pounds of the fattest, ripest strawberries she had ever seen. They were so big, so red and sensuous, particularly against the mocha brown of the wood, that she was mesmerized. It took moments to return to the world around her. Only then did she look at him. He was grinning, thrilled that his surprise had been such a hit with her. “I saw them at a roadside stand and couldn’t resist. We’ll eat them on the way out to the country.” And they did.
Things turned ugly between them later, very ugly. But like some kind of lovely curse, after that day she could not see strawberries without thinking of him.
A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life.
Maybe the most recent was in Oslo. We’d taken a ferry out to a peninsula for dinner and while I was waiting for the food to arrive I had a moment of clarity where despite my hurt foot, despite the craploads of money we were spending, despite my concerns about my career, despite the unknowns in our future… I felt really contented with our lives. And I felt lucky to be living it.
I guess the best part is that these moments aren’t rare for me now. I’m in a good place.

Traits of a Scorpio
Ok so my theory is that you can read another person’s horoscope and there will be bits that apply. But that list was weirdly accurate about some parts.
