Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.
I wish to be myself for I can’t be anyone else. I am going to strive to be a better me in 2018 God’s willing as I continue to live for Him.
Thank goodness we’ve come to the end of this challenge! It started off well, but then I lost interest somewhere in the middle when the prompts became repetitive. Nevertheless, I thank you for sticking around and even joining me during some of the prompts.
You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Share your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?
What’s the best idea you’ve ever had? Regale us with every detail of the idea — the idea itself, where it came to you, and the problem it solved.
The only thing that comes to mind right now was an idea I had for a library display project which did not involve problem-solving. I know I answer these prompts half-heartedly, but I don’t like starting something and not finishing it, even if my heart isn’t in it anymore.
You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?
Yes! Yes! I’ll do away with arithmetic, but the reading and writing stays! Kidding. We need numbers to survive. 🙂
My school would bring the focus back to God and His word because younger people are growing up in an entertainment world that is telling them how to think instead of using the brain that God gave them. Taking the Bible out of schools was a major problem for this caused many to reject His word.
Classes would be smaller in size.
We would not be reading every classic literature because most of them are forgotten and not it’s not to everyone’s taste. When I used to attend school, they made us get literature by Shakespeare, but we never got around to reading it. Not that I’m complaining; I was happy to dodge this bullet.
You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?
This question is getting rather old now. I’ve answered it like, a million times this year! I’ll make it rain! Whoo!
Joking! Joking! But my answer is going to be somewhat different than the ones I usually give. Lately, I’ve been looking at how the world is going downhill and I sometimes find myself wondering if there is a way for me to disappear off the face of the earth. I know it’s impossible, but I’ll probably change my name and erase my history, and live off the grid like Jack Reacher.
Tell us about a time you’d been trying to solve a knotty problem — maybe it was an interpersonal problem, a life problem, a big ol’ problem — and you had a moment of clarity when the solution appeared to you, as though you were struck by lightning.
I’ve had a few moments like these, but I was struck by divine inspiration, not lightning. I’m bored of these prompts. Can you tell? I’m glad that it’s almost over for my heart is not in it anymore.
December 23rd: The guilt that haunts me
Share a time when you were overcome with guilt. What were the circumstances? How did you overcome your guilt?
I don’t deal well with guilt at all. I tend to feel bad and I must apologize before it consumes me whole.
December 24th: The best day ever
You get to enjoy the best day ever — describe in detail what that means to you. Where are you? What will you do? What’s the weather like? What will you eat? Who will you see?
Why does this feel more like an interrogation than an actual prompt?
Anyways, I’ll humor today’s prompt. I’ll be on my French trip with close family and friends. We’ll do sightseeing, take in a Ligue 1 match, and try to impress locals with our French (although I’ve read that the French prefer to speak in English to foreigners to impress them with their English. Oh well!) The weather would be fine, but humid, because one can never predict a French summer! We’ll eat croissants, fine chocolate, macarons, eclairs, and bite off the end of piping hot baguettes.
More like, best week ever, but who’s asking? 😛
December 25th: I was here
You are the first astronaut to arrive on a new, uncharted planet. Write the note that you leave to those who come after you.
