Amy asked: "This is a three part question Essay, philosophy, and art.
Part one: First the essay - write a letter to your 12 year old self based on your life experiences and knowledge you have now. What advice would you give?
Relax. Don't take things so seriously. Stay away from boys; they are icky. Stop trying to be so perfect. You are going to make mistakes and you will survive them. Don't be afraid of trying things and failing; life goes on. Don't cry over your first A-; good grades are totally overrated and when you are older no one is going to care that you graduated with a 3.964. Don't graduate high school early. When you are 19, don't let your boyfriend drive your new car on the freeway. The most important thing for you to know as you get older: when you are in your late twenties, you will be asked to join a blog group that asks questions each week. You will be asked to write an essay; DON'T JOIN PSS!!!
Part two: Philosophy question in honor of Darwin- If a man evolved from apes and monkeys then why do we still have those animals around?
"If" a man evolved. What if he didn't?
We still have them around so Emma can call her stuffed monkey her "buckey" and have an animal to cuddle with at night.
Part three: Art question - What piece of music, art, architecture best represents your view of yourself?"
Music-That one song about that one girl by that one band.
Art-I like Garfunkel's elbow; it reminds me of mine.
Archecture-The dog house Marcus built for our dogs. It is a sight to be seen.
All right Amy, lay off the smart pills. That required way too much thought; I went way over my thinking limit today.
