Reality Blog Award


The Questions:

If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I know it’s a lot to want to change… but I would change the conditions and the lives that unfortunate citizens are born into with no choice, people living in poverty, people who deserve a chance to a future and a life as lucky as all of ours, where we have really won the genetic lottery.
If you could repeat an age, what would it be?

Well being young only in my years so far (only 17 years) I don’t have many years to choose from… although it would be nice to go back to childhood and appreciate the simplicity of life back then – although this answer will most likely change over the years!
What is one thing that really scares you?
Anything happening to my family and friends
What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?
To help those who cannot help themselves – I hope so! Only the future will tell!
If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
I would be our dog – Stewie the border collie – I’ve always wondered what’s going on in that little head of his!
