A mixed bag today
What do you think of the idea of the ‘greater good’ principle?
I don’t agree with it at all. No one can or should play God. Make the right decision every time based on morals and ethics. No one should be deciding who should benefit or who should suffer. Each decision or judgment call should be made on principles, not opinions.
Do you enjoy riding a roller coaster or other amusement park type ride?
Would you believe that I haven’t done so, ever. If offered a chance I will perhaps like to take a ride but it will depend on how high or torturous the ride is.
Which musical instrument is the most annoying to you personally?
Cymbals! Their noise irritates me and when they are played insistently, it just goes beyond what I can tolerate.
Would you rather have a vivid imagination or a photographic memory if you had to choose just one?
I used to have both. The photographic memory was such a useful asset when I was a student. One reading was enough for me to know what was in the text book.
The vivid imagination, however came with several drawbacks. In a space of few moments, I could imagine the worst sort of scenarios happening.
I didn’t choose but nature chose for me. The memory has faded to become less than average and the imagination has been toned down per force. I cannot afford to be always imagining the worst case scenario all the time.
GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)
Feel free to share fun plans for this season that you might have. Especially now that many places are lifting restrictions and travel is a bit easier.
We are planning to go away for a few days to the capital city, Islamabad. My younger brother lives there. We plan to relax there, do some sightseeing and just take a break. I maybe posting less if we are busy having some adventure there.
