Participant Six // Final Survey
Why do you want what you want?
On the most basic level what I want (or at least what I’m starting realize what I need is) perpetual motion/change and at the same time I’m craving stability. I suppose I want that because I find I’m happy as long as I’m in motion on a creative level and I love the stability of familiar feeling all at the same time. Maybe I already have what I want?
How are the things around you relating to one another?
This is a weird question because I’m really not sure what ‘things’ refers to. I’ve got a dog and a cat and they get along and sometimes for only brief moments they get into an actual scuffle but they definitely know better than to fight and stop right away and sometimes they engage in this funny play wrestle thing,
The water or the earth?
Water mostly but part of me wants the Earth. I feel like they both symbolize two different people.
Do you have any medical conditions?
I feel like I have two very different people inside me sometimes but not in a weird way.
Have you ever had a near death experience?
Possibly, the first was on a motorbike. I was riding with my dad and brother for maybe the 2nd or 3rd time and I had fallen behind them because I really wasn’t all that great at riding my bike yet. Anyways they had stopped and started talking about which part of the desert we would head out to, since they had both been out riding together pretty frequently. I finally caught up and stopped as they had both started their bikes again and taken off. So I tried starting my bike up, this was something I was not comfortable with yet ha, I accidentally started the bike up in second gear. I was facing a wired fence and my bike was thrown into the wires at the top speed of 2nd gear only after I had been riding along the fence long enough to hit one of the poles. I smashed my face into it and was left on the ground with my bike just totally out of comission. Thank god I was wearing a helmet.
When will you leave for where you are going? Will you come back?
I plan on leaving to Los Angeles to kind of experience a real city in January. I don’t plan on coming back anytime soon but I already feel like no where else will feel like home.
How many life goals have you had?
Dozens? Hundreds? ha, I feel like my life goals are always expand. I pretty much look at every goal as a life goal though.
Describe your last conversation?
My last conversation was with a friend. He asked me if I wanted to go over to his girlfriends house and try and come up with something to do but I declined because I knew I would just go over there and it would be about as entertaining as being here. Plus I guess there are better things that I should be doing besides hanging out all day (i.e. this survey)
What is the next step?
To practice enough different things to really find out what I do best and then do that the best I can.
Are these surveys?
No, they’re questionnaires. I feel like most surveys I’ve ever filled out have been simple answers. Maybe these are even the loosest version of essay questions. No matter what they are I feel like I’ve really grown from doing this and I always look forward to getting them as well as seeing what you make at the end of the week. I hope you do more projects like this in the future.
