Yes, several

29 Have you ever been so drunk you threw up?

Only twice

30 Have you ever fallen out of love with someone?

Yes. 

31 Have you ever met someone who changed you?

Yes. That’s what relationships do though. They either change you for the better or for the worse but we always change. It’s part of our life experience. Without change, we don’t grow. Without growth, we don’t evolve and without evolution, we don’t become who we are meant to be.

32 Have you ever been in a situation where you found out who your real friends are?

Definitely

Yes

Yes. I was young and dumb. I’m older and wiser now.

No

No. Unless it’s Eliza Dushku, (Faith in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer). Now she’s one I’d consider 😉

41 Have you ever done something you regret?

Yes but again, in hindsight, I needed to learn the lesson

42 Have you ever had a threesome?

No. Not my thing.

43 Have you ever embarrassed yourself in public?

Yes.

Yes, definitely

45 Do you believe in God?

Yes but my beliefs are complicated

46 Do you believe in yourself?

Most of the time

47 Do you believe in Santa Claus?

I believe in what he represents, so yeah

48 Do you believe in ghosts?

Absolutely!

49 Do you believe in aliens?

I do. Our universe is just way too big for there not to be other lifeforms somewhere out there. 

50 Do you believe in miracles?

Definitely! 

51 Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?

I do! 

52 Do you believe in love at first sight?

I consider myself a humanist if I am going to label myself anything.

55 Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

Pro-choice

56 Do you have strong political beliefs?

Depends on the issue 

57 Do you have strong religious beliefs?

No. I am very spiritual but religion itself is too rigid for an open-minded person such as myself.

58 What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is?

Love and compassion
