Weekly Wondering // Week 5

Sunday salutations!!
For the explanation of what is going on please do click here and have a quick read.
Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.

When it's all said and done, will you have said more than you've done?
Nope. I'm not a big talker. I barely even talk about the things I have done, compared to some people who are all talk and no action. I especially don't talk about things I haven't done or only plan to do for the sake of things falling through and therefore would make me have said more than I had done.

If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
Animals are better than people. The planet is precious and is being destroyed by our terrible species. And everything in between? Stop animal testing, stop eating animals, stop using animals for entertainment, stop using fossil fuels, stop over breeding/over populating our Earth, stop building concrete jungles and protect the real ones, stop sending everything to landfill and use more reusable, renewable and recyclable things. Need I go on?

If the average human lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
Not much to be honest. The only way I would do anything differently is if I had more money and I don't so I can't haha! I'd love to be able to see and do more but the world does revolve around money, making life something I couldn't personally do differently purely depending on lifespan.

What do we all have in common besides our genes that makes us human?
It's hard to answer this because I would originally go straight to saying 'compassion', though now more than ever there are many, many so-called humans who have no compassion at all. 
Thinking practically I also thought of language? As no matter what country you are from you have, speak, understand some sort of language. Or the majority of people do. This is really difficult so as not to offend or exclude anyone. 

If you could choose one book as a mandatory read for all high school students, which book would you choose?
Harry Potter, duh! haha I actually think they have introduced the Harry Potter books into some classrooms, or so I've heard. 

Would you rather have less work or more work you actually enjoy doing?
Right now I wouldn't mind having more hours or a 2nd job doing the same thing I already am (cleaning) as we could really do with the extra money. I don't understand people who do jobs they hate, though. I would much rather be a cleaning, like I am, and have no stress or responsibilities than work around a load of people who would cause me stress or in a field that took over the rest of my life.

What is important enough to go to war over?
A few things actually. I know being who I am and believing what I do, you would assume I would be 100% against war, but sometimes it is the only option in a world of hard-headed fools who can't accept others opinions, respect others beliefs or get over things rationally. 

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013 here, and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.


  1. This is such a cool idea and an opportunity to get thinking and find out more about yourself. I hope that humans retain their compassion because that's the glue that holds us together.

    1. Thanks! It is definitely getting me thinking and so fun to look back on the same answers from 2013. I hope so too but it's getting to the point where more and more people have none...


  2. I really enjoy these posts of yours Danielle, it's always interesting to read your answers. I liked the one you gave for how you'd live your life if we only had 40 years, because I agree with you. I think it's important to live life without regrets and knowing that you did your best, made the most of things, had fun, love, compassion and helped others is the most important thing, as we can't always change the world, but we can do our best to make a change in the time we have, so I liked that answer of yours, and it got me thinking. I agree with Kate too, I want to believe that all people still have that compassion in them and can do good for all. - Tasha

    1. Thank you :)
      Let's hope there are more people with compassion than those who don't...we really need that right now!


  3. That fog! Wow!

    I like your message. I'd go with the same idea. I would like to see the day when we own up, as a species, to ruining everything in sight because we are selfish and have no respect whatsoever for any other being on the planet. I am sure, that the only reason aliens don't come to us is because they are smart enough to avoid us haha!

    1. It was crazy. Walking home over the bridge you couldn't even see half way across.
      You're right there! Aliens for sure are up there thinking 'wow, what a ****hole!' haha.
