    Not that I always act accordingly, that's just sort of the mission statement and what I work towards.

    Because there's fun stuff to do and people worth sticking around for.

    Why do I live my life?

    Because I don't know what's out there and what experiences life will give me.

    In fact this is a really great question.

    I should be looking for new experiences, else why do I wake up everyday? (rhetorical question)

    If you make decisions based upon people's reactions or judgments then you make really boring choices.

    The more people love you, the more there's going to be people that hate you.

    I'm crazy and I don't pretend to be anything else.

    Because giving up would define me in the way I most want to avoid definition.

    Well.

    To share my visions with the world. Ever since I was a kid though, they've been refined.

    Other than that? To not feel alone.

    I do it because no one can stop me and there are others out there who think they can.

    Missed this. Why do I do it? For purpose. To effect in some way the world or people in it. To share aspects of myself and my thoughts that are understood through my works. To leave something more meaningful to me.

    I feel most alive when I create and express something of truth that comes close to actually conveying it. That is my personal, individual motivation. My social motivation is to lessen pain in the world because on some level I'm always conscious of the low hum of pain in reality, so listening to someone, or saving a puppy, or anything that relieves pain around me helps to lessen that background hum.

    I want to know everything about everything and I want to know why. Why is this the case? I dunno, life doesn't have a purpose other than that which you give it so learning as much about it as possible seems like as good a purpose as any, plus it's interesting.

    because if i don't people are gonna be angry at me or assume i'm lazy and it's easier just do so people don't bug you. also if i just stopped that means i'd also stop breathing which is a nice idea but then i think about all the people i care about and though i know ultimately it be for the best i can't because of them, plus i have a cat and if i die who's going to feed her. so i just push on, and hope someone kills me or i die of natural causes, but if someone kills me i hope they're at least kind enough to find my kitty a good home and not take her to the shelter
