I sit in front of the computer all day and don’t feel like doing much more than that.Questions!
1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)
Physical activity is draining.2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?
I was born into and am stuck in a smallish (25,000) town with nothing to do. I don’t do anything, go anywhere, or want to do anything. I don’t like having my daily routine upset.3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?
I turn inward even more, kinda hunker down and keep quiet till the shit blows over.4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?

Actualize? Meh. I’m a slacker, I don’t want to do anything.9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?
Don’t know, haven’t had one.10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave?

I’m a control enthusiast when it comes to me and my stuff.12. How important is control? Self-control? Control over your person/environment? Control over your ultimate fate? Would you rather die on your terms than live on someone else's?
