Hello my friends who probably don't read my journals. Today I'm leaving for camp and I'll be back in a week with some cool new drawings to finally put up. It's been way over due and before I go I wanted to show you guys this list of really tough questions that everybody should know the answers too. This should keep you guys occupied quite nicely untill I get back.

This is a list of some of the toughest questions that I could think of dealing with life. Since we have come this far already in our lives we should have asked ourselves these questions long ago although I doubt that anyone has taken the initiative to ask themself most of them between the school system and its painful distractions from the big questions and the things that are most important in life and just simple all consuming day to day life as we listen to the lip service of the media and american society always unquestionably. If your brave you should answer these questions as well as if you believe that you have a future. If your a fool you'll leave these questions unanswered as you wallow through life.
I encourage you to post your answers but if you want to keep them private that is of course fine. The purpose of a question is for you to answer it whether you let people know your answer or not. Remember, make sure that you read the question fully, answer yourself honestly and make the answer absolute there is no need for you to give a half hearted reply unless you're trying to fool yourself.

Read and answer whatever the current question is fully, Do Not look ahead and there is no going back, just like in life. Do not change any of your answers once you have read the next question otherwise you will just be lying to yourself.
