50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind

I was browsing Day Zero Project when I came across this. It seems a very popular task to include in the 101 in 1001 list, as it ranked 6th in the site’s Top 101 – the all time most popular goals by participants of Day Zero. So, still lacking of tasks to include in my list, I added it. I hope that after I finished answering all of these 50 questions, I would really free my mind.  I’ll try to post all my answers to the questions, but forgive me if I’d choose not to divulge my answers if they are pretty much personal to me.  So, here it goes. The list of questions were lifted from http://www.marcandangel.com/2009/07/13/50-questions-that-will-free-your-mind/.

These questions have no right or wrong answers. Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.
