Trisha Retakes Years-Old Surveys (3/6/11), 1/many

I’m currently reading “We Are Never Meeting in Real Life” by Samantha Irby, and her application for The Bachelorette reminded me of the MySpace and Facebook surveys that I took a lot throughout high school. I couldn’t get past it without resisting the urge to re-do one of my old ones for fun.

These things are so! freaking! long!

What is your favorite color?
2011: dark blue dark bluuuuue
2019: I still love a dark blue. I also love that I mentally read my answer to the tune of the Jack’s Mannequin song – some things never change.

Is there something you want to say to someone but can’t?
2011: all day every day
2019: all day every day

What do you hear right now?
2011: audio bullys on repeat
2019: Oddly enough, I read this answer and started playing “Only Man” by Audio Bullys, which is the only song by them that I still remember. My music taste was eclectic.

What song is currently playing?
2011: … well if you must know, audio bullys – if you want my love
2019: I couldn’t find that song on Spotify… what a bummer. Spotify went back to the “#ThrowbackThursday” July 4th Motown playlist I was previously listening to, which is totally! fine! It’s now playing “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” by The Temptations.

Did anything bad happen to you in September?
2011: … i went back to school
2019: In September 2018, I ran my first marathon… that was pretty bad. (If you want to read more about it, well, I wrote a big long blog post about it! You can’t miss it!)

Have you met anybody that changed your life?
2011: of course
2019: of course

Do you have any weird sleep habits?
2011: would it be a weird habit to say that i don’t sleep?
2019: Hah, remember when I was chronically sleep deprived between the ages of 13-22? Could you believe that I woke up at literally 5:45AM every morning for two years to catch my 6:30AM bus in high school? And I was in the middle of the route? I’m pretty sure I slept the recommended 8 hours but spread it out over Sunday through Thursday nights.

Has anything upset you in the past week?
2011: all day every day
2019: I spilled a full cup of water over the makeshift work area that I created for myself on my parent’s dining room table. The heavy cup thudded to the ground pretty loudly, and my mom quickly leaned over from the kitchen to ask what happened. “I spilled my water,” I said dismissively, looking for a towel to dry things off. “I can clean it up, don’t worry!” As I collected a few towels and started wiping everything down, my mom came over with more towels and wiped everything else down. “Your laptop!” she gasped, picking it up and dabbing its underside. “I got it!” I assured her again from the floor, where I was on all fours, a towel in each hand. “Tsk tsk,” she tutted as she continued down to wipe my seat. “I GOT IT!” I scowled, getting up and collecting all the used towels and hanging them up around the kitchen. Doesn’t she think I can do anything by myself? I thought. In retrospect, she had nothing else to do, so why not help? But at the moment, I felt like a sleep-deprived high schooler again, shooing my mom off to prove that I’m an adult, dammit.

Do you miss the way things use to be?
2011: all day every day, though right now is pretty cool too
2019: I think my last answer reflects my answer: a loud, resounding HELL NOI sleep 8 hours a night now and can wipe up my own messes, thank-you-very-much.

Would you rather go to Greece or Hawaii?
2011: i would love to go anywhere because my life is boring
2019: If travelling internationally the past few years (with my teenage self looking on with heart-eyes) has taught me anything, it’s that language barriers are no joke. And that was spent mostly in places that still use the Roman alphabet! However, if travelling through Europe specifically taught me anything, it’s that Euro coins are deceptive, and it’s easy to accidentally leave the continent with too-many-to-shrug-off-without-making-plans-to-either-return-or-exchange-back-at-a-hefty-loss. And my coworkers have many stories about Hawaii being much more expensive than the mainland. All that to say, my answer is that I still can’t choose between the two, but for completely different reasons.

Have you ever broken someone’s heart?

2011: she got me screaming, i must be dreaming, i’m going crazy, SOME. BODY. HELP. COME ON!
2019: I really did listen to the Teriyaki Boyz in my youth. Imagine that. (And yes, I had to Google it – I had the melody in my head, but couldn’t place it. My memory’s going, I tell ya.) I’m sure I’ve broken somebody’s heart in the romantic sense – I mean, come on – but I can actually say with certainty that I have broken the hearts of former friends and family. Yes, I’m the worst.

What’s something you CAN wait for?
2011: … college coursework
2019: Yeah, college was pretty bad. For some reason, the first answer that came to mind was “filling out mortgage paperwork,” even though I’ve resigned myself to never owning a home in my lifetime. However, this doesn’t seem like the best time to go into a debt rant, so I won’t. Perhaps my answer is instead, “giving birth.” I watched a video about what happens during a planned c-section and even that was enough to make me squirm more than expected.

What time did you go to sleep last night?
2011: 2 ish
2019: Oddly enough, 2-ish. Being home messes with my sleep schedule, what can I say?

What are you doing at this very second?
2011: TRYING TO WRITE ABOUT KABBALAH FOR RELIGION CLASS
2019: This must’ve been during Aquinas! I still stand by my assertion that everyone should take a world religions class in their life… even if my teacher’s lectures were literally pulled from Wikipedia. Maybe I’ll write about that later…

Is there someone in your life you wish you never met?
2011: sometimes, yeah, i miss people, but things happen for a reason right!
2019: I’m a firm believer in the “everything happens for a reason” mantra (I wrote this before reading my above answer, hah), so while there are people that I don’t particularly like or enjoy being around, I’m still learning about myself by dealing with them. As much as it sucks, I’m still learning, and that’s worth something, right?

Did you sleep well last night?
2011: WHAT IS SLEEPING “WELL”?
2019: I prefer my bed, but I slept as well as I could on my parent’s leather couch.

If you were paid 1 million dollars to spend the night in a supposed haunted house would you?
2011: LET’S GO
2019: LET’S GO

Are you missing someone right now?
2011: all day every day
2019: all day every day

Are you good at hiding your feelings?
2011: apparently i wear my emotions on my sleeve
2019: Still wearing my emotions on my sleeve, all day every day.

How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
2011: either less than 5 or more than 10 (nothing in the middle!)
2019: Honestly, yeah, that hasn’t changed. Though I have since discovered the power of coffee, which is good (energy!) and bad (withdrawal headaches!).

Were you sad when you heard about Michael Jackson’s death?
2011: i was incredulous
2019: Same.

Are you the same person as you were at the beginning of 2008?
2011: who the hell was i at the beginning of 2008?, well that was freshman year, so damn, yes i was
2019: Wow, my 17-year-old self awareness. I am absolutely not the same as I was at 14 years old than I am now at 26 years old. Could you imagine???

Has anything happened to you within the past month that has made you really angry?
2011: yeah, actually
2019: Yeah, the mom thing! Just kidding – I’ve been angry quite a bit this past month, for both work-related and personal reasons, but I’m learning to cope with and unload them in a more health way (key word – learning).

Current image on your desktop?
2011: some picture from portal with the quote ‘the ship of failure floats on a sea of excuses’
2019: Oh wow, I completely forgot about that quote. I’m on my work laptop right now and the desktop picture rotates through a bunch of cute animal pictures. Right now, it’s a lil’ turtle crawling across a bunch of rocks.

So, what are your plans for tomorrow?
2011: school, home, wanting to knock out but instead doing seminar homework until i die
2019: Senior year, man. I’m currently working out plans to see my cousin tomorrow. Maybe I’ll go to a yoga class. Otherwise, I will sit around my parent’s house the whole day. Tell me why I don’t like going home.

Do you think a lot of people think bad things about you?
2011: all day every day
2019: all day every day

What would you do if a stranger came up to you and said you are the most attractive person they have seen?
2011: smile awkwardly, say thank you awkwardly, walk away awkwardly
2019: smile awkwardly, say thank you awkwardly, walk away awkwardly (except this has actually happened now, and this is almost exactly what happened)

Does it bother you when someone lies to you?
2011: of course it does
2019: of course it does

Do you like funny people or serious people?
2011: serious people are boring but funny people need to be serious sometimes
2019: I really like my old answer. I do lean toward funny people now though.

Do you like being around a large group of friends, or a best friend?
2011: … i just want friendssssss
2019: PREACH. I haven’t had a “best friend” that I wasn’t also dating in a long time, so my view of both options is pretty skewed at this point. I lean toward having a large group of friends, if only because I know that I tend to be clingy and need to have a lot of options to suppress that urge.

Do you plan on moving within the next 2 years?
2011: moving to ithaca? boston? ;DD what a lie, moving SOMEWHERE, hopefully
2019: Don’t worry, high school senior Trisha, you will get unceremoniously rejected from Cornell and move to Boston. But it’s okay, because you’ll end up loving Boston and continue to live there for the next 8 years without any immediate plans to move.

What is your last thought before you go to bed?
2011: SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP <3333333
2019: To make myself sleepy, I had just watched two YouTube videos of a bilingual couple each spending a day talking to the other in their native language, so I was probably thinking about how cool it would be to be multilingual. I do distinctly remember thinking about a video where Bryan (who is actually fluent in Tagalog) and I (who can barely get by) spoke to each other in Tagalog for a day, and silently chuckled at what a trainwreck of a video that would be.

Is there someone that you used to talk to every single day but you don’t now?
2011: story of my life
2019: story of my life

Have you told anyone that you missed them lately?
2011: miss na miss kitaaaaaaaaaaaaa
2019: Bryan, of course. (I’m clingy, I told you.)

If you were caught cheating, would you fess up?
2011: in my inevitable hysteria, i probably would

2019: Oddly enough, about two weeks ago.

Are you craving something?
2011: ♪ why can’t you want me like the other boys do, they stare at me while i crave you
2019: Holy wow, that song is older than I thought it was. I’m always craving pastries, if you’ve got any.

Is your bed against more than one of your walls?
2011: yes, not a random question at all
2019: Yes, but the walls have huge windows on them now, so I like to think of the bed leaning against the windows more than the walls. No, this is not a good thing, and I do not like it, but we all make do.

What’s on your mind right now?
2011: wtf is ein sof
2019: Huh, wtf is ein sof?

What do you do when you get nervous?
2011: i get thirsty, and then when i drink i have to go to the bathroom, and then that makes me even more nervous and even more thirsty and it’s just a vicious cycle
2019: Same, honestly.

Be honest, do you like people in general?
2011: ♪ i hate everyone, i hate everyone, i hate everyone upon this cursed earth
2019: That song is still a banger and seeing it live only cemented that opinion. I have softened on people as whole though. I assume people are good unless convinced otherwise.

Do you have a reason to smile right now?
2011: NO, I DON’T
2019: Not at this moment.

Would you be happier if life had a rewind button?
2011: it depends, is it one of those rewind buttons where you could rerecord everything? or one where you just watch everything play back? either would be pretty sweet, i’d probably prefer the latter
2019: Questions like this remind me that things were pretty rough in high school and college and I have no desire to return. Having a steady income and free time is awesome.

Are you going to get hurt anytime soon by someone?
2011: gosh, if i knew those kinds of things i’d be in a constant state of paranoia
2019: Same.

This time last year, can you remember who you liked?
2011: YEAH ACTUALLY, terrible times
2019: I think it’s hilarious that I have a vague idea of who I’m referring to but am not 100% sure. This survey is starting to tire me out, but it makes very specific references to “today” and “tomorrow” and I MUST finish it! Anyway, I’ve been dating the same person for the last 6 years, so you tell me.

How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
2011: weekdays, about four or five; weekends, supposed to be about eleven or twelve but i never got a chance to replenish this weekend oh noes
2019: I’m trying to stay at a consistent 7-8 every night. Getting consistent sleep is a game changer, let me tell you.

Are you easy to get along with?
2011: i try to be?
2019: i try to be? But I have recently learned that I really am not, and I do want to fix that.

Do you like the rain?
2011: it’s relaxing
2019: It’s still relaxing! I’ve also come to appreciate being outside in the rain – especially running.

Have you ever done something you told yourself you wouldn’t do?
2011: all day every day
2019: all day every day

What’s the last movie you saw in theaters and with who?
2011: whoa, i dont remember the last time i went to the movies
2019: Aladdin, for the second time, a few weeks ago with some friends! The movie is, weirdly, much better in IMAX. I honestly didn’t think it would make a difference, but it did.

Have you ever been hurt by someone you never thought would hurt you?
2011: story of my life
2019: Story of my life, but not as dramatically.

Your parents are out of town. Would you throw a massive party?

2019: Living away from my parents is a treat!

Have you made a joke about somebody that made them cry?
2011: i’ve made jokes and then felt like complete shit afterwards through unintentionally offending others!
2019: I still do the 2011 thing!

Do you care too much about your appearance?
2011: i care enough to be bothered by it but not enough to actually change anything
2019: Weirdly, I feel like I’ve become more self-conscious about my appearance than I was in the past. Maybe it’s a hierarchy of needs thing – I’m getting enough sleep now to realize that I could use some work as an overall person.

Are you a jealous person?
2011: story of my life
2019: story of my life

Have you bought any clothing items in the last week?

2011: busy as fuck

Do you have a friend of the opposite sex you can talk to?
2011: all day every day!
2019: all day every day! I sleep with him too!

What were you doing at midnight last night?
2011: watching snl!
2019: Watching “Mike and Dave Needs Wedding Dates” on TV with my mom. Thankfully, I caught the last 5 minutes while waiting for the movie to re-run, so I knew to leave the room for the last few scenes. Crisis averted!

Anything happen to you within the past month that made you really happy?
2011: i want to say GETTING INTO COLLEGE but njit doesn’t excite me at all and rutgers happened three months ago lol uhhh friday was pretty cool?
2019: Hah, shots fired! Seeing a bunch of concerts this month were pretty cool. Coincidentally, they were all groups that I started getting into around 2011 (Fitz and the Tantrums, Young the Giant, The Lonely Island), so I’m sure high school senior me would be thrilled.

Do you always answer your phone?

What is bothering you right now?
2011: THE SEFIROT
2019: I assume that’s another Aquinas thing? It’s really freaking hot in my parent’s house right now. The population of the house went from two to nine over the course of a few days and the air conditioning systems are frankly struggling to keep up.

Are you multi-tasking right now?
2011: story of my life
2019: If you count sneezing for no reason a task, then yes, I am multi-tasking. These surveys are significantly less fun to do if you’re not alternating them with writing a DBQ. Contrast is everything.

Are you wearing a hoodie? If so, what color?

Do you ever listen to country music?
2011: it doesn’t make me want to rip my hair out, but i don’t listen to it voluntarily
2019: That’s a nice way of putting it. I’ve grown to appreciate country, especially artists leaning toward pop, a lot. Music is music, man.

Do you get mad when people smoke around you?
2011: i wish i had the guts to be one of those people who can cough uncontrollably around smokers so they get the message
2019: When I was in college, one of my friends told her lab partner off very loudly in the middle of class for taking a smoke break. She used phrases along the lines of, “If you want to destroy your lungs, do it on your own time,” and “I don’t want to smell your cancer-causing compounds for the rest of the night.” He didn’t look too bothered. I wish I had both kinds of energy.

Did you lie on any of these questions so far?
2011: well lying and deleting the questions are two different things…
2019: Did I really delete questions? I was a sneaky bitch.

Do you know anyone named Matt?
2011: who doesn’t??!
2019: Too many, arguably.

What smiley face do you use often?
2011: ;DD
2019: I honestly tried holding off on emojis as long as I could, but there are so many emotions that can’t be accurately and easily conveyed in ASCII form. When I made the switch to using emojis full-time, I had to commit, because using emojis and using smileys at the same time is quite jarring. Am I still in fifth grade?

Honestly, have you ever eaten raw cookie dough?
2011: yum
2019: Yes, both the possibly E. coli-contaminated and the safe kind. I’m not a sweets girl anymore, so it’s been a while.

Can you name one person who has the same first and last initials as you?
2011: this girl in my school?
2019: TAYLOR. SWIFT. It only took releasing an iconic pop album and using her initials on the cover for me to realize.

Are you waiting for anything?
2011: all day every day
2019: Really, I’m trying to get home to Boston sooner rather than later.

Do you think you will be a better parent than your parents were/are?
2011: i’ll try?
2019: Same, I can only speculate until I actually have kids.

Do you think that crying is a form of weakness?
2011: ♪ naite sumu nara nakiyagare (subete no koi wa shabondamaaaaaaa)
2019: WHAT. A. JAM. Crying is not a form of weakness.

Who regularly makes appearances in your dreams?
2011: INCEPTION
2019: I haven’t actually remembered a dream in a while…

Would you ever camp out on a beach, under the stars?

Have you ever found someone you really really really liked?
