I've seen a couple versions of this floating around, but this is the one I decided to do. It might take me a bit more than 10 days, because I'll probably only do it on weekdays.

Day One: Ten things you want to do some day.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight qualities you think are awesome in other people.
Day Four: Seven (semi)interesting things you've pondered or thought about recently.
Day Five: Six things you are glad you did.
Day Six: Five books/movies/tv series/etc that you'd recommend.
Day Seven: Four silly quirks
Day Eight: Three pet peeves
Day Nine: Two things for which you're proud of yourself.
Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. How would my life be different today if I'd been diagnosed with ADD back in middle school, when it first started to have a major impact on my life? I don't really want a different life than the one I have, but sometimes I have this urge to kick either the counselor Dad was sending me to back then or the adults at my school. Or both. Somebody should have spotted that there was more going on there than smart, stubborn, and lazy Jenny not wanting to do the work.

2. How can I contribute to the world? I want to find a place to donate my time and/or my money, but there are so many worthy causes out there. Should I pick one or two and give everything I can to them, or should I give a little bit to everything that seems like a good idea?

3. What else can I save money by making at home instead of buying? I've started doing the math and keeping track, and so far the laundry detergent is worth it but the barbecue sauce was not. That's with me valuing my time at the same rate I get paid at work. If I didn't do that, the laundry soap would be worth it by an amazing margin instead of just a noticeable one, and the BBQ sauce probably would have been a deal.

4. Why don't any of the musical icons of my generation speak to me? I'm not even sure who they are.

5. What will I do with myself while I'm at Pennsic? I haven't made it to many classes the last couple of years. Hopefully I'll do more this time.

6. Should I try to go back to school this fall? If I do, where? How many classes?

7. Why do I prefer the male POV so strongly in certain types of fiction? The theory I've come up with is that it has something to do with suspension of disbelief. That is, I know how that works for me, so if the female character's experience strays too far from my own I have a hard time believing in what's happening. Since I don't know what the male experience is like first-hand, there are fewer things to trip me up and throw me out of the story.

[OK. These are probably interesting only to me. But the meme doesn't say the answers have to be interesting to anybody else. :)]
