Two days for the price of one since my answers are much shorter than the questions themselves.
The Fifty Question meme

How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Everyone isn’t me, different needs, wants, expectations.

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Get my drawings into a gallery. Conflicting goals, shyness, lifestyle choices.

Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Shyness, I suppose if we are to take the answer to the above question at face value

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? If I could, I would live in Manhattan because it’s a place where life happens, for better or worse, 24/ 7. At least the kind of life I want to live.

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? Absolutely and no.

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? The former.

Why are you, you? Nature and nurture. DNA and environment together, if not equally, in combination.

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Not always, maybe not even mostly, but I’ve had the same friends, in some cases, for decades so, I must being doing something alright.

Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? The latter.

What are you most grateful for? Each next day.

Twent-five done out of fifty :)

Congratulations on persevering with these questions. Some are interesting, but some are quite odd. Perhaps if I were younger...I'm thinking adolescent...I'd be more impressed. FanSee

Lauren took some more seriously than I did and while she's not an adolescent, she's sure closer to that than me. Still, I said I'd do it so, I will remembering next time to check what I'm getting myself into before deciding to do it.

I wouldn't have thought you were shy. :)

I think I'd die from stress in Manhattan, that's one of those places I'm glad not to live. I love our quiet, pokey little suburb!

I am. Less so now maybe than in the past. Having Lauren forced me to confront my fears and to get us out there doing things that, without her, I never would have done. But when she's not here, I go back to my old ways.

I drive but I don't care for it and here in the burbs I have to drive anywhere I want to go and yet, there's not all that much to do anyway. When I lived in San Francisco all I had to do was walk out my door and down the street and there was just so much going on, great restaurants, movie theaters, galleries, bookstores yah yah yah. Your quiet little suburb probably has a lot more character than mine which is just like every other suburb anywhere. And boring.

It does have a real personality of its own. And the public transportation is fantastic, with tram, bus and train schedules that are just minutes apart, so if you miss one, you take the next one. We have a car, but we can't really say we absolutely need it because of the good public transportation. But then, Germany is tiny compared to the US, so it's easier for us to maintain an infrastructure like that.

I don't think shyness is something one needs to let go of. It's part of us. We can do the things we want and not turn into over confident people.

It sometimes stops me though, can be hard for me to confront but I'm better than I used to be and yes, I think you are right. it's most healthy to simply accept who we are and go from there. Thanks for your thoughtful comment :)
