Today's quotes are from Lady GaGa:

1. "Peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." Do you keep your cool no matter what is going on around you? I certainly try to and often people say I appear calm but I know it's all outward appearances

2. "Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore." Do you feel that career should be more important than your love life? it depends on the career

3. "You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way." In what way(s) do you feel that you are unique? I think outside the box a lot of times and living where I live (at the end of the earth) it is unusual to be my age and unmarried or without children, so that is suspect for a lot of people

4. "I want women -- and men -- to feel empowered by a deeper and more psychotic part of themselves. The part they're always trying desperately to hide. I want that to become something that they cherish." Do you feel that there is a part of you that you need to hide from most people? nope

5. "Love is like a brick. You can build a house, or you can sink a dead body." Have you ever held on to a relationship even though you truly knew it was already over? of course

6. "Sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you're not a winner, you want to be like yourself." Would your friends say that you are a winner in this game of life? I think so

7. "A glamorous life is quite different to a life of luxury. I don’t need luxury. For years, I was practically broke but I was still very vain and glamorous. And I still am." Can you tell us about a time when you were broke and yet still happy? every day

8. "I’m single right now and I’ve chosen to be single because I don’t have the time to get to know anybody. So it’s okay not to have sex, it’s okay to get to know people. I’m celibate. Celibacy’s fine." Do you think staying celibate between relationships important? who am I to tell a grown adult when to have sex?

9. "Fight and push harder for what you believe in, you'd be surprised, you are much stronger than you think." Tell us about an incident where you were stronger than you thought you were. every day

10. "I lie in bed and try to pray and breathe. I have a very overactive mind. I’m the sort of person who’d never take medication to calm myself. It’s maddening. But I love what comes out." Do you feel that you always have the ability to calm yourself? eventually, thankfully I've learned some great techniques in therapy

Direct and to the point.
We agree here alot. People always suspect the difference in people.
...and who made us in charge of the Celebacy rules.

I'd say that you're a winner. In fact I'd testify to it in court. :) Happy Hump day!

I didn't do this one this week (too busy), but I beg to differ a bit with her on #2: I know plenty of people who have awakened to find their career has indeed stopped loving them (and vice versa).
