1. How tall are you? I'm 5'9" and a half

2. I read somewhere that its offensive to ask people who don't want kids why they don't want kids? Would you find that offensive?

I don't think there's a one size fits all answer to this question. I think if you know a person well enough to where you're having conversations about your personal feelings and thoughts, then yeah, ask them their reasoning. But asking an acquaintance, well it isn't really any of your business. Plus, people get so touchy about it. I want children, but I imagine if I didn't I wouldn't find the question offensive. But I'm the type of person who likes conversations to be "real" immediately. My friends will say *anything* and that's how I like it.

3. And I don't want to start any fights with this one but its been bothering me a lot lately. Do you think that people in general feel way too entitled to things?

Well, yeah, I mean I think the typical Westerners feels too entitled to a lot of material shit. Obvs. But then I think about why we feel that way. And I wonder if it's because we don't think we're entitled to true fulfillment (whatever the fuck that means) so we try to fill whatever void we have -- the one we don't feel entitled to fill with self-love, with knowledge we're actually interested in accruing, with the love of somebody we feel we don't deserve / can't get, etc. etc. -- with STUFF.
