31 - Logically I know that when you die your bodily processes begin to shut down and you simply lose consciousness until they've completely stopped. And I've done more than enough autopsies to know there are ways you can die that are extremely painful. I still believe in Heaven, though, which I suppose could be surprising. I think it's important to have faith.
32 - There was a tree in the backyard of the cottage I grew up in. It was a huge oak and it had a space in the center on top of the trunk that I used to sit in to read. It was always my safe place to go to when I felt overwhelmed.
33 - I generally tend to buy a bottle of good wine, have a glass or two (or more) and watch a movie that cheers me up.
34 - I had my gallbladder removed when I was nineteen. I was in so much pain before it got taken out, and then it took me a month to recover because my main incision got infected. I was miserable for two months. I'm just thankful it happened between my first and second year of university.
35 - I wish I could be less nervous all the time. And I also wish I could stop constantly trying to get everyone's approval.
36 - I have been known to drink an entire bottle of wine in one evening. I also tend to watch some horrendously sappy movies.
37 - My ex-fiancee Tom. I suppose I did truly care about him, but a large part of the reason I chose him was because he reminded me of Sherlock, only he was nicer and more caring towards me. He is a good man, but he deserved a better woman than me, someone who truly loved him with all of her heart and didn't look at him as a substitute for someone else.
38 - (I'll have to answer this later once I go through my songs.)
39 - I wish I'd known the truth about Moriarty before I agreed to date him. I also wish I'd known that things were never going to stay as bad as they seemed at the time, that it was going to get better.
40 - When I got here I had hoped I could go back to what I had done back home, but even with the credentials that Claudia gave me it was still far too complicated and there was more travel than I could do. I'm very lucky I was able to put my skills to use as a teacher because I love what I do.
