b0nk: I can be; espeically, after bad days. But once again ganja to the rescue.

uniquec: Oh really. you find that helps your mood?

b0nk: It helps me from making stupid decisions.

b0nk: Like a lot of people make decisions based on their mood at the time.

uniquec: Like you make stupid decisions often?

b0nk: I used to.

b0nk: Stupid split second decisions I've regretted.

uniquec: For example, doing this interview.

uniquec: Just kidding.

b0nk: Heh Ishie has been prodding me about it for months.

b0nk: It was inevitable.

uniquec: She wore you down. :)

uniquec: What is your greatest regret in life?

b0nk: Probably not realizing what I want to do with my life til later.

b0nk: Had I realized this once I graduated high school or even college.

b0nk: I would be in different place probably not subbing.

uniquec: But that is just apart of growing older.

b0nk: True, I'm too young to have life regrets.

b0nk: Ask that again 20 years from now.

uniquec: We have to experience certain things, so we can move forward.

b0nk: Like you said we are all influenced by our past.

uniquec: 20 years from now who knows where we will be. :)

uniquec: So any parting words of wisdom now?

b0nk: Well I have quote from a movie I tend to live by.

uniquec: Which is?

b0nk: See if you can guess what it is.

b0nk: Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

uniquec: Words to live by.

uniquec: I'm bad at guessing.

b0nk: Lol.

b0nk: It's from Will Smith in Hitch.

uniquec: I knew it sounded familiar.

uniquec: So thank you for doing the interview.

b0nk: It was great.

uniquec: This concludes another compelling interview with the Goddess and the useless things you learn about people. Thanks again to our guest b0nk for doing this instead of watching his download as we wish him well in his designing career.
