Only Child?

Write about the benefits of being an only child—or the advantages of having siblings. Both kinda apply to me. For 18 years I was an only child - I didn't know I had siblings. I didn't have parents that took care of me, but that still made me an only child or should it be orphaned child.

Beliefs

Do you have the same religious beliefs that you had as a child? If so, why? If not, how and why did they change? I'm sure I've answered this one before. The Venatori don't exactly have a religion. We believe that the world was created and this creator made four races - Aeternus, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and Humans. Technically you could include The Deva as a race as well since Angels and Demons don't fit into these four categories but they our creator never intended them to live on earth. They came before the four races.

Relax

Simplest form of relaxing is yoga. But then any form of exercise is really an exercise in relaxing for me. Whether it's lifting weights or going for a run, it's how I wind down at the end of the day. Sometimes even sex counts as relaxing - but it's more to relieve pent up stress.

Folly

I'm not going to take the typical route with this one. I could tell you all about my foolish childhood, or my beliefs or even ramble on about architecture. But one of the most mundane things I have ever done is to learn to dance. I'm not professional level by any means - but I had an instructor and it's one of those anxiety ridding activities that I love. Letting the music control the body - the movements and precision needed. I'm still in control, but not - it's relaxing.
