Ask @Gabriel_Basco:

What is the most boring job you can imagine?

I'd imagine it's something where you are pretty much delegated a list of doing things in a specific order in a specific way just about every day that you work.
The closest thing to being a robot by following a list of protocols and instructions.
The only thing that'd be worse is if you were specialized in something that could be really creative and you got hired to use your specialized skills to... go down a delegated list of doing things in a specific order in a specific way just about every day that you work. I'd be bored and frustrated.

Have you ever trusted someone too much?

You know what's an interesting thing about this question is that you will never really know that you trusted someone "too much" until they break that trust once and it has to be broken on a level where they willingly let you down.
I definitely have felt this feeling about trusting someone "too much".
I have depended on people for things that were consistent in their efforts previously on some pretty reasonable things, but what broke the trust was when they let me down on something that left me vulnerable as a whole in my willingness to be open and raw emotionally.
It's easy to sort of forgive and reconcile on a minor effort that may have just slipped their mind, but when you're feeling helpless in a real dark vulnerable place, you start to realize that not everyone can understand or help you when you're there. They kind of gradually distance themselves from what they can't understand... and that's the sort of thing where I realized I may have trusted someone "too much".
Not to say that they are bad people but as far as trusting their willingness and ability to support in a desperate (feeling) moment, it was more than they could handle and may have overstated their openness to making time for that sort of thing.
Now, having been in that position where people have broke that trust in being that type of person for me, I have began to try to be that person those people couldn't be to other people I know. I'd rather live and lead by example of sticking to my word in such a case. When I say "I got you", I mean it.
We all like to think that we're good people and we want to help others in thir time of need, especially in emotional or mental health moments. A lot of people share posts about them being open to be reached out to "if you need any support" but yet they flake a bit realizing they weren't quite ready. It's an optimistic expression, but distrustful in the end.
I guess that's one good thing that comes out of having had a mental health issue is that I can say that I understand and I mean it. It also has my threshold of willingness to support more acutely placed where I actually KNOW how I could go about helping them.
Even in lesser situations of some casual help or casual favor or some privileged information where trust would be a very convenient dependency, it just makes it easier to stay strong to my word.
I learned how to be more trustworthy in these situations because yes - I have trusted others too confidently before.

Why does a person have a nose?

As a human, I utilize my nose to breathe so I can live. I also use it to smell things. Mmmmm... appealing smells are one of my favorite things to experience.
I love fragrances! A good cologne of mine. A lovely perfume of a woman can set my mind off!
If you want to question something about human anatomy, ask why men still have nipples?
I don't know. I mean, they're still utilized in pleasure but other than that, why the hell do I have these?!

Who is dear to you?

My family. First always.
Outside of that, my friends.
If you're wondering who I have certain crush/woman appreciation feelings for, this young woman named Karishma.
The woman I have mentioned in previous answers... yeah - those feelings are still there.
An audio engineer and she's fun/funny and her laugh is loveable and we were comfortable just chillin' together = I love her for all of that 😊 She is a surprising friend (my sister's best friend first) I surprisingly appreciate and I really like how it feels to know her on a new level than I have previously 🙏❤✨

Last time you cried? And why?

It was recently when I felt stuck because of my driving alone anxiety.
I started thinking that I would never be able to commute to better work opportunities...
which means I wouldn't get more money...
which means I would have less means for those experiences I wanted...
which means I would miss out on connecting with people...
which means I would miss possibilities of developng a romantic relationship...
which means I would end up alone and/or with no family legacy.
There were many more thoughts but those were the main big thoughts that dragged me down the downward spiral.
Oddly enough, I just negated the driving problem. I have just driven the furthest and longest time (in traffic for 2 hours each way) alone since I first got diagnosed with it when I was 21.
With my new comfort level being Oakland, I feel like I can actually drive wherever in the Bay Area now, which is an amazing feeling!
I won't be crying down that "driving" downward spiral for a while now.
Maybe still the frustration of impatience about moving out will bring a few quiet tears, but I'll stack this money from these new job opportunities towards my goal.
Maybe the loneliness at night will still bring some heavy tears on a bad day. I mean, that was ultimately the big reason I cried last time.

what have you been ashamed for?

- Indulging in too much drinking and having a reckless mouth.
- Appreciating a woman's body before their personality and unique characteristics.
- My anxiety problem.
- Having almost no friends because of my anxiety problems.
- Acting unlike my real self just to "fit in".
- Not expressing how I feel about someone.
- Not expressing.
- Not being open about things.
- For being a late bloomer.
- For being a virgin.
- For still living in my dad's house.
- For still being in this town.
- For having a facial birthmark.
- For being myself.
I'm just going to stop right there. Some of these things I ave fixed and some of them are not things to be "fixed" but yet I still felt shame.
People will make you feel like shit for things that you were even born as. So I cut the fake shit, I cut the acting hard shit, cut talking copious amounts of shit, cut indulging in stupid shit, and stayed true to a life that minimizes feelings of shame.
This is why I stay trying to be the best version of myself, stay honorable in my values, and love... always 🙏❤✨

Money or love?

Love.
You could be in money and still be sad as fuck.
I have never heard of being in real love and being sadder because of that.
Those who put money first stay sad about love. Those who put love first are happy giving up money for people they care for.
I am willing to treat people I care for using money only because I loved first. If I thought my money first, I would be too distracted from creating better connections with people who really would make me more happy if they were more present in my life than money.
I don't care how much money people make. I care about the people and how appreciated and happy they are.
Love... always 🙏🏽❤️✨

What first comes to your mind with the word 'Marriage'? 🌚

A warm feeling of being able to legally declare what at that point would already be a well-established, specialized, and exclusive friendship between me and whoever my wife ends up being.
Love... always 🙏❤✨

Where do the happiest people live?

Wherever they are. The happiest people don't base their happiness on where they live. The happiest people are happy because of their mindset and discipline in discerning what is worth their energy and what isn't in the long run.
Interesting note: I have heard that Samoans are referred to as the "happy people".
I think I'd be pretty happy too if I lived on such a beautiful Pacific island, not that location would be the basis of my happiness, but i would be grateful and that adds to happiness 🙂

Something coming up you're excited about??

The band was called...
November 23 - CHASE ATLANTIC! A year and a few weeks later, going to see them again.
(Date TBD) - Any surprises in love 🙏❤✨

What invention has had the greatest impact on society? And why?

I think it comes down to 2 inventions: the printing press and Guericke's electric generator.
The printing press made it exponentially easier to spread information in its efficiency to print and reprint written word. The effort to get those products created into the hands of new readers was still a step-by-step transit to the people.
Guericke's electric generator on the other hand was the realization that humans could harness electricity. As you are reading this on your electronic device, please note this wouldn't have been possible without that invention. The printing press at this point has been bypassed.
I think once humans could harness electricity and control it, it exploded into other inventions that turned electricity in audio and visual mediums. Information was then spread so much faster and the progress of the human race (attempting) to separate themselves from the more primal animal species was exponential. We started using devices to transmit things to other people on the other side of the world and not even physically connected by wires even.
People will say the printing press has had the greatest impact. I am willing to type that as big as an impact the printing press had, should the press not have been invented, harnessing electricity would have still done and carried the exponential boom in the spread of information through its influenced various mediums just the same.
If the electric generator wasn't invented, information would still be spread at most the speed of the fastest vehicle assigned to carry printed materials, which even now is only as fast a long-haul airliner to spread information around the world.

??What would you say to your young self and why?

You better start learning what you need to know about being an adult because your parents aren't going to help you with much of that.
They aren't even going to provide a good example of real love so that you know what it is.
Stay learning on the internet but discern information. Don't keep your feelings hidden and tucked away. Treat girls/women right. Nurture others' pains. Keep pure connection the focus. Love... always 🙏💛✨
