EP: Good afternoon and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. When you are 100 and looking back at your life, what do you want to be able to say?

qwerty2me: Pleasure to be here. I sure hope people are enjoying this interview. I lived, loved and was loved. I did all I could do to prepare my children for independence and security especially my daughter who has a disability. I wish someone had told me when I was younger the life skills needed to stand up for myself before I learnt how to at 40. I had a wonderful life and really enjoyed being alive no matter how hard it was. No matter how nice someone is always give time to see the real person, having learnt that I trusted people to quickly.

EP: Definitely something to think about. If you could meet any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

qwerty2me: I like how you think. My grandmother.

EP: Lovely. What is the best advice you have ever received? Who gave it to you?

qwerty2me: Always happy to answer that. The late Randy pausch said Have something to bring to the table, because that will make you more welcomed.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!

Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you. He said, when you are pissed off at somebody, and you're angry at them, you just haven't given them enough time. Just give them a little more time — and they'll almost always impress you. And that really stuck with me. I think he's absolutely right on that one.

EP: Excellent. What compelling insights you've given us. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with qwerty2me . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.
