The proper age for having sex is: 14 to 16

The first time I had sex was at the age of: 14

My most recent lie: That I am sober

When I’m late for an appointment and it’s my fault, I: Tell the truth.

A lie that I tell myself: That friends I have are better than they are

Something I have stolen that was not worth the risk: I haven’t stolen anything since I stole a lighter from Treasure Island Department Store when I was 12

Drugs I have tried in the past: GHB, Marijuana, Amyl Nitrate (poppers), Crack, and Blotter

A drug I would never try: Heroin

A drug I will never try again: Crack

I believe that hitting is: NOT a proper form of discipline for a child, nor is it a proper expression of anger as adults, toward adults

As an adult, I have hit a woman. Why? Out of frustration

As an adult, I have hit a man. Why? Self defense

I have never been arrested

I have read someone’s diary or gone through someone’s private belongings without permission. The reason I felt at the time was mistrust. And what did I discover? That he was in fact being honest.

What is my reaction to a partner cheating on me? When I was in past relationships, I found that I wasn’t jealous of the sex he may have had with another. I did feel jealousy in situations of emotional infidelity. In future relationships I will ask is that my partner be honest with me about the tryst

I have cheated on my first two partners, but not with my third partner

A time I hurt someone emotionally was recently when I didn’t communicate with Trish for more than one month

I owe someone money; I am unable to afford the co pays associated with my CIGNA Medicare

All About Me ~ Part IV: God and the World

I believe in a god or higher power, which I refer to as Mother Universe

I describe Mother Universe as all loving and all forgiving

I was raised between two religions, Lutheran (Missouri Synod) (Father’s side) and Catholicism (Mother’s side)

I do not practice either of these religions, nor do I consider myself to be merely “Christian”

My spirituality is now quite diverse as it embraces teachings from many religions including paganism and Wicca

I recall my first “spiritual moment” to have occurred while on a retreat with the Lutheran Youth League to a congregation member’s cabin in northern Wisconsin

The last time I was in a “house of worship” was about a year ago when I went back to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix, in Paradise Valley

I believe death is a transition between lifetimes

I picture the end of the world as a bright light filled with joy, anticipation, excitement and it will be a completely painless experience

I believe that my higher power, Mother Universe, has spoken to me and the message imparted to me was that I am forgiven and that I am loved

I do not believe that most wars start because of religious conflicts

I believe that life does exist on other planets

I believe that these other life forms have already made contact with us

I do not believe in Adam and Eve

I believe in evolution

I believe in Astrology, Tarot, I ching and the Viking Runes

I read my horoscope and include it as part of my home page. I use my horoscope as a guide toward making decisions in addition to consulting the Runes

I have seen various psychotherapists my entire adult life. This process began treatment for depression, which finally many years later was diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depressive)

The issues I have addressed in my therapy have been depression, low self-esteem, abuse issues and addiction

I believe in reincarnation and believe that we may come back in any form that will continue to help us learn the lessons we come to this big classroom called earth to learn

All About Me ~ Part V: Opinions

I am FOR the right to have an abortion

I am FOR the right to own guns

I am FOR the welfare system

I am AGAINST the death penalty

I am FOR the rights and services for illegal immigrants

I am FOR the legalization of drugs

I am FOR the rights for the GLBT (Gay, Lesbian Bisexual and Transgendered) community

I am FOR the practice of premarital sex

Of these issues, that which concerns me most is the rights of the GLBT community, of which I am part of. Unfortunately, I have donated little time or money to this cause

I believe that the first step toward resolving poverty is to create stimulating jobs that pay a fair wage, making them available to everyone

I believe the first step in resolving racism is for people to leave behind the beliefs that have been handed down by those before us – our ancestors, and to start fresh with a belief that we are all one and are part of an interconnected web of the Universe

The environmental issue that concerns me most is the loss of natural habitats to residential areas. I wish for greater infill and revitalization of the inner city neighborhoods

I believe that a person becomes defined by what she or he does for a living. The result comes from spending so much of our time at our job, or career that it begins to show the expectations we have of our own self

Politically, if you haven’t figured this out already, I am a liberal!

I believe the worst crime against humanity is deceit. And I believe the worst political crime is also deceit

The least punishment for those who molest children should be an aggressive rehabilitation program

The least punishment for those who rape should be life in prison

My opinion of the military: homophobic

My opinion of the draft: not necessary

I considered the question whether I would ever fight in a war, and if so under what conditions. I’d have to be a completely different person who believed in war, and in this lifetime, that isn’t me.

All About Me ~ Part VI: Family

My mother passed away 12 years ago

Three things I liked about my mother: Her youthfulness, her cooking, and her ability to put together wonderful holiday parties

My father is still alive: However, we haven’t been consistent with staying in touch

Three things I like about my father: The letters he wrote to me for a while after I moved to Phoenix, his youthfulness, his knowledge of good restaurants

Of the two questions above: The one related to my mother felt easier to answer

Character or physical traits I inherited from my mother: Her youthfulness, her entrepreneurial drive, her hair and skin, her inability to be intimate, her need to be alone

Three things I disliked about my mother: She did not think before speaking which often led to uncomfortable and embarrassing situations, her judgmental attitudes toward people, her abusive behaviors towards, her mother, children, brother, sister-in-law and friends

Three things I dislike about my father: His sarcastic communications, he believes that all of his adult children as failures, deceitful

Of the two questions above: The one related to my father felt easier to answer

Character or physical traits I inherited from my father: His walk, his dishonesty, his interest in sex with multiple partners, his inability to be intimate

When I was a child, my parents: Did not spend enough time with me

The most common issue I argued about with my parents: Was their inability to let their children grow up and live their own lives

My most beautiful childhood memory of your parents: Summertime, living in River Hills, Wisconsin and playing in the garden especially being in the sandbox which was directly beneath the most wonderful apple tree for climbing

My most horrifying child hood memory of my parents: My mom’s beatings from my Dad

If I did not know my parents, I would choose these two people as my mother and father: Virginia and Lem Linnell

If they were available, I would choose these two famous people as m mother and father: Sharon and Ozzy Osborne

I feel that I said, “I love you “enough to my mother during her lifetime

If feel that I said, “I love you” enough to my father as well. I hardly ever said it because I rarely felt it

My mother told me often and in many ways that she loved me

My father never showed his love or told us enough

My mother often said, “You’re fat” or “You’re awfully chubby”

My father often said, “You’re wrong” or “You’re lying”

Of my parents, I resemble my mother most

Something my parents did that I have never forgotten: Never took us on the vacations they built up our excitement and enthusiasm for. To my father it was a joke and he would laugh at us for again falling for his ploy of tricking us into believing him that we were going on a summer vacation

What would it take me to forgive my parents? Greater maturity

If I had to imagine my mother as an animal, it would be a dog

If I had to imagine my father as an animal, it would be a wolverine

My siblings and I share the inability to be intimate in our relationships

A trait that I have never shared with my siblings is their dependence upon my parents (now just my father) for getting by with everyday living

My favorite relative is my Uncle Ed (my mother’s brother) Why? Because I see him as real and authentic

My least favorite relative is my Aunt Beverly

Why? Because she sexually abused me as a child, manipulated me and treated me like shit. She is a bitch to our entire family

If I were not related to my family members, I would still choose these three people to be my family:

1. Michael

2. Scott

3. Amy

If I had to imagine my siblings as animals, they would be:

Michael – Rottweiler

Christine – Cat

Scott – Koala

Something you wish for your mother: That she is happy in her transition to eternity and that my Cocker Spaniel, Coco who preceded her in death keeps her company

Something I would wish for my father: That he would accept his children for whom and what they are, love them unconditionally, and hold his opinions to himself

All About Me ~ Part VII: Friends

The three most important traits I look for in a friend: Honesty, that they are a little further along in their “life station” than me, and that they are creative

A friend I have known for the longest amount of time is: Trish Ventura, who lives in Tucson, AZ

The friend I miss most in my life is Reb

A friend who makes me laugh often is Scott

Two friends to whom I can tell anything are Trish and Scott

Two friends I can go to for advice are Trish and Scott

The best piece of advice they have given me is to be more cautious with who I allow into my close inner circle

A friend I can flirt with is Scott

A friend I should not flirt with as much as I do is Kevin

A friend I would like to kiss is Kevin

A friend I should not have kissed is Reb

A friend I don’t take seriously is Reb

A friend that I lost for a reason other than death is Joel

One trait that I wish they could change is Trish’s need to keep track of the frequency of real phone conversations and Scott’s punctuality when we have something planned

An animal that best describes each of my closest friends is a lion (Trish) and an Owl (Scott)

Parents as friends: My mother was at times during her lifetime considered to be a friend; my father never

My best friend as a child was Trish

My worst enemy as a child was John L

My worst enemy as a teenager was: Gordy Z

My best friend as an adult is Trish

If I could, I would banish my worst enemies to: Volunteer in nursing homes, or animal shelters

I am the type that is likely to: Forgive an enemy, but find it more difficult to forgive myself

A friend who is most like me is: Gary. We have several common interests and rationalize through challenges similarly

The friend who is most unlike me is James. His issues with his personal honesty frustrate me

The friend who uses up most of my energy is Vicky

A friend I will see in hell is Teri

A friend I will see in heaven is Trish

All About Me ~ Part VIII: Ego

I feel my three best qualities are my ability to draw people out (people get comfortable telling me things), on a good day, I’m charismatic, and on most any day, I’m caring

My three worst qualities are: dishonesty (I struggle with this one most days), exaggeration and I perpetuate my low self-esteem. I wish to change all three of these

The words that I feel others would use to describe me are, intelligent, charismatic, unique, special, quite ill

These are the words I would use to describe my ideal self, honest, charismatic and creative

Three things for which I am often complemented are, my cooking, my wardrobe and my personality (of the three, personality is the most important to me)

I received a special compliment once that made me blush. It was from an elderly woman behind me in the checkout line and she said that I have nice skin

An insult that made me burn was each time a family member called me chubby. I would become defensive, explaining I hadn’t gained any weight and outlined a physical fitness program. And if none of that worked, I’d just blame it on the sweater I was wearing

I am far better than most people know at digital photography and editing

The animal that best describes me is a butterfly

I am embarrassed when others talk loud in public areas

I am embarrassed when I experience gas and the associated noises coming from my stomach in a quiet room filled with people

Others are embarrassed when I am sarcastic to them in public

The greatest amount of physical pain I have ever endured was the chest pain I experienced when I nearly died last year from a MRSA infection of my bloodstream and heart

The greatest amounts of emotional pain I have ever endured came from the break up and end of the relationship with Joel

My proudest moment was when Firstar became one of the clients of my business. Scott Mutcher shared that moment with me

The moment I am most ashamed of was Joel discovering that I had taken over $25,000 from our personal accounts without his knowledge, to buy drugs

When I discuss my past careers with others I tend to exaggerate

When I discuss my love life with others I also tend to exaggerate

When telling stories or relaying details of an event I again, tend to exaggerate

If I didn’t have commitments to others, I would move to Paris, France

My best physical feature is my butt

I have never considered plastic surgery and don’t see it happening in the future

At my best, I am most like Oprah

At my worst I am most like Dr. Laura

If I could create my newspaper headline, it would read, “Extra Extra! Mark Schmitz gives up dishonesty”

My most excellent selfless act was bringing Mom and Dad out here to Phoenix at my expense, for vacation
