Absolutely, I won’t be supporting their website for another minute. Awful judgement on their part and I hope the amount of business they get in the future reflects it.

If you had to choose one food to live on for the rest of your entire life, what would it be and why would you choose it?

That’s a toss up between cucumbers, honey nut chex mix, bell peppers, mushrooms, and a chicken & rice bowl I get from a Japanese place near my house haha I really don’t know if I can pick but I guess I would say chicken? because you can do a lot of things with chicken like baked chicken, grilled chicken, chicken tacos, chicken enchiladas, chicken caesar salad, and so much more… but that might be stretching the question a little far haha so really I don’t know.

What do you think is the most important thing in life?

Asked by Anonymous

Perspective.

If you think about it, there’s so much unnecessary suffering in this world and the only way to do something about it is to first understand where it comes from. People can say “everyone is different” all day long, but that only briefly touches on the essence of what we’re about as human beings and what it means to view the world from every perspective. 

Life is also all about relationships, human interaction, and communication. I know you’ve all been somewhere and seen someone who appears to be a lot different than you. Naturally, you write that person off and tell yourself that they’re weird or don’t belong. I think it’s important to talk to those people and appreciate the fact that everyone comes from somewhere different and has known different things for their entire life. I’m not saying you have to be best friends with that person, but you’re absolutely missing out if you pass up the opportunity to talk to someone because you never know what you may gain.

I believe that the choices we make as individuals matter more than we realize and you could miss out on meeting your future husband, wife, or best friend simply because of a judgmental thought in your mind.

You can always sit back and just watch the world go by or you can get out there and interact with others while you have the chance because life is short and too many people pass up opportunities that could turn into the best day of their life, or even just an interesting thought or new way to look at things. Every person that you pass on the street has something to offer, whether that’s life lessons, advice, knowledge, or even happiness, so I encourage every single one of you to get out there and try to view things in a different persecutive for at least a day or two. It could open up doors you never imagined. 

I don’t think one person can change the world by him or herself, but if we all took the time to appreciate what other people do and why people do those things, the world would be a much better place. Perspective is all it takes.

Deep question, what's your idea of equality and do you want equality in the world?

Asked by Anonymous

I believe in equality of opportunity, but that doesn’t always mean equality of outcome. No matter your race, gender, ethnicity, size, or class, I think that everyone should be given the same rights and privileges to help them succeed, provided that they work hard. I believing in working for what you want and not waiting for things to be handed to you. 

For anon there's a documentary of the British team before the 08 Olympics and it's the best one I've ever seen.

Thank you!

What do you believe to be the meaning of life?

Asked by Anonymous

The meaning of life is whatever you want it to be. Everyone has something they want to accomplish or something they enjoy doing, so it could be something as simple as a goal, but I believe that everyone should experiment and find their own meaning of life because there’s no wrong answer. I don’t know if I’ve found my true meaning of life yet, but I just want to enjoy the time I have and make as many memories as possible along the way. I hope to help others accomplish their dreams, while building relationships with people and interacting in a way that allows me to see everything life has to offer.

Do you know of any good gymnastics documentaries?

Asked by Anonymous

I think you’ll find a few if you just search it on YouTube!

The one that really comes to mind is “Aly Raisman - Quest for Gold”

That one was pretty good I guess. It’s not like super deep or anything but it shows a good look at her life leading up to London and stuff like that.

I know there’s a Magnificent 7 documentary out there too!

Other than that, there’s definitely some that may not be top notch, but you never know what you’ll find.

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help! I haven’t spent much time looking around at gym documentaries, but if you like sports in general, ESPN 30 for 30 has some really good and inspiring stuff.
