First time in the morning:

Something you'd never do or give up for money:
Doing something you would regret
Have you experienced unrequited love, and if so what did you do about it:
When I was 9 years old, I was in love with an English girl. She wasn’t interested at first, so I gave her everything I had in an envelope which consisted of my artwork and my pocket money. Unfortunately, she still did not want to talk with me.
