response to "Life of the Party"
For Yiddim, this reminds me that Torah Services are the Party, and as long as we focus our higher mind (Nefesh Elokeet) and body to live by the Torah Moshe, HaShem allows us to be the "Life of the Party" for Olam haZeh too!!!!

More and more interesting!!
I am getting more convinced that i'm a chaim soul. I know plenty of 'bracha' souls but i wouldn't have pegged them as lazy and constantly late. However that descrpition fits me perfectly! But i don't think i'm a couch potato, If i have free time i'll spend it practicing guitar or trying to create something or taking a long walk. Can't wait for Tov. Once again thanks a bunch for this great series!
