Do you have another window or tab open? If so, what are they for? Shockingly, I’ve only got one tab open right now. This is not normal for me!
Do you like to cook/bake? I like to bake, but I LOVE to cook. I’m better at cooking than baking. Baking is usually so exact—measurements, temperatures, baking times, etc. I have more baking disappointments than cooking disappointments. What I love to do is make things like homemade soups and stews where I can just keep chopping things up and tossing them in and at the end of it all I have something comforting and delicious.
What are you currently listening to? I can hear the furnace running. It’s also really windy right now and I can hear some of the windows rattling a bit.
How long have you lived in the house you live in? It will be 15 years this July! Buying this house completely on my own with no help from anyone was a huge “Wow, I am really a grownup” moment for me.
Are you tired? Not yet—it’s early! Give me a few hours . . .
Do you pick your words carefully, or just tend to blurt everything out? Depends on the situation and how comfortable I am with the people around me.
Are you nice to everyone? I’ve got to admit that there are a couple of people who I am struggling to just act neutrally towards right now. It’s a workplace situation so I can’t blatantly be “not nice” but I’m definitely not going out of my way to initiate any niceness, either.
Have you ever tripped in public? Of course!
Are you a morning person or a night person? I used to be a total night owl. Now, if I’m up past 10pm that’s late for me. These days I’m really productive in the morning and then it starts slowly going downhill around 3pm.
Is it easier to forgive or forget? I’ve gotten a lot better at forgiving over the past couple of years, but I’m not sure forgetting is always a good thing. Lessons can be lost if you forget . . .
Is there something that’s recently shocked you? I was shocked this past week at a betrayal that happened in my workplace–although, in retrospect, I guess I shouldn’t have been shocked at all. I am trying SO HARD to believe in karma . . .
Which is harder: walking away from somebody you love or coming back? Walking away can be gut-wrenching, even when you know it’s the right thing.
What were you doing at midnight last night? At midnight last night I’d been asleep for about 2 hours.
What color are your eyes? Blue
