#288: How many hours of television do you watch in a week? A month? A year? Well, that depends on whether the husband and I are binge-watching a show…we might watch a whole season in a week and then not watch any TV at all for a couple of months!
#289: What is the biggest obstacle that stands in your way right now? Probably lack of time. If only I didn’t have to sleep, I could get so much more done.
#290: What do you sometimes pretend you understand that you really don’t? Coding. I do try, but right now I’m happy if I can figure out how to turn a photo into HTML with a clickable link. Past that, my eyes start glazing over.
#291: What do you like most about your job? What do you dislike most about your job? I’ve made a couple of great friends at my job. But I dislike pretty much everything else about it—the hours, the overall boredom of it, etc. I’d prefer something more creative.
#292: What’s something new you recently learned about yourself? That I only like raking up all those pretty autumn leaves in theory. I recently spent three hours spent raking the yard, only to watch a lot of the golden, crunchable, pesky damn autumn leaves blow right back into the yard in a windstorm. Now I think I would be happy to pay someone else to do it.
#293: In one sentence, how would you describe your relationship with your mother? I’d say we’re good friends. :)
#294: What was the most defining moment in your life during this past year? When I sat down and figured out exactly what I needed to do to move forward on the career path that would make me happiest. I knew I wanted to move into writing full-time but I’d been wavering over whether that was a “real” enough job and whether I shouldn’t pursue something else. But I felt like I got so much confirmation from the universe that the plans I was making were worth pursuing, and I’m so much happier already.
