330: What confuses you? HTML. Oh my god. WordPress gives me headaches.
331: In what way are you your own worst enemy? I am my own worst critic. It hampers me from taking chances on what I want because I’m so full of self-doubt.
332: When did you not speak up when you should have? There was one time recently when my boss asked me point-blank why I wasn’t happy with my job anymore and I passed it off with a generic answer instead of telling him exactly what dissatisfied me and what I’d like to change. Later I did have a more in-depth talk with him and a few things changed for the better, but it taught me a good lesson about speaking up when you’re unhappy. If you don’t say anything, nothing can change.
333: What is your favorite quote? Audaces fortuna iuvat (“fortune favors the bold”). I have this tattooed on my ribs. I need the reminder when I start to doubt myself (see #331).
334: What is your favorite fictional story? (novel, movie, fairytale, etc.) I love The Princess Bride, which is really sappy (“true love”) but what can I say, the blurb is right when they say it has all the elements: adventure, romance, danger, heroism, etc.
335: Where or who do you turn to when you need good advice? Depends on what I need advice about, but I have a few close friends who give good advice on everything from cats to money to work relationships.
336: What artistic medium do you use to express yourself? Writing. But also music, even though I’m not so good at playing the piano as I used to be and I can’t sing at all.
