#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.
Love you, dear “friend” !! xo

Agh, I can’t even imagine raking up leaves and liking it. XD We live under a huge gum tree that just sheds aaaall year round and we’re constantly blowing them off the driveaway. I couldn’t imagine doing it with a broom or rake though. haha. Ahem.
I LOVE THAT GIF.
Ohh, that’s awesome about going to pursue writing as a career! :D YAY. That’s my ultimate dream too. :’)
I know I’ve seen pics of gum trees before and yet every time I hear about them, I imagine them raining Juicy Fruit or something. Obviously I’m a little obsessed with food!!
ISN’T THAT GIF AMAZING? It sums up my life.
I’d have pretty much the same answers to all of these questions, especially lack of time being the biggest obstacle. I wish you luck with your writing!
Thank you! :)
You will definitely be a famous writer someday soon. I know it. And I clearly lack time as well. Why do I need so much sleep?
Aw, thanks! I agree, why do we have to sleep so much? It takes up way too much time!
