#295: What’s the number one change you need to make in your life in the next twelve months? I need to really commit more time to writing. Part of it is just developing the discipline to sit my butt down and do it!
#296: What makes you feel secure? Being tucked up in bed at home with the cats.
#297: What is your favorite sound? Currently, the dryer running. For some reason I find it comforting.
#298: What are the top three qualities you look for in a friend? A good sense of humor, compassion (for humans and animals alike), and a love of books.
#299: What simple gesture have you recently witnessed that renewed your hope in humanity? We had a horrible storm here in the PNW last week that left nearly 200,000 people without power, some for nearly a week. (We were lucky enough to not suffer a power loss and ended up with a few friends staying over until their power was back on, which is why I haven’t posted in several days—too busy!) Lots of my coworkers posted on Facebook or at work to find out who needed a place to stay until their power was back. It was great to see everyone looking out for each other, even if it meant cramming people in on air mattresses.
#300: What is your favorite smell? Fresh baked bread—my mom baked all of our bread from scratch when I was a kid, so it reminds me of my childhood.
#301: What recent memory makes you smile the most? Spending the weekend curled up watching movies with the husband. The movies weren’t amazing, but we always have fun spending time together.
