Questions (and Answers) v.10
What's the most interesting thing you've ever done?
I must not be a very exciting person, because this one took a lot of thinking. When I was in high school, I took an awesome trip to England, France, and Italy, and my favorite part was the day or two we spent on the island of Capri. My friends and I wandered off to the beach and ended up jumping off some rocks into the sea, which at the time seemed incredibly exotic, sexy, dangerous, and excting. (I still kind of think it was.)
I actually wrote about it once in college:
As a full-time blogger who works at home, what is your time management like?
What a question! Like everyone else, I want to be as productive and time-efficient as possible, but a lot of days I struggle to actually make it happen. Ironically, adding a few extra things to my life (Ender and a daily barre practice) has made me into a much better user of time.
I've always been a morning person but I used to have much more of a slow start to my day. Now I write a to-do list every night for the next day, and as soon as I wake up and take the dog out, I sit down at my computer and try to check off as many little things as possible. My day always looks a little different, but generally I'm up at 7, working by 8, heading to barre at 9:30, then back home to work from 11-5ish, with some breaks in between for walking or playing with Ender.
I think working from home (and for yourself) is a lot more effective when you try to keep normal business hours, but it's easy to get caught up in the flexibility of all of it, and there are definitely a few days a week where I don't get much done in the afternoon and find myself at the computer well after 11PM.
Have you ever had surgery or broken a bone?
Other than my wisdome teeth, no--I've been really lucky and haven't had any surgeries. I broke my right leg when I was in fourth grade, and ended up with a stress fracture in the same spot eight years later (I don't think they were related, just a strange coincidence).
What's something most people don't know about you?
How about three? I totally believe in mediums, I don't know how to use a camera unless it's in automatic, and although space exploration fascinates me, it is among my greatest fears.
Your turn! I want to know your answers, too. If you want to play along, leave a comment; and if you have a question you'd like me to include next time, let me know!
