My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I say "arbitrary" way too much these days. I guess I'm just noticing how many things we take for granted as fact have no real basis in reality. They're just...arbitrarily decided.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Transforming myself from the sour, cynical pessimist I was throughout my teens into someone with a lust for life and hope for the future.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. See my "motto and maxim" answer. Regret is pointless. I never do anything without first deciding to do it based on facts and feelings, and if it doesn't work out how I hoped, oh well, there's another notch on my experience belt.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I absolutely can't answer this question. My favorite songs change every year. One that has consistently moved me for a long time, though, is "Let Down" by Radiohead.
