My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Sense of humor, empathy, and compassion

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I had to consult my husband on this one, and he said it’s that I don’t take myself too seriously.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I tend to get wrapped up in my own head and not notice things and people around me. If I’m really involved in what I’m doing, I forget things people say in about half a second. It’s great for focus, but sometimes it comes across as thoughtlessness, and I wonder if I’m being a jerk.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Awesome. Seriously. I also use parentheses way too much (or maybe just enough).
