When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

Pen.  Which is weird because I’m absolutely positively nutty about mistakes.  I can handle a scratch out or two, but much more than that and I’m fighting an itchy hand longing to throw the whole thing out and start again.  Still, I prefer the feel of a pen gliding across the paper to pencil scratches.

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

I’d choose singer.  Let’s put aside the fact that this simply is a lot more likely (hello, two left feet) and look at the other reasons: singing brings me joy, I’ve always wanted to have one of those incredible voices that stops people in their tracks, and there are powerhouse singers who are able to share their talent for many years.

If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?

Shoot, you’d think this would be an easy question considering I have an opinion on most everything except sports teams, but I’m drawing a blank.  I suppose I’d say basically any human rights issue.

What are you a โ€œnaturalโ€ at doing?

Sprints.  I’ve always been fast, then I ran track my senior year and got my form tweaked a little so I improved even more.  I took off running at the dog park last week – I’d forgotten how good it feels to hit that moment when your stride is long and you feel like you’re flying.  Unfortunately I’m (ahem) older so something usually ends up aching these days.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

We spent some time at the lake last week, which is always a good way to decompress.  I saw herons, hawks, turtles, geese, butterflies, and a really cool blue-tailed skink.  Plus I got to watch a dog leap into the lake to swim after a couple of Canadian geese.

Can you believe I had to look at my calendar to see what’s going on this week?!  I’ve been two steps behind for a few days now.  This week I’m looking forward to having some time just for myself.
