How do you feel about sharing your computer or phone password with your partner?

I’m fine with it. We’re both the non-snooping type — I know that runs counter to the whole “I love eavesdropping on random conversations” thing but what can I say, I’m a complicated girl. Besides, I can’t think of anything on there I’d mind him seeing.

What is the greatest struggle you’ve overcome? (This isn’t meant to be invasive, just use general terms if you’d like.  Or if not, feel free to pass on the question. That’s allowed too.)

At the moment I’m feeling how much I struggle with superlatives! Finding a way to come out the other side after losing my mom was a battle. I’ve also faced down some health crises and a tough run with depression so those are contenders for this answer too.

If heaven is real and you died tomorrow, do you think you would get in? Why or why not? (this is purely speculation, no bias if you don’t believe)

I think I would. I’m not perfect by a long shot but I don’t have evil in my heart and I feel like that’s the pearly gate dealbreaker.

What makes you feel like you really need to be alone?

Sometimes I’ll feel an overwhelming sense of doneness with the world. Everything scrapes my nerves raw and when that happens I make space around myself so I don’t say something I’ll regret.

Do you have any traditions around this time of year?

Not really. Sometimes we’ll stumble into a fall-like activity — something like a bonfire or football game — but there’s nothing we do annually in October. We’re extraordinarily boring like that.
