A quote you like to live by; life mantra
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view . . . until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” – To Kill a Mocking Bird. I love this quote because if you stop taking things personally, it’s a lot easier to show empathy for others and realize they’re likely doing something hurtful because something is wrong in their lives that you’re not aware of.
Favorite Sports Team
I don’t watch sports!
“When Harry Met Sally” or “The Neverending Story”
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I know how to woodcarve! My father is an artist and taught me how to carve with chisels/gouges when I was in high school.
