What should you get rid off, that would make your new year better, and why? (Don’t say Covid-19, we all want to get rid of the dang virus)
I wouldn’t mind getting rid of some of the stuff occupying my closet and I’m not talking about clothes. I donated 5 bags of clothes last year and I’ve been thinking of selling of the things in my closet like two camera lenses for a camera I can no longer use due to a moldy sensor and a stereo set from way back when listening CDs was popular.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
The most daring thing I can think of is ending a month with less than $100 in my bank account. I did that several times last year and even though it was after doing some meticulous calculation that I decided to do that, it made me feel incredible uncomfortable and anxious. I don’t do that anymore now. Now I typically leave about $200 in there. Still risky but I think I can do more than $100.
Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken?
Be smart and think hard before every move.
On a scale of 1-10 how funny would you say you are? (this does not mean ‘smell’ or looks; because this is a judgment free blog!)
I would probably give myself a 3 or 4. I try to be funny and sometimes I try too hard and by the time the funny thought becomes words, it’s all jumbled and it’s no longer funny.
Tell everyone something that you found personally lifted your spirits!
- Getting time for a quiet moment with my thoughts
- Spending time with a paperback book – I’m old-fashioned, I guess.
- Window-shopping on Amazon – I don’t know how it lifts my mood but it does and it helps me set goals of what to buy next.
