I Wish I Were Better at...

Being able to focus on things I don’t like doing.
Always willing to talk about...

Life, how others are doing & feeling, us, people, and people coming together.
Bad Habit

Buying things and not returning them.
Pet Peeve

People talking behind others’ backs instead of approaching a person directly.
Spirit Animal

Bird. I love the way they can look over everything and get a global picture but can also swoop down and grab something.
