More 5 Questions!

As referenced previously here.

ϟ What are you FREAKISHLY good at?

Oh man, not just good but FREAKISHLY good. Um. Walking through a city. That’s the first thing I could think of. I’m really good at looking like I know where I’m going, even when I don’t, and moving with the flow of a crowd. I never felt stressed out in NYC when trying to find a location.

ϟ What’s one dream that you’ve tucked away, for the moment? How come?

Being debt-free. I’m trying to just live day to day, and frankly the thought of my student loans stresses me out.

ϟ What are you STARVING for?

I don’t think I’m starving for anything right now. I feel pretty satisfied with how things are going, and I seem to have a handle on balancing work, writing, crafting, etc. But I’m making a stink-face writing this, so…don’t know if that’s a good thing.

ϟ If you could have tea with one fictional character, who would it be?

Gandalf. Totally. I could ask him about wizard stuff all day.

ϟ Do you have a morning ritual?

I am not good at mornings. I think I pretty much get up everyday, sit on the couch in a blanket, and look at my phone or tablet. Sometimes I just go back to sleep — as sad as it is, I actually have an alarm on my devices so I won’t be late for work (I work from home). I love the idea of having a morning ritual, but it just is not in the cards for me, I think.

I love this…

5 Questions

I got these questions from Alexandra Franzen, who has a fantastic blog and talks about a lot of helpful stuff, so you should check it out. Fo sho. The 100 questions I am pulling from are right here. Wouldn’t it be cool if we all started answering them? I think it would be cool.

ϟ What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?

I literally just found this again the other day. My friend Nathan said this to me when I was in college, and it has always stuck with me. I also feel like it is something that is really super true, now, almost a decade later.

"Eventually you’ll decide you can actually handle this [life]. Then I fear for the world."

ϟ What’s one thing you’re deeply proud of — but would never put on your résumé?

My handwriting. Y’all, my handwriting - print and cursive - is awesome.

ϟ What’s the most out-of-character choice you’ve ever made?

I’m going to go with almost all the jobs I’ve held since I got out of college. Like, none of them are even in my wheelhouse. And I think sometimes that’s a little nice because I never feel like I’m in a creative competition with anyone I’m working with. Also, it makes me feel like I have a secret identity: mild-mannered accountant by day, wild punk rockstar vigilante by night!

ϟ If a mysterious benefactor wrote you a check for $5,000 and said, “Help me solve a problem — any problem!” … what would you do with him or her?

This one is tough. My immediate response was, “That will help solve the problem of ‘where’s the rent check?’ All done!”

But no. After giving it some thought, I think I would want to invest in bringing Gregory Kloehn's Homeless Homes Project to other cities in the United States. I’ve lived in a lot of places where I think people would benefit a lot from having them.

ϟ What’s going to be carved on your (hypothetical) tombstone?

"Katie Pugh: 1984-2150. So interesting that I bet you wish you knew her."
