Best and Worst
1. What's the best place you ever lived? the worst? Best- I'd have to say my hometown, NYC. I'd never lived anywhere else till I moved to Florida when I was 22. Doesn't matter what borough (even Staten Island lol), I love NY. Worst- Altamonte Springs, Florida. This is a town right outside of Orlando. Oh the congestion! Oh the traffic! ick. I'm much happier now that we are in a small town.
2. What's the best place you ever visited on holiday/vacation? the worst? Best- the three times I've visited Italy. I've been to other places that were loads of fun, but Italy is my dream place to live. Worst- probably the time that my husband insisted we go camping in the middle of the summer in Florida. In a tent. I made him drive us home at about midnight because I just could not fall asleep in that heat!
3. What's the best job you ever had? the worst? Gah. I can name worst jobs easily. Probably anything in retail. Yes, there were some rewarding moments but for the most part, just ick.
Best- sigh. I feel compelled to say that my current job is best. It does give me a lot of flexiblity as far as time off, or bringing my kids. I work for my dad, who is a freelance nature photographer. However, I'm helping him live his dream, and I'm not living my own.
The one I loved the best was working on an island researching Common Terns (see question 5 for more details)
4. What's your best talent or ability? your worst? Talent, hmm. I guess a willingness to try new things (usually involving craft or cooking!). I'm determined. Not sure these are talents, but...
worst: being stubborn, moody.
5. What's the best decision you ever made? the worst? Best- although I was terrified, I decided to work as an intern on an island off of Long Island collecting data about nesting birds. Three summers later I met my husband. This experience taught me to take risks. Worst- I really can't think of one. How 'bout a regret instead? I regret being so afraid that my mom would say no that I didn't ask her for $3 to buy a second-hand Barbie town-house at our class fundraiser/garage sale for Unicef in 3rd grade. This memory makes me cry to this day, for many reasons :(
Bonus (so we can end on a positive note!): What's one good thing about you that isn't covered in the questions above, but that you'd like to share with the world? I love to read, I'm very sensitive and empathetic, and have two amazing kids.
