What is your idea of perfect happiness? Sitting around a campfire making S'mores with my nieces and nephews.

What is your greatest fear? Furry spiders. I shudder simply typing those two words.

Which living person do you most admire? My sister.

What is the trait you hate most in yourself? I can be very impatient at times.

What is the trait you hate most in others? Impatience!

If you suddenly had an extra room in your house, what would you do with it? I would line the walls with built in bookshelves, fill them with my favorite books, put a chaise lounge and a large desk in there and have my own personal library/haven.

It's 7 a.m. Monday. How are you feeling? Like I need one more day to prepare for the week.

Introvert or extrovert? I am an introvert by nature but can be quite the extrovert on occasion.

What would you say to your 16-year-old self? Don't take yourself so seriously, have fun.

What one habit do you wish you could break? Facebook!

What is it about Facebook you find addictive? I am drawn to FB every night to check out what is happening with my friends and family. While I always intend to make the visit short I often get caught up responding to posts, commenting on pictures, etc., and before I know it I've lost the entire evening.

What is something most people don't know about you? That I take improv classes and LOVE it.

Favorite movie: Tombstone.

What's one thing you can do now that you couldn't do 20 years ago? Eat sushi. I used to think it was gross, now I can't get enough of it.

Favorite place to spend money: Now that Borders is gone, Barnes & Noble gets a good chunk of my spending money.

Where would you like to be when you're 90? Relaxing somewhere up north.
