Old age. If you're really just cranking along I don't see a pressing reason why your life should end without your specific intent.

What adventures do you want to have before you die?

Jim Carrey as The Riddler because then it'd be like I was reading *everyone's* minds and that didn't end badly at all.

A salad with meat, which has been a pretty consistent dinner over the last month. I'm diggin' the consistency.

If you could only hear one voice that you are familiar with for the rest of your life from the mouth of all people, whose would it be?

What is your longest running friendship?

The friendship I have with my sister <3 Strong time advantage there though.

If you could overthrow any government in the world, which one would you replace?

How would you know if you were breathing incorrectly?

I'm pretty sure I could be optimizing more here. Breathing is pretty important and I do it fairly frequently.

What's your long term advantage?

I freakin' love building stuff, more than any other activity (including ziplining, which is just like, one of the most fun things you can do).

What are the areas in your life that you can’t help yourself from optimizing?

Any interaction I have with a machine can be optimized 🤓

Are you doing this for Present You or Future You?

I feel like *most* of what I do is for future me.

What do you enjoy refining?


What is something that feels productive to you in the moment, but usually ends up wasting time and energy?

Agonizing over purchasing decisions. Just buy it and if it's bad get a different one.

If wealth is the power to choose, in which areas of your life are you wealthy?

I'm awash in time to work on what I want to work on. It's a luxury and a privilege I appreciate immensely.

How have you changed over the years as a daughter or son?

I've gotten much better at establishing healthy boundaries.

My journaling and emails habits have fallen off the wagon a bit.

What part of your work routine do you find is working best?

Long stretched of focused uninterrupted work time.

A pine forest right after it rains.

If someone was doing a sports recap of your life this last week, what would be on it?

BATMAAAAAAN! dunnanananananananananananananananananananananana BATMAN!!!

If you could live during any other period in history, when would you choose to live, and why?
