I try to live with gratitude, because even though being quirky is a value available to everyone, not everyone knows how to embrace it.
:: Lifestyle ::
What does it mean to you to be quirky and what do you love about it?
To me it means thinking for myself and making my own decisions. I also have coffee and a pastry every day at 3pm. I love these things because letting someone else make your decisions is a terrible idea, and coffee + pastry is a great idea.
What’s a secret, unusual talent that you have?
I’ve always wished for invisibility. But since that hasn’t arrived yet, I’m often able to figure out alternative or unconventional ways to accomplish big goals.
:: Quest ::
Where do you find your mojo?

Explain one experiment you’ve done that changed your life:
Cold showers? Paleo? I’m not a fan of either of those. But more than six years ago I started writing 1,000 words a day. It’s safe to say that practice has changed my life!

How do you celebrate the deliciousness of being quirky?
I try to live with gratitude, because even though being quirky is a value available to everyone, not everyone knows how to embrace it. Fortunately I found it and I’m very glad I did.
