What was your favorite pastime as a young child?
What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done lately?
Are you more of a morning or a night person?

If you spent the day in NYC what would you do?
If you were telling someone what to do in NYC if they were visiting it for the first time what would you tell them to do?
1. I wish I could tell myself to chill on the things I don't already know.
2. Right now I wanna head to NYC to be with my new niece. But their lockdown has been extended to mid-June.
3. I would tell them to take a full day for the Statue of Liberty or just look at it during a free ride on the Staten Island Fairy. Buy food and other items in the outer boroughs when you can because it will be cheaper than buying in Manhatten. The Top of the Rock and the Empire State building cost the same but the view and expire on the Top of the Rock is better. Don't stay in Manhatten. Stay in outer boroughs. Brooklyn's Prospect Park and Manhatten's Central Park have the same designer and even he thought Prospect Park was the better park and he was so right.

1. It was reading. I wanted to learn and escape my then very boring life.
2. I think using my mortar and pestle when a recipe called for a food processor. The two give different textures to the types of paste they produce but I've never regretted using the mortar and pestle.

Don't stop in the middle of Grand Central Terminal. All the non-torists are rushing around to get to their places and will keep going whether you're in their way or not. Also don't spend your entire trip in Manhatten. Don't try to park your car in Manhatten; you can't afford it. Don't forget to cross bike lanes with the same caution as a street with cars. Avoid using yellow cabs.

1. Coming up with a charcuterie board was hard because of my renal diet but I would start with low sodium Triscuits and pitta, sun-dried tomatoes, apples, almond butter, and Baby Bells.
2. Yes
3. Being part of the health solutions for patients while not being sueable for malpractice.
4. Insurance setting high prices, getting blamed for things I can't control (price, laws etc.)

1. Remind them I'm bound by laws because most things that get patients panties in a not I can't help them with by law. No more refills? Call your doctor as I can't dispense without a prescription. Long line? Ok not a legal issue but you can come work here and fix the understaffing issues. (That's how I got started doing this. It didn't fix the understaffing.)
2. I would love to go to Japan and do 2 things. a) Go to the church started by my pastor's son-in-law in the rural mountains. b) Go to a Godzilla convention.
3. Fire nation

1. A unicorn
2. I used to play piano but I haven't had access to a keyboard since I got married. I have a mandolin but only recently got it from my old place and can hardly keep it in tune.
3. Yes, both alto and soprano.

1. Sir is my favourite thing to own :anxious:
2. Onions and peppers in tomato sauce over pasta.
3. I have issues eating fries once cold for some reason. Also, I dare anyone to eat (not drink) ice cream warm.

1. Macadamia nut
2. It depends on what the kid needs it for. I had political gigs before I was 18 so GPS became important since I was travelling all over the NYC.
3. Yes. I've still had my job this whole time.

How do you deal with hard emotions, talk to people about them, just sit with them, etc?
Cold beach or warm beach? I.e. Maine beach vs Florida beach
What is your favorite emotion?
What's something you would do different than your parents when raising children?

1. I have learned that I'm not the best at knowing if I'm even having difficult emotions. So Sir asks me what's wrong and I can take as long as 24 hours of psycho annalizing myself to figure what is wrong. Talking to anybody other than God during this time usually isn't helpful since it is all in my heart and God sees that much better than any human.
2. I'm going to say warm because the "beaches" of Nova Scotia are not impressive. The water is so cold and the coast is so rocky and not sandy.
3. My favourite emotion is sadness. From there you don't have to fear the other emotions taking its place or feel the over encumbering pressure of ambition. From sadness, God's path can speak without my pride drowning Him out leading to His peace in His timing.

Some psychologist would be overjoyed to see this post and poke at me further I know it.

What's the most challenging thing you've ever taught yourself to do?
Do you like Reddit? (I was personally sad to see so many message boards passed over in favor of Reddit. I don't really like Reddit at all, but I was curious what other people's opinions might be.)
Brownies or blondies? With or without ice cream on top?

1. Allegation alteration. I learned it for my National Certification exam but it is never used in basic retail pharmacy. Basically, if a doctor orders a compound of 45% solution of med but the pharmacy only has 12% and 50% ready in the pharmacy, the formula informs the compounding pharmacist or tech how much of each solution to use to get 45% as the doctor ordered.
2. I do like Reddit but I'm not hanging out on the "normal" boards. My favourite boards are r/Christianmarriage, r/endometriosis, r/pharmacy, r/pharmacytech, r/[my employer], r/askDocs, r/noburp, and r/legaladvice. It is nice to have everything in the same place and customise it for my interests. Who else has my exact mix of followed boards? Likeky no one.
3. Brownies. Unfortunately, I can't have ice cream.

Danadelfos, I will get to you tomorrow. I ran out of time tonight and have a job interview in the morning.

1. I would never want to feel guilt again.
2. I'll take a)English (a freebie), b) Spanish (I need to prove I'm Hispanic sometimes), and c) Hebrew
3. I really don't have one though admittedly I would like to hang out with Zackary Levi as he is peek nerd.
4. I don't think you should have any more than 2 per litter box. Experts disagree with me and stay 1 per floor, per cat, +1. So the question really should be how many littler can you put in your house and how many are you willing to change.
5. I would like Gospel included so as many can follow me as possible and maybe something about my pernil being missed at Thanksgiving.
6. Parents letting their kids play without fear without it being because of neglect.
