Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

Sunny with a chance of snow.  Always cold, please!

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

I am lucky to have relatively sfrizzy hair, anne hathawaytraight agreeable hair.  It’s not fussy with a blow dryer, tolerates the weather, and is easily tamed the few times a year I take a straightener to it, so long is preferred.  I’ve tried short hair in the past, but it ends up requiring more work on my end, which I am just not about.  That’s time better spent sleeping…

What is your favorite month of the year?

December.  I love decorating for Christmas, holiday baking, and getting forced to slow down and remember the important things in life…presents! 😛christmas, lights

What is the easiest way for you to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

Writing it down, even imaginarily.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written equations in thin air, only to erase with a swipe of the hand.  If what I’m learning is hands-on though, like lab equipment maintenance of any kind, I am much better off doing it myself!   big bang theory, sheldon

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that I rocked my 10k, without injury and WITH a pretty respectable pace by my standards.  I am also grateful that the semester ended (yesterday) and I have one month of freedom before returning back to the books for my Chem Stats summer course.  With this time off, I am looking forward to puzzling, leisure reading, camping, and Cubs games 😀10k, race, finish line, fitness
