What are you most proud of?
My Master’s Degree in Linguistics. I started graduate school when I was 21 and pregnant and finally finished it when I was 25 with a four-year-old. I persevered through many obstacles, and the experience taught me not only about the languages of the world, but about myself and my own strengths.
Most treasured possession?
I once had a dream that my house was on fire, and I only had time to grab one thing, so I grabbed my Cat Dress from Anthropologie. It’s a great dress! You’d do the same.
What do you value most in friends?
The ability to truly listen and empathize.
“I just have a lot of feelings!”
I’m a whiz at computer solitaire. My fastest win was 52 seconds.
1. Restore a vintage VW Bug for myself
2. Run the Boston Marathon someday
3. Learn more languages
In the words of my Charles, “Hi! I’m Mom, and I’m allergic to everything I eat!”
I have several food allergies, I have seasonal allergies, and I’m allergic to like all animals. Basically my immune system won’t be winning any awards!
