1. What’s your favorite thing on YouTube?
Currently, this 8 second video.
I work in IT and support this application, so it’s kinda funny that someone made a YouTube video about blowing it up. It’s actually a pretty good program and I love being a part of the project. I was sent the link by one of our interns.
I don’t really watch anything on YouTube all that often unless someone sends me a link. I do, however, subscribe to a few channels and check in on them periodically.
My parish has a YouTube and every month my priests make a new video. I watch these as soon as they come out.
There’s a girl named Alejandra with a Home Organizing channel which fascinates me – probably because I’d love my house to be this organized, yet know that I’ll never actually get around to doing it.
Arturo Trejo is just hilarious. If you want a laugh, check him out.
And I find ASAP Science to be informative and amusing. I haven’t watched one of their clips in a few months, so I don’t remember if they are kid-safe or a little off-color, so use discretion and pre-screen before showing them to kids. (That’s probably true with all videos….)
[We will see if I've finally figured out how to embed video on this blog...]
2. Who taught you to drive?
My dad taught us the basics growing up, and made sure that I knew how a car worked and had some basic maintenance skills before I got my driver’s license. Then, I went through the Driver’s Ed program offered by the public school system. (Remember Mr. Canjar?) My mom supervised most of my “in training” hours. She was pretty relaxed about it, which was good. I was a good student, but I remember really worrying about passing. In high school, it was a point of pride to drive EXACTLY at the speed limit and follow all the rules of the road, no matter how much my friends wanted to get somewhere just a little faster. And this in a bright red Firebird.
3. What’s your favorite thing to cook?
I have a recipe for lasagna that everyone seems to love, so I like making that when I have people come over.
4. Are you a hugger or a non-hugger? Why?
I’m a pretty huggy person, although I tend to hold back if I’m not sure if *you* are a huggy person.
5. Where do you pray best?
In a chapel. I prefer to be by myself when I pray. It tends to get uncomfortable for me sitting for long periods of time, but I feel weird about walking around when there are other people trying to pray.
6. When is the last time you saw/spoke to your grandparents?
My last grandparent died in 2009, and I hadn’t really seen him all that often prior to that. I saw him in the hospital that year, but I can’t remember the last time I really talked to him. He wasn’t really the type to have a conversation with us. So, probably my other grandfather, shortly before he died when he was staying at my parents’ house. I was in college, but had come home and he was awake — I think pain was keeping him up. My parents were asleep and I went into the living room and talked with him for a while. It was really hard to see him in pain like that, but I was glad that I could spend time with him and talk about it.
