you're it

Alright, it happened to me, and now it's happening to you. If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged and get to answering these questions on your own blog!

1. What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why?
Working at a home for troubled boys, and creating new ways to teach material to special ed kids, just because both are so darn rewarding.

2. Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did?
Dancing. I have no idea what has made me so hesitant now. Drawing and singing would be right up there, too.

3. Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off?
Work on publishing some writing. There are so many more, but I'll spare you the lengthy list.

4. What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why?
I'd love to learn to play the guitar, simply because I am a lover of music and would enjoy being able to play at the drop of a hat. I'd like to improve on my knowledge of outdoor skills--all the cool things that open doors for even greater adventure.

5. If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn?
For today, I'd want to sit at the feet of John Chrysostom, a monk, bishop, and preacher who lived in the 4th century. I'd want to learn what it means to live in simplicty and humility, yet speak out boldy against injustice.

6. What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?
compassionate, authentic, adventurous

7. Now list two more words you wish described you…
disciplined, peaceful

8. What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes)
learning (writing is a outgrowth), the poor/overlooked/ashamed, and adventure

9. Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone.
What do you want your legacy to be?

Honesty and freedom, leading to deeper love and compassion. I want the church to be a little more authentic because I was there, and for the world to feel more accepted because I shared my own junk and learned to see people, not failures.
