What is the title of the best book you have ever read? Why is it the "best?"
Angela's Ashes - I do most of my reading for pleasure via audiobooks. This was by far the best. It was the author's autobiography and was read by him. Simply awesome!
If they made a movie of your life, what genre would it be, and who would be cast in the lead?
A movie about my life would definitely be a drama. Hopefully, Sandra Bullock would play the role of my character.
If you could travel back in time and meet yourself as a 10-year-old, what advice would you give yourself?
Always, always be honest with others - and yourself. Try to quietly lead, and not be led.
