  10. A co-worker and I took a look at this book and thought, "are we really smart enough?" after reading some of the questions within. I work in a bookstore, and yes, that is a dream, but my dream would be to be a published writer, writing my way through life.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
