  3. That was interesting! I think I like no. 46 th best. Yes Steve Jobs was the man. I think my favorite quote from him was the one he used at the Stanford commencement address -something about following your intuition and heart as it always knows what’s best for you.

    Additionally, Thursday is my favorite day of the week as I was born on a Thursday, and this astrology report I got said it was my “luckiest” day so I kind of just ran with it 🙂

    Honestly, it’s a lovely idea and could be a great conversation stirrer at a house party. I just feel that there is so much information on us on the internet that I wouldn’t want to add more to it. That said, it was a pleasure learning more about you. 🙂
