I love people. I am fascinated by the human condition. I love to observe how we all try to make it through this crazy world and the weird and interesting things we do to keep ourselves busy. On vacations, I am constantly finding the biggest city parks where I can sit and observe. I love talk shows and games shows where I get to watch people being themselves.
So when I started this blog, I knew I wanted to have a feature that shines a light on people who I find fascinating. I pulled together 10 seemingly random questions that I will ask each guest.
For this inaugural edition, it’s only appropriate to spotlight my longtime friend and a woman that is just as weird as me…Serena Johnson.
Serena is the founder of Ladies Who Do Cool Shit. She is a career coach, a podcast host, and a champion of women and their stories.
Besides personal coaching, Serena hosts a bi-weekly career goals group in Los Angeles, and hosts the Ladies Who Do Cool Shit podcast (which I not-so-coincidentally designed the logo for and was a recent guest).
- Describe your perfect morning.
A solid hour of intense cuddling with my partner, a trip to the farmers market and then making a delicious brunch.
2. If you were a color or pattern, what would you be and why?
Hot pink because it is loud, aggressively feminine, and you either love it or you hate it. Basically me.
3. After a long day, what do you do to take the edge off?
An IPA and video games.
4. If you have company coming over, what’s your go to recipe to impress?
Ordering pizza. Just kidding. I actually don’t have a go to recipe. I always try to cook something new, which ends up giving me massive stress and anxiety, so I should probably get a go to recipe now that I think about it.
5. Recommend something to me.
Have you ever built with Legos? I just built a women from NASA kit and it was the most soothing, meditative thing ever. I felt so accomplished after. I thought I was going to be annoyed having Legos all over my house but now I see it on my shelf and I empowered by the fact that there is a lady astronaut AND that I built the model.
6. What’s the most niche niche you are interested in?
Oh man. Harry Potter? Astronomy? Lady world domination? I feel like these are all pretty basic of me, so maybe just basic girl stuff?
7. What is your favorite beverage?
A crisp IPA, because not only am I basic, but a hipster.
8. What is the last thing you laughed really hard at?
My bearded dragon Norbert trying to climb to the top of my partner’s head. Norbert was legit using his face and ears as a ladder. It was hilarious because Joel really couldn’t do anything about it. Mainly because I had to grab my camera and film it, so yeah.
9. If you had $1000 to donate to any charity, where would you donate?
Lady Parts Justice League because they provide advocacy and support to private abortion clinics that are under attack in our country. They do awesome work. Check them out.
10. Do you eat in the bath?
omg what? No. I drink wine in the bath like a normal person.
