- I can spend the whole day indoors and be okay with it, I don't do it often since sometimes Avi needs space to run around, but if it were up to me, I'd stay here. - I love spending time just walking around a store, or a mall, it's kind of relaxing, I love looking at a lot of items and come up with decoration ideas. 
- Earlier this year I dreaded having to make food, but I am slowly growing fond of cooking. Finding new recipes online is definitely helping!
