31 questions | march 17.

March 17
What are you an expert on? Is it because of training, lived experience, or both?

Failure. Because of lived experience.

Excel. Because of training and experience.

p.s. — This has absolutely nothing to do with this post… but whatever. Today I was listening to an album that inspired a story I wrote in 2002. Now I think I might edit and rework the whole thing. Maybe it will get me writing again. That would be fucking great! I’m not going to get my hopes up, though. I’ve had at least some level of writer’s block since late 2017. God, over three years. I don’t even know what possessed me to listen to this album today. It just sort of happened. [Do people still say ‘album’? Well, I do. Fuck, it was 2002. I may be listening digitally now, but I have the CD.]

[Thanks to my lovely friend Marquessa for this 31 questions challenge.]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I still say album, yes. Doesn’t mean my kids know what the fuck I’m talking about when I say it though. 😃

  3. Experience is everything
    That leads you to your fate
    Failures are the turning points
    By which you navigate
    You’ll never make an omelette
    Without a broken egg or two
    You’ll never see the picture
    Without changing point of view
    You’ll never top the class
    If you can’t feel like the dunce
    And you’ll never win at anything
    Before losing more than once

    • All true. I hope to someday figure out how to look at things differently than I do now. Everything you wrote makes sense… and I believe it. Yet I still can’t find my way out of the hole I’m in.
