    What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it? Right now, the thing that I’m most scared to do that I also want to do is take a leave from work and focus on building up SANA Stationery & Gifts. I want to make a real…

    What do you complain about the most? I complain a lot. In fact, one of my goals for 2024 is to complain less, to look on the bright side of life. It’s not going well, but I’m not going to complain about it. Without a doubt, I complain most about people. Usually other people. I…

    What are your favorite sports to watch and play? I used to play volleyball. Correction. I was on the volleyball team in high school. For a time, I thought it was my favourite sport. In the end, it really wasn’t the sport for me. Car racing has always interested me, but I never explored that…

    What would you do if you won the lottery? I’d disappear. Well, it depends on much the jackpot was. Anything over $20-million and I’d be gone real quick. Between $10 and $20 million, I’m definitely quitting my job. $1-$10 million and I’d probably stay put for the time being. From whatever I won, I’d pay…

    What books do you want to read? What I would really like to do is read all of the unread books on my bookshelf. There are many. Too many. I should be a better reader, especially considering that I’m the school librarian. The other day, I went to the bookstore to pick out a new…

    Write about a few of your favorite family traditions. One tradition that I adore is how we all end our text messages with, “Loves.” Every time we send a text message to each other, no matter how long or short, or whether it’s a text thread or quick one-liner, we end the message the same…

    What do you enjoy doing most in your leisure time? I prefer to do as little as possible when I’m taking it easy. I find that I’m either on or off. There’s no dimmer switch. Most of the time, I can’t sit still. I tend to do the same things repeatedly. It would be good…

    Name an attraction or town close to home that you still haven’t got around to visiting. I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never been to New York City. For most of my adult life, I’ve lived close enough to take a train or short-haul flight. Once, I took a road trip to upstate New York,…

    If you could make your pet understand one thing, what would it be? I would love for our cats to understand how we display love and affection. We, of course, being people. The hugging, kissing, petting, and snuggling. It’s all love. In their own way, our cats tell us they appreciate us. They are most…

    Write about your first name: its meaning, significance, etymology, etc. My first name is Aly. It means “the exalted one.” It’s a good name. Most often, you’ll see it spelt with an “i” but I spell my name with a “y.” The name comes from Hazrat Ali, the cousin of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). In the…

    What’s your dream job? Today? Today it’s woodworking. I would love to wake up every morning, pack a lunch for myself, and head over to my workshop. I’d love the freedom to be creative and to try things in a space that is full of all the tools I need. It’d be wonderful to answer…
