11. What is something you like to do that other people consider weird?
I track my progress/mileage to see how far around the world I've walked.

12. What decade would you have liked to have lived in and why?
The 80s! Big hair, great music!

13. What is the best pizza topping combination?
Pineapple and onions.

14. What is something you’ve always wanted to try but never had the courage to do?
Go back to some of the people who have really hurt me and tell them how their actions have affected me and other people.

15. When do you feel like you’re the most authentic you?
When I'm alone in the shower, meditation music on, and nobody is around to make noise, or bother me, and I can just be alone with just my thoughts and no interruptions.

16. What’s your favorite thing about your best friend?
I don't have a best friend. In January of this year, the person I thought was my best friend proved that she wasn't the person I thought she was.

Find me a hot spring, turn on some meditation music and I'm good to go.

18. What’s your funniest childhood memory?

Not sure on this one, either. I remember being lost in the mall when I was four or five. That one's stuck with me pretty good.

20. If Bill Gates wanted to donate $1,000,000 to your favorite charity, what would it be?
Operation Greyhound. I love my greyhound and anything I can do to help the charity that brought me and my baby together I'd love to help. Operation Greyhound is currently run out of the owners' home and they only have the capacity to take in something like 10 dogs at the facility at a time without sending out fosters. $1 million could change their program forever.

I am Serena. I now live most of the time at a lodge on the western side of Washington state. I was ready to retire this past July but decided to transfer and stick around for another couple years. I don't think I will last another couple years. The ranch just sold and will close shortly and that will be my opportunity to pay off my new truck and my barn and finally leave the workforce behind! We are opening a destination airbnb and I will be working full time with that and training my new Gypsy

I think one of the weirdest things I do is to I allow one of my students to tell me what to wear the next day when school is in session. He knows my wardrobe better than I do and although barely verbal he describes the color (and design) on the shirt, socks, pants, and shoes I am to wear and also which aroma necklace, color of the scent pads for the necklace and what scent I should use. He didn't talk when he started in my class. If this gets him talking, I let him do it. Btw did I mention I miss him and his classmates?

What decade would I like to live in? Hmmm I lived in the decades from the 1940s up to today and all had some pluses and minuses. If I could return to the decade of 2000-2010, I would be fine.

Best pizza topping combination, ham, bacon, and pineapple and VERY light sauce!

Something I have always wanted to do but lacked courage - sky diving

I feel the most authentic me when I am in water (pool, lake, river, ocean, whatever) and enjoying myself swimming, exercising and playing

My favorite thing about my best friend is that she is always ready to listen and support me.

If I wanted to get away I would choose somewhere with water (pool, lake, river ocean, whatever) where I could swim, exercise, and play in the water.

What is my funniest childhood memory? There are so many, but maybe it is the time my cousin who just passed away came out of the house after my father had scolded him for something and looked at my sisters and me. He said, "Did any of you hear what he said, I wasn't listening?" It struck us all as hilarious because it was so very much something now of us would have cared to do.

My earliest memory is of my father driving my sisters and me to my aunt's house. We had to stay there for a week or more because my mother had a miscarriage. I remember being scared and not understanding why we couldn't go home and why I had to eat strange foods and as much as I love my aunt, uncles cousins, it was scary and I hated it.

If Bill Gates made a donation of a million dollars I would choose my church and a program for teen mothers training them to be good mothers while providing job training, education, and counseling as well as a safe home for them and their children.
