Paula Ayers grades midterm tests for fall 2018.
Q: Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
A: Sumatra, Indonesia
Q: If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
A: Clean my house. I am never home.
Q: What do you consider to be your best find?
A: My walk with Jesus. He helps me when I am down, slow, frustrated, happy, sad and even just when I am quiet I know He is there. It took me a while to let go and lean on someone stronger. I am not easily swayed. But, He won out and it was worth the journey.
Q: What are you interested in that most people haven’t heard of?
A: I love animals. All kinds. Love horses the most but they take a lot of time. I had to give them up. My dogs are good stand-ins. They require a lot of attention.
Q: What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from home?
A: Medan, Indonesia
Q: Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting?
A: I have been whitewater rafting in Colorado and Georgia. Hang gliding sounds fun. Heights do not bother me.
Q: What quirks do you have?
A: People who ask me to design a poster and mark out the dates with a magic marker. [I] can’t stand to see signs handwritten on a door that is a professional setting. [It] sends me into orbit. [Designing] a simple sign does not require a lot of tools. Just saying!
Q: What kind of art do you enjoy the most?
A: I am a big Monet fan. Love Impressionistic art almost focused but not. I have several art styles I like. Once you are in the business, you look at all mediums as some sort of art.
Q: What movie title best describes your life?
A: Gone with the Wind – here today and gone tomorrow. Life takes so many turns. It all happens way to fast even on the slow days.
