You’re a sharp-witted, natural-born wordsmith.

Home decor? It’s more like a love affair.

You have a thing for grammar. That person who takes pics of errors on signs? Guilty….

Polished. Buttoned-up. Super self-motivated. You could go on.

You take direction like a pro – but you’re also not afraid to just run with it solo.
