Caitlyn Boza, the outgoing editor of Life on the Hill, faces the questions this week, her last in the area:
1. What do you feel is your greatest achievement?
Hopefully my greatest achievement is still ahead of me, but at this point in my life, I’d say graduating from the University of Notre Dame.
2. What, to you, is perfect happiness?
Knowing who I am and being OK with that.
3. What one material possession would you save in the event of a fire (assuming your family was safe)?
I keep a memory box in my closet that contains all the significant bits and pieces of my life. I’d go straight for that.
4. What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
My parents always used to tell me not to overthink things. They’re still right.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d be more confident.
6. What is your greatest fear?
Dentists. It used to be cockroaches, but then I moved to Georgia.
7. What is your greatest extravagance?
8. If money weren’t an object, how would you spend your time?
Doing whatever I want, whenever I want.
9. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
I don’t take myself too seriously.
10. What trait do you most admire in another person?
11. What trait do you most deplore in another person?
12. Who are your favorite musicians?
Depends on my mood, but Neil Young always tops the list.
13. What are your favorite books?
I love reading, so this question is both the easiest and hardest. “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon, “Sarum” by Edward Rutherford, “The Shadowy Horses” by Susanna Kearsley,” “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostova. I could do this all day.
14. What talent would you most like to have?
Neatness. I’m a total clutterbug.
