People Are Interesting: Maris Callahan

Happy Tuesday to you. Are you having an interesting day? A silly day? A joyful day? Thanks for taking time to stop over!

A big thanks to Maris Callahan for being the first interviewee for the new, weekly "People Are Interesting" column! She's got a terrific blog that you've got to check out: In Good Taste. It's filled with yummy recipes. Here are some delightful reflections from Ms. Callahan:

Maris Callahan/26/Chicago, IL/Public Relations

1. Where do you feel most comfortable?
Anywhere if I can wear sweatpants.

2. Describe your average day in one word.
Internet! I blog and I work in social media so I spend a lot of hours online.

3. Who are the people who most inspire you?
People who work hard to achieve their goals; anyone who is willing to put others before themselves.

4. What do you love about your work?
That I can talk to and interact with all different types of people. No two days are the same.

5. What is your most beloved hobby?
Cooking/baking. A good day is when I can spend six uninterrupted hours in the kitchen.

6. What are you reading?
I just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

7. What is the best advice you've ever received?
One of the best pieces of advice I've gotten is to never compare yourself to anyone else.

8. What movie or television show do you think everyone should be required to watch?
Everyone should watch Elf at Christmastime.

Thanks Maris!
