This or That

Dog or Cat?
I like both, but I prefer hairless pets to fluffy ones.

Netflix or YouTube?
Netflix! I often have the mini-screen off to one side while I work.

Phone Call or Text?
Neither. Email or DM me, please!

Toast or Eggs?
Eggs, but only if you put a lot of cheese on them.

Cardio or Weights?
I prefer cardio, but I probably need to work on my noodle arms…

Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter! I love the writing community and encouragement that can be found there.

Ice Cream Cone or Snow Cone?
I would rather have a homemade smoothie with fresh fruit. My favorite is pineapple and strawberries!

Mobile Games or Console Games?
I love to play Mario Kart on my new Nintendo Switch, or Pokemon on 3DS.

While walking: Music or Podcasts?
Walking is unplugged time, so I prefer to have a conversation, hash out plot points with my writing partner (aka, Mom) or just enjoy the quiet.

iOS or Android?
I don’t have a phone, but my guess is that I would prefer Android…

Cake or Pie?
I can’t eat sugar, but I enjoy baked apples from time to time.

Swimming or Sunbathing?
I like to sit in the sun, but only for short periods. I burn very easily.

Big Party or Small Gathering?
With a big family, small gatherings already ARE a big party!

New Clothes or New Phone?
Clothes! I am a boot fiend.

Rich Friend or Loyal Friend?
Loyal, for sure! If you can’t trust your friend, what’s the point?

Football or Basketball?
Not big into sports (unless it’s the Olympics), but I come from a football-watching family so I’ll go with that.

Nice Car or Nice Home Interior?
I like to be at home, so having a pretty interior is more important to me.

What’s worse: Laundry or Dishes?
Dishes, ew. Thankfully, I can put a show or music on while I work!

Jogging or Hiking?
Hiking, because you can set your own pace, bring snacks, and the view is always worth it.

Bath or Shower?
Both. Totally depends on my mood.

Sneakers or Sandals?
I like boots!

Glasses or Contacts?
I like to wear sunglasses. Functional, and fun to collect!

Hamburger or Taco?
Tacos! I’m there for the guacamole and fresh salsa…

Couch or Recliner?
I’m a couch potato! I’d love to have a fancy chaise lounge someday.

Online Shopping or Shopping in a Store?
I love the thrill of discovery and the chance to try things on at the store.

Receive: Email or Letter?
Snail mail is awesome, it really makes my day when someone takes the time to send something, even if it’s just a quick note.

Passenger or Driver?
Passenger for life! I refuse to drive.

Tablet or Computer?
Depends on what I’m doing. I use different tech for different tasks because it helps me compartmentalize.

Most important in a partner: Intelligent or Funny?
I like dry, ironic, well-timed humor… which requires both.

Car or Truck?
RV! I love roadtrips.

Blue or Red?
Blue! I love cool colors because they’re so soothing.

Money or Free Time?
Can’t I have both?

Amusement Park or Day at the Beach?
That would depend, I really enjoy both.

At a movie: Candy or Popcorn?
Neither, and I probably wouldn’t go to the theater. I like to watch movies at home.

Pen or Pencil?
For note taking or letter writing, a pen. For design work or complex lettering, a pencil. For freehand lettering, a brush pen.

Toilet paper: Over or Under?
Over.

Cups in the cupboard: Right Side Up or Up Side Down?
Drinking glasses are right side up, usually stacked to save space.

Pancake or Waffle?
Neither. I don’t eat gluten.

Coke or Pepsi?
I prefer a sugar-free seltzer or mineral water if I want something bubbly.

Coffee Cup or Thermos?
Generally I prefer to drink from a mug, but if we’re traveling I need something with a lid or it WILL spill.

Blinds or Curtain?
Light-blocking curtains. I need tomb-like conditions to sleep. I might be part-vampire.

Train or Plane?
I’ve never been on a train, so I’m going to postpone my answer on this one because I’d prefer to give an informed answer.

Phone or Tablet?
I love my Kindle. It’s great for reading and staying on top of my Instagram account.

Iced Coffee or Hot Coffee?
I usually prefer hot coffee, but the occasional cold brew is pretty great in the summer.

Meat or Vegetables?
I think balance is important, and finding things you actually enjoy eating is key to maintaining a healthy diet. Dishes that have both meat and veggies are my favorite.

International Vacation or a New TV?
I’d love to travel the world!

Save or Spend?
I’m a spender.

Honesty or Other’s Feelings?
I usually err on the side of keeping people happy unless I know them well enough.

Coffee or Tea?
I like both, but I land more on the coffee side of the beverage spectrum.

TV or Book?
I really enjoy both, but almost always within the kid’s section. Middle Grade (8-12) is my happy place and I rarely venture beyond.

Movie at Home or Movie at the Theater?
Movies at home. I like to watch things privately, and with the ability to adjust the volume.

Ocean or Mountains?
I actually live in a place where I get to see both regularly, so I can’t really pick. Both are amazing and awe inspiring.

Horror Movie or Comedy Movie?
I’d rather laugh.

City or Countryside?
Both are awesome, but the convenience of city living suits me best.

Winter or Summer?
Summer! I enjoy the warmth, the activities, the bright colors, and the in-season produce.

Mac or PC?
PC. I might be the only graphic designer in the world who can’t stand Apple products.

Console Gaming or PC Gaming?
My computer is for work. Consoles are for playing.

Soup or Sandwich?
SOUP! I love a good bowl of soup any time of the year.

Card Game or Board Game?
Tough one. I enjoy both, especially if they’re word-related like Scrabble, Bananagrams, or Quiddler.

Camping or Binge Watching Shows at Home?
I love a good binge watching day. Especially if you plan to have some nice snacks!

Working Alone or Working in a Team?
Hard to say for sure. I like to do my own thing at my own pace but I also enjoy having my progress count toward a bigger goal. I think this is why NaNoWriMo works so well for me.

Dine In or Delivery?
I prefer home-cooked food.

Sweater or Hoodie?
As a human who is always cold, I usually have to keep at least a light jacket with me at all times, even mid-summer. I prefer something that zips or buttons up to a pull-over because it’s easier to put on or take off.

Motorcycle or Bicycle?
I’d rather walk, honestly.

Book or eBook?
Both are great! Reading is reading, no matter the format. I use both, almost 50/50.

When sleeping: Fan or No Fan?
Yes to the fan. I need white noise.

TV Shows or Movies?
TV shows. There’s more room to develop characters, pull off surprising plot twists, and explore different possibilities in the longer format. That being said, I have a hard time getting into anything that goes beyond 2-3 seasons.

    Yay for PC! I know what you mean about Mac. I’ve tried and I just don’t get the work flow. Whenever I watch an online Photoshop tutorial, I get excited when I realize that, Hey! He’s on a PC… You’re right that most (almost all) graphic designers use Mac!

      It’s crazy how different they are, considering they’re created for the same purpose.

      I’ve always been in the “it’s a tool, so use what works for you” camp. I do get some funny reactions from people about it, though!
