As a challenge I am learning to use my mouse left handed.
On days when I want a real challenge, I take a different route to work.
I am currently a senior technical writer. In another five to ten years I
hope to be a senior master technical writer.
To challenge myself further, I am currently memorizing acronyms and buzz
