  • Bridgid Conn: "A clone: It would be so helpful in terms of being as productive as everyone seems to think you should be, while also maintaining a life … what's that?"

  • Jor-El Caraballo: "Nice affirmations that you could post on mirrors, doors, etc., to help with those especially rough days/weeks."
