What’s one (non-work related) accomplishment you’re really proud of?
I kept an orchid alive for more than a year. Someone gave me the orchid as a gift during the pandemic. It was full of delicate white blooms when I received it. Then 3 months later, all of the blooms fell off.  I tended to it and repotted it and 9 months later it bloomed again, with multiple delicate white blooms.
