Short and sweet, I’ve decided to make Ask Me Anything a monthly segment called W.W.N.D.? (What Would Nikks Do?). I will answer your questions the last Friday of every month. If it’s successful, I’ll try to do it twice a month. Remember, you can ask about me, for advice/opinions about decisions you need to make or past decisions. I’ll try be as helpful as humanly possible. Please submit your questions by midnight Wednesday, May 25th.

I look forward to hearing from you all.
