User manual for being sheltered in place with Ronell Smith

  1. 1. A user manual for being sheltered in place with Ronell
  2. 2. This is goofy me and my lovely bride, Rachel
  3. 3. What are some honest, unfiltered things about me? I'm an extroverted introvert. I enjoy people, but I CRAVE time alone and loathe being interrupted. If my door is closed, DON’T KNOCK. If there is an emergency, call 911 and then knock when the first responders arrive.
  4. 4. What are some honest, unfiltered things about me? Did I mention that I crave alone time? I also don’t like hearing people talk on the phone, music played indoors or loud, repetitive noises. I’m not cranky; I’m picky. (That is, easily annoyed.) Caption: Reading at the Malmo City Library in Malmo, Sweden
  5. 5. What are some honest, unfiltered things about me? I’m a different person when I don’t start my day with my devotion and conclude with a prayer before interaction with any other human. Also, if I don’t get into the gym early, my day NEVER goes as well as it should. Therefore, my brain works best AFTER I’ve lifted heavy things.
  6. 6. What are some honest, unfiltered things about me? If I’m quiet, I’m thinking—not upset. If I’m alone, I’m not lonely; I’m likely thinking. Keep in mind that WORK for me does not mean BUSYNESS. Most of what I do/create/share, requires DEEP WORK time/thinking.
  7. 7. What's the best way to communicate with me? 1.  Text 2.  Email 3.  Messaging app 4. In-person conversation 5. Chat app (i.e., Slack) 6.  Phone conversation (if all else fails). Capiche?
  8. 8. What are some other honest, unfiltered things about me? I love seeing & spending time with and talking to my family. PLEASE feel free to joke, tease or laugh AT ANYTHING I do. Humor is medicine to me. Remember, it’s ALWAYS snuggle time. And, most important, I need AT LEAST 500 kisses per day. (AT LEAST)
  9. 9. Thanks! (for your compliance)
