Marya and Jack's answers to this week's Rorschach questions:

1. What is the nicest thing someone has done for you lately? 

Marya: My co-workers literally do something nice for me at least once a day. They are a great team to be a part of.

Jack: A stranger paid for my coffee order the other day!

2 What are you most excited about for Billings? 

Marya: I am with Kendra – the water treatment/recreation facility would be at the top of my list. I love to paddleboard and kayak.

Jack: I'm excited for what Billings will be WHEN we solve all of these workforce and housing issues. I think we're nearing a tipping point toward becoming something great.

3. What is the last thing you Googled? 

Marya: Prince Andrew – because I am currently watching the Netflix series “The Crown.”

Jack: The last thing I Googled was a recipe for broccoli cheddar soup.
