“I am a perfectionist, which means I’m also a procrastinator because if I can’t do something perfect the first time right away, I don’t do it at all.” - Amy Roy [0:30:24]
“I think another good thing to do when you do come up with something you're just stuck at is at your desk or wherever have a notepad or piece of paper and just write it down. Getting that out of your brain onto paper.’ - Amy Roy [0:33:23]
