UW Tacoma Senior Lecturer Julie Masura discusses her love of puzzles. Masura has a garage full of puzzles that she's completed and attached to the walls.
So this is Julian, ms Sarah, and this is my little secret that I can't have in my home. So in 2015 my sister in law bought me a puzzle and it was made of beer labels and I put it together straight for five hours. I put this thing together, beer labels, and it was all this work and my neck was sore, my hands were sore, my feet were sore, and I'm like, I'm going in this thing together. So I got some puzzle glue and I glued it all together. And so that was my first puzzle. So, you know, since I was a kid and ever since then I probably put a not, I put puzzles together all the time and I'm always, I can't stop. So I have this total addiction to puzzles. I love them. Um, I prefer ones that have different colors, but sometimes I like to do like Harry Potter ones that are all black.
So it's just really trying to figure out the geometry or these puzzle pieces. And I glue them all together and once I'm done with them, I staple them to my garage. My garage walls. So all of my walls in my garage are covered with puzzles. Russell Wilson puzzles, Washington state university, puzzles, puzzles of puppies and kittens, tons of puzzles. You name it. I've got it. And I'm actually the easiest person to buy a gift for. If you buy me a puzzle, that's all I need. And it could be 50 pieces. I usually like to max out about a thousand. Um, but I love to do puzzles and I love it when people do puzzles with me. I have kits, I have sorting things, I have little, um, mat or pads that I actually roll them up and take them on vacation. It's silly, but that's kinda my Julie's little secret as I'm a puzzle nut.
