The construction that wakes me up every single morning (thanks, UVA).

If you had to pick one song to play non-stop in the background of your life, what would it be?
I’ve given a lot of thought to this throughout my life, and I must instead give you a playlist: Little Bitty Pretty One (the Matilda song), Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Int’l Players Anthem, and the soundtracks for Sister Act 1 and 2. Is that not the feel-good playlist of the century?!

What’s the longest. you’ve gone without sleep and why?
Probably 48 hours. Something finals and cramming related, I’m sure.

If you won the lottery, what would you do with it?
Pay off my student loans. And with the remaining $10, buy a bunch of real estate and give the rest to charity.

If you had Matrix-like learning, what would you learn?
Every single language in the world. How badass would that be?!

If you could be in the winter Olympics, which sport would you compete in?
I sobbed inconsolably after the U.S. men’s team won America’s FIRST Olympic gold medal in curling, if that answers your question.
