  1. What three words best describe you?
    • Funny, sassy, competitive
  2. What tops your list of pet peeves? 
    • When people don’t wash their hands after they leave the restroom. It’s just gross and selfish.
  3. If you could be any animal, what would it be and why? 
    • Somebody’s cute French Bulldog because who doesn’t love a little Frenchie?!
  4. What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?
    • In high school I spray painted (with furniture paint) all the wooden furniture in my room white. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but it turned out really nice, and I added gold hardware to all the nobs and my room just looked so much bigger and brighter.
  5. Who is your all-time favorite sports star?
    • I honestly do not really watch sports like that so I feel like my answer would be fake.

    • Any piece of jewelry my mom gives me. Especially the rings I wear every day that used to be hers when she was my age.
  7.  What three items can always be found in your refrigerator?
    • A water filter…That’s it. I’m a “broke boy” who can’t drive. What is in my fridge depends on if I can get a ride to the grocery or if I have money to splurge at Kwik Trip or CVS lol. My pantry on the other hand will always have pasta, ramen, and for some reason, diced tomatoes.
