What’s your major?
English Writing Arts
Where are you from?
Bronx, New York
Do you hold grudges?
I probably don’t hold grudges. But then again, I’ll never forgive Gregory from second grade for being a little snitch. And I’m still mad at my cousin for putting sugar in my corn flakes when I was five years old.
What’s your favorite most recent memory?
Last summer, I went with my sister to go pick up her diploma from my old high school and the guidance counselor asked me if I had a job yet and when I told her I did not, she said, “I can’t believe as soon as you graduated high school, you thought you could get lazy and not do anything,” to which I responded, “I’m not working this summer because I got cancer.” The look on her face when I said that is what keeps me warm at night.
Best compliment you’ve ever received?
“You look like a gothic dinosaur.”
What’s your favorite hobby?
It’s either procrastinating writing or buying books that I know I don’t have the time to read.
What’s one of your pet peeves?
When I was in high school, my English teacher took ten points off an otherwise fine essay because I forgot to use two commas and now whenever I read something that needs commas, I die a little inside.
Favorite childhood memory?
If I had to pick one, it’d probably be the time that my friend brought her mom’s stethoscope to school to find out if I had a heart.
Favorite time of day?
Three in the morning. It’s the best time to procrastinate doing homework and writing.
Not to have to be a starving artist. As long as I’m not working at Hot Topic in ten years, I’ll be good.
