Random Facts

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

I dreaded getting this question because how does one decide?!?! If push came to shove, I’d have to say Reese’s Puffs.

If you had to listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

“The World Was Wide Enough” from the Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton. (Really all the songs on this soundtrack, but you’re making me choose again).

If you could be cast in a movie of your choice, what movie would you choose, and which character would you want to play?

Michael Scarn in Threat Level Midnight.

What is your most used emoji?

This answer is so cliché, but the cry laughing face. Sometimes the salsa dancing lady takes the #1 spot for a day, but typically it always goes back to the original cry laughing face.

What movie or TV show do you absolutely refuse to watch and why?

South Park. I don’t really know what it is to about this show to be honest, because I don’t mind other animated series like Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy, but South Park just never made me laugh or even made much sense to me.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not working? 

Besides the (long) list of hobbies above, I, surprisingly, really enjoy gaming when I have the time. Whether it’s Animal Crossing New Horizons on my Nintendo Switch, or Sims 4, or even Planet Zoo, on my computer, there has always been something about gaming that helps ease my anxiety. Plus, it’s fun!

What animal do you think most closely matches your personality?

Normally, I’d say a dog, but I recently saw a video of a gorilla twirling so much in a field that it ended up falling over and proceeding to roll around in the grass, and I think that gorilla 100% matches my personality. Don’t ask me why.

Toilet Paper: over or under?

Over. Non-negotiable.
