What's one thing you can't go a day without?

Chapstick.

Describe your life in 5 words.

Just rolling with the punches.

Describe the state of your desk on any given day?

I’m normally very tidy. If my desk (or my apartment) is a mess, that is 100% a reflection of my mental state.

What are your hobbies?

Reading, cooking, pretending I’m a bartender, waking my sweet pup up from her nap anytime I leave the room because she has to know what I’m doing at all times.

Finish the sentence: When in doubt...

do it. You might regret it later, but that’s life.

What is the most courageous thing you've ever done?

Left home for college and never looked back. You really don’t realize how naive you are and how much you *don’t* know about life until you’re navigating it all on your own at 18. My parents have always pretty much let me make my own decisions and I must say, I’ve carved out a pretty darn good life thus far.
