Q1. How many times have you been pulled over? And why?
A1. Once. I ran passed a “Do Not Enter” sign at school so campus security pulled me over and started scolding me. I almost cried.
Q2. What animal is your spirit guide?
A2. People say I act like a bunny…so I guess, a bunny? I’d much rather prefer a ferocious mountain lion or an ass-kicking wallaby.
Q3. What’s your vice?
A3. I love burnt food, especially burnt honey-roasted ham. The blacker, the better…mmm…carcinogenic food.
Q4. If you could live in a movie for a day, which movie would it be? Would you be yourself or another character?
A4. John Nash from A Beautiful Mind — So I can see how it feels to be so smart yet so insane and what courage it took to overcome it.
Q5. If your art was an ice cream flavor which one would it be?
A5. The non-diary kind because I’m somewhat lactose intolerant. Melancholic Mango Sorbet.
Q6. Did you have an imaginary friend as a child?
A6. Unfortunately no, my real friends wouldn’t leave me alone.
Q7. Personal Quote?
A7. “Well, it could be worse.”
Q8. Do you believe in horoscopes and zodiac signs?
A8. Not really, I’ll flip to the back of a magazine to read it but mainly for entertainment purposes.
Q9. Do you drink coffee? If so how many cups a day?
A9. I try to keep it at a maximum of one a day + 5 cups of green tea.
Q10. Best show you have ever been too?
A10. Technically, it’s not a show but I would have to say my dad’s Naturalization Oath Ceremony. Twenty years ago, we came to the U.S. without anything – money, clothes, or a home. Now, after all his sweat and tears, my brothers and I have everything we ever needed and more. To him, the naturalization certificate embodied the years of us having nothing to everything. Yes, my dad (and mom) is pretty kick-ass.
