Dream husband: Thoughtful, committed, ambitious, sexy, and challenges me to be the best person I can be.

One thing you want to do before graduating: Go to Hewitt late night with friends from freshman year.

If you could have a super power what would it be and why: Teleportation would make life a lot more efficient. 

If you could invite anyone to dinner, you would ask: This is hard – probably someone from the future.
