“Hang out on Mass Street, go to KU games, I like sports games, walking around, being active, and going to the rec.”

What kind of music are you into?

Everything? Do you want to specify some favorite bands or just leave it at that?

“The Schoolboy Q Pandora station. There you go. It’s got all the good sh*t on there.”

What TV series are you addicted to?

Describe yourself in three words:

“Family, Friends, and God”

What is your idea of a perfect date?

“Man…Chipotle for breakfast lunch and dinner and uh…watching movies and relaxing. Kicking back, chillin like a villain.”

Are you looking for a girlfriend?

“No, because I hate relationships…that’s why it’s complicated, because I hate relationships. They’re stupid, I always get F***ed over.”

Would you rather go out to a big party on a Friday night, or stay in and have a movie night?

“I guess you could say I’d go out. As of lately, other than last week, I’ve been staying in because it’s been cold, but I like going out. It’s fun.”

 

What is your favorite restaurant in Lawrence?

“Oh, man that’s hard… I don’t know… I did like that one restaurant that burned down [it didn’t actually burn down, but there was a fire]. The one that had the dollar bills all over the walls. It’s a bar. It starts with a J, I think. Jefferson’s! Somebody told me that it caught fire.

What are you doing for spring break this year?

“I’m going to Colorado to visit my brother. He just recently moved there for a teaching job.”

Is this your ideal spring break? What would you do if money wasn’t a component?

“Oh, if money wasn’t a component, I’d get all of my friends together and we’d go to some Island. What’s a fancy island? Oh, the Cayman Islands!”

What goals to you have for the future?

“I plan to have a good job…so vague. I plan on being a great dude and helping out lots of people in my future.”
