If you could live in any TV show, which one would you pick?

Say Yes to the Dress so I can have any wedding dress I wanted. Or New Girl because I would love to be a girl living with three boys in a loft.

You can only grab two snacks on your way to the library, what are they?

Pretzels and a jar of peanut butter.

You have one day to do whatever you want in Lawrence, what would you do?

I would brunch at RND Corner Grille. I would have a float day. This is where I go out to Clinton Lake with friends and float around on my doughnut tube. I would come back to town and have dinner at Ingredient at an outdoor table, weather permitting of course. Then, in a perfect world, KU would have an away basketball that I could watch on my couch in the comfort of my apartment.


Favorite Friday night hangout?

Playing Mario Kart before having a night out on the town.

Favorite Wednesday night hangout?

The Library (Club Anshutz because there’s no cover).

Name one thing in your closet that defines you as a person.

My collection of J Crew monogrammed vests.

What is the most embarrassing thing you own?

For a while I had to put on prescription deodorant because I would sweat so much through my shirts. I put it on at night and it really hurt, like a burn. But now I don’t sweat anymore even on the warmest days. It’s amazing.

You’re on a first date at a restaurant, what do you order?

Chicken, seasonal vegetables, and seasoned wild rice. If I’m in Colorado, I will order water. If I’m in Kansas, I will get Iced Tea.

Pick one year of your life that has been the best one?

Age 17 because I was in a good spot with all my friends, I was with the boy I thought I was going to marry, and I was in a really good spot with my parents.

What is one thing that wish people knew about you?

No matter who you are, I will talk to you. That’s just my personality.

I am very high maintenance, but I try not to make it other people’s problem.
