Q + A
My first wish would be to speak every language. I’ve always been interested in languages and have something of a hobby of teaching myself new ones, but I haven’t yet had the patience to reach fluency. Next would be the ability to travel through time since I’m a huge history nerd. Lastly, I would want to spend just one day as a puppy because those little guys have it made.
My ideal weekend would involve sleeping in, seeing the pandas at the National Zoo, enjoying a lengthy brunch, and going to a hockey game.
My mom’s homemade angel food cake. She makes it for my birthday every year, even when I’m not there. She sends it in the mail with a ten-dollar bill to buy whipped cream and strawberries.
This is tough because I tend to spend seasons of obsession with bands/artists and then move on, but if I had to pick an enduring one, it would be Elvis Costello. I was named after one of his songs, and I met him once, and his music is all-around fantastic—witty, catchy, and unique.
