What is your favorite time of year and why? My favorite time of year is definitely summer. I love being outside in the sunshine. I’d much rather be too hot than too cold!
What food would be impossible for you to give up? I will never give up pizza. I truly can’t imagine life without it.
If you could teleport, where would you go? Australia. It seems like the perfect combination of beautiful cities and amazing, untouched nature!
What’s your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon? My ideal Sunday afternoon consists of sleeping in, going out for a late breakfast (diner food, nothing fancy) and then lounging around with my friends watching sports.
What jam gets you pumped up? Definitely classic rock. Throw on some ACDC or Guns n Roses and I’ll be ready to rock n roll! (pun intended)
