    • For one of my birthdays when I was young enough to (it was still the early 90's) give out goody bags, I made a mixed TAPE for my guests. One of the songs on the mixed tape was definitely Ace of Base.

  • Where would I like to explore (anywhere in the world and beyond!)? I would really like to go to Africa. Ride an elephant. I've been to Europe a ton, and I would always love the culture, the arts, the everything there, but someplace I don't know my work could take me to? Africa, all the way.
  • With an afternoon all to myself, what would I do with it? Depends where I am in the point of my life. If I'm working on a show, or a project, I'd probably get ahead doing that. But if not, I would practice guitar, or maybe go on a walk?
  • What is my favorite spot in this town/city/state? Oh man, definitely the Georgetown swings. Right next to my apartment, total serenity, a place for me to go and not be bothered.

My rule for this survey is to go with my first instincts, no matter what. We'll see how interesting this list becomes.

  • Your favorite song - Such a tough one. I'm going to have to go with "Any Day Now" by Missy Higgins, because of the history, and I could listen to it basically anytime of my life and be pleased to hear it.
  • Your least favorite song - also tough. I like to give all music a chance, but I never really got into "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. I never hated it, but I didn't love listening to it ever.
  • A song that makes you happy - "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus. It reminds me of Natasha and I, sometimes drunk, sometimes sober, dancing in our underwear, forgetting about boys, Conservatory, sophomore year, and anything else that might have been bothering us. I miss her a lot.
  • A song that makes you sad - "The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore" by James Morrison. Such a sad breakup song, that...

  • dancing captaining this show (really, just telling people over and over again to make sure their arms are straight) reminds me of cleaning Millie. only Mike is now Matt, and Matt is actually nice to me. Carl is still in it, which is crazy to think about.
  • a few weeks ago, when Kyle and I went on a walk after "Conservatory Prom," it was so warm out and so humid that it felt like Palm Springs when I was a kid and went on the green for a sleepover with my siblings.
  • There is so much similarity in Carnegie Mellon's pre college program with actual college.
  • The lightening bugs in the park at the Festival remind me of catching lightening bugs with my grammy and grumps, with my sibs, back when it was only us three.
