Q: What’s something that really just disgusts you?

A: One time I tried to eat fried oysters, and I almost threw up.  The breading was so separated from the rest of it–the outside of it was just there, and then there was just, like, mush, and none of it was connected, it was so gross.  I got it on a cruise.


Q:What is your biggest pet peeve? 

A:  Probably now, it would be seeing people knowingly not wearing their masks right.  I saw someone say that that’s like the equivalent of showing your butt crack, and I thought, “That’s so true.”  Or smacking.  Smacking too.  Especially when people will do it, and then say “No, that’s not me.”  


Q:What’s your favorite place to eat?

A: I really like Big Orange–it’s so good.  I get a chicken sandwich, which alone is really good.  I also get the garlic fries. I love garlic fries, they’re so good.


Q: What’s a hidden talent that you have?

A: Is being lucky a hidden talent? Because I’m really good at guessing stuff and being lucky with that.  I don’t know.   I’m pretty good at  It gives you something that you have to draw, and the rest of the people have to guess what you’re drawing, and I’m actually like, OP [overpowered] at it.


Q: What’s your favorite game to play?

A: My favorite game is probably Valorant. I like to play with my friends on it, and it’s nice.  Most of the people I play with are in college, but then I still have a couple of people here that play it.


Q: What are some things you enjoy doing?

A: Besides playing video games, I really like listening to music and exploring new music.  Recently, it’s been a lot of R&B like ballad type stuff, and slower pop stuff.  Some artists I enjoy are Keshi, Phoebe Bridgers, Mitski, Frank Ocean, Radiohead, SZA, NIKI, and Clairo.


Q: What is your favorite song?

A: It changes all the time, but my favorite song is probably “I Bet On Losing Dogs” By Mitski.  It’s a sad song, but it’s so good, I love it.

Q: What can you find yourself doing in your free time?

A: In my free time, I’m either in my bed watching Tik Tok, or I’m playing video games with my friends, or I’m just laying in bed listening to music.


Q: What side of Tik Tok would you say you’re on?

A: I’m on some weird, random video side of Tik Tok. I’m on anime Tik Tok, Valorant Tik Tok, Twitch streamer Tik Tok, Minecraft Tik Tok.


Q: What anime do you enjoy watching? 

A: The new season of “Attack On Titan” came out recently, and it’s actually so good.  “Attack On Titan” for sure is up there.  “The Promised Neverland” is so good.  I love “Saiki K,” too.  There’s short animes that I like too, like “Erased,” I like that one too.

Q: What is something that you’re really passionate about?

A: I’m really passionate about politics.  I read a lot of political theory.  I like to indulge myself in that, and I think my beliefs are pretty well-rooted, too.

Q: What is something that inspires you to do your best?

A: Probably my friends,  especially my older friends.It’s like a following their example type thing. Anytime I do good on a physics test or something, I’ll go tell my friend Tiffany To about it, because she had physics, and I just look up to her a lot.


Q: What is your biggest strength?

A: I think one of my biggest strengths is that I take on a lot, and I’m able to take on a lot.  Even if I want to give up, it’s kind of hard for me to.  This past week has been so hard, but I’m still here, I’m still pushing through.


Q: How do you feel you’ve changed from the pandemic?

A:  I think that I’ve become a more well-rounded person in my beliefs. I think without having so much free time because of the pandemic I wouldn’t have been able to become so knowledgeable about my beliefs, especially in regards to politics.  But also, at the same time, I’ve had more time to do other things, like watch anime or develop more new things about myself.
