What is your favorite animal? ELEPHANTS! 

What’s your favorite color? Turquoise

What’s your favorite book? The Great Gatsby

What’s your favorite movie? Anyone who knows me will know that my favorite movie of all time is Back To The Future….

What’s your favorite TV show? I think my favorite TV show of all time would have to be The O.C. But since I’m no longer in high school, my favorite current TV show is Mr. Robot. But I will have no shame in saying that I’m a huge sucker for the Real Housewives franchise….

What is your favorite song? This is tough! Let me first start by saying my favorite band is The White Stripes. A close second would be Mac DeMarco because I’ve been obsessed with him ever since I saw him at ACL. But after careful consideration, neither of those artists sing my favorite song. That top spot will most definitely have to go to The Cure’s Just Like Heaven because anytime that song comes on I immediately start dancing.

What is your favorite food? Migas breakfast tacos, chips and queso, chiliquiles, chocolate chip cookies, funfetti cupcakes #fat

What is your favorite outdoor activity? Last summer, my wonderful boyfriend Michael and I would go to Barton Springs one night a week for Night Swim. It was awesome and I plan to do it again this year. Besides that, I love a good BBQ family cookout or crawfish boil!

What is your favorite form of exercise? Running and yoga

What is your favorite time of year? Sweet, sweet summertime

At what age did you become an adult? I don’t think I truly felt like an adult until I started paying rent and bills on my own. This started at the age of 23, which is probably why that entire year I kept singing, “Nobody likes you when your twentyyyyy three” (Blink 182’s What’s My Age Again?).

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be? Summer Roberts from The OC because she gets to marry Seth Cohen and that’s all I ever wanted in life…

If you won the lottery, what would you spend it on? A European vacation to share with my boyfriend and best friends!

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet? BEYONCE, Jack White, John Lennon, Shia LaBeouf or Stevie Nicks.

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received? I’ve been told that I am a very good teacher/explainer, which truly means a lot to me since I sometimes feel like I talk in circles and ramble… as this questionnaire showcases.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? I’d go back to Barcelona or London in a heartbeat. Paella and fish & chips? Yes please.

Favorite sports teams? *If applicable The Houston Texans are my team, although they keep letting me down. And I’ll give our Longhorns a shout too. Texas, Texas Yeehaw!

What is the best gift you’ve ever received? I still remember the day my dad surprised me with tickets to see The Spice Girls. I was like 8 years old and the concert was on a school night. Needless to say, I felt extremely cool the next day. More recently, my mom surprised me with Taylor Swift tickets and yet again, I felt extremely cool the next day.

How would you describe your personal style? My style changes daily! Some days you’ll see me in bright colors and patterns and other days you’ll see me in all black. I love a good wedge but other times I just want to wear a pair of chucks. And while I don’t really showcase it at work, I LOVE wearing lipstick. And tons of rings.
