EVERYTHING! Long lectures aren’t so bad with AWAKE on hand. I’m also convinced my body is too old for my mind, so I get tired at 8pm, but I have an affinity for late night concerts.

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

Bohemian Rhapsody, key-changes and all. I live for that song. Honestly, I’ve never done karaoke, but every drive in my car is a carpool karaoke sesh, so that’s basically the same since all of my friends have heard me sing it multiple times. Or anything Beyoncé - she’s a queen.

Favorite food (other than chocolate of course)?

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I’m not sure if this counts but I absolutely love hot sauce.  I put it on pretty much everything, averaging about two bottles per week.  I have no brand loyalty I just keep trying new sauces.
