What's your idea of a perfect day?


What did you think about on Sept. 11?

I was worried on several levels. My dad is an airline pilot and often flew in the area. Also he is a military pilot so I wanted to know where he was and then I was worried that he would have to leave. So the whole thing kind of hit me on two levels. I felt bad for the families of any military people who were called to duty and I also felt bad for the families of pilots in the airlines.

Who's invited to your fantasy dinner party, and why? Jesus, he can turn water into wine. How cool is that. And because there are so many questions that I want to ask him, before I die.

What do you think about Portales?

It is quaint. I actually am a little fond of it. I like that people wave at you when you drive down the street.

What do you like about ENMU?

How friendly everyone is. How willing people are to help.

If money were no object, what would you do to make the world a better place?

Everything. Cure everything. All societal evils. Produce enough food for everyone so on and so forth.

Who is your hero and why?

Everyone...everyone is unique and wonderfully talented in thier own ways so rather than having one hero I have lots. That way all my heros collectively have all the talents in the world needed to make up one great hero.

Tell us about your greatest individual accomplishment: Everyday you do something good is the greatest accomplisment. Even if it is as little as telling someone that they look nice.

If I could do anything, I would ...give everyone in the world a box of crayons and coloring books. Do you know how wonderfully stress releaving coloring is? No matter how old you are. I'd also bring and end to world hunger and all that good stuff!

What is your greatest fear?

To not be loved.

What is your greatest hope?

To be a good person. To be remembered as someone that helped others and was happy.

What is your favorite smell?

The smell of rain. I love rain. It is so refreshing.

Tell us about a time you were afraid?

I hate clowns. So basically anytime there are clowns around Im afraid. Sorry to any clowns out there.

Tell us about your first date?

When I was like 4-years-old I went to preschool with this kid named Kareem and he asked me to swim in the play pool with him during recess. It was kind of like a date, does that count?

Actually I dont really remeber my first date.

What is your most prized possession?

That’s easy. My friends (family included). They really aren't a possesion but they are the thing I prize most.
