Stealing Vogue’s ’73 Questions with’

I don’t know about you, but I love watching those clips on youtube that Vogue does called ’73 questions with (insert celebrity name here)’. Even if I don’t like the celebrity, I tend to watch all of the videos anyway. You never know when you’re going to need those silly facts for Jeopardy’s tournament of champions!

Anyways, here’s my version:

  1. What was the name of the first person you ever had a crush on? Why did you like them? His name was Steven. He had a neon green velour sweatsuit that he wore to school every day and I loved him and his willingness to stand out in such a way when we were in second grade and being different usually got you bullied.
  2. What is one thing you regret having done or not done in your life? I don’t really have a ton of regrets. I guess that’s because I still have so many plans. Does it count as a regret if you still intend to do it?
  3. Which parent do you identify with the most? Neither. I try to tell people that I’m adopted because my personality seems to be the polar opposite of the parental units I came from and was raised by.
  4. What do you think you cook or bake the best? Brownies.
  5. If you could change your first name what would it be? I’m not too sure. Perhaps something more common.

  15. What are your favorite style of underwear? Bikini
  16. What’s the saddest song you’ve ever heard? Oh, there are a few. I would say Augustana – Boston is high up there. Maybe Chris Stapleton – Broken Halos as well.
  17. How about the sweetest song? Christina Perri – A Thousand Years, Taylor Swift – Love Story, Ed Sheeran – Perfect… goodness there are so many.

  42. Have you ever found a writer who thinks just like you? if so, who? So many! I think that’s one of the best things about literature. Finding someone you don’t know, who possibly lived decades before you were even born, who put words on a page in an eloquent manner that resonate with the feelings in your heart, it’s a magical feeling.

  65. If you were presented with two buttons, one that allows you to go 5 years into the past, the other 5 years into the future, which one would you press? I would absolutely select the future.
