WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

Something that involves a lot of puzzles, where every task is a thought problem I can geek out over. Oh, and it should involve marine life (if at all possible), a high-paying salary, and a sense of abiding fulfillment. Can I get fries with that?

WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL WEEKEND?

I wake up early Saturday morning to go on a road trip with good friends (or strangers, that’d be pretty awesome as well). I come back that night after a long day of adventure, exhausted but satisfied. I spend the next day in my room, kicking back with Papa John’s pizza and a Pepsi Max, as I do my homework and watch movies. Friends visit, giving the occasional distraction/movie-watching company.

STAR TREK OR STAR WARS?

Star Wars

WHAT IS THE NERDIEST THING YOU DO?

I once wrote a rap track about Guy Fieri. My mix tape drops 2035. Be prepared.

FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?

Mint chocolate chip. Sometimes I flirt with other flavors, but at the end of the day that emerald concoction is the true BAE.

WHAT’S THE BEST KEPT SECRET ON CAMPUS?

Can’t tell you. It wouldn’t be best-kept anymore!
