My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. The only things you will regret are the things you didn't do'

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My laugh. Completely charming or heartstabbingly annoying, depending on your overall perspective.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Teddy Roosevelt.  "Kiss me, you fool."

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. What a cruel question. These are in no particular order: Hey, by The Pixes, The Money Song from Cabaret (the Alan Cumming version), Vicious by Lou Reed, Stand and Deliver by Adam Ant, and Blister in the Sun by The Violent Femmes. Each one of those songs makes me feel like the strongest version of myself that there is. They were all on the playlist for AND THEN THINGS FALL APART.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I sometimes forget to listen to my wise, loving, fearless inner voices and only listen to the mean, undermining, and insecure ones.
