My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. What if?
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Having all the time in the world.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Billie Holiday... I don't know what I would have asked, I just would have liked to know her.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. My mom. She's made everything in my life possible, sacrificing left and right to make my dreams come true. And, after I went away for college, she went back to school and made her own dreams come true. Now she has an important job helping people. She's my hero.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. Sometimes I think I want to be the complete opposite of myself: a graceful surfer who lives on some sunny tropical island and doesn't burn in the sun and whose only aspiration is to get up early for a good wave and then chill on the sand doing not much of anything. That's the fantasy. I'd miss spending all day holed up in a dark corner writing though.
