Position in Now. Here. This.: Man 2
1) What is your spirit animal and why?
A bear. Because they are majestic beautiful creatures capable of incredible athletic ability, as well as extreme laziness. Also we share the trait of deceptively small ears.
2) What is your favorite section of a museum and why?
Any part involving space. I love space. How Many People Are In Space Right Now? #Space #SpaceThings #SpaceMuseum #Space
3) What does the phrase "more life" mean to you?
"More life" is a desire for something beyond the mundane. Beyond the easy choice. Beyond the safe choice. It is a desire to lead a life that is completely unique and beautiful. It's about facing your life head on in both wonderful and horrible moments. Also it's about more gummy dinosaurs.
4) What is your most embarrassing middle school memory?
I tried out for the Basketball team when I was in 7th grade. I did this because I was brand new to the school and wanted to fit in. I have NEVER played basketball to this point. Needless to say it was horrible and one of the kids told me after shooting drills, "You need to work on your form." I never went back. SILVER LINING: That kid turned out to be one of my best friends.
5) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Birch Bay State Park in Washington State. It's a place where my extended family gathers every year to go camping. I've missed it for the last several years and I would love to be able to go. It's essentially my happy place.
