3) What does the phrase "more life" mean to you?
It's a battle cry to live fully! It means More Adventure! More Vulnerability! More Creativity! More Self Expression! More Present-ness! More Connection! More Friendship! More Love! MORE LIFE!
4) What is your most embarrassing middle school memory?
7th grade: On the first morning of my first day at a new school, I was trying to find my first class. I was walking down an empty hallway when the bell rang. Someone threw a door open, which hit me in the head and knocked me to the ground. I was laying on my back seeing stars as students flooded into the hallway, stepping over me. Because they didn't recognize me, no one helped me up. Finally, I had to bootstrap myself up and get to my class. The whole experience sucked massive butt. But as Friedrich Nietzsche once told Kelly Clarkson, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
5) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Just this morning, I was saying that I wanted to go to Ireland. Why? Because More Life!
