"Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged?
You are iron.
And you are strong."

- What’s a food you could have on your plate for a week straight and not tire of?
I am a very boring eater, so this actually happens a lot. Right now it’s granola every morning, but I’ve done this with oatmeal, peanut butter and apples, etc.
- Cooking or baking?
BOTH. Though, honestly, baking. I loves me some baked goods.
- Who was your first crush?
Honestly, my best friend growing up. But I didn’t understand I was allowed to like girls, so I didn’t realize this until much later. My first crush I actually knew I was having was to a boy in my class when I was 8 or 9.
- Do you know how your parents first met?
Oh god, so, my mom moved up to Alaska in the late 70’s, trying to escape southern California. She goes to bar for a friend of a friend’s birthday party (under age) and randomly this strange mountain-man-looking guy sits down next to her and says “Hi. I’m Jim. I’m a hermit. I don’t like people much.” And so, my parents met.
- Favorite song of 2013?
Frank Turner - A Decent Cup of Tea (it was honestly the most played song on my itunes that I’d added this year <3)
- If you could be reincarnated as a famous person, who would it be?
I’m… not sure I’d want to be? Famous peoples’ lives seem very stressful and I don’t know if I want to deal with it. That’s what I get for answering these while I’m practically a hermit.
- Shower or bath?
Shooooower. But I enjoy a bath from time to time, although most bathtubs aren’t big enough or long enough to be comfy.
- Favorite memory of your childhood?
The last family vacation we took with everyone there. It was 2 1/2 weeks with my parents and both my brothers in an ancient van driving halfway across the country. So many awesome memories and stories from that trip.
- Do you prefer swimming in a pool or in the ocean?
Can I vote neither and say lake/river? None of the salt, and also none of the chlorine.
- Would you like to act (or present news) in front of the camera or be behind the scenes?
If I honestly could, I would love to act. Or perform in any way. But I’m not strong enough a singer to make my way doing that, I can get crazy anxiety when it comes to leaving the house and dealing with people, and I also know that my looks… really wouldn’t fly. You don’t really see anything but ‘skinny’ or ‘fat’ on camera, so when you fall right in the middle… Don’t want to get into a diatribe about body politics in film, so just gonna say, I wish I could.
- What’s the longest time you’ve stayed awake without sleep and why?
Popping out bbCho. I was awake (except for micronaps I don’t remember taking) for about 3 days straight. Thursday morning around 7 until about 2am Sunday.
