Thank you :)
#10: Discuss your first love and kiss
My first love was Rudy Huxtable. I wanted to be Bud more than life and I thought we were destined to marry.
My first real kiss was in middle school and it was completely by accident. It was Valentine’s Day and someone gave me one of those cheap carnations. A girl in my class was having a really bad day AND didn’t get a carnation from anyone, so I gave her mine. Great decision. I don’t remember her name, but I’ve actually seen her in NY a few times randomly on the street, so I guess she lives here now. We haven’t spoken since middle school, so I’m not compelled to be all like, “Hey! I know you! What cho name iz?”
#14: My earliest memory…
Oddly enough it’s with my dad. there are two, but I don’t know which happened first. The first, I’m in a playground with my cousin somewhere in MD and my dad pulls up in his white Subaru that he drove for at least a decade. He has an oversized ball and a baseball bat and he starts teaching me how to swing. Very Americana, I know.
The second one is around Christmas. I can’t be any older than 3 or 4. Dad left the house to “see Santa” and I’m home with my grandmother. I had this tonka truck and a toy school bus and I figured out that I could get my feet into them. Simultaneously, I figured out that if I took pulled some of tape from the cassettes out of the cassettes and hung them around my neck, that it would look like I was wearing the big chains I saw in videos. Skating around the living room in my tonka truck and toy school bus wearing my cassette tape chain was probably the most joyous 20 minutes of my life. And subsequently the only time Nana (everyone called her Nana…I never called her grandma a day in my life) was really mad at me. She yelled a lot, but she was never about that life.
#25: Someone who fascinates me.
It’s corny, but lately my mother. The older she gets, the more she starts telling these really incredible stories about her life and my family. It’s like, why weren’t you this cool when I was in high school? (We had a really bad relationship towards the end of high school, but she’s my bestie now.)

Lyrics that apply to my current mood…
“Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging, the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.”
“I was taught, if there’s something you can change around
Keep quiet, You got nothing to complain about
You got work to do. I don’t know if that work for you
But that’s how Mos work it through
And my work is personal, I’m a working person
I put in work. I work with purpose.”
