20 Questions: Take 1

I've gained quite a few followers in the past week or so, and I thought it would be fun to share some things about me. Now that you know I'm a violinist.

I found these questions in a magazine about Greenville, and I thought they were fun.


What one thing really makes your day?
I always smile when I get a sweet text from Daniel.

Is your desk messy or neat?
It's messy at the moment, but usually I'm very neat.

What was your first job?
I'm looking for it.

What is your pet peeve?
Besides people invading my personal space, it annoys me when people don't know how to drive. That's pretty much the entire population of Greenville.

What is your favorite thing about Greenville?
I love that it's close to the mountains and only a short drive to the beach. I also love that it has the cultural appeal of a big city yet still retains a lovely small-town charm.

What was your first car?
A mauve 1995 Toyota Camry.

What is your favorite comfort food?
Macaroni and cheese. And chocolate, of course.

What is your idea of a dream vacation?
Well, if we're talking about a location I've never been to, I would love to relax by the blue waters of Santorini, Greece. But London will always hold a special place in my heart.

What store would you choose to max out your credit card?
J. Crew. Or Banana Republic.

What is your favorite thing to cook?
Chicken and snow pea pasta.

What was your favorite subject in school?
Music, of course. And English.

What advice would you give a student just starting out?
Do what you love!

Do you prefer the mountains or the beach?

Have you ever met a famous person? Who?
I've met lots of famous classical musicians including Arnold Steinhardt and Lynn Harrell.

If you could invite five people, living or dead, to dinner, who would you invite?
Jane Austen, Itzhak Perlman, Elizabeth I, Johannes Brahms, and Abraham Lincoln

What is the best gift you have ever received?
An education!

What makes you laugh?
My friends.

What chore do you really hate to do?
Wash the dishes.

What do you like to do on your day off?
Curl up in a comfy chair and read. Watch movies. Craft.

I can't live without my...what?
Computer. Sad, I know.

Aw, love this! Nice to meet you, Em :)

My pet peeve: People who are rude with their cell phones. When I go to dinner with friends, I know how close we are based on if I feel comfortable saying, "Get that dang thing off the table and put it in your purse. People got along without cells for a very long time, and nothing will happen in the hour you're going to spend with me."
