15) What did you hate at 15 which you love now?

At 15 I hated basically everything lol. I was very moody and sad. Now I love most things :)

14) What TV show were you obsessed with at 14?

I think I had an obsession with Pretty Little Liars probably because all the girls on there are so pretty.

13) 13 is unlucky for some. Do you have anything that you’re superstitious about?

I don’t think I’m a very superstitious person to be honest. I actually had to google what superstitions there are to answer this question lol. I do believe in a lot of crazy things though like aliens, higher powers, ghosts and stuff like that.

12) If you could live the life of any other person for 12 hours, who would you be?

Dr. Steven Greer. He has studied UFOs and extraterrestrial contact and I would love to find out all the things he knows.

11) Who was your best friend when you were 11?

Probably my neighbour Connor who lived down the street. I remember telling my friends that I had a crush on him when I didn’t to hide in the closet but really we were both gay.

10) Which bad habit do you hope to have quit in 10 years time?

Giving my time to things and people that do not deserve it.

9) What was your biggest fear when you were 9?

Probably snakes. Around 9 years old was the first time I saw a snake. I was at day camp and a counselor picked up a giant one about 6 feet long. I’ll never forget.

8) When you were 8, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a professional guitar player. It kinda worked out lol.

I guess I’d say gluttony because food rules.

6) You can invite six people to your dream dinner party (dead or alive), who would you invite?

Lizzo, Alok Vaid-Menon, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Steven Greer, and obviously Olivia Barton (my girlfriend) because I don’t want to have to give her a play-by-play to catch her up on all the amazing conversations.
