How do you chill out when you’re stressed?

I go to this amazing Asian restaurant (my favorite) and treat myself to a meal. Food solves all my life problems; being upset about school is far worse than being worried about my budget.

What bands are you listening to right now?

I recently broke up with my ex, so I listen to uplifting songs that keep me on track with my goals, like Hadouken’s “Levitate” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”

What’s the quirkiest or most unusual thing about you?

I’m a better-than-average dancer, at least regarding Latin music. I was raised in a culture where being a good dancer is a must, and that’s what people remember about me after get-togethers.

What was your last Halloween costume?

A millennia ago, I made a full set of Pegasus armor (Saint Seiya) out of cardboard and aluminum foil; for a 13-year old, I was very proud of my work (even sold a couple “armors”). My friends didn’t look that proud, though.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Girls are very picky at your age, but that will change.
