What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Not just me, to have all my friends and family be taken care of. To have everything I need, but not too much because I want to be grateful for what I have. I don’t want to be drowning in money.

What is your greatest fear?
The idea of my family being in pain.

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
I’m a really bad procrastinator.

What is the trait you most deplore in others?
I hate it when people lie. I cannot stand liars.

What is your current state of mind?
Very stressed.

On what occasion do you lie?
Only when it’s gonna help someone.

What do you most dislike about your appearance?
I don’t think that there’s one thing that I dislike above others.

Which living person do you most despise?
Someone who’s causing something really bad.

What is the quality you most like in a man?
Treats his family well.

Don’t put others down.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
I always say that I’m gonna quit, and I never do.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
I really love my mom. Not like in a weird way, I just love my mom.

When and where were you happiest?
When I travel, just in general. I really am so happy when I travel.

If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
I would come back as some sort of fish or a dolphin. I just want to be in the ocean, that’d be so cool.

Where would you most like to live?
Somewhere in Europe.

What is your most treasured possession?
I have this one necklace my grandma gave to me before she died. It’s completely broken, but I still have it.

What do you most value in your friends?
I want them to be truthful with me and I want to enjoy being with them. I don’t want someone who I’m going to have to constantly worry about if I’m doing something wrong.

What are your favorite names?
Sailor because I find it cute, and Francesca because it reminds me of San Francisco.

What is it that you most dislike?
People who put others down to make themselves feel better or someone who is completely fake.

Of old age, surrounded by my friends and family.
