Common misconception about me:
A lot of people think that I saved the Pentagon from a terrorist attack on December 3rd, 1997 at 9:27 a.m. but that simply is not true.
Most creative gift, given or received:
Some guy once gave me a half-empty jar of peanut butter, a heavy-duty voltage regulator, and a map of Steve Buscemi’s house. Not really sure what that was about.
Movie you’ve seen most:
I’ve never actually seen Shrek but I’ve heard good things about it.
Book you’ve read the most:
Contrary to popular belief, I actually can’t read.
One thing I cant live without:
A petri dish with a single Glial cell from Reagan’s brain, like the one that all Republicans have. I keep it with me at all times.
What you wanted to be at age 10:
I wanted to be a chemical engineer until I realized that I would actually need to know chemistry to do that.
Teacher pet peeve:
I really hate it when teachers tell me what constitutes a “good grade” or a “bad grade.”
“Procrastination” implies that I eventually actually do the work.
Sometimes lay my refrigerator horizontally, fill it with marmalade, and pretend I’m on a deep space voyage in hypersleep.
Favorite thing about being a senior:
If you walk up to a freshman in the library and say “can I have my seat back” he’ll give you his chair. Even if you just walked in to the library.
Movie star you wish you could take to prom:
Topic you love but wouldn’t talk about in a college interview:
I’ve always loved knitting but wouldn’t talk about it because I can’t knit and actually I don’t like knitting.
Favorite classes you’ve taken at Milken:
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
Funniest Hebrew word:
Most memorable learning experience:
Jewish Thought with Mr. Shine has definitely been very eye opening, and has changed the way I will practice Judaism for the rest of my life.
Most purchased item in Student Store:
I have like 90 of those sweatshirts. I don’t know why I keep buying them but I do.
Favorite Milken Trend:
I really liked the trend where people started all saying words backwards and lighting their hair on fire.
Most beloved/interesting item in your school bag:
The Declaration of Independence
Where do you sit at lunch:
I used to sit at lunch, but then someone moved that table so now I stand during lunch in protest.
