Who is your favorite artist? JOHN MAYER – yes I know he’s categorized as a “pop singer” but tbh he is SO much more than that and his musical talents are out of this world. Haters gonna hate but seriously if you have any doubts of his amazing skills check out his work with Dead and Company or the John Mayer Trio. Also really all of his music is amazing love you John <3 <3 <3

If you had to sing karaoke, what song would you choose? Burnin’ Up by the Jonas Brothers (including the Big Rob rap), obviously.

Who, dead or alive, would you want to have dinner with? Jim Morrison of The Doors. The Doors were the first classic rock band that I really got into on my own, and I’ve always been interested in the crazy/mysterious Jim Morrison. And after reading his biography: “No One Here Gets Out Alive” and learning so much more about him both in and out of The Doors I would really be intrigued in a dinner date with him.

What is the best class you’ve ever taken? One of the best classes I’ve ever taken was Sociology. It was just an intro class freshman year, but I loved the professor and I found all of the material super interesting-how could it not be? It’s literally the study of human society. Also all of the psych classes I’ve taken are very interesting- I love thinking about why humans do the things they do, and learning about what happens in the brain just blows my mind.

If you could time travel, which year would you visit? If I could time travel I would want to go to the late 1960s into the early 70s. So many amazing bands were around and thriving at the time like The Doors, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, The Talking Heads (I guess that’s more of late 70s?) etc. Really it was a great time for music and seeing any of those bands live would have been amazing.
