For Halloween in the fifth grade, while other girls explored their feminine sides as the 90’s equivalent to Elsa from Frozen, I went as Marcia Clarke, the prosecuting attorney in the OJ Simpson trial. We had the same haircut. 

I read 'The Thorn Birds' for fun in my first year of high school. 

In the twelfth grade, I wrote my first play, a classic immigrant story of the American dream; I called it 'Xanadu'. 

I've pretended to be allergic to mushrooms for most of my life. 

Whenever I feel hopeless (bi-weekly), I google the try-out montage from the movie, Rudy. 

I like making things that are funny and sad. Clearly.
