What I Do, Job-wise: I think about things then write about them. Usually it’s Rock and Roll, women’s issues and essays.
 
What I Do, Fun-wise: Listing my hobbies makes me feel really boring.
 
My Motto: "Es muss sein.” 
 
My Anti-Motto: "The heart wants what the heart wants." Please, the only thing the heart wants is blood. 
 
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Leonardo DiCaprio. 
 
My “celebs to make out with” list: Pretty much the same as anyone who isn’t a celebrity: someone I’m attracted to.
 
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: “I Can Change” by LCDSoundsystem. 
 
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Little Failure by Gary Shteyngart. 
 
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Dresses. Always dresses.
 
Beauty Products That I Hoard: Nail polish. My friends and I refer to the hue by the name on the bottle, not the actual color. “Fishnet stockings” (Essie) is so much more fun to say than “red.” 
 
I smell like: A bakery.
