Question: What do you usually do during breaks?

Answer: I watch movies, TV shows, Christmas movies. I want to do cross-stitching, and I just sleep a lot. I like to watch things over the break, no homework. 

Q: Who’s your favorite music artist?

A: Oh that’s a hard one. Charlie Puth. His songs are really unique and catchy in my opinion, and it talks about life’s problems, that there’s always gonna be pain because pain is a part of life. Without pain, there’s no sweetness.

Q: Would you rather feel constantly sleepy or constantly hungry? Why?

A: Hungry, because you have to be full so you can have the ability to sleep and not think about why you’re hungry. It’s called the concept of food coma. You have to eat something first and then can you go to sleep.

Q: If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?

A: Paying off my mortgage. I would like to pay off my parent’s house because there’s so much, college tuition, and probably take my family to travel, to see Italy, Barcelona, and maybe visit my hometown, which is Vietnam.

Q: Do you believe in any conspiracies?

A: Yes! Aliens are real because the world, the universe is so vast. Within the universe, there’s a bigger universe, not just our universe, not just our solar system. I don’t believe that we’re the only ones who exist. 

Q: What would you say is one of the best shows on TV/ Netflix right now?

A: As of now, I’m watching Hawaii Five-0 because I like crime and action. There are times where it’s humorous and it’s twisted. I kind of predict the criminals as I watch so then, later on, I’m like “I knew that was him! I was right!”

Q: If you could switch lives with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose?

A: Probably Alessia Cara because she sees the unique and good things in the world. She’s a teenager, so I can relate, and she’s so talented and she’s achieving so many things at her age. Maybe I could see if my life is normal, like would I consider my life as a blessing or hers. It might be nice to observe from an outside perspective.

Q: What would be your spirit animal?

A: I’ll just say tiger because there are times where I can be really passionate about something. I don’t get violent or anything, I’m just really passionate about it, and I don’t want to be picked on. I think a tiger is the best spirit animal to not go from predator to prey. 

Q: Would you rather give up bathing for a month or give up the internet for a month? Why?

A: Bathing because, in today’s technological world, you can’t go for a day without internet because it’s terrible. It’s like taking my heart out of my body. It’s like I can’t function because I’m always on the internet about 24/7. We’re so involved in it, we need it for almost everything, especially communication. 

Q: What’s something about you that you think other people should know?

A: So, a lot of people see me as a nice person, like I’m always happy, but there are days where I won’t show it to them.  I’m not always positive all the time. There are times where I just want to be like everyone else and I don’t have to be judged by my level of positivity. There are times where I can be sad or gloomy or angry. Those are human emotions that we all feel, and you can’t just label a person as one of them.
