Off the field with Alexa
The thing I like most about Brown...
Taking classes that I love, playing lacrosse with people I love, and the V-dub
Favorite classes at Brown...The American Presidency & Human Sexuality in a Social Context
Favorite Brown tradition...Reading Periods and Midnight Organ Concerts
Superpower I would want (why)...Teleportation. It would save time, money, energy and just be really cool. So often I will wish I was somewhere but it would take too long to get there.
Pre-game ritual...Walk to the omac (while listening to my playlist I make at the beginning of the season) really early because I don’t like waiting in my apt, bike/heat and stretch (while listening to the playlist), chat with brian and wait for the rest of the team to show up.
My life's theme song...Lookin for a good time-Lady Andtebellum
Favorite movie from this past year...Inception
TV show I want to be on...Bones
Favorite book(s)...Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series
Favorite character in literature...Howard Roarke in Fountainhead
Teammate I would change places with...Kaela McGilloway - I would love to hear exactly what is going on inside her head.
Favorite Olympic sport...Track and field…beach volleyball…I love the Olympics
Pet Peeve...When people are late. Most of the team can affirm this pet peeve. Or when people interrupt each other.
My ideal day...Game day
Item that best describes me...Item? That is too vague. I can do an animal (I would be a wolf) or a vegetable (I would be an artichoke)...Maybe my hiking boots: sturdy, water resistant, comfortable, all-purpose, and active.
Person in history (past or present) I would most like to meet...Clint Eastwood
My post-Brown ambition...To be as happy as I was in high school and college
