Would you rather vacation on the beach or in the mountains?
I would rather vacation in the mountains. I would like to go on a relaxing vacation with my friends, where we hike and sit around the campfire making s'mores.
What was your first car?
My first (and current) car is a 2005 black Ford Focus named Fernando.
What was your favorite Halloween costume?
My favorite Halloween costume was when I dressed up as the Phantom of the Opera when I was about 11. I made the iconic mask out of a plastic Party City mask and remember being extremely excited about wearing a cape. No one really knew who I was, but I enjoyed getting candy.
What is your favorite way to spend your free time?
I am a big crafter and enjoy crocheting, cross stitching and painting in my free time.
