Me in Three

What are you currently obsessed with?
Dance parties with my toddler and listening to Tyler, The Creator’s last two albums. Not at the same time though.

If you had your own time machine, would you travel to the past or the future?
The past. I wanna see dinosaurs! And maybe my ancestors.

What’s your favorite midnight snack?
Ice cream and/or Ruffles.

This pretty much sums up my existence
