I run pretty well, I’m pretty good at video games, and I’m very good at eating all my food before most people have taken 4 bites of theirs.
What are some things you care about deeply?
My dog and my family.
What upsets you?
If you eat with your mouth open, we can’t be friends.
What grounds you?
Some of what grounds me is the environment I was raised in that served as a constant reminder to always maintain a humble, yet firm, attitude. But mostly, gravity.
