Would you rather live somewhere that's really hot all the time or somewhere that's really cold all the time? Cold would be weird but hot would be better. So you would rather live somewhere that’s really hot all the time? Yes, so would you mom, you gotta admit it mom. I don't know if I’d wanna live somewhere that’s hot all the time or cold all the time because then you get bored of being hot or being cold. So that's why I like Michigan because we have all sorts of temperatures. Yeah, but I don't like the cold. How do you not like the cold you're in like shorts, socks and a t-shirt right now. Obviously you're not cold. I just like the summer mostly, then I can go swim in the pool, so it passes time. Oh, okay. Well, that's a good reason. But you know that you can have like an indoor pool, right? Yeah, but you’re not guys are rich enough to buy it, but if you were rich enough I would be begging for one. Oh well, go use the bathtub.
So what am I grateful for? And I know it's really hard for my dad not to be home, but I am really grateful that he gets to be with his parents. Especially with my pop-pop for his first chemo treatment, so he can just be there to support them and it sounds like they've been having a really great time. My grandparents got to watch a video of a New Year's production, my best friend and I did with our siblings and so I'm just really thankful that my dad has the opportunity to do that and stay safe from COVID. We've been hard core quarantining, my grandparents have their vaccine now. So, they really are being safe and I was so thankful that my dad got to do that because he really needed to have that time with his parents and it's been like a really good, I think relationship changing time for him and so I've been really thankful for that. So anything difficult? I kind of described the stuff with my pop-pop, but I think I'm just struggling in general with COVID right now because there are a lot of things I haven't processed. It's just everything has been so heavy, like it's first of all really hard for me to be so isolated from people, like I never thought of myself as a social person but during COVID I've realized I still need that contact with people and you know, just seeing my friends in person. So that's been a real struggle for me. And so I guess I just really haven't been processing things well, like just not working through my emotions with that or thinking about it a lot.m just struggling in general with COVID right now because there are a lot of things I haven't processed.

My biggest most successful mischief in high school? I went to a Catholic school with 44 other students, there's not much you got away with, so I can't even say I did anything successfully. However, I do remember now one night going with some friends, it was one of my junior or senior year. And we climbed up on the roof of the high school and mind you I said this was a Catholic school, so the priests lived like behind the school in a house cause it bumped up to a neighborhood. And they heard us, they couldn't see us, but they heard us. They never figured out who it was that was on the roof and we were of course up to teenage shenanigans and there may have been some vodka involved, but that was fun. Other than that, there was not much you could get away with in school everybody knew you and they knew your parents and your siblings and your cousins and it was too much connection.
Oh the way my childhood home smelled. My parents are hippies, my mom wears a lot of patchouli, like body butters and stuff like that. So I always imagine a lot of patchouli, a lot of like nag champa that incense. That's my favorite and my dad's favorite. So a lot of times our place smelled like that. Nowadays, it smells more like my mom's cooking. It always smells very spicy lots of chili, lots of cumin, lots of ... all that kind of stuff, always smells like onion or garlic or something like that, toast, everyone’s always eating toast or tea. So I associate a lot of it with the food smells. And I definitely took a lot of that with me in my apartment now, I still burn incense all the time, but I do have my own particular -- I'm very picky about scents, I like scents that I like. So there's this one perfume from Lush that I use religiously. I like when things seem like that -- it's kind of like a bergamot, some lemon grass, patchouli. It's lovely. Highly recommend. And then there's a aveda spray perfume that's supposed to be like a grounding and it has like vetiver -- how do you spell that? or say that? Vetiver? I don't know. And like a lot of like super heavy musky scent. It's not feminine at all. But I love to spray it on my bed sheets, whenever I get to refresh my sheets, like wash them, put them on. I like to put some of that on there, it's very nice. I also use it on my yoga mat. Yeah, that one's also very much so grown on me. A lot of people I don't think would like it, which is fair. It's a very strong scent.
The difference between a cupcake and a muffin? That's, that's interesting. I think a muffin is like more a miniature bread, and then a cupcake is like miniature cake. So, I think it's with the texture of -- but I don't know for sure -- but I think that's kind of what it is. A muffin is more bready and then a cupcake, you know, obviously that's cake. I think you can -- if you have a cupcake with no frosting, I think that's still a cupcake. But if you have a muffin with frosting, I think that's still a muffin, just it has frosting now. So, I think it's like what the actual thing is made of, where muffin is -- muffin's bread and a cupcake is cake.
