"I guess to just make the most of it. I want to spend what time I have left with the friends I have."
"So you're a senior?"
"A fifth-year. I'm getting my post-bac in bio."
"To you, what is the most interesting thing about biology?"
"Well right now I'm taking an evolutionary medicine course and I thought it was really interesting because many diseases that occur in humans also happen in animals, but physicians don't study them together. We can gain a lot from studying with vets also."

"What kind of music do you play?"
"I play a lot of Christian music and some R&B."
"Do you play often?"
"Every other day. I would play all day if I could."
"What's your favorite thing about it?"
"I love when all these sounds come together. I love harmonizing. Music just calms you. I like all types of music really. It's a way for people to express their background and where they come from. It's unique."

"What is something you've designed that you're most proud of?"

"Aw, that's really awesome."
"Yeah. Oh, my name is Vanessa Carlton."
"Wait. What. Like *sings intro to 'A Thousand Miles'* Vanessa Carlton?!"
