Originally from McLean, VA – Minneapolis, MN is now home!
Your top 3 items during social distancing:
A few bags of Spyhouse coffee, a robust spice drawer, and a bluetooth speaker.
Go-to comfort food:
This digaag qumbe recipe has become a comfort staple after a former coworker shared it with me last school year. It hits that sweet spot of heat, filling, warm spices, and just feels good to make.
Your drink of choice:
Vodka. We’re all stocked up with two handles, some club soda, and a case of white claws.
To re-watch: 30 Rock
To keep up with: RuPaul’s Drag Race
I always say “I’m not really a movie person” but I’m a sucker for the escapism, fantasy, and visuals of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Whether or not it’s a hot take, I will die on the hill that Infinity War is by and away the best MCU movie (so far).
Favorite board game:
Everything! Puzzles, Settlers of Catan, Dungeons and Dragons, cards, etc. FYI that for those of y’all in isolation/quarantine there are so many ways to play games with one another online! Dominion has a free online platform, Magic the Gathering is free to play online, Ticket to Ride is $10 on Steam.
App getting you through the times:
I would already be nothing without my Zoom account.
Go-to workout you can do in your home:
Dance party for one. For tips: Physical – Dua Lipa
Place you can go to get out of your house without putting yourself at high risk:
Lakes! Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes for a reason – so many remote locations for a peaceful, remote walk within an hour drive of the Twin Cities.
Songs on repeat:
Youuu – COIN, Stupid Love – Lady Gaga, Modern Loneliness – Lauv, Wannabe – ITZY, Sugar – BROCKHAMPTON
Book you’re reading:
