Q4. If you had a time machine would you rather go back in time or into the future?

Q18. What was the last movie you watched?
A. A Quiet Place. The horror movie. Loved it. Brilliant piece of cinema.
Q19.What was the last movie that made you cry?

Q22. If you had to get married to the last friend you texted, how would it go?
A. It would go terribly, considering he’s a guy too. Lmao.
Q23. Would you ever go on a blind date?
A. Not sure if I’m brave enough to do. But sure, what the heck? Let’s throw caution to the wind and take a shot at it. YOLO.
Q24. Do you mind getting famous even if it’s from bad publicity?
A. Not only do I mind, but I mind a lot.
Q25. Would you switch lives with anyone famous or not famous, past or present? If so, who?
