  3. I have a serious aversion to tissues or any wet napkins

  4. I like to take steaming hot showers. I know this is terrible for my skin, but I’m always freezing and the heat just feels so good!

  5. Mezzaluna is my favorite restaurant in NYC. I could eat there every meal if I could. Fun FactL When my mom was pregnant with me she ate there all the time, and claims that’s why I love it (PS - you MUST get the iced tea)

  16. I’m a complete introvert, but extremely outgoing in work settings.
