A Chipotle steak burrito bowl with extra cheese & guac & Disney Channel. (That’s 2 guilty pleasures, sorry!)

5. Who is your favorite dancer or choreographer?
Justin Timberlake? Haha

6. Who is your celebrity crush?
It used to be Zac Efron, but he’s still with gross Vanessa Hudgens who keeps sending nakey pictures of herself to people, so he loses this acclaimed spot in my questionnaire.

Stomping back into the Marlin restaurant kitchen at camp 2009 and stuffing our bags with chips and sandwiches under the glares of the cafeteria staff. Also, “Die together bitches!” – nuff said.
