PRINCETON PREFROSH ARE CONFUSED BY CAMPUS MAPS, THINK GRITS SOUND DISGUSTING AND REALLY, REALLY LIKE SUPERMAN
[Editor's Note: I am extremely excited to reveal our first-ever 21 Questions with a composite person! Here, one collective prefrosh answers all our questions.]
What were you doing 72 minutes before the admit decisions came out?
Since I’m a sleep deprived senior, I was taking a nice nap. There was no way I could have waited three hours between school and the decision time.
Uh … my host, John Lack.
In one sentence, what did you do all day?
I relaxed, you know, got mango-ed at the lassi study break and then Frist-ed it up.
11:00 PM. I’m efficient.
Do you believe in Santa?
No. When I was in third grade, my parents told me that they put the presents under the tree. I was heartbroken for about an hour or so, but I let it go. I mean, how would Santa get to all the houses? Quantum physics?
What do you do to unwind?
Lately I’ve been going back to NFL Street 2. It’s a PlayStation 2 game.
I like to eat food. When there’s food in front of me, I can’t stop. The dining halls, man, next year I’m going to get fat.
What is the best place on campus?
Firestone! I like the moving shelves and I love books — I like their smell. My favorite book is Catch 22, but it doesn’t smell really good because I just bought it.
Favorite Youtube video?
“Charlie Bit My Finger.”
Favorite Disney movie?
Finding Nemo. Krush the sea turtle was my favorite.
Oatmeal or grits?
I’ve never had grits but it sounds disgusting, so I’ll say oatmeal.
What makes you laugh?
Unintentional humor — and knock-knock jokes. Favorite knock-knock joke? The one with the orange, you know: knock knock, who’s there, orange … fast forward and … orange you gonna say banana?
What’s your personal catchphrase?
I don’t know how to put it into words but if I did it would probably be vulgar. That, or “BAMF.”
Favorite childhood book?
Introduction to Differential Equations by Hewitt.
In 25 years …
I will be a software engineer for Apple in California. I might have a dog, but no cats and definitely no guinea pigs.
“Rugrats.” My favorite character was either the dinosaur — oh! Reptar — or Tommy. “All Grown Up” was just disappointing, though.
I never really read comic books when I was younger, but Superman definitely has the best name.
What are you afraid of?
I don’t like jumping out of planes. Other than that, I’m pretty much like Superman.
What does your bedroom at home look like?
My bedroom at home hasn’t been updated for quite some time. I have choo-choo train wallpaper. I changed by bedding, though: it’s light gold. I also have a bobble head collection but I had to burn LeBron James. Do you know how hard it is to burn ceramic?
Princeton Preview was …
… was very unexpected weather-wise and buildings don’t have names on them so you get lost, but it was amazing to meet all of the people here.
What do you think makes a Princetonian?
The ability to stay up till 4:00 AM and still show up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to class.
