My favorite trip was...

To Israel.

If I could travel anywhere it would be....

My favorite Darlington memory is...

Junior year skip day to Little River Canyon. Not sure if a memory involving breaking the rules is an appropriate answer, but it was a great day!

E-book or Hardcover?


Cats or dogs?


When I want to crush karaoke, my song is...

Nonexistent. Nobody wants to hear me sing.

What I like most about Darlington is...
