What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?

“Well you’re in your little room, and you’re working on something good/ But if it’s really good, you’re gonna need a bigger room/ And when you’re in the bigger room, you might not know what to do/ You might have to think of how you got started, sitting in your little room” -The White Stripes, “Little Room”

What is your biggest strength?

If I see a wasp outside I can run away with the speed of an Olympic sprinter.
