What is your favorite object and why? I have two babies - my guitar and my camera. They are so important to me and who I am.

What is your favorite show? "Family Guy," typical.

What is your favorite store? Old Navy, all the clothes are pretty simple and comfortable.

What color would you change your eyes to and why? I like my eyes actually, but It'd be neat if they were a bit more green.

What song could you listen to forever? "Love Like a Sunset" by Phoenix, but there are more.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? The power of flying.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? I would travel to someplace beautiful, where you have no worries. I don't know a particular place just yet, but I am excited to find out later.

What do you think would be the best job to have? Being part of the CIA or FBI. Seems quite exciting and full of adrenaline.

If you could be an animal, what would you be? I would love to be a bird.

If you could switch lives with someone else, who would it be? If it were just for a day, I'd switch lives with Lacey Mosley of Flyleaf. I don't particularly like the band, but I would like to see what it's like to be the only girl in a band.
