EP or LP?

Who really knows.

Early bird or night owl?

Sometimes both if I need to be! I was strictly a night owl for a while, but as I am getting older, I am realizing the benefits of waking up early! I usually start my day around 6:30 am.

Sentinel rd! I’ve lived here my entire life. Every block has a memory attached to it and a person or people I know and love!

Favourite Park?

I guess I’d say, Downsview Park! It’s not the biggest park, but it’s close to home and has a lot of scenic spots that I really enjoy. I like sitting by the lake or going up to the top of the tallest hill when the sun is starting to go down.

I like

Favourite Toronto Staple?

I’d say either Sneaky Dee’s Nachos or Albert’s Roti – I haven’t been there but I heard great things and I love roti.
