Today I have the great pleasure of introducing to you my bestest childhood (and on into adulthood) friend Emily! We were forced into friendship by our parents at the age of 7 and are so grateful they did because we are perfect for each other (in a totally platonic way). She went to BYU-Idaho, now lives in Utah, and served an 18 month mission for our church in Leeds England. She also has the most gorgeous red hair you will ever see and a ridiculous sense of humor. Her answers to these questions had me cracking up and totally sum up her personality in a nutshell:)

name: Emily Suzanne Wassink
1.What do you “do”?
I am not terribly fond of this question these days, as I don’t do much of anything because I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. So for the time being I ponder career options and work at the library.
2. Why do you do what you do?
I can’t make decisions. So I do nothing.
3.Where are you from?
The sweet state of Virginia! WOOOOO!
4. Favorite color?
Yellow, though I think I’m attracted to all bright colors.
5. Favorite food?
I’m kind of a mood eater, but cheese fondue is a classic. I’m also very fond of Thai food. Mmmmm….
6. Favorite shoes?
Anything that just slips on. I don’t want to tie or buckle my shoes.. Yes, I am that lazy.
7. Favorite place in the whole wide world?
I feel as though I haven’t seen enough of the world to properly answer this question. In my dreams it would be Ghana, though in reality probably anywhere those nieces of mine are.
8. Favorite piece of playground equipment?
Swings! Though those merry-go-round things are awesome. I heard they don’t make them anymore. Tragic.
9. Your funniest story?
(sigh) I think people only laugh at my stories because I’m already laughing. I was into retelling this story whenever I could for awhile: I was watching a movie with one of my brothers when he left to use my parents’ bathroom. When he came back he had green eye shadow on. “What’s on your face?” I asked. All he exclaimed was “Dang it, I thought I got it all off.”
10. Mac or PC?
Um. I don’t have a strong preference, but I use a PC.
11. Manual or automatic?
I don’t know how to drive manual. I spent one horrific day driving manual as a missionary. I still haven’t recovered.
12. What do you consider your best asset?
I have a winning smile? I don’t know. I asked Nate and he couldn’t give me an answer either.
13. Guiltiest pleasure?
Hulu is the worst thing that ever happened to me. That’s all I’m saying.
14. Biggest pet peeve?
15. What do you consider priceless?
I’m a big fan of quality time.
16. If you could sit next to anyone on an airplane, who would it be?
Someone I know. I think I’ve only done that two or three times in my whole life. But if I had to choose someone famous it would be….I don’t know. Maybe Sharon Creech. I love every book she ever wrote. Or Ingrid Michaelson. John Cusak?
17. What would you choose as your last meal?
Bruce Bogtrotter’s chocolate cake. It probably would, in fact, be the death of me. And I would be happy.
18. What era in time do you connect with the most?
Hmm. For the longest time I had a fascination with the WWII era. I can even remember the first time I learned about the Holocaust. I was in second grade and I was reading the Big Lie. Not that I wish I could live in that time period, it just intrigues me.
19. Your motto for life?
20. Best advice you can give?
Don’t take advice from me.
