What's the most half-baked hobby you took on since the COVID-19 shutdown?

I haven't taken on any new hobbies, lol.

What are you binge-watching?

Black shows from the 90s/00s on Netflix!

What's the last thing that made you laugh out loud?

Pulling an egg out of the carton that was a perfect sphere, haha! It's the little things.

If you were to create a signature skate move, what would the move involve/look like?

When I was in high school, I took a series of photos with friends where we posed with one of our friend's skateboards and a pile of trash. My signature skateboard move might involve creatively falling over a pile of trash and somehow landing back on the skateboard, lol.

Anything you'd like to share with the world?

Nope :)
