So I've talked about my dear friend Jacqueline A LOT since I've moved here because she is kind of the light of my life.
Not only does she help me by being my emotional support and family while I've made this scary move all by myself but this bish helped me carry at mattress down two flights of stairs and up three and for that I'm eternally grateful. She's written quite a few different articles for my blog but I'm proud to announce to you today that Jacqueline will now be a REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR.
That's right, because I'm not the only Sass in NYC! So without further ado here are some getting to know you Q's for Jacqueline to A, because you will be seeing A LOT of her.
1) You're an actress, a music aficionado and an ice cream scoop master? What are a few of your other favorite things?
I love reading! Since I graduated in May and I have a lot of time spent at home that's not being taken up by homework, I've been absolutely devouring books and I'm so pleased. I love photography, which I don't really do a lot of anymore, but is always going to be a huge passion of mine. Mostly film photography, but there's nothing wrong with digital! I like to bake and cook! I'm poor so I can't always make the most extravagant meals, but I make a mean chocolate chip cookie, let me tell you! But you're probably most likely to find me watching movies, tv shows, or (when I have the means) live theatre, and gushing about it for hours on end because I am so passionate about acting, it's a little overwhelming.
2) Ideal ice cream scoop (flavor, cone etc)?
Tough question. I'm going to combine to things from totally different places, but I would have to say the rainbow sprinkle waffle cone from Williamsburg Creamery with two scoops of cotton candy ice cream from Dave's Ice Cream in Hawaii...those chocolate chips, man. That's where they get you!
3) best record you've ever purchased?
These are the hardest questions I have ever had to answer in my life!!! I would probably have to say Give Em Enough Rope by The Clash. It was the first album I ever bought for myself after I got a record player in the ninth grade and it really helped me fall in love with The Clash (aka my favorite band, aka don't even get me started) and begin what I consider to be my true musical education.
4) Best concert you've ever attended
Two Door Cinema Club! Both times, I had more fun than any other show. Fun fact: seeing them was my first adult concert! They put on the most amazing show I have ever experienced and I can't wait for them to go on tour again, because they are my favorite people ever. Plus, there's really something amazing about going to a show where all of the songs are upbeat and dancy because you're constantly moving around and flailing and screaming and it's the best. Miniature Tigers and probably Motion City Soundtrack would be my runners up. So many good shows!
I wouldn't say there are specific people that inspire my fashion but there are certain looks that do. Attractive male English professors in button downs, sweaters, and patterned pants. Female superheros: they're always showing a lot of leg and have beautiful hair. Outfits worn on Full House because florals and babydoll dresses and silly socks. 1970's punk girls in lots of black and cool shoes. Effortless tomboyish girls in beanies and bro tank tops. The list goes on and on. I just really like to wear what makes me feel bad ass, more often than cute. But also sometimes really cute.

6) Favorite quintessentially New York thing to do?
Coney Island! The Museum of Natural History! The Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park! Those are my favorite things to do! Coney Island is the best (cough cough, we haven't gone together yet, Caelan, cough cough) and there's cotton candy and rides and the ocean and I have a lot of fond memories there. Oh, and there's an aquarium. The Museum of Natural History is fantastic because I love learning and museums and there's a huuuuge planetarium! And the Alice in Wonderland statue is my favorite part of Central Park and it has been ever since I was a little one!
7) Who are your Queens?
Kristen Stewart!!! She's my main queen. She's perfect in every way and I get very sad when people are mean about her. I wish to become her someday. I love Ellen Page and Janelle Monae, aka pretty girls who can rock suits! I love Tilda Swinton, Jena Malone, Merill Garbus from tUnE-yArDs. Samira Wiley is a big one, too. Oh man, the list goes on and on. Oh, and I can't forget my most major life style and feminism inspirations: Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie! If any of you guys haven't heard her TED Talk, get on that. Now! (But mostly just Kristen Stewart...swoooooooooooooon)
