My dear acquaintance (hopefully soon to be friend!),

In almost every first interaction, people ask three (rather boring) questions:

  1. What is your name?
  2. What do you do?
  3. Where/what did you study?

Let me go ahead and answer these questions so we can move forward in our relationship!

  1. My name is Molly Gustafson. Yes, I am of Scandinavian descent. However, most people are shocked to hear I am 1/16th Native American… I guess the orange hair throws them off.
  2. Currently, I am a coffee barista. However, over the years I have been an electrician’s assistant, grocery store cashier, fast food worker, basketball coach, gym receptionist, charity intern, and nanny.
  3. I haven’t gone to university (entering gap year number four – woot woot).

Now, because I know you aren’t a boring person, I will answer a few interesting questions you should consider adding to your ‘first interaction questions’ repertoire.

  1. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? Either a sloth because they are the perfect mix of cute and awkward or jaguar because they are the coolest cats around.
  2. What is your least favorite song? Diamonds (sorry Rihanna), but my dad does the most annoying, painfully high-pitched impression I have ever heard.
  3. If someone was going to destroy every movie ever made and you could pick only one to save, which movie would you pick? Well, I would definitely find a way to sneakily save three movies: The Breakfast Club, When Harry Met Sally and The Princess Bride.

This has been a wonderful start to our friendship, hasn’t it? I would love to hear your answers to these questions, so pop on over to Contact and let me get to know you!
