Say hello to Carmen, Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles candle-making production assistant! She joined me in early September, and has been vital in helping me fill orders for Target and keeping me sane while I paint hundreds of cans. She plays a mean violin as a concert violinist for the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, and rumor has it she has some really sweet dance moves. To help you get to know this gem of a human, I asked her a few questions:
What is your passion?
Music! Haha, of course.
What is one of your favorite pieces of music?
Barber's violin concerto. It's beyond beautiful, and Barber as a composer has such a unique voice!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I've been working on the same (unfinished) novel since I was 12.
What do you like most about Chicago?
The variety of vibe from neighborhood to neighborhood—I love how it can feel like you're in a different city just two blocks away.
What is your favorite neighborhood?
Do you create art or crafts on your own? If so, what was the last thing you made?
I made my own planner with a blank notebook. I like that I can collage in it, and it helps me get stuff done!
What is your favorite Milton and Margie's scent?
Would you rather be the star of an awful reality TV show—some Kardashian-level nonsense—or be required to watch awful reality TV for three hours every day for the rest of your life? If you fail to watch the requisite amount of TV, one of the Kardashians would Tweet rumors about you.
I WOULD RATHER BE THE STAR, HANDS DOWN!! Though, the show would be very boring.
What would your show be called?
The Musician and the Medical Student.
