This award is still up for grabs. Currently accepting submissions if anyone wants to take me out.

Person you got nervous meeting and why?
Honestly the first time I talked to Leeland Mooring on the phone was the most I’ve ever freaked out. Something about the time in my life when I started following his career really nestled him in a special place in my heart. Luckily he did like 90% of the talking. I’m better now lol.
