Super Punch Interview: Miles

(Super Punch interviews are posted every Monday. Please read the bottom of this post if you'd like to participate.)

Meet Miles:

1. What is your idea of the perfect day?

Wake up before the sun rises. Pick up a few good friends, some coffee and snacks. And drive off into the sunrise on a roadtrip to someplace new.

2. Describe one of the best moments in your life:

During my last semester of college I was thrown a birthday party. Nothing major, just about a dozen close friends hanging out having some drinks, having some laughs. And as the evening progressed I sat back and looked around the room and came to a realization. What struck me was how in the span of a few short years we all had all gone from total strangers to incredibly dear friends. And I realized then, that none of the failures and hardships experienced in college would ever come close to this clear victory of loyalty and friendship. Later that evening I drank too much and fell asleep in a bathtub.

3. What is your most common nightmare?

The one where there is a wild animal loose in my apartment that I cannot get rid of it. This animal normally has some strange and dangerous ability that no normal animal has. The animal varies, but some memorable ones include a big dog that can pass through doors and a scorpion with a tail that can extend super far.

4. What are your three favorite possessions?

My car that gets me around. An old pair of hiking boots that do the same. And an old stuffed monkey from back in the day.

5. What is your goal for 2011?

To either be rolling along on a post grad track in cognitive psych. Or to hike as much as I can, if not all, of the Pacific Crest Trail. We shall see how 2010 goes first.

6. What super power would you most like to have?

To be able to make exact duplicates of myself at will, and be able to absorb the duplicate’s gained knowledge and experiences later. (I.e. Marvel’s Multiple Man.)
