We have a new addition to our Magoosh family! Meet Rita, our new Inbound Marketer! 🙂
Hey there Rita! 🙂 What is one of your favorite hobbies?
I’m not sure how strange this is, but I love to bake. I think I was born with a 6th baking sense … I rarely follow a recipe and never believe my kitchen timer, but my culinary experiments tend to be very successful. I love to collect recipes, try new ingredients, and then share (and eat) the end product. I really should have been a pastry chef, but I could never get up that early.
If you could time travel, what time period would you go to?
Ok, two answers:
1. 1775 -1789 Paris. I’d walk the grounds of Versailles, gossip with the nobility, check out Marie Antoinette’s closet (try on some awesome wigs), and then get back to 2013 for a hot shower before the Revolution and all the guillotine business begins.
2. I’d want to see what my parents and grandparents were like at my age. I wonder how similar our lives are!
What’s something funny you tell your friends about Magoosh?
I’ve been trying to explain the culture of riddles and word games … but I’m still learning the rules myself.
What board game could you not live without?
I could literally live without all board games.
But! I’m always up for a rousing game of Celebrity. The way I play, people submit the name of any person or character (alive, dead, fictional – it’s all good), and put the names in a hat. Then, everyone divides into two teams. In the first round, the player giving the clues draws a name and describes the person with words, but without using his/her name. In the second round, the player must draw clues, like in Pictionary. And in the final round, the player must use charades to give clues. Definitely a good time, and a great way to be totally ridiculous.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?
I’m way too boring to do crazy things. That said, in high school, I jumped off the roof of a two story house into a swimming pool. And another time, while studying French immigration politics in Paris, I took an overnight train to Munich to attend Oktoberfest, and then took an overnight train back and took a 7am oral final exam. Which I aced! In French!
