If you had to live the life of a character in a song, which song would you choose?
Emily: “Caldonia” by B.B. King

Where would you most like to live or visit that you haven’t yet?
Emily: The Mediterranean Islands

Katrina: I’d love to travel anywhere new. Doesn’t matter where.
What was the last thing that made you really mad?
Emily: No sleep.
Melissa: The last thing that made (insanely) mad was this afternoon, when I was taking an online orientation that took an hour and then magically disappeared right before I finished it. I have to do it all over again.
Katrina: They didn’t have the dipping sauce I wanted at the Little Caesar’s tonight.

Katrina: Any bluegrass fest.
Whose career do you admire the most?
Emily: Julie Sweet
Melissa: The career I admire the most is my sister’s. She’s a wine maker in Oregon and has given up so much to pursue her passion. She always faces her fears head on and follows her wildest dreams.
