Hey Texas Thespians! During this quarantine, my fellow State Thespian Officers and I have had to adjust to a new way of living...just like you all. Despite many things trying to bring down our moods, we have persevered and found joy in the simplest of things. Thus, I bring you a very chaotic, creative list of questions that have been answered by each STO. We hope our answers can remind you to stay positive and fill your days with fun. Without further ado, 13 questions with 18 STOs.

“I wish I could say Larry the Lobster, but I’m Gary: unimpressed at everything.” -Jackson B.
“Probably Patrick because I'm always hungry. Always.” -Avery
