Lauren Leverone, Sophomore, Modesto High School
SONG STUCK IN MY HEAD: "They Call the Wind Mariah" by the Kingston Trio
DREAM JOB: I think it would be fun to be in a traveling chamber ensemble.
FAVORITE FOOD: I'm a big smoothie and milkshake fan. They're not really food, unless they're chunky smoothies.
Never miss a local story.
FAVORITE MEMORY: When my brother told me there was a bomb in the house and he took me outside. Back then, it was horrible, because I was crying. But now, I'm like, "Kudos, man."
IF MY LIFE HAD A TITLE, IT WOULD BE: "Oh My Gosh, You've Never Seen Juno?!?"
MUST-SEE TV SHOW: "The Dick Van Dyke Show." It requires having a DVD set, because it's not on TV anymore.
FAVORITE READING MATERIAL: Books, but it has to be a good book.
FAVORITE MOVIE: So, I really liked "Hairspray," but I think that my favorite kind of movies are concerts like George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh" and Simon and Garfunkel's "Concert in Central Park."
WEIRDEST PLACE TO TAKE A NAP: A bench at Great America. It was comfy, too.
MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT: Pretty much every day in orchestra. I don't really get embarrassed, I just turn red, but I don't know if there's a difference.
WEIRDEST THING IN MY LOCKER: Christmas-colored origami penguins.
SUPERPOWER I WISH I HAD: I would like to be able to transport myself. I can't drive, my parents don't always take me places, and I can't drive with teens, so I have to have some sort of transportation. Plus, I'm lazy.
FAVORITE ERA: The '60s, mainly because of the music. It was super awesome, as opposed to what we have now.
