What’s your motto?
YOLOAFAIK. You Only Live Once, As Far As I Know.
What would you say is the most challenging thing you have climbed - whether physically or metaphorically?
I’m not sure. Well, the physical one was a boulder in Peterskill with a big scary overhang. It wasn’t technically tough, just terrifying- big swinging moves where you had to trust that your hands would be able to find something you could hold on to. But it was the most rewarding thing I’ve climbed.
I think the metaphor works there too though, taking a job as a writer for a website and dropping out of college was pretty scary, but it has ultimately been rewarding.
Which world history character do you most dislike?
This is a trick question right? I have to say Hitler. This is some kind of trick where if I don’t say Hitler you just tell everyone I’m a monster. Hitler.
What is your favorite post-workout snack?
Bananas and Peanut Butter. Gonna go eat one now. BRB. K, back. It was delicious.
Which activities make you lose track of time?
Sleeping. No matter how much sleep I get I always want more. I’m insatiable. Both for sleep and bananas and peanut butter.
Probably one of our favorite Cory Vines Neighborhood interviews.
