    “Campus Cats: Ryan Hillis, Creative writing senior”

    What is the craziest dare you have
    ever accepted?

    I haven’t done too many dares, but I’ve definitely done some streaking before, because of a few dares.

    Who are your top three dinner guests?
    It would probably be important that they speak English, because I don’t understand any other languages. I think Albert Einstein would be really cool to meet; Buzz Aldrin would be very interesting, and Clint Eastwood.

    What is your hobby?
    Basically anything outdoors or any outdoor activity. I enjoy hiking, rafting and essentially whatever I can do outdoors to get out of the house.

    Do you remember who taught you how to ride a bike?
    Yeah, my dad taught me how to ride a bike and I rode it into a mailbox the first time that I got up. I had to go to
    the hospital.

    What is your favorite time of the day?
    It depends on the activity that I am doing. I generally like night a little better. It’s a little cooler outside and a little more enjoyable in Arizona.

    What do you usually do at night on the weekends?
    It just depends, but sometimes I go out to the bars. I generally just hang out with my friends at home and maybe have a couple of drinks.

    Do you have any superstitions?
    No, but I do believe that butterflies are
    good luck.

    If you could be either rich or famous which one would you choose?
    I think I would probably go for rich, because I don’t think I have the stomach to be a celebrity.

    What was the last movie you saw?
    “”Gran Torino.”” It was awesome. Clint Eastwood is definitely my favorite actor. I was glad to see that he was back on the big screen.
