Column: XOXO, Michael Brown

The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you! I’m just a college senior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

Do you have a lot of friends who are also homosexual?

I have one gay best friend. I have a lot of friends who are females; my best of friends are females. I’m also not that person who likes to have a lot of friends. I like having a small circle.

If you got a local job would you stay near Huntington after graduation?

No, this is not what I want at all, nor do I see it happening because I’m not going to apply to one job here. There is nothing here in the Huntington area for me. I honestly don’t believe there is anything in West Virginia for me. I’m ready to spread my wings and fly. I know that West Virginia will always be home and a nice place to come back to for holidays, but I also really just want to start my own life elsewhere.

Do you believe in horoscopes?

Yeah, I actually find the zodiac and that stuff super interesting.

What do you spend a majority of your money on?

This is an easy question: food. I spend way too much money on food.

If you could have lunch with a celebrity who would it be and why?

I would want to have lunch with Wendy Williams. I absolutely love Wendy, and don’t care about all the negative things people say about her. I would just want to hear real life stories from her and have her tell me about her making it in the business. I’d use my time at lunch with her to pick her brain. Also, she is a foodie, so I know we would be eating good. She is like my great aunt in my head who I learn so much from.

Have you ever been out of country? If not, do you plan to travel abroad?

I have not been out of the country, but I do plan to travel abroad after graduation. My dad is actually sending me somewhere as a graduation gift. I don’t know where I want it to be. It’s a surprise actually, my step mom just asked me for five places I’d like to go. My five places were Greece, Dubai, Thailand, Costa Rica and Bora Bora.
