But if you really want to know what Whitney is like…

She loves anime

She ties her shoes sitting down, always

She talks smack on the basketball courts but she’s really no good

She has an irrational fear of metal jewelry touching her skin

She hates chocolate

She taught herself how to play the guitar

She writes in trees often
