From the Cult: VP External Interview

The VP External is arguably “the fanciest” of the Vice President positions, if you consider talking to the federal government fancy (we do). Although all the candidates have proved that they are up for the position through their fancy coats, have they proven that they can kick back and chillax? We asked them some silly questions to see if they can.

How late is too late to walk in on an hour long class?
It is never too late, unless everyone is gone and the next class walks in or the room is empty, that is 59 minutes of the 60 minute period. I would just say 25 minutes or halfway to keep it safe.

What song best captures the feeling of being in love?
Let's get it on! Nothing else could come to mind so I just have to go with feeling.

Describe the worst haircut you’ve ever had.
I cannot fully remember, as I was a small child, but I recall that after the haircut, my dad had to give me a buzz cut and payed me money not to complain. FYI my dad was cutting my hair to begin with, supposed to say I always went to the barber after, but my dad still claims he can do a better job for a cheaper price.

How long is too long to own a pair of shoes?
Well as long as the shoes do not hurt, they still fit, the colour is not faded, it is not severely scratched and there are no holes then I would say all good. If it is colonized by other living organisms such as spiders or mold, then that is too long.

Do you think you could beat me (Angela O'Donnell) in a game of Connect 4?
As I say with most things in life, only one way to find out! That said, I challenge you Angela O'Donnell, to a game of Connect 4 (if I lose the election, please let me win).

Off the top of your head and without looking it up, could you direct me to the landscape architecture building?
Yes keep walking around campus and ask this same question until you find the right spot or a map. Although I was a tour guide in the past, I can only direct you to Buchanan, the NEST, Asian Studies, the Nitobe gardens, etc. but not architecture!

How many whales have you seen in your life?
Just the one in Beaty, if you count Doug Ford then 2.

Can you skateboard?
Only in video games, I have no luck in the real world.

What was your high school mascot?
A wildcat.

How late is too late to walk in on an hour long class?
15 minutes is the latest. Anything more than that and the social stigma would eat me alive.

What song best captures the feeling of being in love?
Dream a Little Dream of Me, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong or Song on the Beach by Arcade Fire. If you don't like the first, you haven't been in love before. If you don't like the second, well I can't help you.

Describe the worst haircut you’ve ever had.
It's called a Flat-top. I had a big Fresh Prince phase.

How long is too long to own a pair of shoes?
If you can see your toe, it's time for them to go.

Do you think you could beat me (Angela O'Donnell) in a game of Connect 4?
If that's a challenge, the gallery has a big connect 4 set we can play.

Off the top of your head and without looking it up, could you direct me to the landscape architecture building?
On the corner of main mall and agronomy just after Macmillan. (No, I didn't look it up, I had a meeting there once and had to find it on Wayfinding at UBC).

How many whales have you seen in your life?
Like, not that many? I've only lived in Vancouver for a bit more than 9 years.

Can you skateboard?
Not well.

What was your high school mascot?
A "sundevil". Don't worry, I still think it's weird too.

How late is too late to walk in on an hour long class?

She woke me up daily

Describe the worst haircut you’ve ever had.
I was in the fifth grade and wanted to go through a "scene phase" but ended up with my side bangs covering half my face and a clip-in hot pink streak.
