I'll Be There For You

1) This song begins with, "So no one told you life was gonna be this way …" What do you wish you knew five years ago about your life now?
I wish I knew I would be strong enough to help a student with their mental health struggle

2) This is, of course, the theme from Friends, which is frequently shown back-to-back on TVLand and TBS. Have you ever "binge-watched" a show, catching episode after episode
? I frequently binge-watch Friends.

3) On the show, Monica and Rachel shared a beautiful 2BR/2BA Soho apartment with a private balcony. It's estimated that such a pad would cost at least $3500/month in today's real-life New York. Describe your dream home. I really love where I am

4) Of the six main characters, only Chandler was an only child. Do you have any siblings? I have three older sisters

5) Gunther was the barista at Central Perk, the coffee shop where the Friends hung out. He had an ongoing, unrequited love for Rachel. Are you crushing on anyone right now? Does he/she know? George although, I would consider John Stamos

6) Currently Matt ("Joey") LeBlanc stars in the Showtime series Episodes, playing a character named Matt LeBlanc. If there was going to be series based on your life, who would play you? Melissa McCarthy

7) Courtney Cox, who portrayed Monica, has the Twitter handle @CourtneyCox and has 628,000 followers. What was your last tweet?

8) The creators of Friends were massive soap opera fans. They named their characters after recurring characters on All My Children* and had Joey appear on Days of Our Lives. Have you ever been hooked on a daytime drama? I was really hooked on Guiding Light in the 80s (when Kevin Bacon was on)

9) The band who performed this song, The Rembrandts, took their name from the famous Dutch painter. Can you see any artwork from where you're sitting right now? Tell us about it (and yes, a school painting by your 7-year-old nephew counts). I see a grouping of photos I took when vacationing in Spain

*According to IMDB: Ross for Ross Chandler, Joey for Joey Martin, Chandler for the Chandler family, Monica for Monique/Daisy Cortland, Rachel Greene for Janet Green, and Phoebe for Phoebe Tyler Wallingford.

And you can sure tell that you're sisters!

I would have Roseann Barr play me. That is my kind of sarcastic humor...

I don't remember Kevin Bacon being on a soap. Demi Moore and Rick Springfield were on the ones I watched.

You have one for the best hearts in this world, and the first step in helping is listening and being able to really HEAR. Keep up the good work.

I'm going to picture you as Melissa McCarthy from now on. This is not a bad thing.
