Q-and-A With Megan Skouby

Feb. 12, 2009

What types of TV show do you enjoy watching most: reality, game shows, drama, animation, news, etc.?
“Anyone who is ever my roommate on road trips know that if I have my choice Animal Planet will constantly be on the TV. I think it would be amazing to work for the SPCA and rescue abused animals. One day, you will all see me on the show Animal Cops crawling into a room full of poo to save 20 puppies! Haha.”

What do you plan to do following graduation?
“Well, since I didn’t pick a major until last year, I still have a class to take next year, so I will still be around until December finishing my degree. After that, I might play overseas, or even scarier, enter the real world and get a J-O-B.”

What did you want to be when you were little?
“When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a veterinarian, like my grandpa, but then my cat died when I was 13 and I decided I couldn’t deal with the heartbreak of all the terrible things that could happen to animals. I know, I know, this coming from the one who said it would be cool to be an animal cop!”

What professional sports team do you root for?
“I don’t really watch any pro sports. I think they are too egotistical. Although, whenever they are on, I root for Cleveland teams (Browns, Cavs). I don’t think I can help it though, it’s something in the water.”

What is playing on your iPod right now?
“Ha. I don’t even own an iPod and when I use someone else’s, I don’t even know how to use it. I have an MP3 player, but don’t really use it because I can’t figure out how to put new music on it. I usually just listen to the radio on the internet or even use that old fashioned radio!”

Which team trip was better, Greece or the Virgin Islands?
“Both of these trips were great. In Greece, we got more time to shop and look around the town. The Virgin Islands was more playing basketball in the little time we had there. If I had a choice to return to only one of them, it would be VI. The atmosphere is amazing and I would never get cold. I would go and never come back to the states if I had the opportunity.”

What celebrity would you like to have dinner with and why?
“I would love to sit down and have dinner with Angelina Jolie. She is a phenomenal humanitarian and is so talented in what she does. Although, I think we would have great conversation, it would have to be in private quarters so she wouldn’t get rampaged by crazy fans!”

If you could play another sport, what would it be and why?
“I wish I would have continued playing softball as a kid. I used to play on a traveling fast pitch team until seventh grade, when I moved. In this new town, they had just made the transition from slow pitch and I didn’t think the game was challenging enough, so I didn’t play anymore. When I grow older, I am definitely playing on one of those rec league teams.”

Do you share your birthday with any celebrities or famous athletes?
“October 16. While John Mayer was born on the same day as me, I think it is entirely more interesting that Marie Antoinette was killed on this day in the French Revolution. Also, in 1923, The Walt Disney Company was founded by Walt and his brother. No wonder I am such a huge Disney fan!

What was your favorite cereal to eat growing up as a child?
“Well, seeing as how I never really did grow up, I still eat all my favorite cereals. One of them is Cocoa Pebbles, because even after all the cereal is gone, the milk is now chocolate. This is one of the only ways I will drink milk, because I think it’s yucky, plain!”
