Favorite Saxatones Song: I could never pick just one 

Most Embarassing Moment: This actually happened recently, as I was coming home from practice. I stepped into the elevator and asked a guy next to me to press 3, my floor. I stepped out and walked to my room right next to the elevators and jammed my key into my lock, struggling for a lengthy 25 seconds until a boy opened the door and stared at me like I was deranged. Apparently I had stepped out onto floor 2. I stuttered, "Wait I'm so sorry, I thought this was my-" but he actually slammed the door in my face as I was apologizing. It was so humiliating I sprinted up the stairs to my room and briefly considered transferring before I calmed down.
