Tess Oberholzer

Brian Eisner & Spencer Slovic–Tess recently went to the state track and field championships for the second year in a row, so we had her answer some questions about track and other random stuff.

James or Brian?

—Both, obviously!! Hurdle Squad 2k14 fo evah (we’ll miss you Brian, thanks for that shoutout in appreciation chapel! <3)

Favorite track captain ever?

—Hannah Dugoni, she is a legend (sorry Spencer)

Did you play presidential bingo? If so, did you get bingo?

—I didn’t play, but I thought it was hilarious

Favorite subject?


Same-sex celebrity crush?

Opposite-sex celebrity crush?

Top Played song in iTunes?

—I have Spotify instead of iTunes, cuz I’m cool, but regardless it’s definitely a Marina And The Diamonds song or all the songs on The Blessed Unrest by Sara Bareilles

Last time you cried?

—Two Sundays ago at 10 pm as I started my homework

Last time you regretted being mean?

—I regret it every time, because I’m never mean on purpose, it’s just sometimes I try to be funny and it comes out really wrong

One thing you don’t want posted?

—I mean, nothing, cuz you could always post it anyway…

Favorite Kanye song?

—None of them? I don’t listen to Kanye (don’t hate me)

Favorite restaurant?

—Blue Hour

Favorite twitter account?

—I don’t have a Twitter, so I don’t really know, but Harry Styles’ tweets are adorable

Favorite track event?

—I love watching the 800, but my favorite to run is definitely 100 hurdles

Chicken or beef?

—Chicken, I don’t like red meat

Science research?

—This is the vaguest question ever. If you’re asking what my project was, I tried saving the world from breast cancer, which didn’t work (shocker), but it got me third place so I guess I can’t complain. And if you’re asking what my thoughts are on the science research program in general, I think it’s a great way for interested students to explore their passions, but personally I would rather do another LJP instead.

What are your thoughts on the relationship between Monica Wehby’s winning of the republican primary for the senate election and the problems that have been going on with the clock in the Great Hall?

—Monica Wehby obviously stole the Great Hall clock to hang in her new republican-primary-winner office 

First impression of Austin Goldsmith?

—An adorable person who is always smiling and happy

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

—I’m not a woodchuck, so I wouldn’t exactly know, but I feel like maybe I heard somewhere that he’d chuck as much as a woodchuck could if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

What are the practical applications of being a hurdler?

—I can confidently overcome any obstacles that are 33 inches or shorter.
