MICHELLE GOTTSCHLICH

HOMETOWN
Portage, Ind.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN BLOOMINGTON
7 years

BEST PART ABOUT LIVING HERE?
 A lot of lively and creative people live here--there's always something to get into; a show, an art opening, a film at the cinema, food, food, booze, food. It's also very walkable!

FAVORITE THING TO DRINK
Negronis and coconut flavored La Croix (not together)

GO-TO DRINK AT CARDINAL
Every cocktail by Baylee

TELL US SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT YOU.
I had a book of poetry published last spring!

ANY HIDDEN TALENTS?
Up to this point, I've never broken a bone, had a nosebleed, or been in a traffic accident besides falling off my bike

FIRST JOB/WORST JOB
First job was working at a IMAX movie theater when I was 15. Worst job was life guarding.

READ ANYTHING GOOD LATELY?
I'm currently reading Madness, Rack, and Honey. It's a book of lectures by the poet Mary Ruefle.

FAVORITE CEREAL
Honey Bunches of Oats

IF YOU COULD HAVE A DRINK WITH ANYONE…
Probably my maternal great grandmother Vanetta (who could drink like a sailor, I've heard)

IN THE THE FUTURE…
Married folks will have increasing trouble with hyphenating already hyphenated last names. It will eventually be more popular to use the maternal last name. Also, down with the patriarchy <3
