10 Totally Random Questions for Sarah Hayes

Cheryl McEvoy

1. What are you reading right now?

“Mountains Beyond Mountains.” I’m also reading right now “The Anatomy of Hatha Yoga.” “Mountains Beyond Mountains” is heartbreaking but excellent for anyone in the health profession to read. And the Hatha Yoga book is really interesting.

2. What is your favorite word?

Gentle. I think because I just took a workshop on gentle yoga, and I thought, “I like that word.”

3. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

I would be a neonatologist and a midwife. When someone asked me what I wanted to be when I was little, that’s what I always would say.

4.What issues are you most concerned about in this election?

We were just watching this morning about the economy possibly being in a recession, and that’s really interesting. Immigration is a huge one, too. I would definitely say immigration and environmental laws.

5.What is your favorite breakfast food?

Omelets and French toast and a really good cup of coffee.

6.What is one fashion trend you’re embarrassed to have followed?

Maybe in the ’80s, when I had feathered bangs.

7.When traveling, which would you rather travel in – a train, plane or automobile?

A plane. I designate planes with being something exciting, and going somewhere far … I’ve never taken a train for a significant amount of time.

8. As a University of Scranton alum, does “The Office” capture Scranton in all its (lack of) glory?

[Laughs] Scranton in all its glory – yep it’s pretty much summed up in “The Office.” Ain’t no party like a Scranton party, ’cause a Scranton party don’t stop.

9. What do you like to do in Philly?

I really like going out in Old City. I like First Fridays and going dancing anywhere, but dancing at Cuba Libre is really fun. I like going to World Café Live, too. I really like Josh Ritter, and we’ve seen him there twice.

10. What keeps you smiling no matter what?

I guess just having so much to be grateful for and just feeling connected with others in the Villanova community too. And loving my job and being with the students.
