Seniors Mackenzie Kelly and Jeremy Paul:
KN: When did you first start dating?
MK: That’s kind of tricky. We were together in April but we didn’t make it official until July.
JP: Why was that?
MK: Because I went away for seven weeks and I didn’t want to have a relationship while I was in Europe.
JP: What was the other minor reason? Do you not remember it?
MK: Oh, yeah. He wanted to start a relationship on an odd day and I hate odd numbers. So I had to wait until we came back on an even day.
KN: Well, Jeremy, is there an exact date for all of this?
JP: April 21 unofficially, July 18 officially.
KN: How did Jeremy ask?
MK: Actually, he didn’t. I made a bet with him that he couldn’t remember my number, but I didn’t yet know he was a math genius and he remembered it and he sent me a text saying, “I win.” After that we made a “bubble bet.” So, if I blew the bigger bubble he had to kiss me. I won and he had to kiss me and that was at my house the first time we really hung out.
JP: It was rigged.
KN: What’s Jeremy’s ideal date?
MK: Probably sitting there watching or playing video games and quoting movies.
JP: What? Whoa, it has nothing to do with video games. The quoting movies, sure.
KN: What about Mackenzie’s ideal date?
JP: The light show at the Botanical Gardens.
MK: He already took me on it, the Botanical Gardens.
KN: What’s Jeremy’s favorite movie?
MK: I’m gonna use what he just wrote a college essay about: “Zombieland.”
JP: Not really anything specific.
KN: What’s Mackenzie’s favorite movie?
JP: “The Breakfast Club.”
MK: Hands down, “The Breakfast Club.”
KN: What’s Jeremy’s current favorite TV show?
MK: Well, he watched “Teen Wolf” last night so I’m going with that.
KN: What’s Mackenzie’s favorite TV show?
