Welcome to our new series, where you can get to know SRL’s staff better with some hand-picked recommendations! First up is Miss Codi--associate instructor for our younger students!
Books: Twisted Fairy Tales. Seeing the different ways those could have gone is so interesting!
Food/Recipes: Our go-to is a pasta dish with lots of veggies and ground turkey. Recently we’ve been doing a meal kit, and I love the variety we eat now.
Take Out: Vegetarian sushi, especially if they have mochi for dessert!
Video Game: Hidden object video games are lots of fun. My husband and I put them up on the TV to play together, and see who can find the objects first.
Small Business in Area: Farr’s Sporting Goods. We went in to get disk golf discs, and were pleasantly surprised at how much of a selection they had.
Must See Natural Wonder: Niagara Falls
Coffeeshop: Starbucks. I try to go to different local shops, but I keep coming back.
Restaurant: Carlito’s Bakery or Market on Main.
Dessert: Mochi or macarons!
Ice Cream Flavor: Cherry
Outdoor Activity: Disc Golf. Love the course at Wickham, but there are so many now, it’s great!
Board Game: Disney Sorry. Easy to talk around with friends, but still fun to play with everyone.
Vacation (One Day!): Disney World. I also would love to go on a train tour of Europe, but that’s a little farther out.
TV Shows: Currently WandaVision, but all of the new Disney+ content has been awesome. I loved The Mandalorian and am really excited for the Loki show (as well as the Boba Fett show!)
First Job: “Tour Guide” for 5 Wits. I got to spend my time leading Spy Missions and Guiding Tours through being trapped in the Nautilus.
Guilty Pleasure: McDonald’s Happy Meals. I try so hard to stay away from fast food, but if I’m going on a long drive I’m always tempted.
Pets: Two cats, Luna and Rowena. They are sisters and almost 5 years old, but still love to cuddle with each other!
Tips for Productivity: Make a list so you have a visual representation of what needs to be done and you can see your progress. Tackle things in small pieces, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
Advice for Dancers: Try to practice several times a week. Record yourself so you can see what you need to work on, instead of trying to fix it in the moment.
Tips to Cheer Up: Go for a walk, cuddle with animals, or talk out the situation. Removing yourself from the situation by going for a walk helps to give some perspective, which is the same with talking it out. Cuddling with animals just gives you time to calm down.
