Everyone, meet Stone. Stone, meet everyone.
Here’s a preview of Stone and the conversation we had, if you want one: picture a sloth on Twitter, in outer space, listening to “With a Little Help From My Friends” by The Beatles while dreaming of being in Australia.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Stone Phillips, our very own Fiction Section Editor, on a higher level this week. He’s a hard worker with a very fun spirit. Say hi!
What is your position at The Circle?
I am the fiction section editor.
What do you think this position has done for your experience in college and for future work?
The position has allowed me to better develop skills working with a team. The submissions we get have also inspired me to work harder as a writer.
What would your life theme song be? Why?
With a Little Help from My Friends by the Beatles. Not an original choice I know, but my friends have gotten me out of some bad situations.
What social media (Tumblr, Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, etc.) would you say best fits your personality?
I don’t really use it anymore, but I guess Twitter. It’s short, simple, and to the point.
Lets say you had the choice to be anything in the world, what would you be?
Well I want to be a writer, but if it was anything I would want to be an astronaut or astrophysicist. I love anything to do with space.
A sloth. It moves at its own pace.
What is your hidden talent?
I don’t know if I really have one. I am able to retain a lot of details from any story. Books, movies, TV, anything. I guess that counts.
If you could give advice any celebrity, who would it be and what would you say?
I would tell Kanye he makes good music, but he is not a god.
What meme best describes your life?
Any Bad Luck Brian meme. Not being pessimistic, but weird things tend to happen to me.
If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go?
Australia. Always wanted to go there.
