Keep. The. Baby. Alive. Lily Bellow's mantra for life.

What is the most memorable moment from your 18th year?

Truly I think I was in such a senior year haze, all my memories are mostly snapshots and feelings and smells. But I did direct a play which I remember every single moment of doing. 

When did you feel like you became an adult?

When I spent a predictable 45 minutes a month on the phone with Time Warner Cable disputing my bill and realized, no one else will do this and I really need this $5 they overcharged me. Then I had a baby and realized, oops I was wrong I'm not an adult.

What is most important rule you follow?

 Keep. The baby. Alive. 

What is the worst rule you’ve broken?

If you tell me something is a Rule, I am going to try as hard as I can to follow it because I am a lame person and I am scared of getting in trouble. But probably the worst personal "rule" I've broken is not speaking to the people I love with more respect and care 100% of the time. 

Also one time I accidentally (ok, not totally accidentally) stole a croissant from an airport!

What rule would you love to break, but haven’t?

Walking through the open subway "emergency exit" gate without paying a fare. I'm getting flushed just thinking about it. 

Who’s the biggest rule-breaker you know?

I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to pick someone iconoclastic and badass but the real answer to this question is clearly Donald Trump and I can't talk about it because I'm going to start raging out at my keyboard. 

What rule do you wish more people would follow?

Try to be kind.
