What do you wish you'd known before starting graduate schools?
Well, this is my second iteration of grad school (I came here already with my MA), so I'm reaching quite far back.  But the greatest piece of advice about grad school in general is to not be afraid to ask for things.  By that, I mean just asking for things, whether it be monetary, advice, mentorship, feedback, etc, is the best (and sometimes only) way to get what you need in order to be successful in grad school.  So don't be afraid to ask.  

What is your favorite leisure activity?
Working out - Zumba, Pilates, Indoor Rock Climbing.
