Humans of USU: Eric Richins enjoys Halloween and hunting

On March 17, 2014

The Utah Statesman interviewed Eric Richins, a sophomore in psychology from Heber, Utah.

The Utah Statesman: What do you think is the meaning of St. Patrick’s Day?
Eric Richins: Pinching someone who doesn’t wear green, drinking, partying. I don’t do that, but yeah.

US: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
ER: Halloween. I love scary stuff. I love haunted houses. They’re my favorite.

US: What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had?
ER: Probably Superman when I was little. I don’t really care for dressing up. I just like haunted houses and the feel of Halloween.

US: Do you like scaring people people or being scared?
ER: Both. I mean, I don’t like being scared. I don’t think anybody does, but it’s funny after a little bit.

US: What did you do for spring break?
ER: I went pheasant hunting. That’s really fun. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I kind of just chilled and hung out with my family and friends.

US: What does pheasant taste like?
ER: Delicious. Chicken, but better.

US: What’s a good piece of advice?
ER: Stick with what you believe in. It’s one of the biggest things I’ve learned being on my own.

US: What was the best thing you ever ate?
ER: Steak from Ruth’s Chris in Park City. It’s like my favorite restaurant. It’s the best. Or my dad’s baby back ribs. Those are good. He makes his own barbecue sauce.

US: What’s the best part of the day for you?
ER: At the end of the day when you know you’ve accomplished everything you needed to get done that day, just that feeling of accomplishment.

US: What is your dream job?
ER: A sports psychologist for the Atlanta Braves. That or a clinical psychologist.

US: What do you dislike about Logan?
ER: I feel like it’s just a bubble a lot of the time when I’m here too long. I have to drive past Brigham City and go see the highway. I have to look at the highway.

US: What’s the best movie you last watched?
ER: “300: Rise of an Empire.” Just saw it in theaters, and it’s the best movie.

US: What makes it so good?
ER: The war, the blood and the gore.

US: We know you can do a handstand. What’s the coolest physical stunt you ever did?
ER: On my mission when I was running from a dog, a vicious dog, and I hopped this fence and I just cleared it full on. I just grabbed it and hopped over it. It was perfect … My suit and tie didn’t rip or anything.
