This is What Happens When I'm Bored...

100 Things You Might Not Know About Me.

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
I have a scar just into my hairline from my brother, Jed, throwing a rock on my head. He and I were building a dam in the creek in the backyard, and he was "tossing" me rocks to place on it (he doesn't like cold water, so I was doing the dirty work). He tossed a really big one when I wasn't looking, and it landed on my head. I guess I went under for a second and really scared him. I now have a nasty cowlick there and bangs do not often work for me as a result.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU MOVED IN THE LAST 5 YEARS?

89. FAVORITE RESTAURANT?
Depends on what for. I'm not a big restaurant person. I usually focus on the company I'm with rather than the food I'm eating. This usually makes the person I'm eating with upset because it causes me to take forever to finish a meal.

sadly not well, anymore. I played the piano for 7 years, and many instruments jr. high and high school, but it would take me quite awhile to catch back up.

relationships... come on, seriously.

I think I will always have to work at least part-time to keep my mind going. I would love to work from home as a graphic designer and photographer though.
