1. I was born on New Year’s Eve. I was three weeks early and weighed just over five pounds.
  2. I started playing piano when I was five and the violin when I was in fourth grade.
  3. I don’t currently have a piano and I miss it every single day. I would watch far less TV if I had a piano.
  4. In high school I was part of a touring orchestra. We visited Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and the Cook Islands.
  5. I had my first beer on the trip. My friend and I bought a Fosters and split it. Well, what was left of it. After being carried in her backpack all day it basically exploded when we opened it.
  6. In addition to that trip, I’ve been to 12 other countries.
  7. I started dancing when I was three and was in toe shoes by nine.
  8. I switched from classical ballet to modern dance when I was 14. It completely changed my life.
  9. My first boyfriend was in preschool. His name was Andrew and he wore Burt and Ernie slippers.
  10. He came to my birthday party and brought me a Jem rocker Barbie.
  11. I am awesome at Friend’s trivia. My friends will never play with me because I always win.
  12. Two coworkers have challenged me to a game, but we’ve yet to play.
  13. If I never had to worry about weight, I would eat grilled cheese sandwiches every day.
  14. Washed down by a milkshake.
  15. My first real kiss was in the 8th grade. He kissed me in the hallway after last period and a few seconds into it I felt a tap on my shoulder. I opened my eyes and was face to face with the vice principal. He threatened us with detention if we didn’t leave right away. It took me almost a whole week to kiss him again.
  16. Incidentally, he broke up with me the day of our 8th grade picnic.
  17. No matter how hard I try, I can’t control clutter. I make piles of thing…clothes, dishes, magazines…but it takes me forever to actually put them away.
  18. Once in elementary school my friend and I decided to play “moving to California”. We moved every single thing in my room (except the bed) to one side of the room.
  19. Then we sprinkled baby powder over everything to pretend it had snowed.
  20. When we got in trouble, she threw a tantrum and didn’t help me clean up.

  28. Much like in a hospital, those who wore the white coats (photo techs) were respected more.
  29. I accidentally stole an eyeliner when I worked there. I was stocking and put it in my smock while I did something else. I didn’t realize until I got home that I had left the store with it.

  31. I secretly wish I could rap.
  32. It all started with a Jay-Z CD a friend gave me in high school.
  33. I know all the lyrics to Ludacris’ “Money Maker”. I’m oddly proud of that.
  34. When I was 18 I was prepared to go to college as a dance major.
  35. Even though I got in, I couldn’t afford my first choice school. The school I went to didn’t have a dance major so I chose journalism instead.
  36. Now I’m a publicist. I think it was a wise choice.
  37. My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She’s been cancer free for nearly five years, but I still worry every day it will return.
  38. As cliche as it sounds, she is my hero and the strongest woman I know.
  39. I’ve always been a long-term relationship person. I dated my high school boyfriend for four years and just passed the five year mark with Michael.

  42. I have a tiny scar next to my eye from when I was bit by a dog as a child.
  43. Her collar got tangled in my overalls and she got scared. If she had bit just an eight of an inch over, she would have gotten my eyeball.

  45. Including an awful self-coloring mistake that left it a weird shade of gold.
  46. My first concert was Matchbox 20.
  47. I caught the guitar pick that was thrown into the audience, but a big girl stole it from me.
  48. My friend jumped on her back and yelled at her to give it back to me.
  49. She didn’t.
  50. I can’t get on board with Amy Winehouse. I’m sorry, I just can’t.
  51. Growing up, both my mom and dad and hair down to their waists. I was a hippy baby that wore tie-dye and bandannas.
