Instruments you play: I played the clarinet when I was younger. I also took guitar lessons, and I'm hoping to brush up on my skills (or lack there of) soon.

Live: I live in Georgia, but I stay in the midwest.

Overnight hospital stays: None...thank goodness.
Pet peeves: When people smack on their gum! Ugh. Oh and when people disrespect books.
Quote from a movie or tv show: "I've always felt out of step. Like literally stumbling through my life. I never felt normal. Because I'm not normal. I don't want to be."
Right or Lefty: I'm a righty...but I use my left hand sometimes too.

Time you wake up: 6:45 AM on days I have to work...the other days, just whenever I wake up.
Underwear: From Target.
Vegetable you hate: English peas...gag.
What makes you run late: Deciding I hate my outfit, or watching too much tv while getting ready.
X-Rays You've Had: What have I not had an xray on? My foot, ankle, arm, chest cavity, back, head...you name it I've had it.
Yummy food you make: I think I'm a pretty good cook. I make some killer Italian food...homemade sauce is a must.
