101 things about me.

2. Daisies are my favorite flowers... but lilies, tulips and roses are next on the list.

3. I'm allergic to flowers.
4. I often look at my pictures from Capernwray to see what I was doing a year ago on that particular day.

6. I hate running into people from High School.
7. I've found it difficult to enter into deep worship since Capernwray. I felt freedom there like I've never felt anywhere else.

9. There's been so much talk about dating this semester that I am sick of it... so sick of it that it does not even sound appealing anymore.
10. I like to lay on the ground and stare at the stars.
11. I saw my first shooting star this year.

13. I've been toying with piercing my nose for quite a while.
14. I really like Frank Sinatra.

27. Adventures in Odyssey is still one of my favorite things.
28. If I had to pick one book to read 5 times, I would pick "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis. It's my favorite.
29. I don't understand why most people don't love "The Scarlet Letter."

94. I really like breathing into a mug and making my glasses fog up.
95. I don't think I could wear contacts because I hate the idea of touching my eyes.

97. I still look for shapes in the clouds.
98. My preferred scent is Vanilla.
99. Gum. I like it... but hate (and usually don't) to spend money on it.
100. I wait for movies to go to the $2 theater.
