I am obsessed with Star Wars.

Seriously, more than a normal 25 year old girl should be. I watched the marathon of all 7 movies that day that The Force Awakens was released. We were in the cinema from 3:30am to 9:30pm – yeah, A LONG TIME.

I’ve visited 14 countries.

 I totally suffer from wanderlust. My favorite so far is definitely Ireland. It’s gorgeous and the people are so friendly. I’ve been there twice because me and my mom are so obsessed with it. I plan to visit a whole lot more countries so if you don’t mind having a couch surfer then please let me know!

I was on my high school drill team.

For those of you who aren’t from the Southern US, it’s a dance team. We perform during halftime at football games and compete at dance competitions. Picture short skirts, red lipstick, white boots, and high kicks.

I lived in Prague for a year.

I was teaching English there to children and adults. Yeah, this is a real picture I took of it from my favorite spot in the city, Reigrovy Sady. It’s park that looks out over Old Town with a beer garden that you can purchase a pint of beer for about a $1. Seriously, it’s that cheap!

I’m double jointed in my knees, hips, elbows, and ankles.

I can even pop my hips in and out of joint. I’m a strange bird.

I absolutely love storms.

We are actually in the middle of one right now and I’m loving it. It’s supposed to thunderstorm for the next 3 days here and I couldn’t be more excited. Great reading weather!

I have never broken a bone in my body.

However, when I was 10 I did jump on my brother’s leg and break it. It wasn’t my fault though! We were at the lake and jumping off the top of a barge when it happened. He was under the water and instead of moving out of the way, he just stayed where he was so when I checked before I dove in, no one was there. Except he was. Under water where no one could see him. It’s his own fault. Yet, he’s 22 years old now and still blames it on me.

I just started this book yesterday and so far it’s interesting but I’m not really sure where it’s headed. I’ve heard so many great things about it so I hope that it lives up to the hype. As y’all have realized, contemporary isn’t my favorite genre but I’m trying to get into it more. Here’s hoping that I enjoy this one!

“Because how could he have done this?

How could he have chosen to leave me here all alone?”

Giveaway Time!

Hello to all of you lovely people!

I’ve come into contact with so many great people and it has made this become so much more rewarding than I thought it ever would be.

Don’t worry, if you only follow me on here, you can still win as I will list that as one entry. 🙂
