- I watch a lot of things on Netflix, quite frequently even random documentaries. (I'm watching Super Size Me right now.)
- My family is a huge part of my life. My parents are divorced, but they get along well and we all go on vacations together.
- Bad grammar/spelling in text messages is one of my biggest pet peeves.
- Contrary to popular belief, I've only eaten two of my own cupcakes ever. (A Snickerdoodle & a Red Velvet)
- I'm studying Baking & Patisserre at Le Cordon Bleu and it's been the biggest leap of faith I've ever taken.
- I own six pairs of Converse! They're my favorite shoes by far and I'd wear them everyday if I could and if I didn't love showing off my painted toes.
- When I'm at my house, I live in Victoria's Secret Yoga Pants. They're the most comfortable things ever.
- I was born and raised in Long Island, NY. When I moved to Arizona, all the kids at school made me say words like coffee, corner, and water over and over because of my accent.
- I absolutely hate scary thrill rides such as rollercoasters. I've never even been on Disneyland's Splash Mountain.
- I'm one of the pickiest eaters you'll ever meet and I'm in culinary school. I don't like fruit, seafood, most Mexican food, hamburgers, sandwiches and much more. No, I'm not a vegetarian. I'm scared for the day I have to try food I don't want to in front of everyone in class.
- I'm not a morning person at all. I hate waking up early. I can barely function and my first class everyday is at 7 am and I live 30 minutes away. It's not fun for me in the least bit.
- I do not like driving at night or in traffic. If I have to by myself, I'll always find someone to call to keep me company.
- I've posted over 10,000 tweets since I got Twitter in May 2008. For some reason, I think I'm interesting enough to post all the time! HA.
- I just started culinary school and I'm already getting excited for my 12 week externship next year!!
- I check my youtube subscriptions constantly, so I'm always up to date on my very favorite beauty gurus.
- All of my notes, book tabs, flash cards, and pen ink colors are color coordinated by type and subject.
- I had never peeled any vegetables before Wednesday during Culinary class.
- I've had my Arizona Real Estate License since last May with the support of my dad and stepmom who have been in the top 1% of Real Estate agents in Arizona for over ten years.
- I would definitely define myself as stubborn, passionate, and ambitious.
- I don't go a day without lots of praying and reading the Bible. I rarely miss a Sunday afternoon at church! I love God and am learning every day how to let him guide me completely.
- I know exactly how much a Large Coke is at McDonald's, tax and all.
- I frequently flirt with cashiers or store workers. Last week this benefited me when I got free eggs and multiple packages of butter. It's embarrassing, but oh well.
- The Beatles are my absolute favorite band. I was introduced to them against my will when I began dating Casey, freshman year. He burned me about 5 CD's for my birthday and I've been obsessed ever since. I currently have 300+ Beatles songs on my iTouch, but my favorite two haven't ever changed. ("Blackbird" & "In My Life")
- My mom used to blow dry my hair up until age 18. I hated it because I was so lazy, but she loved it. :)
- I'm extremely, disgustingly sensitive. I'm really emotional especially when talking about my love life. I've been in two long term relationships, both ending abruptly exactly two years apart. I know I should be cynical of true love, but I still believe it's out there for me.

I've been semi absent this week, due to what else, school. Wow, it's so weird to type that. Tomorrow, you'll be getting a Culinary Conversations post about how I survived my first week in culinary school. But today I saw that Malori posted a 25 things about herself and considering I haven't done any real posts this week, this one looked like fun!!
