  1. 1.
    Introvert/extrovert: Introvert
    But I've become much more comfortable around people. I've somehow given birth to two extroverts. They have taught me a lot. And I get a kick over how excited they get when they are around lots of people.

    Scars: Lots of them. My skin easily scars.
    But I don't mind them.
  3. 3.
    What religion was I raised with: Southern Baptist in theory but my parents rarely took me to church.
    But when I did go, I hated it. It was a lot of fire and brimstone, not a whole lot about love, and forgiveness.
  4. 4.
    What religion am I now: Episcopalian! Which you would think is crazy, if you had known me 4 years ago.

    School year that was the worst: 7th-12 really
