About Me

I’m not exactly sure what should be put here, so I’ll go with that 25 Random Things list from Facebook for the time being: 

1. If I honestly had to answer the “if you could do anything” question, I think it’d be movie director.

2. I idolize Bruce Springsteen…and strongly feel that he is and always will be the best rock artist of all time. I believed this long before it recently became hip to start liking him again.

3. At this time, U2 is the only remaining musical group I feel I absolutely need to see live before I die (and I’m seeing them in September!).

4. I would love to own a house on the lake some day, but I have no desire to ever see The Lake House.

5. Zach Galifianakis perfectly channels my sense of humor.

6. I struggle to understand how certain guys are completely fine not liking sports. I respect their decision, but honestly can’t comprehend how since it’s been such a huge part of my life growing up.

7. Playing tip-it in Knoxville was my favorite “childhood” activity. 

8. I could eat multiple boxes of Philly Swirls in one sitting without hestitating.

9. My least favorite personal quality is that “the grass is always greener”, but I’m trying to stop thinking that way.

10. Mi madre, in addition to being the best mom anyone could ask for and one of my best friends, makes the best beef jerky known to man.

11. Although I never planned on playing entering college, I now cannot imagine not being a part of Darkside for my four years at UNC.

12. The following Format lyric describes my social life in a nutshell: “The night life is just not for me, because all you really need are a few good friends.”

13. I’m still disappointed that Arrested Development, Freaks & Greeks, and Stella got cancelled.

14. I’ve never been a big recreational reader (even though I really want to be). However, it took me a solid three weeks of heavy reading during my European trip to tackle Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, but I’m glad I took the time to do so.

15. I’ve lived in 8 states (not an army brat), and I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to experience so many different places growing up. 

16. I love making spontaneous Icee trips to the nearest convenience store.

17. I would much rather be cold than too hot, because you can always put on another layer. This is the main reason I have still not turned on my heat this winter, and I don’t plan on it. 

18. I think my brother and sister are two of the coolest people I know…for completely different reasons.

19. I’ll love playing any sport that involves scoring using another object, but I hate running and jogging for the sake of running or jogging. Also, the first part of the statement honestly wasn’t meant to sound dirty…

20. I might be the most competitive person I know. Those closest to me hate this about me, and anyone that doesn’t know me well is usually surprised when they hear this.

21. If there was a nectar of the gods, it would be IBC Creme Soda.

22. I want to live more “in the moment” instead of constantly thinking about the future. I don’t want to wake up one day and realize most of my life has passed without enjoying it enough. 

23. As a kid, I romanticized everything.  I don’t like that I’ve become more cynical as I’ve gotten older.

24. I’d much rather spend an evening playing cards or board games with a close group of friends than going out to do something.

25. Christina constantly finds new ways to prove that she is by far “the better half” of the relationship, even if she would never admit that herself.
