I was getting pretty good at writing blog posts there for a while … I’m going to attribute it to the fact that I was avoiding working on my thesis.

Speaking of – I PASSED MY DEFENSE! Woohoo! I’ll write a more substantial post later; I’m at my grandparents’ house in Tyler right now and am gathering stories to tell. And there are plenty.

81. I have donated my hair to Locks of Love one time.
82. I make a mean sweet potato souffle.
83. I have a massive fear of open heights (i.e. ferris wheels, cliffs, etc.).
84. I prefer silver jewelry to gold jewelry, though I have a really cool gold owl necklace.
85. I have a dopamine deficiency in my brain; if I take serotonin drugs I get more depressed. Yay Wellbutrin!
86. I retain memories by sound, primarily by music. Certain songs make me remember certain places. Stroke 9 for Scotland, Ray LaMontagne’s “Be Here Now” for Kenya, and so on and so forth.
87. I actually like Waco.
88. I’ve never been on a for real date … not for lack of wanting.
89. I just found out that I’m actually half Irish. Slainte!

71. I will judge you for your bad grammar.
72. I’ve seen Phantom of the Opera (live) more than any other musical.
73. Sometimes I wish I was famous just so I could have great clothes and be on a best-dressed list. I know it’s far-fetched.
74. I was in the hospital for a week in the 9th grade, and the doctors never figured out what was wrong with me.
75. I prefer milk chocolate to white chocolate, and dark chocolate to milk chocolate. But I still love all of them.
76. I was in Gifted and Talented through high school.
77. The number 2 is my favorite number to write. The number 8 is my least favorite.
78. My birthday is in the exact middle of the year (June 30).
79. I remember when the Berlin wall fell.
80. I don’t particularly like American Literature. I love British Literature.
