Cheerleader of the Week

kelsey-cheerleader-600Hometown: Tualatin, Oregon

College: University of Oregon

Major: Interior Architecture

GALLERY: See more pictures of Kelsey.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: Am a huge nerd! I like to read books the size of dictionaries- I blame it on reading the Harry Potter series almost every summer of my childhood. I am currently on the fifth book in George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones.

My favorite websites/blogs: I love browsing Pinterest, listening to Pandora, geeking out on Houzz or Dwell over current architecture trends, or socializing on Facebook.

The top item on my bucket list: 

1) Going to Italy: crossing that one off this summer, I will be studying abroad in Europe and am planning on traveling around before coming back to the states!

2) Riding in a hot air balloon: what better way to squish my fear of heights?

3) Eating escargot- I’ve tried anything from sea urchin to venison, so I am not shy about trying new food!

My celebrity crush: Gerard Butler. “300”, “P.S. I Love You”, Scottish accent, dark hair and blue eyes… need I say more?

If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: Country music. It reminds me of laying in the sunshine, camping at Wikiup Reservoir, or laying out by the pool. Everyone knows that Oregon can be quite rainy so I throw on a little Luke Bryan or Jason Aldean and it always puts me in a good mood. Besides country, I am a huge fan of Mumford and Sons. I think they would be a blast to see in concert.

My one guilty pleasure: I always stock up on dark chocolate. It is a great little dessert or a pick-me-upper if I am having a rough day!

The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game: The T-shirt gun wasn’t working and the marketing team asked me to throw the t-shirts up into the crowd over the large wall up to the student section during a time-out in a football game. However, they didn’t realize that I might have been the worst person to pick for the job. Every shirt that I threw slammed straight into the wall and the students in the first rows were giving me looks like, “really?”

Person I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead): I would love to grab dinner with my older brother, Brian. He has always been a huge role model to me. After going to school at USC, (ick!) ;) moving to Texas, Haiti, and then taking a one-way ticket to travel around Southeast Asia, he and I don’t get that many opportunities to get dinner or hang out. He is now the COO of a custom tailored suit company, Tailored Republic, and is doing awesome things down in Southern California -- still miss him! In addition, I would love to get dinner with my best friend since 3rd grade, Courtney. She goes to Stanford and I don’t get to see her as often as I would like. Finally, my grandpa Luscombe passed away when I was young. I would love to grab dinner with him and get to know him better

My worst date: I went on a date in high school with a guy my age. I made the mistake of telling him that I had never been kissed before when he asked, so he took that as an invitation. While watching a James Bond movie, the characters started having an intense beach make-out sesh and my date aggressively turns my head and tries to stick his tongue in my mouth in the middle of the theater. I never went on another date with him.

If I had to watch one movie or TV show over and over, it would be: I love watching “How I Met Your Mother” because you don’t necessarily have to watch the shows in order. It is also entertaining and funny, and is only 30 minutes long, so I am not glued to the TV forever.

My worst habit: Picking my nails! It’s has been a stress habit ever since I was a little girl- I’m confident one day I will break the habit and have awesome nails again. ;)

The talent I’d most like to have: Playing an instrument, such as the piano. Because I was so busy with sports and dancing when I was younger I never got the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument. I would love to learn how to play a couple songs on the piano.  

My favorite professional team: Being from Portland, my favorite professional sports team has always been the Blazers. I was a Junior Blazer Dancer in middle school, and have attended the games ever since I was little. However, I have recently become a huge Colorado Rockies baseball fan, as my boyfriend is now a pitcher on one of the farm teams after playing for Oregon.

My favorite app: My favorite phone app is Instagram. It’s a refreshing social media tool different from Facebook or Twitter. I like posting goofy pictures with friends and family, of my dog Maysie, or acting like I am a photographer taking landscape or yummy food pictures.

My favorite people to follow on Twitter: Although I don’t have a Twitter, I would probably follow all of my good friends, and any funny celebrities such a Will Farrell, Daniel Tosh, or I have even heard the fictional Voldemort from Harry Potter is really entertaining. :p

I’d want my last meal to be: If I could eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be blueberries. Besides blueberries at my last meal, I would love to have my mom’s homemade potstickers -- she is an awesome cook!
