I love my school, but I almost went to: Nowhere! I knew I wanted to go to the University of Texas and represent the Texas Longhorns. My dream forced me to keep my grades up in high school so that I was sure to be admitted.
My best physical feature is: Probably my eyes. The color is an exact replica of my dad's eyes.
If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be:The Notebook.
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Texas country. (i.e. Brantley Gilbert, Randy Rogers, Roger Creager, Eli Young, etc.)
The shows I DVR/TiVo are:Grey's Anatomy and Chopped, from the Food Network
My favorite Web sites are: ESPN, CNN, and Facebook.
My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: ... I do not have a Twitter right now. Perhaps I will set one up in the near future.
My worst habit is: Not sleeping as much as I should.
My gameday superstitions are: I am not very superstitious, but I do wear the same white ribbon for each game. I also wear an extra orange rubber band on my wrist.
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Something musical. I played the flute and was in the choir in middle school, but somehow lost all musical talent since then.
These three things top my bucket list are: In no particular order, they are: compete in a triathalon, raise a family, and travel/volunteer as a doctor.
I'd want my last meal to be: Spicy tuna sushi!
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: During a basketball game, I ran to tumble across the basketball court to start our timeout performance. The buzzer to end the timeout went off as I was beginning my tumbling pass.
Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My cell phone, my running shoes, and family pictures.
My favorite pro sports teams are: the Houston Texans! (We just had our first winning season!)
My one guilty pleasure is: rollerblading.
My celebrity crush is: Mark Sanchez.
Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Larry King, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Denton Cooley, Colin Powell and James Cameron.
My friends would be surprised to know that I: Broke both of my arms at the same time when I was 10 years old.
The next risk I want to take is: Medical school.
The worst date I've ever been on was: I don't have a "worst date," but I am single, so I guess it is a possibility in the near future.
