I love my school, but I almost went to: Arizona State University: I have family that lives in Scottsdale, Arizona and it is absolutely beautiful there. I wouldn't change the way my life has planned out now for the world. I love the University of Illinois, it's so diverse, full of multiple opportunities for education and life experiences and a gorgeous environment.
My best physical feature are: My feet. I get pedicures probably every two weeks because I need them from wearing 4 inch heels at work all day and from running so much.
If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be: At one time, I did have Step Brothers in my DVD player for about two months. I would watch it when I came back from Green Street with my friends and during finals week. It was something I would fall asleep to while watching, as well as motivation to study. Ha, that's a weird combination, I know.
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: I can't really answer that. I listen to such a variety of music. It really depends on the mood I'm in I guess. Even when I work out I will be jamming out or listening to something very calm.
The shows I DVR/TiVo are: College Football (Illini), The Office, Family Guy, Project Runway, Robot Chicken, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and America's Next Top Model.
My favorite Web Sites are: Google.com and Mapquest.com.
My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: I never got into the Twitter thing.
My worst habit is: Procrastination.
My gameday superstitions are: I don't really have any. I'm pretty laid back. I make sure that I go to bed at a descent time the night before the game.
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Playing the piano.
These three things top my bucket list: are to travel all over the world so I can scuba dive, skydive, climb a mountain, go horse riding, take a hot-air balloon ride, parachute jump, watch the sun set and rise, etc., become a successful woman in my career and fall in love.
I'd want my last meal to be: Most likely something Italian.
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: I don't really get embarrassed, but it wasn't that enjoyable when we were doing rewind j-ups and my skirt went above my bloomers and I couldn't put it down until after I made a complete 360 so the crowd could see my butt. The whole team was joking with me asking me where I got those thong bloomers. Maybe I need a larger size?
Three things I'd take to a desert island are: The first thing would be an unlimited supply of food because I eat a lot. The second would be a friend to help me with directions, because we all know that I would never find my way back alone. I'm creative, so we'll create some contraption to get back home. The last one would be necessities to insure that I still have good hygiene.
My favorite pro sports teams are: Dallas Cowboys, Cubs, Cardinals, White Sox...Honestly, I don't really care. It mainly depends on who I'm around at the time and who they like. I love playing any type of sport in general because I'm an athletic girl. However, watching them was never a huge thing in my family, besides following up with the Illini.
My one guilty pleasure is: eating way too much. If you knew what I ate in a day, you would think that I was obese. I absolutely love all kinds of food.
My celebrity crush is: Well, I'm a fan of athletic guys, so maybe Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn. Ha, I honestly just googled athletes and chose one.
Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Lance Armstrong, President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Cash.
My friends would be surprised to know is that I: absolutely hate scary movies. The last time I watched one I had to cuddle with my roommate because I couldn't get to sleep. They freak me out. As they say, to each their own.
The next risk I want to take is: graduate school.
The worst date I've ever been on was: Long story short, I ended up paying for the meal. Not cool boys! I mean, I definitely believe that in a relationship the girl should pay too, but not the first date.
