I love my school, but I almost went to:
Nowhere else! I've been a Tar Heel since birth!
My best physical feature is:
If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of:
The Goo Goo Dolls and Third Eye Blind.
My worst habit is:
Picking wedgies in public.
My gameday superstitions are:
I always make sure to wave at my family and take pictures with Mom before pre-game and I usually check my earrings about fifty-million times to make sure they're still in.
I'd love to trade places for a day with:
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is:
Acing tests without studying, or being able to sing well -- Then I'd want to be on Broadway.
These three things top my bucket list:
Becoming fluent in Spanish, traveling everywhere and flying down from the castle as Tinkerbell at Disney World.
I'd want my last meal to be:
Ssteak, salmon, mac and cheese, quesadilla with black beans, carrots with ranch and one of those cookie sandwiches with tons of icing stuffed in the middle. And a water. I eat a lot!
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is:
I've been really lucky so far considering I am known for my ability to trip over almost anything, although something unfortunate will probably happen at my next game thanks to this question!
Three things I'd take to a desert island are:
Good food, Harry Potter 7 and my little brother, Drew!
My favorite sport and professional sports teams are:
Soccer is my favorite, but I definitely love Carolina basketball. Arsenal FC!
My one guilty pleasure is:
Quoting The Office and stalking Harry Potter Web sites.
My celebrity crush is:
James Marsden, Russell Crowe and Rodrigo Santoro are all gorgeous.
Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are:
(In no specific order) J.K. Rowling, Ellen DeGeneres, my granddad on my mom's side since I never got to meet him, Michael Scott and Steven Spielberg.
My friends would be surprised to know that I:
Am too nervous to dance in clubs, but I never get nervous dancing at Carolina games or other performances.
The next risk I want to take is:
Skydiving with my Dad.
The reality show I'd do best on is:
So You Think You Can Dance.
The worst date I've ever been on was:
My then-boyfriend didn't take me out anywhere on Valentine's Day one year, so I guess the lack of a date was probably the worst.
