I love my school, but I almost went to: North Dakota State University... I made the right choice.

My best physical feature is: My stomach

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be: Remember the Titans

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Taylor Swift, Dashboard Confessional, Dierks Bentley, The Fray and Something Corporate

My worst habit is: Not getting enough sleep! I always have too much to do in one day.

My gameday superstitions are: I always have to get ready in the exact same order each day before a game.

I'd love to trade places for a day with: Michael Phelps

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: I would like to be able to play a musical instrument, maybe the guitar!

These three things top my bucket list: I would like to swim with sharks, visit Greece, and have a family.

I'd want my last meal to be: A huge steak with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and a piece of cheesecake for dessert.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: One year we had halter top uniforms and at a football game my top came unbuttoned and fell down!

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My iPod, a swimsuit (so I can get a good tan) and my sister.

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: My favorite sport to watch is hockey and my favorite professional sports team would have to be the Chicago Bulls (I was born in Chicago).

My one guilty pleasure is: CANDY -- any kind! Especially anything chocolate.

My celebrity crush is: Orlando Bloom

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: George Washington, Jesus, my Grandpa who I never got to meet, Michael Jordan and Dane Cook.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: I am deathly afraid of speaking in front of a group of people.

The next risk I want to take is: Getting a real job

The reality show I'd do best on is: Fear Factor, I would eat anything!

The worst date I've ever been on was: I was out to dinner with a guy I had been seeing for a while when his girlfriend, who he was currently dating, walked up to our table. I had no idea he had a girlfriend! I'll just say it didn't end good!
