I love my school, but I almost went to: Nowhere, I have always wanted to go to UNC. When I received my acceptance letter I knew there was no way I could turn it down to go anywhere else.

My best physical feature is: My Smile.

If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be: Sweet Home Alabama

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Hip Hop and Country

The shows I DVR/TiVo are: Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girls, and Desperate Housewives

My favorite Web Sites are: Facebook, and CW to catch up on my favorite shows

My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: I don't Twitter/Tweet.

My worst habit is: I block everything out when I'm texting.

My gameday superstitions are: Same routine before every game and listening to the same playlist of songs

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: To speak Spanish fluently.

These three things top my bucket list: I want to live in NYC for a year, go skydiving and travel the world

I'd want my last meal to be: Filet mignon, mac 'n' cheese, my mom's spaghetti, mashed potatoes, my grandma's peanut butter delight cookies, and McDonald's sweet tea

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: Falling on my head during a timeout at the Notre Dame Football game my sophomore year

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: Cell phone, food and my precious dog named Sandy

My favorite pro sports teams are: Carolina Panthers and New York Yankees

My one guilty pleasure is: McDonald's double cheeseburger, large fries and a large sweet tea

My celebrity crush is: Penn Badgley

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: My paw paw Dean (who passed away when I was very young, so I would like to tell him all about my life now), Oprah Winfrey, John F. Kennedy, Charles Darwin and Patrick Dempsey

My friends would be surprised to know that I: love putting together jigsaw puzzles

The next risk I want to take is: Finishing undergrad and going off to graduate school to get a master's degree in Psychology

The worst date I've ever been on was: I went out to eat with my boyfriend of 1 years and he decided to fill out a card for me for some contest. After a couple minutes, he handed me the card and said "You fill out the rest." Needless to say he had forgotten my birthday, which is why he gave me the card when that question came up.
