25 Random Things About Me

8. I spent two weeks living in the dorms at the University of Tampa when I decided I hated living there and especially disliked my roommate, so I moved home.

9. My cousin and I are five years apart and have always been close, she's much more like a sister than a cousin. Sometimes we actually forget that we're not sisters. When she got married I called her husband my brother-in-law and had no idea that was not right.
