Day Two - Nine Things About Yourself
1. In the last two and a half months, I have gone from not knowing anything about
figure skating (and not particularly caring) to becoming the Skate Canada
encyclopedia. While this is undoubtedly a ridiculous achievement (if you can even
call it that) I am proud of myself.
2. I am blessed enough to have five wonderful cousins who I consider to be my
brothers and sisters (and the brother that I actually have) and whom I could not live
without. We just lost our grandma/great-grandma and we couldn't have made it through
without each other's support. So as not to further upset our grieving parents, we
went to each other and it was amazing.
3. I am a voracious reader and will read anything and everything. If I see a book
that looks good, I have to buy it, regarldess of the cost or whether or not I've even
heard about it before. As it stands, I am waiting to receive a certain biography for
Christmas, although it comes out on November 1st and, if you preordered it in my
area, you could get it today. My parents don't allow me to spend my money on books
about people for some reason.
4. With the exception of a month-long infatuation that sizzled and ended in an
argument, I have been single since the beginning of eighth grade for one reason and
one reason only: my best friend. Figure it out yourself.
5. I do cardio work out every day; Irish dance, sit-ups, up-downs (message if you
want to know what those are; they're not the same as football ones), an aerobic
routine and/or three-kilometre jog. Well, at least I try to do at least two of them
every day. However, I never run and dance on the same day.
6. I think I have Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome and I'm trying to convince
my mom to get my tested for it because it is just agony on my legs, but she thinks
I'm being a hypochondriac.
7. I have a favourite everything, which I actually spend time thinking of.

8. My ninth grade English teacher changed my life. I firmly believe this. He
changed the way I think, the way I read, the way I write, the way I look at people,
and completely about-faced the career path I plan to follow. I will thank him every
9. My aunt makes the best pumpkin cheesecake in the world. No big deal or
