(My best friend and I in our sumo suits!)
2. I used to play roller derby.
I played for about half the year last year, and it was so much fun! I miss it a lot, but there started to be a lot of drama, and I just don't like drama one bit so I quit. Maybe I'll start up again one day. I still love skating so much. I skate nearly every day when the weather permits it!
(Oh, another fun fact.. the track that my friend and I (on the right) are on was the same exact track used in the movie Whip It with Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore... Pretty cool, huh?)
3. I am a big prankster.
I LOVE to pull pranks on people. For Christmas last year, I gave my sister a fake scratch off ticket for $10,000. She totally bought it, and cried. Yeah, I felt pretty bad about that one, but it was still funny. Hmm, my mom gets a lot of pranks pulled on her. I've put blood oranges in her bag of regular oranges and she freaked out. My mom also runs a home daycare, so after all the daycare kids left, I put a fake turd on the toilet seat and waited for her to find it. Now that prank was just priceless!!
4. I used to show sheep in the FFA.
Yes, sheep. I have had ten different sheep all throughout high school. I was very active in my Future Farmer's of America chapter. I even served as an officer one year. I really miss having sheep! I raised most of them from the time they were born, and they are SO cute as babies! FFA was a great experience, and I loved every minute of it.

5. I am a total homebody.
I would rather stay home than do pretty much anything. I am a complete invert. Some people think it's weird that I love to stay home and read or watch movies than go out and party, but that's just who I am.
6. My dad and I restored a 68' Camaro.
This car was a big pile of rust when we got it, but we worked hard, and this car is our baby now! Internet, meet Serenity!
7. I've never had a Valentine or New Year's Eve kiss.
and I'm a week shy of turning 23, but I couldn't care less. Boys have cooties as far as I'm concerned!
8. I've lost over 50 lbs two different times in my life.
(This is a before and after picture from the last time! I've kept the weight off for two years now, and plan on keeping it off until the day I die!)
9. I survived the two world's largest tornadoes EVER last year.
The first one was in May, and my dad and I were just getting out of the Warren theatre in Moore, OK from watching Star Trek: Into Darkness about ten minutes before it hit that theatre. We literally were just miles away from it, racing home. We could see the tornado through the windshield. I thought it was the scariest moment of my entire life at the time.
(This is the theatre we had just left minutes before after the tornado hit.)
Then, a few weeks later, I was stood corrected. The World's Biggest Tornado Ever, which was more than double the size of the tornado they had just deemed the same, was on a fast track straight to my house. It kept switching directions, and at one point in the evening, it was planned to go just south of my house so we decided to stay home, even though we don't have a shelter (and houses in Oklahoma don't have basements, either). At this point, I was extremely drunk, and here's a picture to prove it with the storm directly behind us.

Then, the monster switched back on course to my house, ripping up everything in sight. Imagine tornado sirens constantly screaming and then a distant rumbling in the background. It almost sounds like thunder, but it never ends. That's the sound of a tornado barreling down on you. We loaded up a few meager belongings, and our pets, and drove south. It was absolutely the most terrifying night of my life. Tornadoes started dropping from the sky all around us so fast that the meteorologists couldn't keep up. Stuff was flying through the air in front of us, all kinds of debris. I couldn't even look out the window, because I was bawling. We all thought we would have nothing left to come home to. No house to call home anymore. We survived though, and I have never felt more relieved than the moment we turned on our street and saw our house still standing. We had lucked out. Turns out, the main tornado of the night had lifted just a few miles from our house, and then dropped back down after it passed over. Crazy, huh? Our guardian angels were definitely watching us both those nights.
(This is a picture of the track of the tornado. My house is exactly where it says Yukon.)
10. I am very artistic.
But I don't really tell anyone about it. Most of the people that know me would be surprised to learn this about me. I love to paint and draw.
(This is a pair of Toms I painted!)
(This is a portrait of my best friends on their wedding day. I drew it for their gift.)
