  1. Even though I am an aspiring landscape architect, I can’t keep a plant alive. They all perish in my care.
  2. My first major at Oklahoma State was actually architecture.
  3. I proudly know every single word to the movie “Dumb and Dumber”
  4. According to Pottermore, I am a Gryffindor.
  5. I am the oldest of five children.
  6. My favorite holiday is the Fourth of July. I love fireworks!
  7. Even though I grew up minutes from one of Oklahoma’s largest casinos and major tourist attractions, I hate gambling. Since I turned 18, I’ve only reluctantly spent $40 at the casino.
  8. At one point, I owned over 20 pounds of Legos!
  9. My favorite flavor of ice cream is vanilla, regardless of how boring it sounds.
  10. I’ve come extremely close to drowning three separate times but I still love being in the water.
