Hey everyone!! Who is excited for the weekend?!?! I am! I also cannot believe that I only have ONE WEEK of classes left!Seriously, where did law school go???? At least this isn’t like college where I wish I could go back and do it all again and again. No way. Haha.

So last week I got an e-mail from Kristina saying she’d nominated me for the Liebster Award! I’ve done a lot of these in the past so I don’t usually do them (out of courtesy for you all – repetition…) but it’s been a really long time since I’ve done one so I thought it would be fun today!

1. I went to summer camp in MN for 7 years (where I learned to sail) and then taught sailing at another MN camp one summer. I miss it so much!

I’m third from the left

2.  I buy a new Camelbak water bottle every 6 months. The top straw part always breaks… probably because I carry it around with my teeth.

3. I absolutely hate black licorice. There are very few foods/flavors that I dislike, but I hate black licorice with a passion.

4. I love fishing. I don’t know why, but I love it. I guess I started at a young age…

5. I haven’t slept through an entire night (aka more than 3-4 hours) since I was in High School. Apparently this isn’t normal?

6. My shoe size is 8. Just FYI.

7. I have never left the continent. The only countries I’ve traveled to are the Bahamas and the British Virgin Islands. I have, however, been to 30 states!

8. I went to the same school from when I was 2 until I graduated when I was 18, there were about 10-15 of us who made it through the whole time, a few of whom are some of my best friends from Kansas City!

9. If I’m on my computer, my g-mail is open. Almost always. Anyone else? I think I love to gchat too much…

10. I’m really bad at coming up with facts about myself. Seriously. This has taken me days of coming back to so I can fill it out.

11. Ella Enchanted was my absolute favorite book for several years growing up, although I have to say I was disappointed in the movie that came out a few years back… (obviously this was pre-Harry Potter).

Kristina’s 11 Questions:

1. What is your favorite relaxing activity?

Reading! I absolutely love to read when I have free time, although it’s not often in law school. I also love coloring… I bought some crayons a while back and when I’m really stressed I love to just doodle.

2. If you have one, what is your favorite go-to workout when you are stressed?

Running. Running. Running.

3. Favorite brand of coffee?

The Roasterie!!!!! I LOVE IT. I miss it…

4. What are your pet’s names?

NEVILLE. Named after Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter. I felt they had similar personalities…

5. How long have you been blogging?

1 year and 8.5 months. I feel like it’s been so much longer than that…

6. What is your favorite recipe to make at home?

No recipe is my favorite… I actually really don’t like recipes, I just make my own stuff up. Right now, however, I’m obsessed with my Chocolate Protein Oat Bran

7. What is your guilty pleasure?

Uuuuhh…. I don’t know? I don’t really feel “gulity” about anything? I do love reality TV though, like Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I don’t watch much reality tv though because I don’t have a television, unless the show is on HULU!

8. How do you motivate yourself to be active?

Because it makes me feel great! I loooove being active, I crave it! On the off day that I am feeling lazy (and don’t just make it a rest day…) I remind myself how much better I’ll feel once I’ve gotten my workout in!

9. Favorite artist to run/workout to?

Hmm. Blink 182 and Eminem for running. I have a few songs that really get me amped up (yes, I just said “amped up”).

10. Favorite vacation spot?

Oooo hard! I love traveling to new places! But my favorite repeat spot is Colorado Springs!

11. What is one of your long term goals?

Be happy. I think that’s all you can ever ask for.

Instead of picking new bloggers and asking questions, I want to ask you to answer any of these questions, or share an interesting/random fact!
