  1. 1. Favorite US destination : a tie between Chicago and Atlanta (so much cool stuff to do)
    2 Worst job was probably when I was a Physical Therapy tech at Shands Rehab, as I was not very well liked there, although I did learn alot.
    3. Favorite guilty pleasures are playing jeopardy every day, watching reality TV to make myself feel better, smoking cigars, and eating ice cream with sprinkles(my favorite food. I also actually really enjoy swearing (sorry mom!)
    4. Honestly never done anything weird to my face or hair, have shaved it ever since I was made fun of in middle school as my nickname was "squirrel head"
    5. My friends and family inspire me the most
    6. Not a giant salad fan, but I could always eat croutons.
    7. Don't wear much jewelery, but I have to say my Gator cufflinks my fiance gave me for our wedding.
    8. Don't have one particular go to song for a bad day, but some good ones that help are "Stuck in a moment you can't get out of" by U2, and Don Henley's "End of the Innocence"
    9. I have a strange affinity for military history, any useless trivia, and planning social events for myself and friends
    10. Favorite all time food (not just dessert) Ice Cream with Rainbow Sprinkles
    11. Dated a girl I met on myspace for a brief time, she luckily did look as pretty as her pictures, and was nice, but we just didn't have any chemistry.
