I am a huge movie buff.
I'm always excited to see the latest hit in theaters, but also love sitting down with a bowl of popcorn to watch a classic. I love romantic comedies, but also enjoy a good animated movie every now and again.
Beauty and the Beast
This was my favorite movie as a child.
When Harry met Sally . . .
This is my favorite movie as of right now.

This is my friends and I on Homecoming night.
This is my friends response to, "Let's take a group picture," at my sixteenth birthday party.
This is my friends and I at Church Camp, hanging off a golf cart.
Freshman year, I was still new to the district.
And, naturally, I was worried about making new friends. Then, after taking a class called Debate and Tournament Forensics, I emerged with a host of crazy friends and an activity to keep me busy for all of high school.
"Creativity is intelligence having fun." - Albert Einstein
"Why would you spend your weekends doing that?"
Because I enjoy it, and, you know, trophies.
"Forensics? Like ..."
No, not like dead bodies.
"You do WHAT?"
I am aware that we sound crazy, and yes, we do talk to walls.

"It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together." - Unknown
I decided my career in fifth grade.
One day, a counselor came to my class, to talk about careers. He handed out sheets of paper, and told us to write down what we wanted to be when we grew up. As my classmates wrote jobs like, "Vet," and, "Firefighter," I thought about the question. Then, I finally scrawled out, "Teacher." My decision hasn't changed since.
