  2. I took dance classes (Jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, etc) for over 8 years and yet I'm still lacking in the rhythem department :/
  3. Christmas is absolutely my favorite holiday ever! I even start listening to Christmas music on November 1st and watch all of the cheesy Lifetime Christmas movies.
