5. I feel that I am a good actress, but I don’t know where to audition for community theater here in the cities.

17. I feel that most people don’t believe me when I say I’m honest.
18. During my time at SNC – I never started ONE rumor. All rumors were blamed on me and there was nothing I could do about it but just listen to people yell at me.
19. Same thing happened in High School. Lisa Bowers used me as her rumor scapegoat.
20. I believe in astrology and I believe in tarot cards but probably not the way you think that I do.

35. When I was little, my brothers told me that if I didn’t want to remember scary dreams, I had to sleep right through them. They probably told me this to fuck with my mind, but ever since then I’ve tried not to wake myself up during nightmares. To this day I will actually tell myself to keep dreaming.
36. My parents’ first child, Louisa, died when she was a baby. I’ve been to her grave once that I remember and I am always haunted by the idea that my parents would trade in my life for hers if it were an option.
37. I enjoy smoking pot.
38. My first kiss was when I was in 4th grade. I was sleeping over at my friend Shannon’s house and her older brother and his friend were over. We played truth or dare and the friend had to kiss me. He was in the 5th grade. I think his name was Chris Stark or Star or something like that.
39. I don’t like Anne Rice or Steven King.
40. I started playing the clarinet in elementary school, switch to the bass clarinet in jr. high, then to the contra in high school. I actually think I was really good and it upset me how little emphasis my parents paid to band. I liked it a hell of a lot more than choir.

44. I have never, EVER in my life been skinny. Never.
45. I was suicidal for a while in 10th grade. I tried to slit my wrists but I couldn’t because my sense of self preservation is too strong. The worst feeling in the world is feeling like such a failure for not being able to kill yourself. I mean, really, thinking like that is FUCKED UP, but it’s how it goes.
46. I think that all girls should masturbate or at least know how.
47. When people tell me they’re really into S&M, I highly doubt it unless they tell me that they have toys that are more than just a whip and a pair of handcuffs.
48. I get annoyed when guys think I want to get in their pants when really all I want is to be friends. It makes everybody feel awkward.
49. My immune system kicks ASS.
50. In many of my dreams I am not myself. I dream that I’m other people but I’m THEM. It’s really odd and I rarely dream of people I know.
51. I don’t like beer and because of that I’ve tasted A LOT of beer.
52. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever get married.

55. I have never been to camp and I hold a deep resentment towards my brothers who did.

57. I pick at my scabs.
58. I know I’m not all that original and it drives me batshit crazy.
59. I remember almost every stupid thing I’ve ever done: lied to parents, broke something, was really mean to a kid, you name it. Sometimes they are replayed in my head and I feel like crap all over again. And these are things that happened YEARS ago.
60. I have an amazing sense of guilt and it’s actually NOT related to being a catholic.
61. My jealousy knows no bounds.
62. Hell hath no fury as Meg pissed off.
63. The only people to see me really angry are my brothers and my friend Sarah. I normally don’t get really angry because I do really mean and underhanded things when I get angry. Try not to push me too far.
