  20. I got my love of sci-fi and my sense of humor from my dad! I grew up watching Star Trek with him and he’s absolutely the best  dad a girl could ask for. When I got to meet Sir Patrick Stewart a few years ago, I told him I grew up watching him with my dad, and he told me he was honored to be part of those memories. <3 
  21. My mom always encouraged my love of reading. When I was a kid, she read books to us frequently.

  22. My favorite book is A Swiftly Tilting Planet, the 3rd book in Madeline L’Engle’s Time Quintet.

  29. My teeth are perfectly straight, I never had braces. (But I do have a slight underbite.) 
  30. I’m 31 years old, but I often get mistaken for a high school or early college age girl. (Which means I A L W A Y S get ID’d for EVERYTHING.) 
  31. I absolutely loathe summer, with the exception of beachy vacations. I like sunglasses and swimming, but my skin is so sensitive that I can’t spend ten minutes outside without getting burnt, even with sunscreen, and I spend every second of the hot Southern summer longing for chilly apple cider weather. I do love the ocean, though. 
  32. I didn’t have my first kiss until I was 19. 
  33. I haven’t had a true significant other since I was 19, either. That means an extensive drought, yeesh. 
  34. I haven’t written original fiction in several years, but in the last couple of years my best friend and I have written a Marvel fanfiction story that, with all of it’s offshoots and alternate universes, exceeds the length of Harry Potter.
  35. I have always had to sleep with some kind of noise, be it a television show or a YouTube channel, usually something with voices. I have been trying to wean myself down, by layering rain sounds over it, gradually lowering the volume of the YouTube channel or show. 
  36. When I do choose a YouTube channel to sleep to, I choose one that I want to give retention time to, helping to boost their stats. 
  37. Every year, my grandparents take my extended family of 11 people on a vacation. 
  38. The last time the family went to Orlando, we discovered we had accidentally booked our vacation starting the day that Harry Potter World opened at Universal. My mother (who had had her knee replaced a few months earlier!) declared that I was not going to miss it even though I told her she didn’t have to because the line was long. My sweet mom stood in line with me for nine hours on the opening day of Harry Potter world at Universal. I was in the sun so long that I got sun poisoning, but it was absolutely worth it, and I’ll never forget how amazing it was. When I saw the castle I started to cry with joy. 
  39. I love to travel. I think my favorite city I’ve visited is Chicago. San Diego is a close second.
  40. I cry a lot. 
  41. I hate beer. So much. There is no “just try this one!”. I hate them all. 
  42. I do, however, love sweet white wines. 
  43. And bourbon. 
  44. My other other expensive hobby is video gaming. I love RPGs a LOT. 
  45. My favorite game of all time is a tie between Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Dragon Age: Origins. 
  46. I love thunderstorms. 
  47. I was never a fashion girl, a makeup girl, or a shoes girl until Agent Carter. Now I’m all three and it’s expensive. Help! 
  48. I did martial arts for three years in high school. 
  49. When I worked at a bookstore during a Twilight release, I once had a customer grab me across the counter and shake me when I told them we were out of the book. 
  50. My Nana (my mom’s mom) used to make us chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast, it was delicious, and haters can move to the back.
