FINALLY! 50 Random Things About Me

1) I have many personalities (not like Sybil….tho some may disagree!)…these personalities often conflict making me very confused and anxious.

3)I love to give….and make people smile.

4)I hate small talk..especially on the phone.

5)I miss my dad who died when I was 16. I’m feeling him around more since I’ve become more interested in photography. He was a photographer and was very talented, but he never made a full time business of it. I would love to live that dream for him.
