62. i had a reoccurring dream as a child - i was at the dinosaur museum with my family when all the doors closed and i was stuck in the room with the t-rex bones. it came alive and started chasing me, eventually i was able to get out and ran to my family (who were already in the car)...when i got in the car, they were aliens (3 heads, lots of eyes etc.). then i would wake up.
63. last week i was a book worm and read A LOT
64. i have no grandparents left and miss them all terribly
65. my degree is in human kinetics
66. i was once a page at queens park (in grade 8 i lived in toronto, stayed with friends of the family and worked in the parliament for 6 weeks - its a pretty big {nerdy} deal!)
67. one time in florida - i almost drowned in a lazy river. the current was moving pretty fast and these boys were goofing around and somehow i got stuck under all these inner tubes and couldnt get to the surface for air. i panicked almost drowned (probably just in my head - but it was realllly scary!)
68. my family used to spend 6 weeks of every summer at my cottage
69. most of my closest friends now are friends i grew up with at the cottage; we only saw each other for 6 weeks of the year but have formed very strong friendships

73. i play sudoku 
74. i only have 4 cousins; 2 aunts and 2 uncles
75. my favourite quote and one of the easiest ways to make me smile is from the movie finding forrester "an unexpected gift at an unexpected time" ... 100% believe that (doesnt have to be big, expensive or cost anything at all)...i am lucky - matt brings me unexpected gifts :)
76. the words i live by are "its all about balance" 
77. when i was little, every year for christmas i would ask my mom for a golden retriever puppy in my stocking. every year i would get a gund stuffed animal retriever, but never got the real thing; i would just die if that ever came true
78. how the grinch stole christmas is my favourite christmas book/movie

94. i have a super high arch in my foot
95. i am 5'6'' and a 1/2 - apparently above average for female height
96. nature is far more beautiful than cities to me...i love sunrises/sunsets, woods, fields, open space etc. more than buildings, architecture etc.
