7 Random things about me.

1. I can and have (many times) eaten a box of croutons as if they were chips. 
Not just any croutons, they must be Mrs. Cubbison's croutons.
*I admit - I stole this from Google images.

2. My fear of failure hinders me from attempting a lot of things.

3. I will spend my last dollar on a plane ticket to anywhere. 

4. The first thing I put on after a shower are a clean pair of socks. 

5. I open doorknobs with my shirt. 
Can you say germaphobe?!

6. I have an insane case of paranoia. If people whisper I always think they are talking about me. Always.

7. I laugh at all of my jokes. 
I might just be the only person in the world that thinks I'm funny. Oh well!
