    I was dying at # 4…. My sister loves Shemar Moore. But I heard he is a major player!

    I would personally add

    . video games – i’m a huge nerd
    . sass – its so healing to be sarcastic.
    . organizing/cleaning – I seriously like cleaning my apartment. It helps me feel like my life is in order
