Stuff About Me:

Hey everybody!! If you're reading this right now then I just want to start off by saying, you're AWESOME. Second, you're probably a really special person to me (note, I said probably so some of you... jk, I love you all and you all mean a lot to me). But really, I'm going to try and make this short so... here we go.

Last year, against all reasoning and sane advice, I signed up to do UNC-Dance Marathon. (jk, jk, I really loved it and it was super great) What is Dance Marathon? It's an event where you commit to standing up for 24 hrs straight - if you aren't impressed or apalled, read that again, it said 24 hrs. As in a whole day, 24, on my feet. No sleep, no seat. Aaaanyway, I was pretty nervous about it the months leading up to it and especially the week leading up to it and the day of. I feasted like a king about to go into battle the night of the marathon (it started Friday evening) because I was so nervous. Some 24 hrs later I finished what would be one the most memorable events of my freshmen year. I loved it. I can't even say what it was about Dance Marathon that really made me enjoy it. I think it was a lot of things. I could get deep and reflective about the whole experience, but I think the fact that I have again volunteered to commit 24 hrs for the benefit of the kids says a lot in itself.

So, here we are. If you've read this whole thing without skimming, let it be known that I appreciate you so much. SO much. Now, even if you skimmed a little before, I hope you will read what follows because I guess this is the important part: Will you help me reach my goal of raising 150 dollars for the kids of the NC Children's Hospital? Any and all donations would mean the world to me and two worlds to the kids and their families. Seriously, anything: 5 dollars, 10 dollars, 1 dollar, 1 meeeelion dollars, anything. So just think about it, and if you feel so called, press that button that I think is on this page in the upper right hand corner that says "donate"... maybe it's upper left... and give what you can. Again, I appreciate your donations and I know the families of these kids do too.

Thank you for your time and remember, FTK (For The Kids).
