Good afternoon! The weather in our area today is perfect. Chilly in the mid-60s and sunny, just how I like it.
I know that won’t last forever, so I have been studying in a sweatshirt by a cracked window for the past couple of hours and wanted to share something I didn’t have to use my brain much for on my break.
During this week’s Edge (youth) small group sessions, we asked our high school students a series of forty questions to get to know each other a little better. I loved hearing the answers from my group of girls and thought it would be fun to take ten of my favorites and answer them here.
If I didn’t and kept powering through chapters, the rest of my study time would be spent reorganizing my notecards for no reason at all. That someecard is totally me.
I hope you like these Glamour Randoms every once in a while. Feel free to play along and answer one or all of them in the comments section!
Study Break Survey
Because sometimes you just need a few minutes to do something else…
• If you could live in any book which one would it be?
I always thought it would be cool to live in a fantasy land, only if it’s temporary, of course. Wouldn’t it be great to wander around in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?
• What is the food you dream of when you think of Thanksgiving?
Pumpkin pie, obviously. And creamed corn. Nana always made the BEST. <3
• What’s the last movie you saw in theaters?
If I Stay. Loved it! If you see it make sure to bring a box of tissues…
• Who do you admire most in the world?
People who live without fear, regret, and like every day might be their last.
• What was your favorite game to play as a child?
• If your life was a song, what would the title be?
Is it too soon to say “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift? Because she clearly wrote it about my life… (minus the part about the dating.)
• What is your biggest fear?
Losing someone extremely close to me unexpectedly.
• Have you been told you look like a celebrity? Who?
When my hair was bleached blonde and I had bangs everyone called me Heather Locklear.
People (still to this day) occasionally say I resemble Melissa Joan Hart. I’m not one hundred percent sure about that one.
• If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Umm everywhere. I’ve been to Asia, Europe, and South America. I would love to visit Australia and Africa! #bucketlist
• What’s the most meaningful gift you have ever received?
My engagement ring.
Scott actually proposed with his mother’s old engagement ring and took me through a loop of stories and excuses as to where mine was for months. He surprised me with it at our engagement party and I had no idea what it looked like.

The bottom of it has two sapphires next to each other, symbolizing us coming together and meeting through our jobs with the Orlando Magic! I thought is was very sweet of him to add the unique detail and it will always mean a lot to me.
All right. It’s time for me to get back to work. I hope this post entertained you on this somewhat slow-moving weekday. Have a great rest of your Tuesday!
