So since I'm bored and I don't make many threads I figured I'd make one here since it seems a little slow. So here are some random facts about me:

-19
-wasn't really considering Georgia when I picked the username, I just really like my dog. He's pretty super.
-vegan (yeah I'm a weirdo! No not really I'm cool I promise)
-favorite color is orange
-hmm what else, see I'd usually say something about gymnastics but that's not gonna fly here...favorite skill, that would be various flyaway type deals.

Random facts about you?

OMGMETOO. almost put that in but I wrote it in another thread so I didn't want to belabor the point. It's okay on bars (although I have to spray my hands in between) but as soon as I get off I have to wash my hands.

Hmm, why not?

- For now, I speak German at the gym, in class, and with friends.
- I'm picking up a third language this year, although I can't decide between Korean or Latin (yes, random)
- Lacto-ovo vegetarian
- I'm starting figure skating in the fall, since I figured I should pick up another sport... this is my last year of gymnastics, since I'll be graduating from college. :)
- Very proficient on piano and violin
- I have to sneak a gymnastics-related one in here: To this day, I still cannot do a shoot through, mill circle, or FHS with straight legs, and that doesn't seem to have hurt me at all!

-I just started my 4th year of cheerleading and I have had 8 different coaches

I don't believe it.

More random facts:
-don't have weird issues with cheerleading (and that can be controversial in gymnastics circles lol)

-my best memory in gymnastics is winning bars at L8 states and sticking my double back the day after I basically had a breakdown because I kept falling on my second bar part after I'd been doing so well on bars all year. I remember that a lot because everything also went downhill pretty soon after that with my training group and favorite coaches. So that was a nice day and my other teammate won AA after she dealt with a lot of fear issues prior to states and had to work really hard to get her routines back.

-I like this smiley: :D

-My favorite books are The Sorrow of War and The Giving Tree
