Hate/Love relationship: Definitely basketball. Anyone who knows me knows the struggles I go through to play ball. I love to play basketball - and am halfway decent, I might add ;) - however I can never seem to finish a game without spraining my ankle, many times very badly! To the extent that I require a cast and crutches to get along. This is a lesson I may never learn, or at least choose to ignore the repercussions.


Favorite quote: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference.” - Reinhold Neibuhr
