    My dad has always placed an importance on education. We went to a great private school, I went to a great college, and he told me that I would have to pay for my college myself if I didn't go straight into graduate school. It was convinc...

    I was on a cruise, and it was with a Bud Light bottle, but I did it. Me, my two cousins, and two guys we met on a cruise. I don't remember what it said, but it was a hilarious night of memories.

    Always wanted it, never happened, until my 22nd birthday! Matt took me to the fair, and the guy even stopped us at the top by request. It was adorable and one of my favorite moments. image

    Maroon 5. They had that great album, Songs about Jane, when I was in high school. They easily became my favorite band. I learned every line to every song, watched every video, but I didn't go to a concert of theirs for so long. Years. Ma...

    I lived almost my whole life in Charlotte, and I hated changing. Although, at the same time, I wanted a change so badly. I had a great group of friends from high school--people I went to school with from 5th grade-senior year. I followed...

    It never happened to me. It happened to friends, it happened in movies, but never to me. I spent four years in college dating/hooking up with guys who could have cared less about romance and cared more about how much alcohol I had in my ...

    As I wanted to do both, and have done both of these, I'm lopping them in together as one so I don't tell the same story over again. Nobody likes repetition. The summer before my senior year of college, I was talking with a friend online ...

    I rode a camel through the Sahara desert. It hurt my ass, and the camels were a little disgusting when they foamed at the mouth, but it was an incredible experience with a group of people I'll never forget.

    I took a chance. A friend showed me an internship she found writing for a "lifestyle" magazine. I interviewed, I got the position, and I wrote. I was chosen to also maintain a blog for the magazine, which had the highest amount of traffi...

    This was something I always wanted to do. Living in New Jersey until I was six, I never experienced the bright lights and the Rockefeller tree, atleast that I can remember. I moved to North Carolina, and of course it didn't happen then e...

    I may not have gone on the show, or intended to go on the show, but when auditions came to Charlotte years ago, I wanted to do it for the experience to see how they ran productions like that. Throwing people in a group and asking them qu...

    The Franklin Institute is an incredibly fun children's museum in Philadelphia. One of the things I wanted to do, and waited in line behind children to do, was to make paper. It sounds exciting, I know. But it was really cool to see how i...

    I always wanted to go. I've always loved Disney, found it a place of magic, and thought it would be the happiest place on earth. And it was. I loved every second of the characters, fireworks, rides, and time with my family. It was the be...

    This was an incredibly weird experience. I'm still not entirely sure how they work. But if you want to do it, and you're 16 or older, you can testdrive one in Disney's Epcot! image

    I didn't think it would happen. After a high school breakup with my first "love" [whatever that means], and living with a parents' marriage that should have ended years ago, I didn't think true love existed. I had never seen it actually ...

    It took a lot. I always wanted to fly and knew my best chance was jumping out of a plane. But what about those crazy accidents you hear about? It was time to put that fear away when I went to college, found a group of people who also wan...

    This was so fun. It's a little intimidating at first when the fish are swimming in your face and touching your feet, but you get used to it, and and then realize how awesome it is.

    I'd always wanted to get a tattoo. I spent years figuring out what I wanted, finally settling on something with a meaning I knew I could never lose or could never be jaded--an owl, representative of my time in college as a Chi Omega. Aft...

    Getting my nose-pierced was one of the most painful things I've done--twice. It was also my first act of independence. After going to college and leaving conservative family life, i wanted to do something that represented who I was and n...
