Hi Everyone!

I like to collect books.

My favorite healthy food is spinach.

My favorite non healthy food is ribeye steak.

Currently I am reading Sense and Sensibility.

By the end of the year I want to be able to walk on a treadmill at 3.5 mph for 30 min straight on at least an incline of 2.

No answer for a secret talent. Apparently, it is a secret to me, too.

Before I die, I want to learn how to ballroom dance - all of them.
