The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I’m left-handed, however I’m better at most sports with my right hand.

Super power you’d like to have? Become invisible or heal rapidly. 

Perfect Saturday? Sleep in a bit, take a family trip to the beach, enjoy some ice cream, and complete the day by watching a family movie(s).
