  4. I love a clean and organized house
  5. My car also likes to be clean and organized
  6. I love to give blood

  18. Interestingly enough my dad was born on 7/11

  20. My dad died when I was 11 and I still get sad about it to this day
  21. One of my favorite things is when my mom says “Your dad would always say…” or “You know what your dad do in this situation…” It makes me feel like I can still know him
