Getting to Know YOU, Getting to Know All About You

Hey y'all,

I hope that I didn't just make this song get stuck in your head but after reading Carly's post yesterday I thought, what a great idea to get to know all of your followers and since tomorrow I am posting my 200 follower giveaway why not get to know all of you today. *Don't worry, Top 5 Tuesday will be up later today as well so YAY for two posts today.

So Carly's questions were the following and I thought I would share my answers:

How old are you?
Where do you live and/or where do you go to school?
What's something that you've always wanted to learn?
If you had to pick one word to characterize yourself, what would that word be?
Who in your life inspires you the most?
If you had to wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Favorite & least favorite food?
Early bird or night owl?
Favorite book, movie, and TV show?
Do you have any weird "quirks"?
... anything else you feel like sharing!

*I'm 24!
*I can't believe I graduated from UNC (almost) two years ago but I stuck around the area (Durham, NC) working.
*As far as something I always wanted to learn it would probably be finance/actually sticking to a budget for a full year. It's my struggle but I am trying.
*My one word will probably be "bookworm" since I think everyone knows me as the girl who always has at least one book on me.
*My mom will always be my inspiration. She is just someone who loves unconditionally, is always looking to help/volunteer her time, raised 4 kids but knows who she is, and is also always reading/learning. She is pretty fantastic.
*If I only had one thing to wear I think it would have to be a little black dress. I mean it would work in almost every situation: fancy, casual, work. Other than that I would say PJs if they were socially acceptable to wear 24/7.
*Favorite food: My mom's Beef Stroganoff (It is a tomato cream sauce and not a gravy) Least favorite food: cooked vegetables
*Night Owl. I am slowly converting to an early bird with my work schedule but if I could choose I would always stay up reading until 2am and sleeping until 11am.
*Favorite Book: Too many to count. Movie: Pride and Prejudice (2005) TV Show: Right now I am loving House of Cards & Reign
*Weird Quirks: Hmmm....I think a lot of my quirks are food related. I really do not want my food to touch on the plate. I zone it all.

So here are my questions:

1. How old are you?
2. What has been your favorite place you have ever lived?
3. If you could eat any food without any consequences what would  you order?
4. What is your favorite book or book series?
5. If you only had one piece of jewelry to wear for the rest of your life what item would you pick?
6. Netflix or Hulu?
7. If you could pick any time period to live in what time would you choose?
8. In everyday life, what is your number one pet peeve?
9. What is one skill or job you wish you had?
10. Anything else you would like to share?
