  9.   I love cashews.
  10.   I often eat crunchy peanut butter with dark chocolate chips mixed in.

  43.   In 9th grade I purposely failed some tests because I thought that would make me popular.
  44.   By 12th grade I had to squeeze tons of classes in and just about killed myself to get straight A’s and get all my credits in for nursing school.
  45.   I did get the straight A’s, and most everyone still liked me, in 12th grade, but I did gain 30 pounds and got migraines and eye twitches from all the stress that year.
  46.   I only pursued nursing for one quarter and then switched to secretarial.
