Favorite movie: Singin’ in the Rain

If you could add one thing to the BYU campus what would it be: The occasional tree house (sometimes all the good study/lunch spots are taken).
Gatorade, PowerAde or Vitamin Water: Killer Blue PowerAde prepared by Judd or Sam
Most embarrassing moment: I asked a cute boy to go sledding with me by yelling only one word of the question to him each time I ran around the indoor track…but hey, he said yes.
