Happy Birthday to Me! I'll admit, having my birthday on a Monday definitely would not be my first choice, (I'll be in class ALL day) but it's not too bad! I spent this past weekend with a ton of my amazing friends, and tonight I'll have dinner in with a few close friends! 

Since it's my 20th birthday, I thought it would be fun to share 20 facts about myself
