I really enjoyed reading your 100 Things. Some that stood out to me:

7) I lost my brother when he was 16 in a car accident.

13, 51, 62) Since you taught yourself how to play the guitar, maybe you should teach yourself how to play the piano and how to swim. Just a thought :o)

71) I love Barnes & Noble! And Mardel -- I could live there!!

Hope you thoroughly enjoy your Spring Break!
