More About Me
I love baseball and basketball. I use to play, but now I can't. I have wanted to talk, but I can't email any one. I am one big tomboy. I am also a daddy's girl. I love my older sister and love to spend time with her. I think I can see myself in her a little bit. I love hanging with friends, doing 4-H, sports, and spending time with my sister. I am always worried about what will happen in the future. I think no boy will like me, because of this disease. Well, that's me and more secrets to come. If you want, e mail me. ttyl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
