8. The person from history I'd most like to meet is... I would like to meet Benjamin Franklin because of all of his scientific findings and inventions.
9. What is your favorite vacation spot and why? My favorite vacation spot is one that is near the beach and a golf course. When we go on family vacations, we usually play a couple rounds of golf.

10. What is one movie that you could watch over and over again and not get sick of? There are two movies that I could watch and not tire from: Any Given Sunday and The Hangover. Any Given Sunday is one of my favorites because it is an exciting football movie that motivates me. I could watch The Hangover a hundred times and still find it hilarious.
