oversleeping and sprung out of bed like a ninja: 959

Number of broken bones: 3

Number of scars, physical: 4; emotional: 947

Number of funerals attended: 7

Number of friends, Facebook: 744, real: 9

Number of cavities filled: 0

 

Percentage of people I can stand in the world: 3.5

Number of times I’ve laughed so hard my sides would bruise: 2,972

Number of times I’ve wanted to bawl my eyes out: 320

Number of things I know: 918,394
