My first kiss: I was 13 or 14. It was at church camp in Gettysburg with a guy named Justin. We were rebuilding houses. We were staying at this high school and I remember we took a walk around the track at night. We started holding hands. Then we ended up sitting on a hill somehow. We kissed under the stars. In Gettysburg.

Why do you think you are single? 'Cuz I choose to be, duh.
