30. After getting a new tennis racket, I realized that the one I broke was a kid’s racket and I was using it for over half of my tennis season.

39. I refuse to wear flip flops. And I rarely wear flats.

40. I love to wear skirts and shorts.

50. Our JV coach calls us “Hollsey” and “Kellis”.

51. If you play tennis against us, you would think that I am this twig thing that will snap in half and that she looks small and wimpy. Looks can be decieving.

71. I have pyrophobia (fear of fire)
