4. I constantly worry about stupid stuff.

5. I love Wheat Thins (the flavored kind — gotta keep it interesting).

6. I am partially color-blind.

7. My laptop screen saver is a 3-D drawing of our current stage design. I'm a total geek.

8. I'm so used to having a schedule that I feel like I have to put my entire life on a day sheet. Anything spontaneous is a massive achievement.

9. I really want to learn Japanese.

10. I would love to have a dog — either a miniature greyhound or a golden doodle.

11. I love international flights. 16 hours with no phone service, a few glasses of wine and lots of random music. Or just for sleeping.

12. My backpack never seems to weigh less than 40 pounds.

13. I really want to go to New Zealand.

14. I can empty a box of Sour Patch Kids in, like, five seconds.

15. I've seen every Planet Earth episode so many times I can quote them all.

16. I love cold weather

17. When I was a kid, I thought I could double as a meteorologist in my spare time between gigs.

18. …Or a monster truck driver.

19. I just moved into a two-bedroom apartment so that I could turn the guest bedroom into a studio.

20. I always keep my apartment's air-conditioning set to 68 degrees.

21. Someday, I want to have a Mini Cooper.

22. I'm now obsessed with the mandolin. I might have five.

23. I can't sleep in the middle of a pillow. I get claustrophobic.
24. Every time I think I'm getting into a book, I don't.

25. Every time I'm in Nashville for at least a day, I have dinner with my parents.
