6. Crossing the finish line is the best part of the journey
7. Imaginary friends always fall out of the car
8. I AM a princess because my Father is the King of Kings

31. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
If I did one for each of my years, people might grow old reading them.

Okay, I cracked up at the one about "dedicating songs on the radio is not cool". How many times in your junior high/senior high days did you dedicate songs to guys you had crushes on. CRACK ME UP!!!! I'm glad you've learned that's not cool, even though I tried to tell you way back then :)
