Fun Facts about Jamie by Courtney Robinson:

If Jamie were to go to the moon, the first thing she would do is visit the dark side of the moon, so she could finally have a fun fact to share at dinner parties.

Her favorite pie is apple, as she feels it is far more superior to all other pies.

If Jamie could only grow one crop on her land, she would grow avocados because she could sell them for a profit to buy chips for her unlimited supply of guacamole she'd make.

Jamie's favorite SCU tradition is midnight breakfast during dead weeks. She says,"there is nothing like some killer pancakes to get me ready for my finals!"
