1. Georgia - With the exception of being born in Tennessee, I've lived in Georgia my entire life. To be more accurate, I've lived in the same house my entire life before moving to Agnes. As much as I go on about wanting to leave Georgia forever after college, this place has earned a spot in my heart.
2. Grammar - It's one of those things that so many people despise and abuse. However, I happen to love grammar with a passion, so when I see abused grammar, I scoop it up by its tender little feet and remind the grammar that it won't be abused forever.
3. Georg Cantor - Father of set theory, this is a man I got to know really well when writing my final FYS paper this spring. Plus, I really like set theory, and Cantor is just a fascinating person.
4. Google - It's my first search for just about everything--well, that or Wikipedia, depending on what I'm looking for. Google has served me well over the years, so I can pay tribute to it now.
5. Grandparents - I have four of them. I've met two. Only one of the four grandparents (paternal grandmother) is still alive; my paternal grandfather died when I was eleven, just after I started writing seriously. Why haven't I met the other two, you ask? Well, Mum is from Korea, and her family still lives there. Ergo, I have an entire family halfway across the world that I have never met. Unfortunately, her parents died when I was [thinks]... well, I can't remember exactly when, but it was before I started high school. I wish I could have met them, but wishing won't help me here.
6. Griffus - My Calc II prof senior year, whose class got me excited about math again. So much, in fact, that I switched from an English/French major (when I applied to Agnes) to a math/French major (where I still am now).
7. Gummi bears - I love these. Actually, I love gummi sweets in general. When I go to sweet shops, I gravitate toward chocolates and gummis... but not chocolate-covered gummis. Those are gross.
8. Geography - Geography is one of the few categories on Jeopardy! that I'm really good at. That, the wordplay categories, languages, the rare math category, and etymologies. Since I really want to be on Jeopardy! one day, this is a good sign.
9. Grades - As a fairly academic person, grades are important to me, as we all know. My ego can go up or down, depending on my current marks. Yes, I'm a bit of a workaholic.
10. Gloves - I'm always cold. To help my hands, I started wearing gloves. I have around ten pairs of gloves. I'm serious. Writing while wearing gloves isn't the easiest thing in the world, though. Neither is typing. Ah well.
If you're wondering why on earth I feel compelled to show this, it's because my "letter-giving" method wasn't completely random. There was a method to it. Since Ryan said that G was so evil, I just had to show otherwise, mostly because I would have received G as well had I done this method to myself.
