One interesting thing about her is that she would like to ride horses through the Rocky Mountains. In her first impression with Colton, she got out of the limo with a balloon that looked like an apple and handed it to Colton. Apparently, it was a cherry, and she popped it. Symbolizing his virginity. Not the best first impression but she is brave.

Heather Martin

Heather Martin cdn1.edgedatg.com

22-year-old Heather Martin has been waiting a very long time for an opportunity to date this bachelor. She met him once for "15 seconds." Heather oddly enough, never been kissed.

Can't wait to see what how far she goes!

Tayshia Adams

Tayshia Adams cdn1.edgedatg.com

One of the first women Colton met, Colton and Tayshia bonded over both being nervous. Outside of the nerves, they seemed to hit it off! Tayshia is a 28-year-old phlebotomist from California.

Erika McNutt

Erika McNutt cdn1.edgedatg.com

The 25-year-old from Encinitas, California is a recruiter. All of her friends have nicknamed her based on her last name "the Nut". One thing when she met Colton was she gave him a bag of assorted nuts to remember her, and he still forgot her name. It's simple to forget names right?

Bri stirred up some drama night one with her fake Australian accent, but wowed Colton with it. The 24-year-old model is from Los Angeles, California. One thing, most people don't know about her is she played soccer for 8 years. I wonder what other accents Bri can do!

Catherine Agro

Catherine Argo cdn1.edgedatg.com

Without competition, the most memorable girl of the evening. Not because of something she didn't do, but something she did do. Catherine brought her Pomeranian, Lucy. Yes, you read that right. BROUGHT HER DOG! She left her with Colton which ended up being given to Chris Harrison. This 26-year-old Real Estate Agent by day and DJ by night from Fort Lauderdale, Florida definitely is not the favorite in the house.

Hannah Godwin

Hannah Godwin cdn1.edgedatg.com

Receiving the first impression rose, Hannah G. stunned Colton. In the first meeting she wrapped a gift to him. Inside the box was nothing, she said "I brought your favorite underwear, it is rumored you don't wear any", an extremely simple gesture but Colton found humor in it.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
