31 Things


I recently turned 31. When did this happen, how did this happen, I don’t even know, but it did.

So I’ve decided to write a cliche, 31 things about me, post:

  1. I can’t fall asleep on my left side, it has to be my back or my right side.
  2. When I drink iced coffee it has to be almost frozen. Whenever I go to Starbucks I’ll bring my iced coffee back home and put it in the freezer for 20 minutes, or until it’s basically a slushy. I don’t understand how people can drop a few ice cubes into their coffee and call it “iced coffee.”
  3. Growing up I hated mushrooms and tomatoes. I’ve learned to like tomatoes but will forever hate mushrooms.
  4. My salads have to be 90% ingredients and 10% lettuce.
  5. I’m 31 and still feel completely lost and confused when it comes to most things in life.
  6. I’m 100% a dog person. Other people’s cats are cool but I’ll never own one.
  7. Checking my bank account / credit card balance is literally the worst thing on earth.
  8. My hair is the longest it has ever been. I love it and hate it.
  9. I need my own blanket when I sleep. I don’t understand people who share a blanket with their SO.
  10. I get the question “when are you getting a dog” more than I get “when are you having a kid?” and that makes me happy, yet it’s still super annoying.
  11. I have 100+ photos of other people’s dogs on my phone.
  12. I’m obsessed with true crime shows. Is it wrong that I like murder so much?
  13. I don’t play Pokemon Go.
  14. I’m happy I met Jeff before Tinder was a thing. The thought of having to meet strange men off an app gives me anxiety and I don’t even have to worry about it.
  15. I could watch Almost Famous, Dazed and Confused, and Taking Woodstock on repeat.
  16. I hate the winter so much, mostly because I hate being cold.
  17. I hate most people but I love living in a big city.
  18. When I find a song I love I will listen to it on repeat until I can’t stand it.
  19. The Office, That 70’s Show, and Always Sunny are my go-to shows.
  20. If I didn’t have a career that relied heavily on social media/networking I probably would delete all my accounts except for Instagram.
  21. In two years I’ve been on 2 road trips that included: 2 countries, 5 states, 2 provinces 15 cities, and 5569km driven.
  22. Spending weekends at home with Jeff, watching movies is 100 emoji in my book.
  23. I hate mornings, but when I manage to wake up early I actually enjoy them and get a lot of work done.
  24. After finding my thyroid nodule on my neck last year I’m terrified of finding another lump on my body and experiencing that heart dropping feeling once again.
  25. It scares me how fast time goes by.
  26. People who run…I don’t get you.
  27. I once ran 5k for a thyroid fundraiser and the whole time I was thinking “people do this for fun?”
  28. I hate planes, elevators, and heights.
  29. After having thyroid cancer I feel like everything else is nothing. I don’t mind needles anymore, and I had my wisdom tooth out with only local anesthetic. Before thyroid cancer, I would’ve lived with my painful wisdom tooth if it meant I didn’t have to have it.
  30. My closet is a huge mess and I’ve accepted that it always will be.
  31. I love being the center of attention, yet I hate being put on the spot.

That was surprisingly easy and I could probably add 50 more things.
