Very Merry Unbirthday

Although it is the norm to count down the days to your birthday with excitement, I find myself dreading the moment the clock strikes twelve tonight.

It’s not my age in general that bothers me. It’s knowing there are so many things I and hoped to accomplish by now. The closer I get to 30, the sadder I become.

They say life is not a competition, but it can be extremely discouraging to see people so much younger than I am reach such incredible goals. It makes my heart ache to read about how proud their families are because I feel I’ve been a disappointment to mine.

I’m sure that’s just my low self esteem talking, but I haven’t done anything significant to be proud of myself… So I don’t expect anyone else to be proud of me either.

That is one thing I really want to work on this year… self esteem.

Anywho, since it’s my last day being this age, here are 27 random things about me:

  1. I LOVE PUGS! And thankfully, I finally own one. She is the biggest brat, but I adore her.
  2. My favorite color is turquoise.
  3. Tinkerbell is my absolute favorite Disney character. I lose my shit when she acknowledges me during a parade. No joke.
  4. I’m one of those people who wants Christmas music on the radio starting November 1st. Deal with it.
  5. Rainy days make me smile.
  6. Blood and guts make me nauseous, but I love watching surgeries on YouTube.
  7. Speaking of gross things, Dr. Pimple Popper is my guilty pleasure.
  8. Jersey Shore was one of the most ridiculous things I ever saw on television… and I loved every minute of it. Haha!
  9. Serial killers fascinate me. The ‘psychology of crime’ class I took in college was incredible because we discussed what makes these people tick.
  10. True crime documentaries… I live for them!
  11. The beach soothes my soul.
  12. I am a picky eater, but I’ve been trying new things more often. Go me!
  13. At one of my lowest points of my depression, I developed exercise bulimia. This is why I struggle with workout plans these days.
  14. One of my worst habits is nail biting. I’ve done it for as long as I can remember.
  15. Jealousy is an ugly monster that I struggle to keep locked in a cage on a daily basis. Is it because I’m a Scorpio or …….. ? You decide.
  16. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bitch. You may think you’re insulting me, but I’ll simply laugh and say “thank you” or “I know”.
  17. IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE has been my favorite children’s book since I was about 7 years old. I used to follow my mom around the house reciting the entire book to her every day.
  18. Piano and Ukulele are the instruments I currently play. When I was younger, I played the clarinet. In high school, I played percussion.
  19. Baking brings me joy. It’s one of the few things I’m good at.
  20. Photography was once my passion in life. I no longer know what my passion is… I’m on a quest to figure that out.
  21. I love to color. Always have. Always will.
  22. I am rarely ever on time… yep, I’m THAT person. Sorry, not sorry.
  23. Heat is not my thing. Summer can go to hell in a handbag.
  24. I have an irrational fear of balloons.
  25. I have never been in a fist fight. Ever… but people used to be afraid of me in high school. Jokes on them!
  26. Crafting makes me happy. Most of my projects come out awful, but it’s the messy creative process that makes it fun.
  27. Disneyland is my home. There are many haters out there and plenty who don’t understand why I love it so much … but I don’t care.
