Since turning 29, I’ve learned a lot about myself.

  1. I’m capable of letting the little things go.
  2. I actually do have a fear of public speaking, but only in a very specific circumstance.*
  3. I want people to read my writing.
  4. I don’t want people to understand my instalyrics.
  5. I need to learn how to drive.
  6. I can cook.
  7. I’m not a roommate person.
  8. I’m very type A.
  9. I have to go to Vancouver at least once a year.
  10. I still love Disney.
  11. I may be the only person I know who tries to fix certain problems.
  12. I’m fantastic at reading people.
  13. I’m a good skier; I’m just not an avalanche skier.
  14. I feel a compulsive need to buy notebooks.
  15. I feel weird if I go outside without earrings and mascara.
  16. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses.
  17. I’m great at my chosen field.
  18. I really like helping people.
  19. I’m fine with being attached to my phone.
  20. I’m very English, especially my humour.
  21. I like holding babies once they can lift their own heads up.
  22. My face is just as expressive as I’ve always worried it was, but I’ve made my peace with this.**
  23. I can make a difference.
  24. My memory isn’t as good as it used to be, but that’s a good thing.
  25. I’m a little impatient, but I’m working on it.
  26. I go on iTunes buying sprees, and instalyric sprees, when I’m upset.
  27. I can put things into perspective.
  28. I’m okay at budgeting.
  29. I can sit down and write 300 words in fifteen minutes, if I’m motivated.

*I love public speaking when I get to choose what to say, as well as when to start and stop talking.

**I’ve had more than one friend say, “When we go to the movies, it’s more fun to watch you than it is to watch the movie!” I try to take that as a compliment…and to pick better movies.
