30 things about me!

Today is the day. I am no longer in my twenties. Jeez that was hard to say. It’s funny because I still feel like I just finished up high school or college. I don’t feel like this adult that I apparently am. I thought we could do something fun today where you get to know me a little bit more.  So how about 30 things you may have not known about me.

  1. I am a cat lady. I have two beautiful but crazy cats. Dora is my anxious scardy cat and Zoey is my crazy into everything, sour but sweet cat. I often call her a sour patch kid because she reminds me so much of the commercial. You cannot stay mad at her.
     
  2. I had a goal to break the millennial stereotype and buy a house on my own before I turned thirty. I did this when I was 28 and this is one of my proudest accomplishments to date.
     
  3. I grew up in a really small town in Massachusetts. People joke that Plainville is Massachusetts’s version of Pleasantville.

  5. I’m an aunt.
     
  6. I always said I wanted to live 5 different places before I settled down and decided where I wanted to plant my roots. I’ve lived in Boston, London, Savannah, France and Rhode Island. Before settling down about 10 minutes from where I grew up.
     
  7. I love to learn. I have two degrees and would be a perpetual student if student loans weren’t so dang expensive.
