27 Things in My 27 Years

Hi friends!

So I started writing this post a while ago and then left it “to sit for a while” (which is a bit of a habit of mine). Twenty-seven is one of life’s big milestones (not), and I thought, what better way to commemorate it than by telling y’all some useless pieces of information about myself? Woohoo! 

So, in the spirit of happiness and fun and also perhaps embarrassment, I thought I’d share 27 things about myself. I know I already did the Liebster Award quizzes, but hey, you can never learn too much about lil ol’ me, right…?! So without further ado…

  1. I have recently discovered I’m practically lactose intolerant. I’m in the midst of cutting out dairy and it makes me want to cry
  2. I have two cats at home in Melbourne, Buckley and Missy (now under my parents’ foothold).
  3. I like big butts and I cannot lie?!
  4. I think the man who discovered a cure for polio and then gave it away for free was a real-life angel.
  5. I love Korea more than I ever thought I would or could
  6. I have started doing pilates 2-3 times a week and it slowly killing me/extending my life.
  7. Speaking of killing, all of my plants (with very few exceptions) seem to die here. I’m hoping it’s a Korea thing, but I think I need to take a good, hard look in the mirror on that one.
  8. love writing letters and receiving mail (obvs).
  9.  I believe in karma.
  10. I also believe in star signs (decants and all).
  11. I have recently decided I need to declutter my life and I’m really excited about it.
  12. I am a homebody
  13. … but I also love travelling.
  14. I once stumbled upon Nicolas Cage shooting a movie at my university, and sneakily sat with the extras watching him until I get bored (this took an embarrassingly long time).
  15. I am obsessed with eating kimchi jiggae. It has now surpassed sundubu as the most delectable Korean stew of them all (imho).
  16. I am a recovering beauty product hoarder.
  17. … and also a recovering book hoarder.
  18. I (and possibly Gav, wink wink) have my sights set on Europe… in the rather near future.
  19. loooove teaching kindergarten and I also love correcting and checking work… is that weird?!
  20. We have a lovely cafe in the next building who we call before going down to pick up our coffees (iced Americanos these days). Convenience win.
  21. When I was younger, I used to try and convince myself I was an extrovert because I thought introverts meant you didn’t like people. Thankfully, I now know that is far from the case.
  22. I recently dyed my hair black (not shown).
  23. I am absolutely addicted to Orange is the New Black. It’s art.
  24. The innocence of a child is one of the greatest, most beautiful gifts in life.
  25. … and so is goat’s cheese.
  26. I’m starting to feel incredibly self-involved writing this post.
  27. … and now I’m glad we’re done!

And that’s a wrap ^^ I hope you enjoyed reading all of this random information about myself. If not, that’s cool too. Whatever, man, whatever.

Until next time,

    1. Oh the pilates came and then it went. It’s been a little while and it was on-and-off even then. It pains me (literally)! However, I’ve been taking the stairs to our floor instead (we live on the 8th floor) so that’s been helping. Staving off obesity one step at a time!

      And thank you for the well wishes! It’s been a lovely year so far 🙂
