20 Things You Don't Know About Me

Today's July 18th and anyone who's anyone knows that's a special day: MY BIRTHDAY.
JK, you're still someone even if you didn't know that..

But now that we've established that, aren't you excited?! I know I am.. I mean, it's my birthday for crying out loud! And what better way to celebrate my 20th birthday than by telling the whole world 20 things they don't know about me!

1) I come from a huge family. I have five siblings, and too many cousins to count!

2) I'm actually a lot shier than people realize and than I let on sometimes. If I'm not comfortable around someone or somewhere, I'll be very quiet and closed off.

3) That being said, if I like you or I'm comfortable with you, you can't shut me up! I'm a ball of energy and I'm always a little crazy which is a fun time.

4) I hate eating breakfast. I get hungrier after I eat breakfast which is so weird to me, and so I try to avoid it at all costs although I know how bad that is for my health. (per my mother's request, I ate breakfast today!)

5) I love the idea of amusement parks - they always appear so fun and romantic, like the Beyoncé XO video. In real life, I wanna throw up because roller coasters terrify me and I get anxiety before I go on them, yet regret it if I don't go on them!

6) Speaking of being scared of roller coasters.. Ironically, I want to go sky-diving within the next few months! My friends and I have been planning it for months and if anyone in the North East region has any recommendations, let me know! (Shhh.. don't tell my mom!)

7) Ever since I went to the Tony Awards, I'm somewhat of a Broadway snob, and I only want to see my favorites from this year's broadcast! (If anyone wants to hook me up with Hedwig or Aladdin tickets, I'm all yours!)

8) I looooove champagne. Champagne is my liquor of choice 24/7. And yes, I can say this at 20 years old because in Trinidad, I'm legal and that's all that counts ;)
9) I love new clothes.. obsessed with them, but I hate shopping. I absolutely hate looking for clothes in a store. Give me a credit card and a laptop any day and I'll come out with a whole new wardrobe, but for some reason in a store, I can't find anything for the death of me.

10) When I was younger, I dreamt of being a travel writer. Now that I'm older, I still love the idea of traveling for work - but not necessarily writing about travel. I'd love to work in features.

11) I ran into Anna Wintour in NYC and almost died when I saw her.. she is so ridiculously intimidating!

12) When I read books and finish a great one, I go into an intense depression because the story is over, or because I don't get to pretend to hang out/follow the lives of the characters anymore.

13) I LOVE Pinterest. Okay, maybe that's not a secret. But I have a ton of boards and ideas I want to create or try, and I've never done a single one. Maybe one day? I'll still be pinning though..
14) I love a good pair of shoes and an expensive handbag. As long as I have a nice pair of shoes and a beautiful handbag, I'll be a happy camper. 

15) I've had, I think, 5 surprise parties in my life, and for some reason I never expect it. You would think after 5 you start to expect it, but I never do! 

16) I cannot eat any meal that crunches. It stems back from when I was a kid (and a very picky eater), we went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner and I insisted that I wanted a hotdog, so they whipped one up for me and it crunched, and since then my life has changed. 

17) I'm Lebanese, and I took Arabic for two years, where I learned to speak and write it, but I don't remember anything but the alphabet. All the conversational Arabic I know, I've picked up from my parents. But last night I went to a Lebanese restaurant and the waiter called me by name.. it took me a minute to realize he looked at my Arabic name necklace. Dumb moment! 

18) I got a concussion from B.o.B. Yep.. that happened. 

19) I am deathly afraid of creatures - spiders, cockroaches, snakes.. you name it. Ew.. 

20) It's my birthday!!!!! Wait, we established that already.. whoops!!

Happy Friday to all of you, and happy birthday to me!

  9. First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Yay! I loved reading all of these facts about you. I have so so many cousins too! I've never even attempted to count. Roller coasters make me want to throw up. They always seem like a good idea initially though. Books make me feel so many emotions. It's amazing how easily I get lost in the world created in books and how attached I become to the characters. I definitely get sad when I'm really invested in a book and it's suddenly over. I love Pinterest too! That's crazy that you've haven't done anything that you've pinned yet! You'll definitely have to get on that! I hope you have an excellent birthday weekend!

  10. Happy birthday! Breakfast is actually my favorite meal haha, I could eat breakfast foods all day if you'd let me! Also, about Hedwig--my cousin Miriam played the original Yitzhak, both in the original Broadway cast and in the film. Fun fact. :)

  17. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.
