30 Facts About Me

With my 31st birthday fast approaching  I thought I’d give myself a little list of 30 facts about me. I’m sure I could write a bunch of other things, but I figure this is good enough. And most of all some are good for a laugh.

  1. I’m from Connecticut.
  2. I have 3 fathers. ( I only consider my most recent one ‘Dad’.)
  3. I’m the oldest child.
  4. A bird flew into my face when turning the corner once while living in Amherst, MA.
  5. I’ve been to England.
  6. I’ve been to India.
  7. I’ve been to Japan.
  8. I’ve been to Thailand.
  9. I’ve been to Tibet and will travel there again.
  10. I’ve jumped off of the Saybrook causeway after my phone because it fell in the water. (Hello, dumbass!)
  11. I’ve lived in South Korea for almost 4 years.
  12. I’ve slipped on the ice because I stepped on and squished a banana outside my college cafeteria.
  13. I’ve backed into a light post by accident driving. (No damage to my car.)
  14. My first speeding ticket turned warning was because I was driving too fast while crying.
  15. I’ve never been skiing.
  16. I barely ate vegetables until I was 18.
  17. My biggest fear is of the unknown.
  18. I’ve volunteered teaching English to North Korean Refugees.
  19. I’ve studied 3 languages and can’t remember two of them (Hello Spanish and Japanese!)
  20. I’m a terrible liar. (Ask me twice and I’ll confess.)
  21. I swear too much. Fuck is my favorite word.
  22. I’ve been single by choice for 4 years.
  23.  I’m a super emotional squish bug.
  24. I adopted 2 cats, Byuli and Dali.
  25. I’ve heard the Dalai Lama speak 3 times, twice in English, once in Tibetan.
  26. I’m accident prone, but don’t break bones easily.
  27. I went to buy chocolate, got bit by something, and ended up in the hospital for a week.
  28. I have 15 piercings and I’d like to get one more.
  29. I have one tattoo.
  30. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression and have come out on the other side. (We all have slip-ups though.)


And since the end of my 30th year is fast approaching, here is 31.

I have a tendency to choose to like people who are inconvenient due to timing, feelings, or location. Go fucking figure an epiphany like that would happen right before I turn 31!

  1. I laughed the whole time reading this! That hospital stay was 10 days and scared the living shit out of me!! I think number 14 is the funniest… 😘 Happy almost 31st birthday 🎉

  2. I think I am about to remark on all 30 plus one of your facts about you and “Mocha”..Here goes, Nina, are you ready for what may turn out to be right off my fuckin mind !!
    1..ME TOO !! Aren’t we lucky, to claim Ct as our State? ( big deal, it’s getting too rich for my britches, so I am in the sunshine state, and you’re on the other side of the world..see how smart we are?
    2; I had 2, and like you I acknowledged my step dad as my DAD!! You hit the jackpot..for sure,
    3: Oldest is good..you get to pass your cloths down, and get to give advice..Me? the youngest..I got to get the hand me downs, and not listen to the advice I never got…DAH!!!
    4:Oh! great..at least the bird did not shit on your head !!
    5-9: Good for you..you are considered a world traveler..I’m lucky I made it out of Connecticut, and Florida..Whoopie !!
    10: Now, Nina…that is called a real stupid move..You could have done some major damage to that smart head of yours, another DAH !.No shit..you’re right , you were a dumb ass.!!:
    11:Alot of great experience, and a lot of new friends were made, But!!! is it time to come home yet?
    12: Another smart move..Do you stay up late thinking of ways to hurt yourself? or do they just come instantaneously? Just asking !!!
    13: Were you just learning the gears on the car? or just in La- La land?Ha-HA:
    14..I know..you gave the officer one of your magnetic smiles and winked, and sobbed all at once.. Good for you..(you had the tiger by the tail, sort to speak !)
    15:: Too bad..you need to put that wonderful feeling on your list to do things,,Guaranteed, you’ll love it !
    16:WHAT???? no veggies..now I know you have passed stupid, and have loved them for over almost 13 years now..right?
    17: Fear…what the hell is that? If one doesn’t know what the unknown is, how the hell can one fear it? Next case!!!!
    18: You are a blessing to all that you taught
    19: languages ? hell…to be able to master all you have is a great accomplishment in itself,,I’m lucky I speak English, (although at times I question myself on certain words..like the fuckin vocabulary known as cursing ..)…
    20:Me too: One has to have a terrific mind of memory to be able to be a good liar…one in which I don’t have, and by the sounds of it, neither do you..
    21: swearing is also known to many as their primary language…And yes ! I too, have incorporated the word “Fuck” in my daily language..so..not to worry, Nina..someday they may put that word in everyone’s vocabulary,,Just think !! It isn’t anything I haven’t heard, said or done..that’s according to my late Mom, as when I said it, I quickly apologized, and without a blink, that was her answer,,(damn near passed out, and Marie wanted to go under the table )..so, you see, it’s been around along time, as it will be forever !!
    22:If your comfortable being single, then not to think about it..but on the other hand, if your , or think you are missing out , then get yourself in gear and get on one of the notorious sites…But, be sure to take the right path when you reach the fork in the road..ok?
    23: Keep squashing those creepy crawlers, or flying pest !!
    24: Cats are ok..can’t never trust them, but I guess it’s one’s choice as to what sort of pet they want..I guess a cat is better then a snake or a alligator..
    25 : How fortunate you have been,,See, I knew you were before, but now you have attested to my thoughts for sure..What a wonderful encounter that must have been .!!
    26:. good thing you have strong bones…!!
    27..See..i told you that a cat was a better pet then a snake..!!! You are a lucky lady to say the least, and your Mom probably went into some sort of mini shock, as vipers are not the friendliest kind od snake,,in fact I know that it’s been said, even a snake smiles before it nail you..
    28: I am with you..piercing is an art..it shows the artistry in one.
    29: Tattoos..Just got my second one a year ago, and will be having another next month..another form of expression. Go for it..
    30: oh ! fuck a duck..you and the rest of the world has or have some sort of depression.. And most of the time no one likes to admit it..But, I can only say from experience that fucking wagon has no sides, and I keep getting on and off along with the rest of the world,(every so often, it gets a bit crowed) so just keep exercising on that proverbial wagon called “LIFE”..You are ok, so don’t let anyone tell you different.!!

    Now for #31.. So, you think you had an epiphany, do ya..Some people are always in the wrong place at the wrong time and tend to think they have lost their minds wondering why am I here? well, Nina you are where you belong right now..and when the time comes for you to decide otherwise, you will know as “STUPID” is not imbedded on your forehead.!! You won’t need an epiphany to know that…

    Well, my dear..I have spoken enough for now, as my mouth is parched !!! so, I will say “Good night” for now, and have a great day..
    as always I send love and hugs to you..
    Aunt Millie
