Celebrating 29 Years
My birthday, basically my favorite day of the year. Christmas is a close second. 29 years ago, little old CassiCass was born! Obviously, next year is a big birthday for me and I’ll be making a list of 30 things I want to do before 30. I thought that for this year’s birthday I would share 29 random facts about myself.
ps: I wrote this post on 20 random facts on me about 4 years ago.
29 Random Facts About Me
- I was baptized with the second name, Catherine, but it’s not on my birth certificate because my parents had to decide on the day of my baptism as the priest didn’t like my first name.
- My favourite colours are blue and red. I think this links to my cool yet sometimes heated personality.
- I’m tall, as in 1.78m tall, yet the shortest when it comes to my cousins.
- Chocolate is my weakness. Not even a joke. It’s pretty serious. I need help.
- I’ve broken 2 bones, my wrist and my ankle.
- I wanted to become a marine biologist but I didn’t end up taking biology or science in high school.
- However, I dreamt of being a singer or a fashion designer (I wanted to move to Milan).
