28 Things at 28

This year I'm 28 so I figured it would be fun to share 28 things about me. Maybe we will share things in common, this will make you laugh or this will make you shake your head. It's always nice to learn about others and find similarities, isn't it? 

1. My birthday is February 8th. 
2. I don't wear dark lipstick often.
3. I want to go back to school to get my MBA/JD but don't like the effort school will take so haven't even applied. 
4. I got my first personal animal at 28, a Pomeranian.
5. I don't like avocados. 
6. I love brussels sprouts. 
7. I have traveled solo.
8. I usually am not photogenic.
9. I don't like the sound of German or Norwegian.

  1. I admire you for travelling solo! It's something I've always wanted to do. But German and Norweigen are my favourite languages and accents haha!


  2. I've never been to Venice but I'd love to visit, I've been to a few other Italian cities and loved them so I'm sure it must be incredible! That's so cool that you spent your birthday in Taiwan. I've not visited Asia yet but I'd love to explore over there some time soon.

  3. It's great to learn more about you Sam! I absolutely love dogs of all shapes and sizes and find Pomeranians particularly adorable. I love brussel sprouts but also love avocados -- though I didn't start to like them til I was in my 30s. Thanks for a fun post!
