25 Fun Facts About Me For My 25th Birthday

On March 12, 2022, I clocked 25. That’s right, I hit the quarter-century mark. Phew!

I know every year is important, but this past year has been particularly impactful in my life.

A lot of things have changed for me and at some point, it felt like I couldn’t deal with those changes. But the days that followed have shown me how strong I am and that being my own person is a lot of fun.

Life truly works in funny ways sometimes.

To celebrate my 25th, I’ll share 25 fun facts about me (fingers crossed) and 25 life lessons that I think are worth reiterating.

15. Try to laugh every day.

25 Fun Facts About Me For My 25th Birthday

1. One thing I cannot live without is yam. In fact, I was eating fried yam when I wrote this. It’s my comfort food as well as my go-to meal when I need something easy to cook.

2. I don’t think I’ve ever been in love. I want to believe I can and will feel more; it makes me giddy when I think about it.

3. My favorite song in the whole world is Nickelback’s If Today was your Last Day.

4. I can hold conversations about nearly anything with almost anybody if I want. It’s one of the things I’ll like to be remembered for.

5. I have a hard time throwing things away, so as a result, I still have clothes I’ve not worn in years.

6. It doesn’t help that I’ve stayed the same size all my life, right? Else, I would have given those clothes out.

8. I truly have the best friends in the world. I love them with all my heart.

22. I sneeze in 3’s.

23. The following quote is me in a nutshell- “I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”

24. I used to loathe confrontation (you’ll agree with me that it’s intimidating!), but I know that in the long run, communication solves almost every problem.

25. I love telling stories. It takes me like an hour to do so because I have to include every detail (I’m sure that’s evident in my writing style)
