birthday princess.

Today, I turn 22 (well, turned, if we wanna get technical). My friend said, "congratulations! You've now turned the first age where birthdays don't matter anymore." It's true, isn't it? I mean, all I've got from here until forever are the milestones. Oh well.. I love my birthday regardless of whatever age I'm turning.

In honor of my birthday, here's something I've seen a few other bloggers do - 22 truths about myself. They're pretty random, ranging from random facts about life in general to things that happened this year. Enjoy!

22 Truths

1. After fourteen years of biting my nails, I think I’m finally going to completely kick the habit.

2. Not having a boyfriend until age twenty-one was a bit sucky at times, but it was totally worth it waiting for him.

3. I’m addicted to watching Food Network. I heart Alton Brown, would gladly have Bobby Flay’s babies, and think Sandra Lee is a total lush.

4. Looking back at my college experience, I realize that I grew a lot and I am really proud of myself for it.

5. After listening to the new Britney Spears CD for the past two weeks, I JUST figured out the meaning behind the song “If U Seek Amy.”

6. Ice skating in Rockefeller Center was definitely worth waiting in line for two and a half hours in the freezing cold.

7. I just finished redecorating my room so it finally stopped looking like it belongs to a ten year old.

8. Every once in a while, I pull all my prom and formal dresses out of my closet and try them on.

9. I really, really, really miss dancing.

10. Driving long distances, like the hour ride to and from school, is my best alone time.

11. My boyfriend has the best recipe for nachos.

12. I am totally obsessed with cupcakes, and will actually be making some for my birthday (strawberry cake with vanilla icing!).

13. The reason I love Tinkerbell is because she’s cute, quiet, and sometimes goes unnoticed… but she’s a sassy bitch. Just like me!

14. “Smart People” was the worst movie I’ve ever seen. My high school friends and I (known as the ‘smart’ lunch table) rented it because we thought it’d be fitting; we all thought it was terrible.

15. When I was little, I always wished I needed glasses. Now I’m happy abut my really good vision.

16. I really want to get back into reading, now that I might actually have time this semester. Any book suggestions?

17. The only big secret that I’ve kept from my parents is when I took a trip to Connecticut to see the So You Think You Can Dance? Season 2 tour for a second time. I know, I'm such a rebel.

18. After trying it for the first time, I found out I was allergic to soy milk. Which kinda sucks, because I really liked it.

19. My favorite part of my birthday is reading and replying to my Facebook wall posts and Myspace comments.

20. Online shopping makes me happy, even if I don’t end up buying most of the stuff I put in my cart.

21. This year defined a lot of my friendships, separating the strong ones from the weaker ones.

22. My favorite meal (that my mama is making for dinner) is ramen noodles with peas and chicken. It’s delish, probably because I love all three of those things separately.

Happy birthday!

Also, 25 is another year that matters because that's when your insurance rates go down. Not as fun as 21, though, but still, important.

Happy belated birthday! It makes me really happy to know that you also think Sandra Lee is a lush!
