26 Fun Facts for My 26th Birthday

Another year around the sun! To be honest, I really thought year 25 was going to be my year, but then COVID-19 happened and not only did it force me to reevaluate some things, but it also made me realize some things that I have been missing that I really needed. One thing I'm excited for with this birthday is that I get to be with my entire family for the first time in three years

For this year's birthday, I thought I would do 26 fun facts about myself. 

  1. I was born and raised in North Louisiana.
  2. I have lived in NYC since August 2017 (does it still count as three years since I haven't been there since April??).
  3. I got a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy. 
  4. I'm obsessed with musicals and I try to see at least one a month (my best is seven shows in five days). 
  5. I grew up taking dance classes, mainly ballet, but I also did jazz, modern, tap and musical theatre style. 
  6. I've only been to two other countries - Bahamas and Mexico. 
  7. I had reconstructive jaw surgery when I was 16, so now I have titanium screws in my jaw. 
  8. There was a group picture taken of our dance company that was used for advertisement at the local airport. 
  9. I have seen James Franco, Jesse McCartney and Jane Lynch in person at the restaurant I used to work at in NYC. 
  10. I'm obsessed with true crime (where my NCIS, SVU, Criminal Minds, and Bones friends at??). 
  11. My favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's, but it's not my favorite Audrey Hepburn movie.
  12. When I was in kindergarten, I was actually left handed, but all my friends were right handed so I taught myself to write with my right hand. 
  13. I really enjoy reading and love a book that I get so into it that I finish it in a day. 
  14. My favorite book genre is historical fiction. 
  15. I've been in the audience for Live with Kelly and Ryan.

  18. I'm 85% sure I've been to every neighborhood in every borough in NYC. 
  19. I used to be a manager at a local restaurant in my hometown and have been back working there since I came home in April. 
  20. My favorite genre of music is Folk Rock (Mumford & Sons, Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, etc.) 
  21. I knew I wanted to live in NYC since I was in high school and even had a poster of a window looking out in the skyline in my college dorm and apartment. 
  22. My friend and I got to go backstage at Aladdin. 
  23. My ultimate dream job would be anything to do with working on or with Broadway (PR, producer, etc.).
