Birthday posts, seem weird to me. Almost brag or prideful, kind of showy and yet here I am.
I am 31 today. Seriously.
10 years ago, we celebrated my 21st birthday not at a bar but seeing Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. yep, I was (still am actually) a nerd.
Since there isn’t a new Harry Potter to commemorate this birthday, I thought I’d share 31 things about me!
