Oh hey, I’m 21 now! Where did the time go? I felt as if I was 18 yesterday and suddenly poofed up to 21 today. Though nothing significant about me changed within the past 3 years so it makes sense that everything feels the same. There are some things about me people don’t know about while there are other things about me that are totally obvious. I decided to pull together a list of 21 random things about me worth mentioning about. How many items within this list did you already know about?

21 random things about me
  1. My favorite food of all time is sushi in any form whether it’s in a roll, nigiri, or bowl.
  2. I’m a Modern American Muscle car enthusiast. Their looks and performance go a long way 😺.
  3. I’m borderline cat-lover queen… If only I could legally have one at the university village.
  4. Can I say I’m head of IT at work? I pretty much run the whole department anyways.
  5. Once upon a time, I was a cool clarinet chick. Now I’m a cool computer-information-systems chick.
  6. My interest in my major started when I was a senior in high school when I joined the cyber defense team.
  7. Felicity Smoak is my #WomanCrushWednesday.
  8. Dresses are my thing`. (see above)
  9. Occasionally, I like to play computer games when time permits. But when time doesn’t permit, I don’t even know what games are released anymore 😿.
  10. It’s fun to use glass dinnerware and colorful pens.
  11. I love the scent of eucalyptus mint to the point where my room smells like it thanks to my incense sticks and wallflower plug.
  12. My favorite little things to collect includes plush cats, shot glasses, and Disney keychains.
  13. My boyfriend is better than me at using chopsticks. Eating noodles? I’m good with using a fork 😺.
  14. Over the past few months, I developed an obsession over uni bowls.
  15. My taste in music can change from listening to symphony one second and hip hop the next. My Spotify history can be pretty interesting.
  16. I enjoy rewatching Need For Speed even though it would be my 11th time watching at this point…
  17. Aside from the whole Modern American Muscle craze, I also appreciate AMG’s (aka Mercedes-Benz cars with the performance specs loaded).
  18. I can have an overly-detailed criterion when it comes to shopping.
  19. I can sign my name in Farsi and speak some phrases. Oooh salam doostam! Che tori?
  20. My attention span for food can come really short at times. I don’t really like eating the same thing repetitively over a short time so I have to cook something different every night.
  21. My boyfriend and I are tag team partners dubbed as “Team Lovely Lion and Beautiful Bear“.

On the last note, my super sweet boyfriend gave me three new Pandora charms for my bracelet. The newest addition includes the Ariel Tiara charm, Lucky Cat charm, and King of the Jungle (Lion) charm. I love how personalized the bracelet is and there’s no wrong way to build a bracelet. As far as my personalization goes, I like Ariel more than the other Disney princesses, I’m a total cat lover, and same goes for lion 😺.

    Happy Birthday! The birthday’s only start to come quicker and quicker as you get older. I honestly don’t know how I am already 30!

  2. Jhanz ☆ June 14, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    Nice knowing you a bit more! 😀

    Happy birthday, Nancy! Can’t believe you’re 21 now! Eeeee! I remember when you were like 18 or so 😀 21 is a good age. I actually miss my early 20s! So you enjoy it while you can ^^

    And huzzah for doing this meme! I love getting to know more about my friends, so it was fun reading those facts. Like you, I have a short attention span for food, too. I cannot eat the same thing every day, so I have to be diverse with my food choices 😀 My music choices are also diverse like yours, but with a more emphasis on instrumentals.

    Also, that bracelet you got is so pretty! Pandora’s are so pretty, but so expensive!

    Awe this is cute, I love the gift he got you its adorable. I would have never guessed the fact about sushi, you tweet often about it 😛 Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful time!

  5. Cat ☆ June 15, 2015 at 9:38 pm

    Happy (belated) Birthday! I love the charms on your bracelet. That’s sweet that your boyfriend bought you 3 more 🙂

    I love sushi so much. I crave it even more now that it’s summer XD I think that’s interesting that your interest in your major started in your last year of high school! That’s actually similar to me. I didn’t think of doing Computer Science until then.

    I also think that’s awesome that you run the IT department already. For me, the movie I keep rewatching is Ocean’s Eleven. I’ve probably seen it over 10 times too, haha.

    I always like reading random facts about a person 🙂 It’s a bunch of little things, but I feel like I learn more about someone. Plus, it’s fun! I hope you had a great birthday!

    Belated happy birthday!
    I’m also a cat lady, although it’s probably because I relate to them in terms of being lazy haha
    My boyfriend is also better than me in using chopsticks. I don’t even bother with them with noodles lol
    “Team Lovely Lion and Beautiful Bear“. This made me awww
    Those charms look awesome and your boyfriend seems sweet 🙂

    Happy 21st birthday! 21 is such a great age; I remember having lots of fun celebrating. Those charms are lovely and I also have a very detailed criteria for shopping, specifically for jeans and food, haha!

  8. Michelle ☆ June 16, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    Happy birthday ^^ 21 is a big age and not because you can drink because it marks the end of teenage years and gives you more freedom to do stuff unlike being 18 does.

    I’ll be 26 in August. Time certainly does fly. I believe that wholeheartedly.

  9. Chynna ☆ June 17, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    I can’t believe you’re 21. You’re right – where did time go?! YOU’RE FINALLY LEGAL AND WE CAN DRINK TOGETHER AND BE MERRY LITTLE DRUNKS! :)))))))))

    But, honestly – we’ve known each other for so long now!

    I kind of figured sushi would be your favourite food, haha. Felicity Smoak is my #WomanCrushEveryday – seriously, that series finale of Arrow but me poop rainbows. I collect shot glasses! Every time my friends go away, they bring me back a shot glass as a present and I get one every time I go somewhere new!

    (Ariel is also my favourite. I had such big crush on Eric, too <3)

  13. Bhairavee ☆ June 22, 2015 at 2:19 am

    Belated Happy Bday to you, Nancy!
    21 seems like pretty old at times, doesn’t it? I’m enjoying my last few couple of weeks before I turn 22 🙁 😛

    Liked your idea of listing down 21 facts!
    I like that you are so much into computer systems now!
    Your charm bracelet is so cute!

  14. Georgie ☆ June 25, 2015 at 5:43 am

    You got spoiled good! 😉 Happy belated birthday, Nancy! 🙂 <3

    I think I knew a handful of these facts about you – sushi, cool clarinet chick, kicking ass at work – which makes me smile because you’ve obviously made your wonderful self shine through all your blog posts. 😀
