100+ Things about me

Hi everyone. Today is a special day for me because I just turned 21. I’m surrounded by friends and people who love so I feel grateful and blessed. Since it took me a while to finally have the courage to be myself and to accept all my flaws, I figured that the best way to start with this blog was to let you into my world. I made a list of 100+ things about me, the most random yet true stuff I could think about.
