Birthday Post: 23 Things About Me & 23 Birthday Love List

Today is my birthday! So I interrupt the typical style posts to bring you a basic birthday girl post! Twenty-three things about me for my twenty-third birthday! I kind of can’t believe that I’m twenty-three. One because, time, wow does it pass. But also because all of my friends are at least six months older than me and are turning twenty-four, so I routinely forget how old I am. While I have to think about it most of the time when somebody asks, I am still excited to be twenty-three! So without more rambling, here’s twenty-three facts about me and twenty-three things I’m loving on my birthday!


Outfit Details: Sweater • Skirt • Boots

  1. My favorite food is pork dumplings, my favorite dessert is a vanilla vanilla cupcake, and my favorite drink is anything fruity
  2. Every job I’ve wanted has come with a city to do it in: An executive chef in New York, a clinical psychologist in Boston, an author in Los Angeles. But now I’m planning on moving to D.C.
  3. I’m doing my best to become a plant lady. My favorite flowers are peonies (of which I’ve only had the fake decoration kind) and I love succulents (my current one is named Isla)
  4. I really do only wear skirts and dresses but on casual days you may catch me in leggings. I’m not a huge fan of jeans; I only own one pair and I’m not even sure where they are
  5. My favorite color is green but I wear and decorate with a lot of blues, pinks, and golds
  6. I love butterflies!
  7. I am super interested in the supernatural but I am also super scared of experiencing anything supernatural. I also don’t like horror movies. A twenty-minute Youtube video is enough for me
  8. I started a blog twice before Chapter Fifteen: the first time my senior year of college as an OOTD blog, though I think I only took one picture. And second with a college friend our sophomore year. We made an Instagram account and a website but never made any content. I started Chapter Fifteen my senior year
  9. I get really addicted to phone games really easily. Show me a game I like and I’ll sit there and obsessively plan it for the next week. Catch me at any moment playing Sims Freeplay, 2048, or any .io game
  10. If you ask what my favorite book is, I’ll give you three categories: recently read, literary fiction, and longest running. The answers: Save the Date by Morgan Matson, Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, and Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  11. If I could wake up tomorrow with a new talent, it would be some kind of art like drawing or painting
  12. I have a bucket list ten pages long with highlights including: visit Prague, road trip across the country, learn how to skateboard, and get a book published
  13. I’m always down for an 80s movie: Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Can’t Buy Me Love, and St. Elmo’s Fire are my recommendations
  14. In high school, I wanted to change my name from Alex to Alix
  15. My favorite singer is Ed Sheeran. All the hearteyes for him!
  16. I like numbers that are multiples of five (I call them “neat” numbers) and things like the volume and the amount of something I prefer to be in a multiple of five. But seven is my lucky number
  17. I keep all my fortunes from fortune cookies in a box. I got asked to my senior prom via fortune cookie
  18. When I was younger, I used to collect snowglobes, now I collect prints from the places I visit
  19. I’m very observant
  20. The craziest thing I ate was alligator and it wasn’t bad
  21. I like designing floor plans for houses and interior design. If I weren’t writing, I’d probably be an architect. And I love contemporary modern style
  22. I’m definitely a night person. I could stay up until five in the morning but I hate waking up at five in the morning
  23. I’m pretty sure I have misophonia because hate all mouth noises. But what really grates my nerves is when people loudly moan or groan when they yawn. Just the worst sound ever
