27 Candles

by Nicole Franco

Today is my 27th birthday. Part of me wants to officially start lying about my age while the other wants to jump to 30 and be done with this weird limbo, life stage we call our twenties. I’m not one to really make a huge deal about my birthday, I think its a Sagittarius thing. So to celebrate me unwillingly getting older I decided to write 27 random facts about me that you probably don’t know.

  1. I live in San Diego (although you may already know that)
  2. I have a younger brother, his name is Zach
  3. I have a Maltese doggy named Sammy who you’ve probably seen in my IG stories.
  4. I’m REALLY shy until I get to know you
  5. Also a total introvert and a wall flower.
  6. I went to the University of Arizona. Majored in Communication and minored in Spanish.
  7. Also thought I was going to go to school to become a pharmacist before that failed really fast.
  8. I moved to New York two weeks after I graduated college with no job and lived on my friends couch while I figured out my life there.
  9. Lived there for 2 1/2 years – really thought I’d spend the rest of my life there
  10. But now really happy I did leave NYC, I was becoming that person who “could never live anywhere but the city” and I hated that.
  11. I was born and raised in Phoenix.
  12. I actually never liked living in Phoenix, even at the age of probably 12 – just never felt like I belonged there.
  13. I LOVE LIVING NEAR THE BEACH! And California in general. This is my home.
  14. But I am extremely terrified of the ocean. I won’t go in the water past my knees because sharks.
  15. I used to be a dancer when I was younger. Probably my one regret in life was quitting dance.
  16. I spend waaay too much of my time watching ballet videos on YouTube – I’ve never actually admitted that to anyone until now.
  17. I have 3 tattoos and definitely more to come. (Sorry Mom)
  18. I think I’ve always been into fashion. I was the pickiest child when it came to my clothes (let’s be real I still am)
  19. I saved up to buy my own Louis Vuitton speedy 25 bag (LOL) when I was 13/14.
  20. I rarely watch TV or movies. I’m the worst binge watcher and movie watcher. There’s a 95% chance you could name a movie or show and I haven’t seen it.
  21. I’m really good at polishing my own nails. I trained myself so I would stop spending so much money on manicures.
  22. I have the longest skin care routine for morning/night. My friends make fun of my all the time for it.
  23. I drink San Pellegrino like my life depends on it.
  24. I studied abroad in Italy in college. I think that was the happiest/best time of my life. But then again who wouldn’t be happy living in Italy and “going to school”
  25. I hate shopping with people. Unless I’m with my mom.
  26. I hate tomatoes.
  27. My freckles under my eyes are my favorite feature. I have 5 that are randomly in a perfect row under my right eye.
