I turned 45 yesterday. I know, I can’t believe it either!

Here are 45 random things about me. Just because.

  1. I am an introvert except that I love large crowds and quiet, intimate, conversations terrify me.
  2. I am English born, Canadian bred.
  3. I just quit my job to do I’m-not-quite-sure-what I’m-not-quite-sure-where.
  4. I am excited by the possibility
  5. I love beer, and trying new beers.
  6. I like a good old fashioned, strong, cocktail. No girlie drinks here, thank you very much.
  7. Gin and Tonic is my favourite.
  8. I can juggle, although not very well.
  9. I love mountain biking and was pretty good at it until I sold my bike recently to live in the world.
  10. I have had both my knees reconstructed due to mountain biking accidents.
  11. I recently discovered hot yoga and no longer think it’s for sissy’s.
  12. I am proud of myself.
  13. I am divorced.
  14. I don’t believe in second marriages but am head over heels for my long time partner, Jason.
  15. I have no children; never wanted them.
  16. I don’t feel 45.
  17. I do not have an artistic bone in my body.
  18. I have one sister and one brother; they live in the same town we grew up in.
  19. I got my wanderlust from my parents; they came here from England with little more than I have right now. They did well, and so will we.
  20. I used to be afraid of flying; and then I talked myself out of it. True story.
  21. I love both cities and being way off the grid, but small towns bore me.
  22. My favourite travel memories are of really hard times or really simple times.
  23. I love traveling by bus and staring out the window for hours on end.
  24. Currently everything Jason and I own fits in four boxes, one large sack, two large backpacks, two daypacks, two satchel bags and a small suitcase. Everything.
  25. I am hard to get to know.
  26. I don’t cry easily, although that is changing as I get older.
  27. I don’t believe we should all ‘act our age’ but I also don’t think we should spend time chasing youth.

  32. I’m a Sagittarian.
  33. I used to think Virgin was also an astrological sign.
  34. I can’t do a chin up no matter how in-shape I am.
  35. The thought of scuba diving terrifies me. You can’t breathe down there!
  36. I believe we all want the same things in life; happiness, a sense of peace, and a feeling of having done what we want to do. We just all get there a different way.
  37. I hate doing laundry and vacuuming (Jason does it all).
  38. I don’t mind doing dishes (I do them all).
  39. I have a terrible memory.
  40. I have Crohn’s Disease; luckily it is controlled by medication.
  41. I also have Psoriasis. I think the two are related. But not related to #39.
  42. I have very neat handwriting.
  43. I speak only English.
  44. I wish I could speak another language. It is one of my goals.
  45. I don’t know what my future holds but I can’t wait to find out.
