23 Things I've Learned This Year.

Today is my 23rd birthday. While it's not an epic milestone such as 25, it's still something, right? In honor of my birthday, I thought I'd write 23 things I've learned during this year of my life. 
1. Being single can be a good thing. I have faced the fact that being alone is not always a horrible thing. I've been able to do several things this year, things I likely wouldn't have done had I been dating someone.
2. Conscious box is a waste of money. Seriously.
3. I'm ridiculously scared of large statues.
I'm a whovian, but this fear isn't from the weeping angels. I'm just terrified of large scale statues. I think this started when I saw Athena in Nashville earlier this year.
4. I don't have to eat meat at every meal. I went 6 months vegetarian earlier this year and it just wasn't a huge deal!
5. I am more outgoing than I thought. 
6. I am crazy obsessed with Disney World. 
Since visiting in March, I've been dying to go back. It's such an amazing place! 
7. Don't run on an empty stomach in the heat. You might almost pass out.
8. Don't run on an overfull stomach in the heat. You might throw up.
9. Axl Heck's hair is as beautiful in person as it is on tv. 
We saw them filming at Disney. Also, I learned that I'm apparently a stalker.
10. I love cheesecake. Didn't really realize just how much until this year.
11. Roller coasters are actually fun, not just terrifying. Especially the Rockin' Roller Coaster. 
12. Everyone can be insensitive at times. Don't take everyone so seriously.
13. I have a creepy crush on Peter Capaldi and am really looking forward to August 23rd for the return of the doctor. 
14. I'm obsessed with coffee mugs.
15. Peanut butter, almond milk, banana, and honey make a delicious smoothie that is similar to a milkshake.
16. In the summer, fruit is amazing.
17. There are too many guys you know on OkCupid.
18. Photography can be complicated but also really fun.
19. Amaretto coffee creamer is AMAZING.
20. Vegetables and fruit taste 50x better when you grow them yourself.
21. Adventure Time is really silly but addictive.
22. I buy too many books. 
This is from stocking up while on vacation. They were all used, so at least I saved SOME money. 
23. Don't let someone else's bad attitude ruin your day.
