Turning Twenty | a post dedicated to my teens

Eek, how the heck did I reach twenty? I remember being scared for turning thirteen, who knew 7 years later I’d be twenty and dreaming of being a teen again!

I do feel like I’ve reached a solid age, I’m officially an adult-well I pretend otherwise. I scoot around town in my car, go shopping alone, do mature things like changing my bed regularly and washing clothes. More importantly I have a full time job, in fact 6 days a week worth. How did this happen? I swear I was an ickle year 7 being swallowed up by a giant secondary school like 5 minutes ago. Oh well, here we are, might as well embrace it.

Seeing as I’m twenty now and have been for a month I thought I’d share 20 facts about me with you…

  1. My full name is Charlotte Louise Barton
  2. I was born on Friday 5th September 1997, at around 10am. This means I’m a Virgo and it’s safe to say everything I’ve ever read about my horoscope is so damn true.
  3. I live in a tiny village called Cliffsend, located in Thanet, Kent.
  4. As mentioned above I have a full time job. I work as a Clinical Apprentice within the Kent Community Health Foundation Trust aka NHS.
  5. I aspire to be a Speech and Language Therapist and hopefully work with children who have complex needs.
  6. I have a real bad tendency to sing, all the time-even though I can’t sing. I like to burst out with random songs, sing to the top of my lungs and burst eardrums.
  7. I am an only child, this can be lonely or great. Im yet to decide.
  8. I’m left handed, aren’t all the best people? However I had adapted pretty well to the right handed world we live in. Why do left handed scissors cost more, outraged!
  9. I’m obsessed with Mexican food, give me all the spice, all the burritos and all the fajitas.
  10. I’m meticulous in my ways. If its not perfect, I’m not happy.
  11. Unpopular opinion but pizza just isn’t my thing, give me the salad bar any day.
  12. 101 Dalmatians is my favourite Disney film because PUPPIES!
  13. My parents gave in to my Dalmatian obsession and got me my first puppy, I named her Coco. Unfortunately she’s no longer with us but we adopted Ralph my second spotty woofer and he’s the best boy in town.
  14. I’m 5’6″ tall, which is just average…
  15. I am a Brown Owl for a group of Brownies I run in a local village. I’m also Squirrel at the villages Guide group.
  16. I hoard note books. The obsession gets worse every time I go into TKMaxx!
  17. Im a carb-a-holic, that’s not a word but it is now. Mash, chips, wedges just give me all the carbs.
  18. I used to think school was amazing, quickly realising that it actually wasn’t the place for me. Work if a better environment for me.
  19. This one is personal. I’ve struggled with my weight all my life, never been happy in my own skin. I’m getting to a better place but I’m still on a long journey.
  20. I believe everything happens for a reason.
