23 THINGS ABOUT ME

Because I could have totally done this on my 23rd birthday but I didn't and I don't know what else to make my first list about
  1. 1.
    My first and middle names are Nichole and Michele, which only differ by two letters!
    I'm still not sure if my parents planned this (my mom's best friend's name is Michele but I have no clue where the Nichole with an H came from)
  2. 2.
    My birthday is October 25th
    Scorpio pride ♏️
  3. 3.
    My absolute, all-time favorite TV show is Sherlock
    Here's a picture of my bedroom wall
  4. 4.
    I got my wisdom teeth out today and it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be?
    Mashed potato diet for the next few days
  5. 5.
    I have my Bachelor's in English: American and Contemporary Literature, and I'm currently applying for PhD programs
  6. 6.
    I've been a vegetarian since September, 2004
  7. 7.
    I'm an only child
  8. 8.
    I was born in Rhode Island, brought up in Connecticut, and now I live in Rhode Island again
    I've only lived in two towns though, and they're right next to one another. Border states are weird
  9. 9.
    Andrew McMahon is my favorite musician
    I love him. I love Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. I love Jack's Mannequin. I love Something Corporate. I have an unbridled passion for this man's music.
  10. 10.
    I have 3 tattoos
    One of them is Harry Potter related
  11. 11.
    I studied abroad in England for a semester in 2013
    Honestly one of the best times of my life. Please, if you're thinking about doing it, DO IT. Even if you're not in school, you can still do some student-like traveling! Hostels are actually really cool for the most part (with some exceptions, just do your research) and a great way to meet people from all over the world!
  12. 12.
    I have a history of self-abuse
    I don't love talking about it. I'm pretty sure a lot of my friends don't know or just haven't asked about it. I'm not proud of it but I'd love to help increase awareness/decrease the stigma that it's a method of attention seeking. Sure, I did it for attention—because I was really unhappy at the time and didn't know how else to express that. I'm fine now but a lot of people aren't. Please be kind to everyone you meet and remember that everyone has secret struggles you may know nothing about.
  13. 13.
    I want to write at least one novel and a few collections of poems
    We'll see where the future takes me
  14. 14.
    If you want to buy me a drink...
    Either a Maker's Mark sour or a Stella Artois
  15. 15.
    I 💖 pictures of baby goats but koalas are my favorite animal
    This one is my fave
  16. 16.
    My room at my dad's house is always a mess but for the most part my college dorm rooms were fine
  17. 17.
    I love these new coloring books I just bought but they're really testing the limits of my artistic talent
    THIS SHIT LOOKS HARD (top is Sherlock, bottom is Harry Potter, are you sensing a pattern yet?)
  18. 18.
    I think everyone should go to high-stakes bingo at least once in their life
    I've never won but the first time I brought one of my best friends she won. Call me a lucky charm 🎲🎰
  19. 19.
    I had a lisp when I was in elementary school
  20. 20.
    I'm a firm believer that the best place to get Dunkin' Donuts coffee is in New England
    Speaking of Dunkin, my town has two located across the street from one another. It's a real phenomenon
  21. 21.
    I listen to One Direction
    1D is excellent driving music
  22. 22.
    I hate dealing with snow but I love looking at it
  23. 23.
    If you want to woo me you can do so with a large cheese pizza and an earl grey tea latte with hazelnut and vanilla syrup
