30 Things I’ve learned about myself in my 30 years

30 Things I’ve learned about myself in my 30 years.

Since hitting 30 years old in July, I thought I better start reflecting a bit on life.You know, like mature adults do.

After sitting down thinking through 30 things I’ve learned about myself (and life in general), I came to realize that I know a lot more than I thought I did. I also realized that there’s a lot left out there for me to discover.

Something that has really hit home for me this year has been the fragility of life. For a while I felt like death was all around me – hovering like a bad smell that you just couldn’t shake. Losing one person after another in quick succession takes its toll on a person – and on a family.

Today though, I feel lighter. Happier. More in tune with life.

So here you have it folks, 30 things about me that you might or might not know.
I could’ve kept going on this list and expanded on each one of these things. I also could’ve been more cute and quirky.
But, I went for “Just Cass” here.


PS I really wanted to put “I’m Sexy and I know it!” as #31 but have refrained…kind of! Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle…
