7) i got my period at age 9
8) my parents still live in the same house that i was born in (after i was delivered in a hospital that is!)

Happy Birthday, Vania! You know, I've been vegan since I was 21 and I will turn 30 this year (April), too! So much in common (and I can't speak Serbian, either, though that might have something to do with not being Serbian!)

happy 30th, vania!! hope it's a wonderful day for you! i absolutely loved your list. lots of interesting & random tidbits about yourself. there were more than a few where i said, "hee, me too!" in my head while i read it. by the way (off topic), i'm soooo sad i missed seeing you at ooak a few weeks ago. i did keep my eyes open for you. did you chat with my mom? (anyhow, maybe i'll see you there at the spring show!)
