So, for some odd reason as 2012 came around I began reflecting on my life 10 years ago. I must say that 10 years ago there wasn’t a whole lot I could do. I couldn’t drink, vote or drive a car. I had never been to high school. I had never been on a date. And I was about 2 years away from going vegetarian.
10 years ago I was living with my grandparents. My parents had gotten divorced a little over a year prior. We were building a house. But, until it was built we were living in my grandparents basement in utter chaos! I slept on the floor on a mattress with Rugrats sheets.
10 years ago I was in middle school. Life at school wasn’t the best either. I was bullied by mean little delinquents that made fun of me for having nice clothes and pretty hair. Gosh, jealously can sure cause people to be evil. But, sadly they continued said behavior into adulthood. Not surprising.
10 years ago I didn’t have a cell phone. I had to call my friends on their home lines! Lol. Gosh, I hated talking on the phone! I was probably the only “teen” who did. It’s funny to think how all those people who were supposedly my “friends” back then don’t really know me now. Except for Jules, but she went to a different school and “seemed” to live far away! Lol. Some claim they we are friends, but they aren’t even for sure what I do for a living! Golly, my blog readers know me better!
10 years ago I wanted to be an entertainer or a poet when I became an adult… ahem…. Well, that’s not a far cry from my “career” I suppose one could say. I wrote some kick ass poetry as a teen. I’m still incredibly proud of the poems I wrote back then. Around this time was the first time I actually read my poems out loud. I remember reading them in my English class because my teacher was so taken with them.
10 years ago I wore wrapping paper ribbons in my hair to school everyday. I thought I was so wicked cool! I wore jeans everyday because I hated skirts. I always wore fancy shirts or tees about snowboarding. I wore glitter eye shadow on game days and was never without my lip gloss and hairbrush. I was such a girly girl who liked to snowboard. Or try to anyway!
10 years ago I excelled in every class except shop and gym. I must say I didn’t really put in any effort in either class. Why would I want to sweat! Those were not my type of classes.
10 years ago my favorite band was No Doubt. My favorite TV shows were Lizzie McGuire and One Life To Live. My favorite movies were typically about surfers or snowboarders. My “celeb” crush was Jesse McCartney. My favorite food was pizza. My favorite color was red because it reminded me to be passionate in all that I did. I liked big sunglasses with rhinestone hearts.
Okay, so there’s a little bit about me from 10 years ago! I hope you enjoyed it!!
