Sunday Social

1. What were you like in middle school and high school?
I feel like this is a REALLY broad question as I changed a LOT during middle school and high school.  I went to a strict Independent Baptist private school for 6 & 7 grade (worst decision ever!) and begged my parents to put me back into public school.  In 8th grade, I went back to public school and I conformed to what my friends thought was cool....which included smoking and drinking (another bad bad decision).

In high school, I was starting to find myself and the things that *I* liked.  I had more friends (still hung out with the bad influences) and we started going to a new church.  In 11th grade, I completely separated myself from my "friends" who were quickly on a downward spiral.  I focused on a lot of "acquaintances" at school and close friends at church (aka Darren lol).  In 12th grade, I became friends with 4 girls at school that are still 4 of my favorite people and I'm lucky to call them friends.

2. What were your favorite pastimes?
I spent a lot of time with my friends or on the phone.  We went to the movies or skating rink every weekend when I was in middle school.  Once I got into high school and turned 15, I got a job.  When I got my drivers license, I was on the road ALL the time!  I would go pick up a friend and we spent a lot of time shopping, going to the movies, playing pool, for the most part just innocent fun :)  I was also a BIG reader.  I could get lost in a book so fast and just read for hours and hours...forgetting everything around me.

3. What songs were you obsessed with?
Oh man...again..broad question considering we are talking a 7 year span  lol  I liked anything they played on the top 40 station.  I was into Boyz II Men, N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, Third Eye Blind, No Doubt, Sisqo, KC & Jojo, etc.  I liked songs with a great beat....but who doesn't?  Still today, when I hear certain "old school" songs, I can close my eyes and be back at a certain time when I was listening to that song.  So interesting how our minds can do that.

4. What fashion statement do you look back on and cringe?
I did the bang thing for just a little bit in middle school but I have a wretched cowl lick so it's not exactly the best look.

5. Who was your celeb crush?
In high school, I'm going to go with Ryan Phillipe, Justin Timberlake, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel.  Middle School was more like Joey Lawrence, Andrew Keegan, Jonathan Taylor Thomas lol (what happened to him??).  And I still love Justin Timberlake, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel :)  And have you noticed that several people have really only gotten better looking with age? Joey Lawrence, Leo Dicaprio, Mark Walhberg, Mario Lopez, etc etc  lol

6. What was your favorite movie?
I've never had ONE favorite movie lol  I don't know anyone that could narrow that down.  I really liked Save the Last Dance, She's All That, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, You've Got Mail....ugh...I can't remember what else was out there then.  But I watched a lot of movies...most of them were chick flicks of course :)
