I recently gained access to the blog I wrote for when I was twelve. That’s now eight years ago! I scrolled through the pointless/random posts and decided to do a reaction to one of them, to see how much I’ve changed since I began blogging.

RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME
I have had five teeth extracted.
Well, you have the random part down.
I love stuffed animals (I started a Beanie Baby collection)
I still do! I’m not going to deny that I have a pink stuffed raccoon on my bed.
I used to own a shark (a little one)
Not really a shark… More like a goldfish...
I *dislike* Saxon Math (yeah, Abeka!!!!) :)
Strong feelings about my middle school math curriculum. I'm done with math now!
I like the colors blue, black, and white.
If I had to pick 3 colors now, it would be gray, forest green, and pale pink.
When I was little, I was pink and Alison was purple. As in, I wore pink shirts, Ally wore the same but in purple.
Such cute sisters.
I went to school for 2.5 years. I thought it was interesting. But look at the next one...
By “school” I meant something "not-homeschool" – I went to a private Christian school for 2.5 years.
I screamed and held on tight to the railing of the school walkway on the first day of school. The teacher had to pull on my legs to get me off. :)
I love school now though! My first day at college I didn't give such a problem.
I used to be a Met fan. *gasps!* (why did I say that??)
I literally could not care less about baseball anymore.
Don't ask me what I want to be when I grow up!! I don't want to grow up... :D
But grow up I did! I am pursuing interests in writing and art.
BUT incase I DID.... I would want to be a cop.
Lauren, that is such a horrible idea.
I used to want to be an editor when I grew up. Or an artist.
This sounds more like me.
I love the Daily News comics. Especially "Zits".
I LOVE comics. I own a book of the history of comic strips and like to doodle my own cartoons.
I love Mustangs. The car, I mean. They look *tough*
You are going to love the 1999 Subaru Outback you get to drive. His name is Nemo.
I have a weakness for glue. That is I take a glob, smear it on my hand and wait for it to dry so I can peel it off. Oh, the fun!
STOP. WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT.
