Sunday Stealing: Who Are you? Part 2–The Grown Up Meme

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? A mixed bag. My adolescence sucked, so I guess it all depends on how you define "childhood."

16. What is your earliest memory? Playing outside the cottage my family was vacationing at for a week in summer. I was rolling around on the grass and came face to face with a toad.

17. How much schooling have you had? 13.5 years

18. Did you enjoy school? No

19. Stop and count, Since you were born until today; how many homes have you lived in? Four. I HATE moving. Packing, unpacking. UGH!

20. While growing up, did you have any role models? Ann Marie from That Girl. JBKO, of course.

21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? They're why I said my childhood was a mixed bag. I got along with my mom and one set of grandparents. My older sister was pretty jealous of me. My dad and I clashed. The other set of grandparents was unpleasant for me. I got very lucky in the aunt/uncle department.

22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher. A singer. A newspaper reporter. A veterinarian. A translator at the UN. Depends on which day you asked me.

23. What were your favorite activities 3 years ago? Reading. Going to the movies. Farting around on the internet.

24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? I was loquacious and generally pretty cheerful

25. As a child, were you popular? I made friends easily.

26. When and with whom was your first kiss? David, the older boy who lived three doors down.

27. Describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today. The 1960s had a tremendous impact on me.

28. What’s next? I don't know.



  1. I like the influences on your life, the 60's defined me as well.

  2. I'm with you, I HATE moving. Good thing I LOVE my apartment!

  3. I hate moving too. But I did so much that I can't remember it all. Been in the same house now for 12 years.

  4. I hate moving, but I know I have at least one more in my future. I've stayed put now for 4 years, and other than the house I grew up in - it's the longest I've been in one spot.
    I was born in the 60's and a child of the 70's. LOL

  5. I think I was more of a 70's person although, there is a lot to be said about the 60's.

    Have a great week!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
