I found this on a friend’s blog and thought I would join in for something a little different…
10 WAYS YOU ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT THAN YOUR YOUNGER SELF
1. I used to HATE oranges when I was a kid
I didn’t start eating them until about 6 or 7 years ago.
2. I am unorganized now.
I used to be super-organized. I had lists of my lists. My grocery list was alphabetized and in order by the layout of the store. My Christmas lists were on Excel. I now have twins. I don’t have time to be that organized.
3. I dye my hair.
I’ve been dying my hair since highschool. I honestly don’t know what the natural color is.
4. I was never an animal person– just dogs and cats.
These days… nothing scares me. Guess it comes from living closer to the “country” and having friends with animals. The day I picked up a duckling without squealing, I thought my mom would keel over in a dead faint.
5. I love outdoors.
I used to love to hike. But, I haven’t been hiking since I was in high school.
6. I used to play clarinet– in band, in a community orchestra, and take private lessons.
I haven’t touched my clarinet since I graduated high school. I’m not even sure I could remember the keys for the notes.
7. I used to be super-critical about everyone and everything.
I didn’t stop or realize it until I met my husband and he would point it out to me. So, I try as hard as I can to not be like that.
8. My ultimate dream is to be a professional race car driver.
I know it will never happen. But, then and now… I would love to be a professional drag racer.
9. I used to love to fish, now the idea of it makes my eyes roll.
We use to go fishing all the time as a kid… but, since I was old enough to stay home I would bow out. I used to love it… sitting there with my pole waiting for a bite. These days, I think I would rather go to the dentist.
10. I love to read– both then and now.
I love to read. All the time. When I was in highschool, I used to stay up and read all night, go to school, come home and do it again. These days, I have to sneak on my reading while the kids are playing…
