Lots of them. I’m still friends with many of them.
14. Who, when, and where was your first kiss?
Oh, boy. His name was Rob. It was eighth grade. And it was behind the high school. He was a bus kid, and I was a walker. I lived a block from the high school, the middle school across the fields beyond it. By the time I walked from midde school to the high school, his bus was usually there to pick up the older kids. It was habit for him to get off the bus to talk to me until the bus was ready to roll. One day, he just leaned over and kissed me before getting back on the bus.
15. You just got thrown out of your country. Where do you want to become a citizen?
Ireland, Iceland, or Sweden. I’m teaching myself Swedish, so there’s that!
I am trying to relearn Spanish by asking Alexa the Spanish name for things throughout the day. Just something to keep my mind going. I hadn’t thought about the blog world being cliquish, but you’re right. It is.
I like your answer about reality TV. I never know what’s a reality show or why. I mean, I get that the Real Housewives are. But what about the competition shows? Why aren’t they game shows? I’m sure there’s a reason, I just don’t know it.
ooo sweedish is hard… loved your first kiss story, and hockey girl! When I lived in Canada it was ALL about hockey. I was from Florida at the time so it was all new to me
Hi Kim, that is nice that you are still friends with some of your classmates. I really like the old days of blogging. It was more of a close community that cared. Not politics, and more unity. Looks like we may be heading to Oahu in the spring. We couldn’t enjoy the beach at the North Shore last time because beaches were closed do to high surf(end of November) though we did get to go to Waimea Falls.
I love the reality competition shows on TV. And the unscripted shows (I don’t know how real they are, but they aren’t scripted).
I’ve been to Iceland and Ireland but not Sweden. Iceland is amazing – definitely worth a visit if you get the chance.
Better funding for the classrooms would be great!
I hope you do Tuesday 4 tomorrow. #1 is What have you been reading lately. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!
I’m not sure how blogging is cliquey.
