For my block class this year (the class where I go and shadow a teacher for the entire semester..eek! so excited) we are currently doing a project comparing ourselves from when we were in 5th grade to now. We are to make a poster and share it to our 4th or 5th grade class next week. I had a lot of fun with this project, mainly because I found it so funny that many of the things I liked when I was 9 I still like when I am 21.
We had to talk about what kind of music, movies, book and hobbies we were into then and now. Here is what I came up with:
The best difference about me now from then is I have no braces! I had braces for 2 years and did NOT like it one bit. Thankfully I got them off in 8th grade so my teeth were nice and straight for high school.
I was OBSESSED with The Spice Girls!! Me and my best friends Nina, Laura, Stephanie and Courtney were each a Spice Girl. I was Ginger Spice haha! We even skipped school and rented a huge van with our moms to drive to Dallas and go to a Spice Girls concert. It was one of the best concerts ever, probably because we also dressed up like them lol.
N*SYNC baby! I used to think these boys were hot stuff...hello Justin Timberlake and your sweet frosted tips! lol
It's a tie between Michael Buble and John Mayer. I love their relaxing, smooth voices. When I am really stressed, which seems to be happening a lot lately thank you college!, I crank up their music and all my problems seem to fade away. I really want Clint and I's first dance to be to a Michael Buble or John Mayer song, I just can't decide which one! Any suggestions?
Three Words--American Girl Dolls
I loved my American Girl dolls! And I have to admit that I still have them lol...they are in my hope chest in my closet :)
These two furballs
MOVIES: Then and Now
It is so crazy that the first Harry Potter movie came out when I was 10 and I just saw the last one:( It truly is an end of an era! I think people my age are more attatched to the Harry Potter franchise because we literally grew up with it.
Harry Potter, again.
I am loving THe Hunger Games series. I was hesitant at first because my friends who had read it did a horrible job of describing what they were about
"Oh it's about the US after a war and there are districts that each have make one good like agriculture or coal. And then there's an uprising.."
Ummmm, ya the books are SO MUCH MORE than that. I seriously could not put them down once I started. I am a sucker for a love story and I really like the female lead in this one, Katniss, because she isn't such a pansy like Bella from Twilight. The story definitely isn't all fluff and love which makes it really entertaining. And for any of you out there who have read it already I hope you are Team Peeta!
Well that was fun, it kinda makes me miss my childhood when I never had to think about making sure to have meat thawed for dinner, doing my own laundry or taking care of 3 "babies"..yes I am talking to you Clint, Bo and Belle. ;)
