Hrm. Seven things you don't know about me. This is going to be hard.

1. I was a competitive gymnast for 9 years. I used to practice before school and after school, along with every weekend. Thank goodness I went through a growth spurt and got too lanky for gymnastics and could no longer stay a good gymnast. I got my childhood back!

2. I know every word to the movie "The Breakfast Club".

3. In 5th grade, I went to a school assembly for "DARE" and actually took mental notes of what drugs I wanted to try because they sounded fun. (yeah, that program totally didn't work for me!)

4. I played violin for 3 years in elementary school and was in the advanced group. I had NO IDEA how to read music and I faked every single concert. I would just watch the person in front of me and would copy their bow movements.

5. I was a good kid in Jr High and never ditched a class ever. The first time I ditched in high school, I took the side streets because I really thought there was truant officers out on the lookout for kids ditching class. I would hide whenever a car came down the road.

6. Once in high school, I was the bad girl. I was the one who would sneak in wine coolers to slumber parties. They'd always be warm because I would hide them under my bed. I would steal one or two from my parents and collect them to take with me to the next slumber party I went to. Then we would all take sips from the 2 or 3 I had collected and we'd pretend to get drunk.

7. I didn't get my period until I was 16 years old. Talk about late bloomer!

I'm nominating the following people for the Kreativ Blogger award (Why is it spelled Kreativ? I guess it ~is~ a creative way of spelling the word!) because I would love to see 7 things I don't know about them!

1. Shayna
2. Jenn
3. Laurel (aka Bay)
4. Jen
5. Jen
6. Jewels (private blog so I'm not linking to her, but I do want to see her answers!)
7. Julie (aka Jules)

Thanks for accepting the award and filling out the 7 things. Many of them shocked me especially the violin.

Robin said...

It doesn't surprise me that you were the bad girl at slumber parties! I was the nerd you used to bully into taking a drink of the wine coolers!!! LOL

I love the Breakfast Club also!

Jen said...

Thanks for the award! I will be doing this post tonight, so be looking for my answers.

We have something in common, I two months shy of my 16th birthday when I got my period too.

Thanks again!

What a fun list. I think you should try to come up with an other 7 things we don't know just to see if you can do it.

jenn said...

Thanks! I'm working on mine now- of course, finding 7 things I haven't already shared is tough!
We also have some similarities in here- I was also a gymnast, but stopped just shy of competitions- I wanted to be a kid too!
I love that you played the violin in the advanced group without reading music!

Nancy, you were such a badass! LOL.

I didn't get my period until 15, and I thought that was late.

MrsDrink said...

Thank you Nancy. You rock! I attempted to fix the commenting on my blog but if you still can't comment, lemme know!
