Tag...I'm It

I've been tagged for another "survey"...

5 Things I was doing 10 years ago
1. I was about to start my junior year of high school at Kodiak High...go bears. woo.
2. I finally had my driver's license
3. I think I had a crush on someone in my ward. I can't remember his name but he had a big nose and he quickly thereafter annoyed the heck out of me. Blast! What is his name?...I have had a long list of crushes--most of which occurred between the ages of 13 and 17. It could be anyone, ah well!
4. Oooh! I know! I know! I had my first job ever. The Pizza Parlor on the Coast Guard base, which was a nesting ground for cockroaches, by the way.
5. I think I was in love with my first pair of doc marten's shoes.

5 Things on my to-do list today
1. Go to my session of the AP Summer Institute (check)
2. Return a pair of pants to old navy (check)
3. Do my "homework" for tomorrow's summer institute (which I am currently procrastinating)
4. Do some of that summer reading that needs to get done before school starts.
5. Go visit my grandparents...which didn't get done because by the time I got done with #1 I was too hot and didn't want to end up sitting in traffic in my hot car after I visited my grandparents.

5 Snacks I enjoy
1. Chips & Salsa (yes this is technically 2 but they go together oh-so-well)
2. Popsicles
3. I have to second Michelle here, I really do like a good fruit roll up
4. Watermelon Laffy Taffy--the big long bar with the fake seeds on it.
5. Popcorn

5 Songs I know the lyrics to
1. "I Know Him So Well" from the musical Chess
2. "Ends With Anne" by Royce
3. "We Are Bound for Greater Things" which I sang in choir in 9th grade.
4. "I Am A Child of God"
5. And once upon a time, long, long ago, Alice and I made a goal to memorize "It's the End of the World As We Know It" by REM because we are dorks. I am so very sad to say this never happened. :)

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire
1. Pay off all debt--student loans, credit card...ooh that would be so nice!
2. Travel to Peru and the Galapagos Islands, India, and go on a few cruises...and to Europe. And to Hawaii again. And on a church history tour. And...you get the point. I guess "travel" would suffice.
3. Buy a new friggen' car! My poor baby is a '92, the dashboard is cracked, and the ceiling is caving in and needs to be pinned up. But she runs and she's always been paid off. And sometimes the CD player works. Usually the A/C (knock on my particle board computer armoire) works quite nicely if she's going fast.
4. Teach half-time. Write the rest of the time.
5. Establish a scholarship program for college kids who pay for their own school but their parents' income(s) still count(s) and they make too much money for the student to get grants and their only other option is to take out student loans. This was me in college and I think these kids get the shaft. Oh, and the scholarship would also contribute to books and housing and living expenses.

5 Bad Habits
1. Staying up too late...even if I have to wake up early the next day.
2. Procrastination...I know that last minute panic all too well!
3. Swearing
4. Avoiding doing laundry until it is simply unbearable and I'm wearing weird ensembles.
5. I'm late to EVERYTHING. Even when I get up extra early...something is genetically wrong with me. I can't be on time to save my life.

5 Things I'd never wear again
1. Hypercolor T-shirts (if you put your hand on a spot and made it hot it would change color)
2. Shorts in January (unless vacationing in an appropriate climate for such wear)
3. A Thong. I tried it once and was highly tempted to just go commando.
4. A sports bra as my daily bra. Oh, to be in 8th grade and freaked out by one's own body.
5. My ugly plastic Sally Jesse Rafael red glasses that were too large for my face a'la Olsen Twins sunglasses. My mom really needs a good talking to about doing that to a 5th grader!

5 Favorite toys
Are these childhood toys? I am guessing so...
1. My Cornsilk Cabbage Patch Doll
2. "Pop!" Goes Perfection
3. Anything Barbie
4. My red bike
5. The old-fashioned metal Slinky which only ever lasted a day or 2 before getting an un-fixable kink.

I played.

Now I am dying to know who it was you had a crush on. That makes me laugh, the selection was minimal in our ward. I dated two guys from the ward. Neither turned out obviously. Kind of like a shallow gene pool.
