Sunday Stealing

It's time again for Sunday Stealing!  The blog where they steal memes from other bloggers (who have probably stolen it from other bloggers) and so on and so forth.

Sunday Stealing: Who Are you? Part 2–The Grown Up Meme Part 2: Growing Up

 15. How would you describe your childhood in general? "I was born a poor black child."  Hee hee, okay, no I wasn't but I recently saw The Jerk and so that was the first thing that popped in my head.  In general, I remember sleeping late, green shag carpet, white walls, a pinball  machine, family nacho night watching "Carter Country", playing with my best friends until mom flashed the porch lights for us to come in.  We lived each day to the fullest trying to have the most amount of fun possible -- the entire street was outside playing flashlight tag, freeze tag, hide-and-seek.  We lived for the sound of the ice cream truck coming down the street -- not a worry or care in the world.  Just as a childhood should be.

 16. What is your earliest memory? I remember when we lived on Cunningham (I had to be 4 years old, maybe) leaving my box of crayons outside in the sun and they all melted together at the top (not the paper, however) into one big blog of a crayon.  

 17. How much schooling have you had? Not enough!  There is always room for more learning. I think when you stop desiring knowledge, you begin to lose your thirst for life.

 18. Did you enjoy school? For the most part, yes.  However, there are always dipshidiots in every crowd that are worthy of a throat punch. 

 19. Stop and count, Since you were born until today; how many homes have you lived in? Well, I have no idea where I actually lived when I was born, but including that place (wherever it was)14.  Wow that's a lot of moving.  Yuck.  

 20. While growing up, did you have any role models? My mom.

 21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? We all got along great... well, I mean, as good as two sisters CAN get along.  It wasn't until I became an adult and realized that I don't have to BE in a relationship with someone that really, truly doesn't like me just out of obligation... and so now we don't get along... well, to be more specific.  We just don't.  There is nothing to get along about since we don't communicate whatsoever.

 22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A police officer or a librarian.

 23. What were your favorite activities 3 years ago? Scrapbooking, sleeping, camping, cooking, reading.  Hey, guess what, they're still the same!

 24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? OCD.  :)  I like things organized.  I was a list maker from the earliest of ages.  I was also bossy.  

 25. As a child, were you popular? I had many friends.  I don't really know about the label.  

 26. When and with whom was your first kiss? Michael Bates, 4th grade

 27. Describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today. That is an epic novel in and of itself.  I will just say that if you don't learn and grow from all your experiences -- both good and bad -- you're a waste of oxygen. I don't really want to get specific in that it's all water under the bridge and I feel no need to rehash anything.

 28. What’s next?  I believe that would be #29, but I could be wrong.  ;)
