I wrote a lot (I wrote my first novel in second grade: though I can’t speak for the quality :P) and I still love writing and blogging now. I also LOVED reading and was a huge bookworm and that still stands now, too! 

I built houses for worms out of mud…don’t really do that one anymore; climbed trees; played on trapeezes: I was quite a tomboy as a young child and am much girlier now!

I also did a TON of theatre: I’d done 13 high school plays and musicals from 7th grade til the time I graduated. I actually went into college as a theatre major but quickly decided it wasn’t for me so I haven’t done anything theatre-y in years. I sometimes miss it, but I know I just don’t have the time to make the committment for it anymore!

As much as Im a tomboy I love all things girly. I swear Id wear my stilettos using my circular saw if I could! Laughing

I’ve always loved reading and still do.

I’m student teaching in a second grade class, and I LOVE how enthusiastic some of the kids get about reading. There are always the kids who prop open a book inside their textbook and pretend to be reading the textbook when they’re really reading their books… I never have the heart to tell them to put their books away because I was totally that kid.

Reading was the main one, still is. I was read to every night when I was little until I learnt to read at 4, and ever since I have always loved reading.

@Regina Phalange:  I did that all the time! Not in class but at home when my parents would check if I was studying, still do that even though they don’t check anymore. (I’m at university still)

@Regina Phalange:  I was totally that kid too! I think maybe one teacher ever busted me for it…a few other teachers noticed it and I knew they noticed, but as long as I still followed along in class they never said anything 😉

I did a lot of drawing as a child, as well as reading and making beaded jewelry.  I don’t  draw much anymore, but I still make a lot of jewelry and accessories.

I read quite a bit as a child–lots of Boxcar Children books and The AMercian Girl series. Now, not so much. I’m in law school and don’t have the time or patience to read. 

I also used to love movies–not so much anymore. I don’t have the attention span for it. A bit too type a to enjoy a movie. 

I was also a cheerleader and would still love it/do it if it paid the bills. Lol. 

My main hobbare nowadays are cooking, eating, and working out. What a boring life I lead.

I’ve always been the artistic type. I used to paint a lot when I was younger, I even started to study arts in college, but I was not as good as I wanted to be so it made me suffer and I don’t paint anymore (maybe I should, there’s an empty wall in my living room!). I also used to dance a lot, I took ballet classes for 20 years, but I stopped that 3 years ago beacause I moved and since I’m a teacher, I don’t want my students to attend the same classes as me.

I read a lot as a child and I started writing 10 years and I didn’t gave up, I’m now a french litterature teacher in college. As a hobby, I still write (A novel is on the way!) but the job is intense so I don’t have as much time as I would like so things progress slowly. And of course, reading is a part of my job and I’m pretty happy with that!

When I was little…I took art lessons (not at allll anymore), wrote a lot (the Internet has ruined my writing…I never write anymore because when I sit at a computer I get distracted by the Internet…boo), read all the time (still very true), took figure skating lessons (I still love skating but I never go), climbed trees (totally still would if people wouldn’t judge), played with legos (over that…really, I totally am)…


Really, I should write again.  I need to make my millions somehow…and if 50 Shades of Grey can be published, anything I write should be publish-able as well!

I was into sports. I loved swimming (and was on local swim teams) and I played soccer. I also read alot and enjoyed art and crafty DIY type things. I still do all of these things in one way or another these days.

I loved bike riding, jumping rope, and drawing. I don’t do any of those three anymore!
