Throwback Thursday

Oh man haha! Ok here goes..


My guest blogger for Throwback Thursday today is – Becky from Bringing up the Berneys

Oh man haha! Ok here goes..

Think back to when you were a teenager and answer these questions!

  1. What was your favourite band?  
    My favourite band, hmm, would probably have been a toss up between You Me @ Six and Evanescence. (I still love both.)
  2. What was your favourite movie?  
    Err, for a long time it was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into? (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc)
      haha, I guess I would have put myself on the edge of Emo, but primarily just “normal.” (You could say Wannabe-emo hahaha)
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    At one of the local nightclubs, they used to hold “underage nights” (AKA: nappy nights) where under 18s could have a night out in the club – no drinking alcohol obviously, it was basically one big open disco. My friends and I were standing in the queue to get in, and at the door the bouncers were breathalyzing everyone going in. I’d never seen a breathalyzer or knew that’s what they were doing, so I stared at the bouncer and said, “I haven’t brushed my teeth!” They then proceeded to laugh and gave me a mint haha. First and last time of being breathalyzed, never felt like such an idiot!
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    I think most people regret half of their teenage lives lol! There are a few wardrobe choices, a few wrong friendships…and definitely a few bad hair dyes that I regret for sure.
  6. What was favourite drink?
    Coke. I drank far too much of it – and I was teetotal until I turned 18, never saw the appeal to drinking before.
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Hell yeah! I thought I was the bees knees for “not following the crowd” and listening to alternative/rock music and wearing dark eyeliner and band tees. (I look back now and cringe.)
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    I didn’t really know, I was stuck in limbo for a long time. I had no real “want” to be or do anything in particular! I did wonder about Technical Theatre or Teaching though.
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    Oh dear. Okay….
