1. Who was your first prom date?
When I was a sophomore, my friend Mike, who was a senior, asked me to go with him as friends. I said no at first because I worked on Saturday nights, but prom sounded like a lot of fun. Oh yeah, and he asked me THE WEEK before prom, so Sis, Ma, and I did some major power shopping. I had a blast though. Mike went with me to both of my proms, too. Going with friends is the way to go! I cut a rug like no other!
2. Who was your first roommate?
Other than my sisters, I've never had a real long-term roommate. I had a roommate for about 2 nights back in 2004 when I went to a "Discerning Your Call" weekend for Seminary. Other than that, I've been solo.
3. What alcoholic beverage did you first drink?
We used to get sips of alcohol when we were younger. I think my parents thought that if they allowed us to drink, we wouldn't go out and party. For me, that was largely true. My first drink as a legal adult was a shot of Jamaican Rum Creme, which is quite different from real rum. Sis and BiL brought it back from their honeymoon that they ended a day early in order to take me out for my 21st birthday.
4. What was your first job?
Licking envelopes for my mom's boss... Just kidding. sortof... My first real job was at Restaurant. I worked there for 9 1/2 years before leaving at the end of November.
5. What was your first car?
The first car I drove regularly was a 1991 baby blue Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that I called "The Blue Bomber." It had two doors and broke down A LOT! The first car I ever bought was a 1990 Ford Escort hatchback. I lovingly referred to it as "The Little Red Ghetto Cruiser" because it was different colors of red, had no air conditioning, or power locks, power seats, power windows, or power steering. It was just a little pile of metal that got me from point A to point B for about 2 1/2 years. I loved that car, and to this day, prefer a hatchback over a trunk, hands down.
6. When did you go to your first funeral?
The first funeral I ever attended was in 1995 and was for my dad. I was twelve.
7. Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Longman-the young one. She was so awesome. One day we had to draw our favorite thing about school on a paper bag that would be used in the local grocery store, and I drew her. She came up to my desk and asked what I was drawing, and I said, "You." She hugged me right then and there and I fell out of my desk. It's funny because after I got out of grade school, I didn't see her again until I was a junior or senior in high school. I completely changed from the extremely small child I was, and when I ran past her and said, "HI, Mrs. Longman!" she gave me this very puzzled look. But, I still have very fond memories of her.
8. Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?
Hehe. I got in the plane, we ascended to 10,000 feet above some of the cornfields of Illinois, and I jumped out. One of these days, I'm going to land in a plane, too.
9. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who was it with? My younger sister (YS).
10. Where was your first sleepover?
Oy. My first sleepover was at my neighbor's house. Her name was Kim and we were the same age. I was a bed-wetter, though, and probably shouldn't have gone. Yes, very embarassing times...
11. Who is the first person you talk to in the morning?
Myself. Out loud, a lot. hehe. Or else, Barb the Spiritual Care secretary or someone at chapel. Depends what day it is.
12. Whose wedding were you in the first time?
My cousin Jason's. YS and I were the flower girls because we looked like twins (I told you I was really small). And we wore these peach shiny/smooth dresses and we didn't throw real flower petals. They used the same material our dresses were made from, and cut them into hearts and had us throw them. I ran out way before the aisle ended.
13. What is the first thing you do in the morning?
14. What was the first concert you ever went to?
Ty Herndon, when I was in Junior High. My "boyfriend" and his dad, brother, and I went. Ty thought I was a boy, and he mussed up my hair. I vowed to never wash my head after that. That man was very good-looking.
15. First tattoo or piercing?
Ears, that I have since let grow shut.
16. First celebrity crush?
McCauley Calkin, even though he's kinda scary looking now...
17. First crush?
Ricky B. I still have a love letter I wrote to him but was too chicken to deliver. What's funny is that Ma used to date Ricky's grandpa, (many years after the crush) and he found the letter and teased me a lot about it. It was all in good fun though. Rick's a good guy still, but not really my type.
18. First TRUE love?
Ugh... I doubt it was true love, but I had puppy love with a guy I have dated off and on for a few years. Please, someone... SMACK ME IF I EVER GET BACK TOGETHER WITH HIM!!! (I really won't next time, though.. The last time he dumped me, he was too cruel about it).
19. When was your first detention?
I never had detention. I only even ever had my name on the board once, and that was in 2nd grade, for talking to my best friend, Kiel while we were supposed to be working on math or something...
20. What is the first big trip you remember taking?
Canada! 17 hours in a car with my oldest brother and his girlfriend at the time. The rest of my family who went was in the other car. It was fun though.
