Way back in the day, I had a LiveJournal, and every so often (maybe once a year?) I like to log in and look at some of my old entries. On this date in 2003 - ELEVEN YEARS AGO!! - I did a survey and today I decided to take it again and see which of my answers changed and which stayed the same.

Name four bad habits you have:
1. procrastinating (still true)
2. swearing (still true) 
3. being a perfectionist  Definitely mellowed out in my old age. I'll replace this with eating handfuls of chocolate chips between meals.
4. getting too jealous, too easily. Let's update this with using my phone at the dinner table. No longer the jealous type. 

Name four good habits you have:
1. taking my vitamins (every day!) 
2. washing my makeup off before bed (yes ma'am) 
3. picking up after myself (for the most part) 
4. returning phone calls right away I HATE using the phone. Let's say being organized - at least on paper. 

Name four scents you love:
1. Vanilla Coffee
2. Healing Garden Sheer Passion Christmas trees
3. fresh baked bread (4 LYFE) 
4. Polo Sport Hawaiian Tropic 

Name four things you'd probably never wear:
1. black lipstick
2. short shorts
3. Montreal Canadiens merchandise
4. men's underwear
(These are all still pretty accurate)

Name four things you like:
1. Christmas shows
2. spaghetti and garlic bread dinners (SO MANY CARBS! This is precisely why I gained weight consistently between 2002-2007)
3. skiing
4. the beach

Name four TV shows you like:
1. Trading Spaces I REMEMBER TRADING SPACES! Let's say...Orange is the New Black 
2. Big Brother
3. The O.C. Walking Dead
4. Survivor (although this season sucks) Mad Men

Name four favourite movies:
1. Titanic Gone with the Wind
2. Moulin Rouge
3. Little Women (the original, from the 40s)
4. Elf
(Still like these...I'd probably choose different favourites, though) 

Name your first four jobs:
1. McDonalds (worked counter and drive-thru)
2. reporter at Times&Transcript for the summer in 2000
3. reporter at Telegraph-Journal for 2001
4. reporter at Tribune-Post (2002-2004...ish?)

Name four things you regularly drink:
1. water
2. orange juice
3. milk
4. diet coke

All I drink now is water, coffee, tea, and alcohol. 

Name four ice cream flavors you like:
1. chocolate chip cookie dough
2. vanilla (the good kind) Mint Chip 
3. strawberry cheesecake
4. double fudge something or other CANDY CANE 

Name four random facts about your family:
1. I have a pretty big family (cousins, aunts and uncles)
2. My parents have the same birthday
3. We were all born at the same hospital except my sister
4. I'm mostly British but some German as well.

Name four people currently on your bad side:
1. Trina
2. Vanessa
3. jessica
4. ummm...gordon?? I'm not really mad at anyone...these people just annoy me in general :)

I literally haven't thought about any of these people in a decade, but now it's hilarious because I can look back and remember that they used to give me SO MUCH GRIEF. I don't think anyone is currently on my bad side. How about everyone whose umbrellas dripped on me on the bus yesterday? 

Name four random facts about yourself:
1. I want to own a horse ranch someday My favourite food is sushi
2. I want to write a novel 
3. I need 9 hours of sleep a night and I have tons of pillows and blankets My favourite Friday night consists of pizza, wine, our couch, and sweatpants. I hate going out on a Friday. By the end of the week, I just want to relax. 
4. I am having a catscan on Dec. 16 and it scares the shit out of me. Umm. I hate lobster?

  1. Ohhhh LJ and so many emo posts. Hilarious! Wish I didn't delete mine!

    1. Mine is private for good reason! Sometimes it's great for a laugh but mostly I want to go back in time and smack myself.

  2. I look back on my LJ every once in awhile too and it provides a good laugh most of the time, but there are also so many heartbreaking moments documented there. I'm so glad that I can go back and laugh (and even cry!) about past events.

    1. Me too! And I'm even more grateful for the privacy feature - that shit is on lock.

  3. I totally hate going out on Friday nights too - bugs me when people plan things for Fridays. Don't they know it is pizza and movie/football night?!
