{sunday social...week 17}

linking up again over at {a total waste of makeup} for sunday social.  :)

1.  What do you miss most about being a kid?
 i guess i miss the innocence of it all.  i didn't have the greatest childhood.  i had lots of really rough times and grew up way faster than i should have.  {maybe someday i'll embellish on this...for now, i feel bad doing so}

2.  Did you have a nickname growing up?  What was it? 
i did.  i still kind of do.  my mother wanted to name me Angel.  i was born in 1980 and the story goes that my grandmothers told my mom that Angel was a hookers name so my mom added the A on the end to make me Angela so that "i wouldn't be embarrassed going to school".  i'm kind of happy i'm Angela.  Angel doesn't sound like a women's name.  it sounds like a little kid.  but, to this day, my family calls me Angel.

3.  What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
oooooooooh i don't know.  i wasn't very athletic.  asthma.  i guess i just did what everyone else did.

4.  What did you want to be when you grew up?
i went through phases.  two big things i stuck with for a bit were "marine biologist" and teacher.  now that i've been in retail for 10 years, the marine biologist thing probably isn't going to happen but i am thinking about starting school in january to be a teacher.  :) 

5.  What was your favorite toy?
this is easy.  lilly.  she was my cabbage patch kid.  she had short blonde curly hair with a white bow.  when i got her she was in a blue velvet dress.  i loved her.  to this day i still love the smell of cabbage patch kids.  i lost her tragically when someone stole her from me.  people suck.  i also loved my game boy with tetris and my sega.  :)

6.  What was the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
remember number one?  yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  about that.
