99 stupid questions: 2010 & now.

Before I could blog, I did...*shudders* Facebook Notes. And before that? Bebo. I also dabbled a little in MySpace, but was never cool enough to do it full time... 
My Facebook Notes were like little snippets of my life a lot of the time; trainee blog posts. Then now and again I'd do quizzes. Y'know, the ones you'd copy and paste from your cooler friends, then possibly lie on for the sake of seeming more badass? Yeah. 

So after seeing the utter babe Arora Appleby's recent redoing of a Bebo quiz, I thought I'd dig through my Facey B archives and attempt one of these cringey questionnaires again. Wish me luck! 

Oh, and I've added in a super flattering photo of me aged 16 in 2010 to kick this off - complete with Hollister shirt, newly formed boobs pushed right up, over-plucked eyebrows and badly dyed ginger hair...you're welcome. (I miss our movie nights, Katie!)



WHAT WAS YOUR...

1. Last beverage = a shit ton of water, all day long. 
2. Last phone call = a drunk accident, last night.
3. Last text message = Kasim. That bitch.

8. Kissed someone and regretted it = Yes.

**

Okay so, the feels doing this quiz the second time around...it was repetitive af, and boring in places. Like, good for reflecting and being mindful of what you are up to and what you've done, but goodness me it was a little anal. But 16 year-old Grace loved this shit, and I will say a lot of things against that foolish younger me, but I won't dismiss her love of Facebook Notes. After all, it's where the actual blogging began...
