  1. I love these meme’s because we get to learn more about eachother.

    You have great advice for your younger self! I could have used it when I was a teenager:-)

  2. Have to agree we learn so much about others when we do these things. LIke you I would probably choose such an eclectic list as well, kinda boring if we listen to the same stuff all the time.

  3. This is a great meme. When things slow down a little for me this is one i may have to come back and do. I enjoyed learning more about you – these are so much fun to read. 😉

  4. Interesting, very interesting. Loved getting to know you better through this! I’m with you on the boy racers, I have been know to deliberately make it so they can’t pass, hehe.
