Being 17 Again

So… I’m part of the 17 Again blog train started by Kate where I’m supposed to answer the following as though I’m 17 again.

And I didn’t realize until I started answering the questions did I find out that I don’t have a photo of myself when I was 17 :? The earliest digital photograph I could dig out from my hard drive was when I was 18 so I guess that photo will have to do (I look the same then, anyway.)

And so, here’s taking you back to 2002:

After reading the above, you must probably think what a boring person I am! But this is only because I really can’t remember much when I was 17. I could go through my journal and read the entries again but it’s somewhere in some hidden corner of the room Hope you got to know me a bit better with my past questionnaire

And now, taking you even further back into time to 1984, check out Laura‘s meme when she was 17


  1. Cute photo! Fascinating to read all the different answers. Someone suggested answering the same questions from a 2009 perspective..I’m starting to think about it. Thanks for sharing your answers today

  2. Great post. I had difficulty too, but I had to go back a looooooooooong way.
    Woops, there goes the whistle, back on the train.

  3. No, never boring, it’s always interesting to read about different people’s lives. I had a lot of trouble remembering exactly what I was up to, it took a bit of working out.

  4. Great list of answers Naddie, I also wanted to learn to ride a motobike. Still can’t do it though

    Also seems like lots of us want to visit America too.
