My Life in YA & NA!!!

     I came across this as I was blog surfing and saw that one of my favorite bloggers (Jamie over at The Perpetual Page Turner) had made a "My Life in Books" post. Now if you know me, you know I will never turn down a good survey or a good list lol so I just HAD to do this. Plus, I figured it would let y'all get to know me a little more! So, here goes, my life in YA!

Your 16 your old self outlook on life/motto: One Day More (I definitely had to take every day one at a time.)

Then she found out her boyfriend liked me. Tough Life lol Anyways, we took a chance and ended up together for 3 years.)

Family

Something You Could Learn From Your 16 Year Old Self: Control (I was so great at multi tasking and having so many things to do. And now when things get hectic, I can barely keep control of it anymore.  I think my problems just got a little harder to solve though :[ )





Not gonna lie, this was pretty tough, but it was also fun to look back on my life and think about my answers. And Lord help me, some of these I was ashamed to even think about haha But others made me realize how much of a wonderful life I've had and how thankful I am for it! Thanks to Jamie for making this fun list!
