The 10 Years Ago Tag!

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all well and not slipping too far into a January slump.

I have been feeling really ill this week so I haven’t felt up for taking photographs so I was looking for an idea of something to share with you all this week. On my TimeHop yesterday my first ever profile photo on Facebook came up and it is now 10 years old so I found a tag that asks you questions about yourself 10 years ago, 5 years ago and currently and I thought I would do that today! I’m answering it from the point of January in the respective years as opposed to the year in general. It also means you guys gets to see some nice old photos of me – bring on the poor quality photos!

10-years-ago

10 Years Ago

How old were you?

I was 19. Still a teenager. How insane is that?

I was actually still going to college in Kent – finally getting my A levels!

Where did you work?

I wasn’t working at this time.

Where did you live?

I was living with my parents in Kent.

Where did you hang out?

I think I spent a lot of time at college and in Horsham. Probably also too much time spent at Bluewater!

How was your hairstyle?

As per the above picture! Blonde highlights, layered, fairly long and with my signature side fringe.

Very rarely – I’ve worn contact lenses since I was about 15 but I still wore glasses in the morning and evening.

Who was your best friend?

Glenn.

Who was your boyfriend/girlfriend?

Julian.

Who was your celebrity crush?

I genuinely can’t remember. Who was cool in 2007?

Did you have more guy friends or girl friends?

Er.. I think it was probably slightly shifted more towards guys because I have a few hobbies that were considered more masculine like video gaming. But I think overall the split was probably fairly even.

Who was your regular-person crush?

Julian.

How many piercings did you have?

I’m trying to work this one out. I think I may have had my eyebrow done at this point. Maybe around 20? I am not sure when I got all my ear piercings done!

I think it was failure.
