1. What were you like in Middle School/Jr. High
I've got to say that that time in my life wasn't all that bad. I was sort of a nerd in 7th grade. I was a "band geek", playing the flute. I had a lot of 8th grade friends, which one might think is cool..but when they're in the band, as far as the whole school is concerned it doesn't matter. LOL. My parents pulled me out of public school for 8th grade and beyond and I really came into my own in that time. Being a former public school kid it made for interesting popularity standards. I think to some I was pretty cool, because I was the unknown, new girl who had gone to the infamous public school. But to others I was not "homeschooly" enough and considered bad, if that makes any sense whatsoever. High school was where I met and got together with my future husband. I went to junior college in my junior and senior year of highschool, Did a lot of volunteer work, and worked on political campaigns. Lots of cool stuff. At the time, in the beginning at least, I wasn't very happy, but I look back on my time during those years of my life and am grateful that that is how things were.

2. What were my favorite past times
Back then it was reading, watching old movies with my mom, hanging out at the pool and doing anything that involved hanging out with my boyfriend.

I was a major Backstreet Boys fan! Major Major!! LOL. I also liked a lot of Christians music like D.C. Talk, Jars of Clay, Plank Eye, Newsboys, Michael W. Smith, All Star United, Carmen.

Gosh, the bangs, the scrungi things for your hair, knee highs...oh man, do you remember knee highs and mary janes?

Oh man, well I think definitely the boys from Backstreet were high on my list of celeb crushes! I mean seriously, lets just all bask in the awesomeness of the late 90s, right?
