Thursday 13: Thirteen Ways I’m Still the Same As I Was in Junior High

Thirteen Ways I’m Still the Same as I was in Junior High

  1. I’m a writer. I started my first novel in 7th grade, although I’d written other works earlier. I count that year as my official starting point.

  2. I’m best friends with Sarah. We met in 7th grade, and that was the beginning of the end…

  3. I’m an Anglophile, specifically a Welsh-o-phile. :-) I realized recently that it probably started with Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain series, although Narnia helped a lot.

  4. I read and write fantasy. I may write more erotica and romance now, but fantasy’s my first love.

  5. I’m a Styx fan. Although I credit my official fandom as starting a few years later, in high school, when I did start rabidly collecting everything Styx had ever done, I discovered I’d loved them all along, just never hooked up the songs with a particular band.

  6. I watch Battlestar Galactica! Okay, it’s a different version, but still…

  7. I love bad boys. :-) ‘Nuff said.

  8. My favorite color is purple.

  9. I’m obsessed with office supplies, especially pens and notebooks.

  10. I believe in magic, faeries, true love, and lush, flowing fabrics.

  11. I want a house with a secret passageway, dammit!

  12. Pink bedrooms make me twitch. (Alas, I had one then.) Ditto anything with lime green accents.

  13. I’m easily distracted and sometimes don’t finish things. Like lists…

We have quite a few things in common. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy T13!

I LOVE Styx too! Cool TT. It makes me wonder if I could come up with 13 things that haven't changed since then. It's funny that people don't change all that much... I mean, not about important things. Pink bedrooms... Blech!

Interesting list topic!

Gwen! Another Styx fan! I see them 10-15 times/year.

My bedroom was hideous pink...and then my mother added lime green accents. I twitched a lot. This explains much about how I turned out, I'm sure.
