Show & Tell: When I was 17

When I was 17...
It was 2001
  • Cost of a gallon of Gas $1.46
  • it was the year Dale Earnhardt died
  • Monsters, Inc. and Shrek were released
  • Hanging by a Moment (Lifehouse) was #1 on the Billboard
  • Minimum wage in SC was $5.15
1. When you were 17, tell us what kind of car you drove, where you worked, and what you were usually up to on the weekends.

When I was 17 I drove a '91 hatchback Mustang. I loved that car! (for no payment of course!) I worked at a fish/seafood restaurant. I was the one who rolled the fried foods in batter. It was a nasty job! I also was a receptionist at a Great Clips. I swept up hair and took names! haha

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.
I was right around 17 in this photo. I had bleach white ugly hair. This picture was taken inside of a truck {obvi} while we were watching the truck pull! I was probably three sheets to the wind too! I need to find a better picture...maybe later.

3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you "grew up."
I wanted to be a suscessful hair stylist. I wanted to work for Great Clips and move up in the company. That didn't work out so well.

4. When you were 17, tell us the kind of boys that you dated. Did you have a type? Do you have a relationship you remember well? Tell us about it.
This was the year I was still in my wild days. I wasn't worried about dating but I did hang out with a lot of guys. I was attracted to the guy with the biggest truck and the ones that always wanted to be outside doing stuff. (no, not that you perv!)

5. When you were 17, tell us where you pictured your life 10 years from then. Did it turn out the way you expected it to?

I was not a planner when I was 17. All I cared about was having money and getting freedom to go and do as I please. Boy, was I wrong! If I could go back to being 17 again with what I know now, I would change the way I did many things. But I am thankful to where it led me today.
