Hello! We’re back with day #2 of 12 Collabs of Christmas!
Today I’m with mydailyinkling, and this is the second part of our ‘My First Time Tag’! You can check out the first part on her blog by clicking here.
16. First favorite book
mydailyinkling: My first ever favorite book that I remember was the Junie B. Jones series. I used to read every book and at least twice.
Me: my first favorite book was Sans Famille by Hector Malot. I was about 8-9 when I read it and it was just wow.
17. First character you wanted to marry
mdi: The first character I remember wanting to marry (in a tv show) was Ron Stoppable from Kim Possible. I used to think that I would marry him and it made me really jealous of Kim Possible. However, I also wanted to be Kim Possible, so I was really faced with quite the predicament when I was 6.
Me: Hermione then, Hermione now.
18. First time you failed in class
mdi: I never actually “failed” a class. I didn’t do well for a long period of time in a few classes, but I never failed. The one time I do remember not doing so well was in the third grade. According to my parents, I apparently almost failed but the only reason they didn’t hold me back was because I was switching schools.
Me: neither did I! I was always a top student. My grade never went lower than 15.6, and that’s on my worst. However, I do remember some minor failures in small tests. I once got 5/10 on arabic dictation in around 4th-5th grade, and even though I passed I was crying in the way home. So pathetic I know.
19. First award/honour received
mdi: When I was in the third grade, I was a cheerleader. The very first award/trophy I received was a little cheerleader trophy from that year. I was one of the best on the team and they gave me a trophy for it. I was so proud of my 6 year old self.
Me: our school does something very cute where they make a graduation ceremony when we finish kindergarten (yep, we’re in the same school from kindergarten till senior year). So I guess my first honour was this certificate:
20. First country you visited outside your own
mdi: I have, unfortunately, never been outside of the country. I really hope to visit Nicaragua with my nana and do a mission trip with her soon. I really want to go to Australia, also.
Me: SAME. I want to visit pretty much the whole world. France, the UK, Australia, the US, Spain, Italy… One can only dream.
21. First time you lost your parents in a store
mdi: I don’t particularly remember loosing my parents in a store, like the first time it happened. However, there’s a joke between my parents and I about Target. See, somehow, every time we go into Target, my step-mom always ends up getting separated from my dad and I. We spend a good majority of our time there just looking for her. So we try to keep a close tab on her when we go.
Me: I don’t really remember the first time either, but I do remember that it happened more than once. One time I vividly remember is when I panicked and went through all the isles and asked strangers and I was just a kid. As usual, that lasted for about 15 seconds.
22. First time someone you know died and affected you
mdi: I just lost my grandfather less than a year ago. He was the first one I knew in my family to pass away. I called him bop-bop and he was my step-dad’s step-father. He and I weren’t particularly close or anything, but I did love him. I’m still getting used to just saying nanny instead of nanny and bop-bop.
Me: I remember when I lost my grandpa, so vividly. I remember being at his house with my cousins just a day before and not having a clue, I remember my dad telling me the next morning while I was still in my bed, I remember seeing mom on the couch, not crying, just sitting there with the saddest if smiles. I remember then seeing glimpses of her hysterically sobbing in my grandma’s kitchen while my other grandma tried to pull me out of the mourning house and take my mind off everything.
I just don’t remember saying goodbye, because I never did.
23. First thing you do in the morning
mdi: The very first thing I do when I wake up is turn off my stupid alarm. But then I usually come out and sit on the couch for about 10 minutes and fall back asleep. Then I’ll wake up again and grab my phone. I usually sit on my phone for about an hour or so before I finally start school work (cause I do online school; so I get up at 8 and start at 9).
Me: go back to sleep.
23. First test & grade you’ve had this semester
mdi: First test of the semester was a test I took in Spanish and I made an 85% B.
Me: I think it was a math test and I got 10/10. THAT DID NOT REPEPAT ITSELF FOR THE REST OF MY MATHS TESTS.
24. First time you met an online friend in real life
mdi: I have never met an online friend in real life. I’ve never gotten too close to my online friends, simply because I’m not allowed to have social media.
Me: me neither. There aren’t even many people to meet, you just kinda feel like you know everyone. Also, I think it’d be super awkward because obviously I am (this isn’t a very awkward blog for nothing).
25. First phone you broke
mdi: I got my first phone at 13, an iPhone 4. I had it for three years and never dropped it one time and then my step-mom dropped it and it shattered the screen, only about 6 months ago.mIt still worked, though. And then I took it on a road trip with me during the summer and I dropped it in a red solo cup of Dr. Pepper… But I also just cracked my new phone really bad a few weeks ago. I’m getting it fixed this weekend.
Me: I never broke a phone, but I assisted to many breakings. One of the most notorious is when we were like 7 and we had just gotten a new phone and my little sister tried to look inside the screen. Literally INSIDE it. I don’t think details are necessary here. Let’s just say we had to throw the phone away afterwards.
26. First social media account
mdi: My biological mom let me have a MySpace when I was about 7… Bad parental mistake on her part, but it didn’t matter cause I never used it. Then my biological dad and my step-mom let me have a Facebook but that only last about a day before they decided I still wasn’t old enough. Then at 13, when I got my iPhone, they let me have an Instagram that only last about 2 months. And now I’m social media-less…..
Me: I think it’s Facebook. I was 8. Literally all my friends had facebook at 8. Parents had no idea back then of the dangers of the internet, because quite frankly we had JUST found out about the internet and it was the cool new thing (we’re talking Lebanon here. It’s a miracle we got internet before our twenties).
27. First thing you ever googled
mdi: I don’t remember, oddly enough. It was probably something like Ron Stoppable’s age or something, haha. Or like, cute free puppies in [state name]. I really don’t know but I’m sure it wasn’t “How to conquer the world in three easy steps.”
Me: people know that? I really don’t remember. It must have been ‘games’, though. Yeah, I’m pretty sure it was games. I’m also pretty sure I was so amazed that there were so many games online and even thought it was a prank at first.
28. First time you won something
mdi:Hmmm… I probably won like a Minnie Mouse at a fair or something? I don’t know.
Me: um… Who knows. I was very cute so I probably won people’s hearts when I was a baby.
29. First blog post
mdi: My first blog post was an introduction to my blog, lol. My second one was my attempt at writing a short story. I didn’t really get into “blogging” until recently. My first couple posts were writing and such. I didn’t start blogging until September, and I started my blog in July.
Me: it was on the 27th of July, a day after my birthday. The post was actually written the day before, but I didn’t even have my blog yet. I was just so pissed off at everyone at the time and thought ‘this is it. I need to blog.’ You could still read it I guess.
30. First time you got on stage and had your own role
mdi: I did dance when I was 9-11 and I only danced in about 5 recitals. But, I never had a solo. We were working on a duet with a younger friend of mine before I had to move. I was so looking forward to that duet because after a duet, you typically got a solo if you’re good enough. And I. Wanted. That. Solo. But I never got one.
Me: we all participate in year-end dances in kindergarten so I guess it was then. I also got a narrator role when I was in grade 2. And then last year I said two of my poems in a poetic night. But the first time to perform in a play/sketch is THIS MONDAY AAARGHH ME AND MY FRIEND ALONE IM GONNA SCREW UP.
OH AND I ALSO HAVE MY FIRST SOLO NEXT WEDNESDAY IM DEAD.
