A walk down memory lane…

Last weekend I went back home for a few days and decided to dip into my old “stories” box. Before I was writing all my thoughts out on the interwebs for the world to see, I actually started off with scribbling stories onto pieces of paper when I was 5 years old. It was my earliest hobby and for the longest time, it was my biggest passion and lifetime dream. Back then 18 was my “milestone” age (it seemed so old at the time), so I thought that I’d keep up writing until I was 18 years old and at that point it would officially be time to try to get published. I was a huge Jacqueline Wilson fan (weren’t we all?) and my dream was for Penguin to sign me up and start to publish all of my fiction books.

What I’ve Learned About Relationships & Dating in 23 Years…

When I was 12, I had my first “boyfriend”. This successful relationship lasted for a grand total of ~24 hours. I had had a crush on the guy when I first started secondary school which soon wore off, but a few months after I stopped liking him he decided he’d start liking me and well – boyfriend and girlfriend it was. I broke up with him after 24 hours because I didn’t like him and even more importantly, because I spent 24 hours in a perpetual state of fear that somehow my parents were going to find out I had a boyfriend and I most definitely was not allowed to. What did I learn from this mini “relationship”? Probably that there’s no point making someone your “boyfriend” just because they like you – it’s probably good to consider whether you actually like them too, right?

I’m 23 now, that’s c.10 years since then, and I’ve learned a few more things in that time…
