When I was younger, Myspace, forums and Facebook were my most visited social networking websites. My friends or whoever I followed would always post questionnaires for themselves/others to fill out, to get to know people; This is what the Myspace generation would do, to connect with their online friends. I loved it.
This particular questionnaire here, I found on my blog from back when I was almost seventeen. I just came up with an idea of filling it out as the person I am today, just to compare and give you guys a clue to me when I was a teen and what I’m like now.
I hope that you enjoy this and have a little giggle at how blind and lame I actually was.
