Thanks to Ali Cross for the wonderful blog award! She's one of my favorite writers on the net, and I'm so honored she chose to give me the Cherry on Top Award:

Cute, right? Anyways, the award requires me to answer this question:

"If you had the chance to go back and change on thing in your life, would you, and what would you change?"

Oh boy. Where to start. I know I'm only seventeen, but I've done plenty of things I'm not proud of, particularly during middle school and high school. It's hard to choose one incident, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say my entire sophomore year.

Parts of 10th grade were awesome. Actually, I'd say it was one of the happiest years of my life, when you add everything up. I had a pretty close-knit group of friends, and the kids in my grade got along well. What I really regret are the lies I told. I regret all our stupid, rash decisions. As a sophomore I had a lot of senior friends, and thus lived a senior lifestyle, complete with broken curfews and weekend parties. Looking back I can't believe some of the things we did. If I had the chance, I would take back and lies and the rumors. It wasn't worth it in the end.

I'd like to pass this on to Liesl, an incredibly talented writer who I met this summer at WIFYR. Her blog is wonderful! Definitely deserving of the Cherry on Top Award.

  1. Kate, that you're even able to look at your past with such wisdom is a testament to the kind of person you are. I know people three times your age who still can't consider their past with such honesty. ((hugs))

    And Liesl is definitely deserving of a bloggy award! She's awesome!
