First Things First

So I've decided that I might, a little bit, kind of enjoy doing link-ups. They're just so fun! Other bloggers have much better ideas than I do about what makes a good post. I'm always entertained when I read other people's stories.

So today, I am linking up with Halie and Hallie for First Things First.

{Links and pictures to come, promise!}

First thing I do when I wake up in the morning
Well, this is a loaded question. I split my time between two places, so my morning routine is different depending on where I am. Although I guess they both have one thing in common:  I always have to pee the second I get out of bed. I feel like most people do that. Does it still count?

First heart break
My first "heartbreak" was in second grade. I had the most perfect little boyfriend named Andy. I mean, he was really perfect. One time we were outside on the playground and I was freezing, so he let me wear his coat! We made it through most of second grade together, being perfect. Then. He moved. I knew I would never see him again. Devastating. Although technicall we never broke up before he left. I guess we're still together?

My first real heart break didn't happen until college. I almost wish it would have happened sooner so that I would have known what to expect. Oh well. I had been dating the same guy for almost three years on and off. Even though we had a lot of "offs" there was one time when I knew it was definite. I was completely devastated. I shouldn't have been, but tell that to my 19-year-old heart. Loooooong story short, this ends with my mom coming into my room at 1:00 a.m. (because she could hear me crying) and taking my phone away. Wow, that's all actually really embarrassing. Whatever, I was heartbroken so it's totally excusable.

First prom or school dance
Alright, I went to a lot of school dances in my day, starting in elementary school. But I don't want to talk about those; I want to talk about my first prom. Prom at my high school was always combined juniors and seniors. I was a junior. I went by myself, but not. I was in a group of kids who were all older than me (they were so nice to invite me to be part of their group. After all, they were popular and I wasn't.), but I didn't have a date. I'm gonna go ahead and give you all the long version of this story because that what you want, right? So. I had asked a boy a year younger than me if he wanted to go as friends. He told me he couldn't because his mom said he was too young to go to prom. Boo. I got over it. Then this group asked me if I wanted to go with them. We're talking a group of 10 of the most popular kids at school. Who the heck would turn that down?! Anyway. I get to the house where we were all meeting the night of prom only to see that the kid I asked is there! With someone else! WHAT? He gave me this spiel about how his mom felt totally comfortable letting him go with this other girl because he's known her forever, blah blah blah. Fine. So there's roughly a bajillion of us hanging out together. Cool. We get to prom, and I pretty much stole my date back. We spent the entire night dancing together because his date didn't want to dance with him. Actually, we were the LAST two people on the dance floor at the end of the night. So that's my prom story. Oh, PS - I won Prom Princess. So there's that.

So sweet that your first heartbreak was in second grade? Or maybe sad? I'm pretty sure I didn't know boys existed until I was 15 so mine definitely wasn't that early. And where is this link up? I want to link up too! I just found your blog and I have really enjoyed your writing and getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!

I ALWAYS wanted to be prom princess, but my school wanted everyone to feel "equal" and never elected one.

How un-90's of them...

thanks for linking up with us:):)
