[livejournal.com profile] drwholand folks - Pertinent information below the cut.

So. I swore to myself that my next post would be something real and not a meme, but then [livejournal.com profile] imparfait posted this meme that I really like the look of. Memes... I just can't quit you.

Nameless meme is nameless, but it's about growing up. Childhood Meme? Memories Meme? Why The Fuck Did You Have To Go There Meme? Whatever... Here it is:


1. What year were you born? 1982

2. Where did your parents live when you were born? Lancaster, CA

3. Did you have any older siblings or a twin? At the time, no. When my father remarried, I ended up with two older step-siblings. And later on, I developed a relationship with my older half-sister.

4. What was your first word? My father told me this once, but I don't remember. I think it was "mama."

5. What did your parents name you? Heather Marie. Marie is my birth mother's oldest sister. And Heather... My father says that my mother had come up with a list of names that she was interested in and let him pick one. Heather was the only "normal" name in the bunch.

6. By the time you were two, did you have any toddler buddies? Probably? I don't remember much about being that age.

7. What was one of your favourite toys when you were a toddler? I really loved the boxes things came in. And I had a Big Wheel that I used to ride around the tool store my father worked at. I had a stuffed bear (that I still have, actually) that I really loved. Beyond that, I don't know.

8. Are you able to remember anything specific from when you were a toddler? I don't remember much, but I have a few very clear memories of life with my father. He had custody of me after the divorce, and I remember things like riding on his motorcycle and helping him put together a cage for my rabbit. And I have a few memories of being taken away from him and put into foster care (a subject I've spoken about in a bit more detail here).

9. Did you go to preschool? If so, where? I don't know if I did.

10. Were you rebellious or well-behaved as a young child? Stubborn as hell, but well-behaved.

11. Did you see more of your parents or your babysitter when you were this age? I was probably with a babysitter more, but I don't remember the babysitter at all. And my parents were divorced, so I didn't see my birth mother very often.

12. What was a favourite treat of yours? I really loved milk. Just plain milk. It was probably my favorite thing in the world when I was a kid.

13. Were you able to tolerate horror movies as a four-year-old? I had no desire to watch them at that age. I was pretty fragile, so I doubt I would have handled them well.

14. Did you have a new sibling by the time you were four? I'm the youngest.

Kindergarten onward... )
Stolen from everyone I know (including myself). I haven't done this meme in ages and there are people who haven't been on my flist for very long, so what the hell... I've enjoyed reading these from other people. I try to pay attention to what is going on with everyone, even if I don't comment enough.

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.

first name Heather

age 27

location I'm currently a resident of Springfield, Missouri. For 26 years, I was loyal to the great state of Cahlifohnia, and while I miss it, I don't plan on returning to live there. Ever. I also don't plan on staying here forever, though there's no immediate plan for going somewhere else.

occupation I was having trouble finding and keeping a job after moving here, which made this the perfect time for me to return to school. So I'm a student. I'm not currently looking for any work, save for the occasional application to a video store. If I could get a part time video store job again (I have over 5 years experience), I would work.

partner I don't really have one. And I don't intend to. The closest thing I have to a partner is my sister [livejournal.com profile] nivcharayahel. We plan to live and eventually retire as old cat ladies together.

There's more... Contain yourselves. )

I do so many memes, but never anything like this... I figured what the hell:

Go anon and tell me the following:

1. One secret.
2. One compliment.
3. One non-compliment.
4. One love note, but it does not have to be for me.
5. Lyrics to a song.
6. How old you are.
7. How long we've been friends.
8. And a hint to who you are.

After you do it for me, put it in your LJ and see who does it for you.

Anon posting is on. Feel free to follow the format above or take the opportunity to say anything at all.
