Remember When Everyone Used to Fill Out Those Facebook Note Things?

A couple of days ago I wrote about how I am uncomfortable with sharing too much of my personal life on this blog. I share the  happy stuff but the dark stuff I refer to only briefly and never really in detail.

Browsing through some of my favourite blogs I came across this post by Natalie, creator of Tails of a Mermaid. She shares a similar sentiment here and to make up for her lack of sharing, she completed this little questionnaire thing.

So I thought I’d do it too.

Why not, right.

Then I decided it was far too long for my attention span, so I went and had a look at all my old Facebook notes and found this to do instead.

(Four reasons I cannot remember or even stab a guess at, I labelled this note ‘mustard’. Small ‘m’. 2009 Kirst was odd.)

For funsies and to compare, I’ve left my twenty-year-old-self’s answers and my new answers (relevant to me now or since then) are in bold.
