I sometimes feel like there are two Monicas; actually, at least two. But for the sake of this post, let's say two: Pre-college Monica and Post-college Monica.
These two version of me are quite different people. Sometimes they are alarmingly different. One is daring, fairly silly, and attention-seeking. The other is responsible, rather serious, and an introvert. Good friends will see glimpses of Pre-College Monica, and really good friends will force that Monica our from her hiding place. I don't think Post-college Monica is a bad Monica, just an evolved one as life forces you to change. I like who I am now, but I have been feeling as of late that it wouldn't be bad to see more of the old me every now and then.
Whenever I visit my family in Utah, I get glimpses of that Pre-college Monica while I drive around my hometown. I crack up thinking about the funny things I did with my friends, or shake my head at activities I was involved, things you couldn't pay me to do now. So as much as I'd like to get back some of the Pre-college Monica's bravery and creativity, there are a whole of of things about the old me I have absolutely no problem ever seeing apart of my life again.
Here's a list for you!
Ten Things I Will Never, Ever Do Again:
1) Drive backwards through a drive-in.
2) Believe the best job ever is working at Cold Stone because you get to sing to total strangers for two-cent tips.
3) Try out for anything. Like, anything.
3b) Related: Willingly perform in front of hundreds of people.
4) Sell something door-to-door in my neighborhood.
5) Fake injuries and limp around for attention.
6) Dress up in costumes and record videos with my friends on a Friday night.
6b) Think that is a fantastic way to spend a Friday night.
7) Prank call, doorbell ditch, or go toilet papering.
8) Regularly wear matching outfits with best friends for fun.
