Sunday Social - Being a Kid

This Sunday, I am linking up with A Complete Waste of Makeup for her Sunday Social! 

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?

I miss having the longest Summer breaks. Isn't it amazing how time would go by so slowly, when you are kid. It seemed like days and weeks would last forever. Now, time just flies by. I also really miss having zero responsibility. Man, Kids don't know how lucky they really are.

2. Did you have a nickname growing up?

I didn't really have a nickname at school. But I went to a small private school, with only 15-20 kids in each grade, and in my my grade there were always 3 Stephanie's. So we would often go by, Steph, Stephy, and Stephanie. I guess I was boring and always picked Stephanie. Some of my family would call me boo or booboo. 

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess? 

I loved four square. Since I went to a small school, we were always doing the same thing at recess. It was kind of like organized recess. One year our teacher was a professional basketball player from Europe, so we ran basketball drill all recess. You would think I would be a little bit better with a basketball. 

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

I have always been one of those kids who knew exactly what I wanted to be, kind of. I wanted to  be pilot and I got my pilots license when I was 16. Then I realized that I love being in the sky, but being a pilot was not for me. I still found a college where everyone was passionate about aviation and I thought I wanted to be an aerospace engineer. I took a few classes and decided that the kids in my class were great, but I needed to socialized with people who were more like me. So I changed my major once to Aviation Business, with 2 areas of concentration; Sales and Marketing and Airport Management. Turns out that is exactly what I have been getting jobs in. I am one of the few lucky people out there who got a job doing what they went to school for. 

5. Did you participate in any school activities?

Yes, I did drama in grade school, softball, student council, sailing, and I am sure there are a lot of others. My mom made sure I had plenty to do when I was growing up. But it is early and I can't really remember school. Kind of sad. 

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about? 

When I was in kindergarden, I didn't want to go to school one day, so I told my mom that I can't go to school because my brain was already too full with stuff.
