10 years ago... - December 31st 2009, 07:15 PM

It's the end of the decade, what did you think about the world 10 years ago? What did you want to be 10 years ago? What did you care about 10 years ago?

Yes, this is a major tweet on twitter, I thought it would be interesting to share between TeenHelp users!




10 years ago I had never used a computer or heard of the internet.

10 years I was 11 years old, living in another country, and all I cared about was what I was going to do after my homework!

Wow 10 years ago I was 5. Things were so easy and carefree then. When I was 5 I wanted to be a teacher a nurse and go into the airforce. I was a big dreamer. All I cared about was my friends and family and prolly what I would do with my friends that day.

10 years ago I was 9, and quite possibly the quietest child.
10 years ago I had yet to discover that music is my passion, but I knew I wanted to help people.
10 years ago, I was still the same person I am today, just now, I talk more.

10 years ago I was 6
10 years ago I was in Zimbabwe - before the corruption
10 years ago I didn't understand about life
10 years ago I was carefree =]


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Re: 10 years ago... - January 10th 2010, 09:54 AM

I had just turned nine...but i remember I was starting to find myself a little. I had a group of friends some of whom I'm still friendly with now, although it's a different kind of friendship. I was still really motivated in school and really into the work. I was starting to get my first crushes and care more about what I looked like.. to be honest I don't think I really had much idea of what was going on in the world (all i remember from that age was a huge train crash or something in London...?¿ was that then?¿)
I've changed a lot as a person now, which is understandabale I suppose :P Still know a fair amount of the same people but a lot of my opinions and views have changed vastly..

10 years ago I was 8. I was obsessed with running around outside and had a serious tan. I loved playing netball and watching any movies where there was some kind of monster eating people (Nice parenting right.) 10 years ago my Dad had a new family and I barely saw him (10 years later, different family, same situation). 10 years ago I was about to meet my best friend, who I'm still best friends with today.
