Here are the answers!

1. C. Mongolia -- I've visited there, but never lived there!
2. D. Track -- I was able to attend a small high school and as a result got to play on lots of sports teams.
3. B. Seminary Council -- I admired those who were. I actually was in a choir my Senior year and we traveled to California!
4. D. Biology 101 -- I didn't have to retake any classes, thankfully! I actually wrote a few songs, formed a band called "Or Something" and we had a few gigs (emphasis on FEW) -- mainly BYUSA stuff -- never paid. The whole geting arrested is another story for another blog. And, well, the afghans -- that could explain my lack of dates during my junior year!
5. C. River rafting -- I did do this when I came back to Slovenia with Dave, but not on my mission. It was quite common and pretty safe to hitch hike where I was and I had to go on splits once when my companion got sick and had to go home almost overnight.
6. A. Backpacking in Europe. I never did this until I was married.
7. C. Blind Date.
8. D. All of the above.
9. C. A. B. It all happened within 2 weeks in August 2000.
10. B. CSI. (I occasionally watch CSI Miami, but I am a sucker for the Idol).

How many did you get right? (out of 11 including the Bonus). Just curious to see if I stumped any of you! Hope you had fun!

OKAY - Lucky me - I had the privilege of actually living through a lot of those times with you. I had to write them down on paper and then check my answers. I got 9 out of 11 correct. The only one that I missed was number 4. I knew about your band - but didn't realize that you were the lead GUITARIST. I thought you just sang. "Where was I?"
I mean, "Where? Where? Where are you?" Also - the backpacking in Europe one tricked me because I remembered that you and Dave did it - and thought you were considering him as your "friend" and it WAS technically after your mission. But, alas, you weren't even trying to be sneaky! Fooled me. Fun quiz. I may have to come up with something like that for my blog - although - my life is not quite as exciting as yours - I DID also hitch hike on my mission. Totally freaked out my newby comp! =) Fun post Jennie.

OOh, I'm good. I got all of them correct, except the TV show. I knew you liked Idol, but didn't know about the other shows. I also didn't know the exact month bonus question, but hey, that's just a bonus question, so I'll say I got 90% which is an A. Rock on!!!!

Good luck with your 1st sharing time! I was in the primary presidency for 2 years and loved it, especially to be involved with my kids. I also loved that I didn't have to teach every Sunday like primary teachers, and I loved the presidency I served with.

I only got 6 right. I missed #2,#3,#4,#6,#9 (I put c,b,a....but I did get August right) and then #10.
Number 6 was a little tricky for me too. Fun idea Jennie! You have had an exciting life! :)

ducklips said...

Ok, I only got 5 right. That is pretty sad, but since I was not around for most of that, I don't feel too bad.

Hitchhiking was fun in Slovenia, quite the adventure. Plus, every time I smell really good fruit tea I think of riding in the back of that tea truck.

Marilyn said...

Wow. It makes me tired just reading about all you've done! I knew many of them but not all. Life is an adventure isn't it?!

Kako said...

I thought I would do better than I did. I think after high school I pretty much didn't follow your life as I had. How cool that you backpacked in Europe with Dave! Great post!

I got 9 correct (including the bonus) - not bad! That was fun!
