for me

At middle school it was all about the sports. I did EVERYTHING that was offered to me. Football, Rugby, Basketball, Rounders, Cross Country. Looking back my parents must have hated the sheer amount of travel they took me on to get to the various matches!

At high school I don't have that many FANTASTIC memories to be fair. By the end of year 11 I had been playing musical instruments since I was first in middle school and hated the damn things and just wanted it over and done with (which showed with my D in GCSE Music!). I do remember Peter Andre coming to talk to us thought about how good he thought he was at music during one lesson. This was during his 'Mysterious Girl' phase so the girls all went wild while us men just rolled their eyes endlessly lol

School closing for snow was obviously a big highlight!

Just seen this thread whilst browsing, surprised there wasn't any other stories at the time, I would say my fondest memory is the school giving some of us some free skiing lessons on the artificial slopes near my school.

Ive never been skiing in the real snow, that's a dream holiday for me but the mrs likes sun sand and unlimited food and drinks holidays lol.

our school never really did fancy holidays, they did the obligatory Disneyland paris trip which my mum couldn't afford and a couple of camping trips which I went on and was class tbf.

Yeah same as my school, as soon as I left it became a sports academy with the classy 3G football pitches and new faculty.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
