Survey: Have You Ever ____, Part 1

This week, we’re mixing it up with our first edition of the “Have you ever…” survey! It’s a simple and fun setup that we encourage you to also play with your girlfriends during a sleepover or over lunch at school. It’s a great way to get to know little tidbits and facts about your friends that may have never come up before. In that same vein, it’s also an awesome conversation starter!

Feel free to not only answer “yes” or “no” to the below questions, but to expand your answers on your favorites (or all of them!). So for the first question, if your answer is yes, tell us where you’ve been! If the answer is no, tell us where you might like to go when you do travel abroad.

Copy the questions below and paste them (along with your answers) in a comment.

Have you ever…

1. …traveled to another country?

2. …played on a sports team?

3. …met a celebrity?

4. …crafted something or done a DIY project?

5. …gone to a drive-in movie theatre?

6. …read an entire book in one day?

7. …been to the Grand Canyon?

8. …swam in the ocean?

9. …run in a race or marathon?

10. …been to summer camp?

    1. …traveled to another country?
    No, but I’m hoping someday I may get to travel to New Zealand, and various countries in Europe.

    2. …played on a sports team?
    No.

    3. …met a celebrity?
    No, but I’ve met people who deserve that kind of recognition! 🙂 (Examples: My Mom and Dad, my grandparents, Jesus).

    4. …crafted something or done a DIY project?
    Yes; I’ve dabbled in arm-knitting, and I’m currently working on crocheting.

    5. …gone to a drive-in movie theatre?
    No, but ‘dis would be awesome!

    6. …read an entire book in one day?
    More times than I can remember.

    7. …been to the Grand Canyon?
    Nope…it doesn’t interest me as much as seeing Stonehenge or the Parthenon (the one in Greece, not Tennessee) would be. Although I wouldn’t refuse a chance to see it (the Grand Canyon).

    8. …swam in the ocean?
    No, and I don’t care to. I’ve seen too many shark movies. 😛

    9. …run in a race or marathon?
    No, but I applaud those who have!

    10. …been to summer camp?
    I’ve volunteered for a couple of years at a camp for special needs campers. I’ve also gone to a family camp with my family for the last couple of years.

    1. …traveled to another country?
    I’ve been to Nassau in the Bahamas, and I had to get a passport, so apparently that’s another country (I didn’t know that at first), but I have always wanted to go to Africa for mission work, and I might go to Jamaica next year!

    2. …played on a sports team?
    Volleyball, baseball (on an all boys team when I was five–I was the only girl), soccer, and basketball. But none of those lasted because while I was doing all those sports, I was taking ballet classes at the same time, and ballet was just more important to me, so I quit sports in order to have more time for dancing!

    3. …met a celebrity?
    John Smoltz (retired Atlanta Braves player) and Steve Brown (I count him as a celebrity!)

    4. …crafted something or done a DIY project?
    When I was little, I wanted a stuffed elephant REALLY badly, so instead of waiting for my birthday or Christmas, I pulled out some gray fabric, thread, and stuffing I found in the basement and at the age of 8, I made my own stuffed elephant, and it actually looked decent (I remember the nose gave me some trouble, though)

    5. …gone to a drive-in movie theatre?
    No, but I’ve always wanted to.

    6. …read an entire book in one day?
    Yep! The Hunger Games!!!!! 😀

    7. …been to the Grand Canyon?
    Nope.

    8. …swam in the ocean?
    Absolutely! And I came out covered in algae once, which wasn’t all that pleasant.

    9. …run in a race or marathon?
    Never a marathon, but I’ve run hundreds of races!

    10. …been to summer camp?
    I’ve been to summer dance intensives…not exactly the same thing, but sorta.
