I am sooooo bored! I can’t wait to start work and school soon. Hmph! Never thought I would say those words!
Out of boredom, I decided to perform my own “Where are they now?” on the magnificent 7.
Remember them? The 7 American gymnasts that made up the American Women’s team in ’96? I had their posters on my wall, their biographies, their little trading cards-I ADORED them. Specifically the amazing Dominique Dawes.
I remember watching the ’96 olympics and cursing my dad for not getting me in gymnastics when I was 3 years old, because I wanted to be just like them and everyone knows you have to start early to be a Gold medal gymnast. I’m not sure what made me think of those girls, but tonight they crossed my mind and I googled/wiki’d all of them. It’s nice to know that they are all doing well and none of them are in rehab for drugs or have released any sex tapes. I even found a documentary and spent the last hour watching it and reliving my past obsession. HA!
A couple of years later the girls were replaced with anime posters, *NSYNC, Josh Hartnett(yuck!), Leonardo DiCaprio, and Prince William.
Who was on your wall? Who did you adore?
