Anyway! Gina over at Daily Express and I were chatting about the BSC, as you do, and both wanted to share our BSC themed posts today - so be sure to check her blog out as well! Her blog is a daily read for me and there are only like 5 fashion blogs that I can say that about, so you know she's awesome.
So I did this quiz (thanks Buzzfeed) to tell me which BSC member I was....
And I was like..
First off, you need to read this Buzzfeed article with all the amazing outfits from the BSC covers. Seriously, right now. Hilarious. And the person who wrote that summed up my thoughts exactly:
Normally people get cooler and more fashionable as they age through childhood, but there’s often a dip just before high school where even the most confident tween goes through a terribly awkward phase. The “all-new” Mallory is the personification of that moment. We are all Mallory Pike, and we’d all rather not think about it (source).
Mallory had mono and I had glandular fever - which are apparently the same thing but we don't call it mono so I don't know. Her first boyfriend was Australian, and that is where our similarities end. Ok, we both wear glasses but I only wear them to read.
So if I'm not Mallory - and I am not Mallory - who am I?
Am I Claudia? Yeah no. My logic as a child was Claudia had black hair, and was very creative in her style and crafty stuff. I am zero percent creative and I was blonde. So... sorry Claud. Although I totally rocked the side pony for most of my childhood and even as an adult (see above). But yeah, not Claudia.
Am I Dawn? Oh how I wanted to be Dawn when I was growing up. We had some similarities that made sense to my silly mind. I had long blonde hair, and I grew up on Dawn Street. I mean, fate right? I wasn't all hippy like Dawn though, and obviously didn't grow up in California which was a huge part of her personality. I did love the beach, which is how I saw California so I was almost there. Close, but no Dawn.
I did love Alex Mack though.
Am I Stacey? Heck no. Stacey was far too cool, and the only similarity we had was the blonde hair. Her real name was Anastasia, and I loved that name as a kid and used it all the time in my 'books' that I, you know, wrote. I guess Stacey had two homes like me, choices to make and always has people and places to miss. Of course that wasn't me as a kid, but now as an adult. Plus, I just went to NYC, so basically besties, right Stacey?
I'm not Jessi - remember, I got kicked out of ballet.
Am I Mary-Anne? Gina let me know of another quiz to find out which BSC member I was - eager to acquit myself of the Mallory label, I gladly took it. I answered it now as an adult though, and not as how I was as a kid. Now, I feel like I am definitely Mary-Anne. Or who Mary-Anne would be now. She seems a bit like me - quiet, sensitive, shy, likes to read and watch classic movies. Of course I am also loud, bitchy and bossy but not at first. I always liked Mary-Anne because she was Kristy's best friend and they had been friends since they were little - I always wanted a friendship like that, and Mary-Anne felt like my best friend too. Plus, Mary-Anne loved babies.
Ok, so if you were a BSC lover like myself, you probably know who's left. The best one. The one with the great idea, the one with the dodgy dad, the tomboy. I always thought of myself as Kristy. For a couple of reasons. First and foremost was the most obvious - her name was Kristin. Um, end of story to a 10 year old. These books were written for me. Yeah she lived in that America place, but it's ok. I could get there one day. I would get there one day, and then I would be living my babysitters club dream life. On top of the name, even though she went by Kristy and her name had an I instead of an E, she was a tomboy with brothers (waves! hi!) and was super bossy - I never made the connection as a child, but shit I was bossy. I grew out of the whole tomboy thing, but I'm still pretty bossy.
Ok, so which member are you?
