      5. You doodled the Take That symbol over all your exercise books…and cried when they announced their split

    Haha, I love this list! I was a huge fan of the babysitters club books – my cousin lived in Canada for a while and passed on her copies of them, I thought it was so cool to have the non-british editions!
