my first "tagged"

So my dear friend Megan tagged me.  I've never done one of these before, so here it goes!

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
Hmmm, July 1998.  I was enjoying one last summer before my senior year in college (am I that old?). I was probably working at a temp job doing data entry and listening to horrible elevator music as I glimpsed at the clock every 10 minutes.  Also probably a little panicked about what I would be doing the next summer.  I was also about to have a boyfriend, but I didn't know it yet.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (or tomorrow since it's almost mid-night)?
  • go to the gym
  • clean a fence with my MIL
  • get my oil changed
  • catch up on some emails
  • mail some rebates
3) Snacks I enjoy?
pretzels, chocolate, pretzels and chocolate, ice cream, cherry Hershey kisses, potstickers, cheesy Sunchips, broccoli/carrots with dressing, almonds and dried fruit mix.  (ok, so I mostly added the last 2 so you didn't get a bad impression of me.)

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire?
Give A LOT of it to charity.  Yes, I would definitely do that.
And now is the part where I will come across a bit shallow:  I would buy these shoes and wear them everyday with all the new outfits I bought to go with them, enjoy an all inclusive resort with my hubby, never feel bad about the ridiculously overpriced entrance fees for races, buy too many presents for my nieces and nephews, go somewhere crazy like Italy for a year while my hubby was deployed, buy a Mini Cooper.  An orange convertible one.  And then I would pray really hard that God would take away my materialistic nature.

5) Places I have lived?
  • Virginia (Chesapeake, Suffolk)
  • Connecticut (Groton)
  • Maryland (Annapolis, Aberdeen)
  • Pennsylvania (Grove City, State College, Mann's Choice)
  • California (Loomis)
  • Georgia (Alpharetta, Columbus)
  • Kentucky (Fort Campbell)
6) Jobs I have had?
This is going way back!  Sbarros, McDonalds (insert pic of awkward teenage Karen head to toe in purple uniform complete with matching hat), various temp jobs, camp counselor at WSS, Manpower, more temp jobs, GCC Admissions counselor, Jr/Sr high school science teacher, WSS office manager, substitute teacher, Family Readiness Support Assistant...  are there more?  I don't remember.

This took longer than I thought!  So it's after midnight... seriously going to be now.

I remember fondly the days when you lived in Grove City and I could eat lunch with you in your office and you made us dinner at your cute apartment... it's always great to have you nearby!

Thanks for playing! I think I may have hung out with you a bit that summer since I was in MD as well. Perhaps that's when I ate the plate of cooked carrots (remember that?). Love love love the shoes!!!! On my tag I was going to include shopping b/c I would love to have a shopping spree, but I didn't have anything specific in mind - just lots of clothes! :)
Love you and see you soon...
