Ten, plus or minus
Where were you ten years ago? What's happened since then? What's next?
The most significant events, one per year:
2000 - We all didn't die when the year changed from 99 to 00.
2001 - 9/11, where were you? I was in the shower, my roommates pulled me out just in time to see the second plane hit the second tower.
2002 - The best.summer.job.ever. working in my student union with Toni, Charmaine and Mandy.
2003 - I graduated college, the first in my family since my Grandfather. (My aunt went to nursing school)
2004 - brought us Batgirl, and my life would never be the same.
2005 - I started dating my husband. He wasn't hubs then, just N, the friend, despite conspiracy theories galore, we really were just friends first.
2006 - I decided to go back to school to get my teaching license.
2007 - Got engaged, other stuff happened too, but that was most memorable.
2008 - Got married. Hard to be more memorable than that. I love marriage.
2009 - Bought a house! My first house ever, having grown up in apartments and townhomes all my life, I finally have my own walls!
What's next? I can't imagine where I'll be in ten years, or what will happen during those ten years. I hope it will still find me here, in my house that I love, hopefully with some more friends, a dog (hopefully the same one), maybe a child? (I really don't know about that) Still married, employed, tenured, (closer to home), and happy.
