Way Back When

I was tagged by Andrea to do this fun little meme about what I was doing 10, 20 and 30 years ago.


10 years ago: (1997) I was 20 years old and was spending my first semester away at college, after having attended my local community college. I didn't go too far from home though- I was only about 45 minutes away. I lived in an apartment with three other girls. I never really got close to any of them, as they were there mainly to party and I wasn't. I went to my elementary education and child psychology classes during the morning, worked part time at a day care center in the afternoon, and spent my evenings with Rich (his job had transferred him to a city near the college I went to, so we were still able to see each other most days).

20 years ago: (1987) I had just turned 10 years old and was in 5th grade. For some reason the only thing I can remember about 5th grade is this mean teacher who used to make me stay in from playground to practice my handwriting. I still have messy handwriting- so clrealy that method did not work.

30 years ago: (1977) I was a little over a week old. I can't tell you for sure- but I'm guessing I was doing some crying, some sleeping, and some eating. And I'm quite sure I was getting lots of love, hugs, and attention.

You're welcome to play along if you want to- just leave me a comment to let me know so that I can check out your post.

Thanks for sharing your what your life was like 30, 20 and 10 years ago. I hope H is okay now.

I'm sorry you are still feeling sad! I wish I could help in some way! I loved getting to know a bit more about you though! I think that it is so great that we had the same major, both worked in a day care, etc. You are pretty cool! So glad you shared these things about you--and hey, who needs neat handwriting when you can just type now anyway!

Wow, you missed all that play time for nothing! Thanks for the look into your life!
By the way it's not that I like breaking the rules... I just like to take the more challenging approach to things! (wow, that was good!)
