explain yourself

taking a cue from fighting windmills, here’s my explain yourself meme:

  1. what were you doing 10 years ago? let’s see, in june of 1998, i was taking summer session classes at virginia tech and living in sin with my boyfriend, mew. unbeknownst to me at the time, we would be engaged in less than a month. we never made it down the aisle.
  2. what are 5 things on your to-do list today? clean up the condo, finish the book i’m reading, buy some chips for the party i’m attending tonight, blog (check!), and hit the river trail for a walk.
  3. what snacks do you enjoy? i can either go sweet or salty, depending on my mood, so for salty i’ve been craving orville redenbacher’s natural salt & cracked pepper popcorn lately. for sweet? anything from buzz or warm, out-of-the-oven, chocolate chip cookies. yummm.
  4. what would you do if you were a billionaire? i’d send my mom on the african safari she’s always wanted, buy my dad a white 1965 mustang (his first car), give my sister & her husband enough so they don’t ever have to work, set my whole family up in homes by the sea, quit my job, go back to school for design or architecture, and donate a chunk of cash to medical research and children’s charities. obviously, this is something i’ve considered on more than one occasion.
  5. where have you lived? baltimore, maryland; waldorf, maryland; white plains, maryland; blacksburg, virginia; annapolis, maryland; crofton, maryland; alexandria, virginia.
  6. what jobs have you had? cashier at a pet store, receptionist at an animal clinic, veterinary technician at an animal hospital, front desk coordinator at a veterinary school, hospital director at an animal hospital, veterinary technician at a medical school, project manager & training coordinator at a research institute, program analyst at a non-profit organization. mixed in along the way, freelance website designer and marketing coordinator.
