Thanks for tagging me, Marissa!
Ten years ago: I was in college for the first time around! I was enjoying my sophomore year at Grove City College. My roommate’s name was Alison, and we lived on the hall of the sorority that I would join that spring. I was working part-time at our student union the Gedunk (or Gee, for short) and loving life as a Biology major!
Five years ago: I had just met Bill (the man I will marry next year) at the beginning of the summer. We were having a great time, attending Yankees games, spending time with family and friends, and getting in as much of the S-E-X as we could fit in. I was working full-time for a local not-for-profit agency as the Program Director.
One year ago: I had just started the last class I had to take (Probability and Statistics) before entering the nursing program. I was working for another not-for-profit, this one the local “branch” of a national organization. I was living here at home with the ‘rents. At the time, we had only one cat Danny and our dog Marti. Bucky didn’t come into our lives until several months later. Bill and I had been together four years and were in a bit of a rut. Little did I know what the future would bring!
Five snacks: Pringles, Goldfish crackers, chips and dip, granola bars, cheese
Five songs I know all the words to: About a thousand camp songs, almost any Indigo Girls song, many country songs…I will list five definites: “Power of Two” by the Indigo Girls, “The Wood Song” by the Indigo Girls, “She’s in Love with the Boy” by Trisha Yearwood, “Watershed” by the Indigo Girls, and “Mr. Mom” by Lonestar.
Five things I would do with $100 million:
1 – Pay off my debt!

5 – Add on to Bill’s house and upgrade some things in it to make it a home that we can raise a family in and grow old together in
Five places to run away to:
1 – My room
2 – The camp I worked at
3 – Target
4 – Old Navy
5 – Maine
Five things I would never wear:
1 – A thong bikini
2 – Well, let’s be honest…any bikini
3 – Navy blue and black together
4 – Off-white and white together
5 – Culottes (done it in the past…as a kid…won’t make that mistake again!)
