This one, I stole from Wendy Johnson at WendyKnits. As usual, if you'd like to do it too, consider yourself tagged and let me know so I can read!
1. What was I doing ten years ago?
I was 21, it was 1998, so... I had just gotten my nose pierced. I had also just finished up my fisheries internship at Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota, Florida. I was back in Miami by this point, living with and taking care of my quadriplegic friend, Marc, by being his night nurse. I was recently SCUBA certified and finessed myself into a job at the dive shop that certified me when I saw that they were desperately in need of my help and organizing skills! When I left just a few months later to start graduate school at the University of South Florida in Tampa, they didn't know what they were going to do without me! I know they managed, but it was good to feel so useful and needed. See, I actually used to have a life and not be so lazy!
2. What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
Well, you'll have to come back and read the blog tonight to be privy to that!
3. Snacks I enjoy:
Chocolate. Ripply chips with Heluva Good French Onion dip. Chocolate Chip cookies. Ice cream. Brownies. The usual baddies.
4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Be debt-free and investing like crazy. Travel the world, constantly and repeatedly. Share the wealth; I'd be very philanthropic. Wield my financial influence in lawmaking matters: I want laws passed banning smoking and making recycling mandatory nationwide, at the very least! I still can't believe we don't have that... Did I mention travel? I'd travel a LOT.
5. Places I have lived:
Monroe, NY. Baldwinsville NY. Aiken, SC. Coral Gables, FL. South Miami, FL. Sarasota, FL. St. Petersburg, FL. Tampa, FL. Panama City, FL. Guam. Virginia Beach, VA. Think that's it.
6. Jobs I have had:
Babysitter. Cashier at Big M Market. Cashier at Winn-Dixie. Cashier at Publix. Office cashier/back office staff/front-end manager at Publix. Night nurse to quadriplegic. Alumni relations at University of Miami. Fisheries biology intern. Catering. Dive store employee. Legal Secretary. Mommy. Nonprofit Director.
