What were you doing 9 years ago?
I’m skipping to Fall of 9 years ago rather than exactly 9 years ago. Trust me, you’ll like the stories better. I was starting up my Junior year of high school. Wow. That was the year of Dave. Man was I obsessed. (If any real life friends reading this know whatever happend to him, please let me know). It was also the year I stopped trying to fit in, which coincidentally made me many more friends. Typical, no? It was the year I started wearing clothes that actually fit, started dying my hair funny colors, started embroidering my jeans. I was in Mass Media and discovering my love for film and editing. I was making my Frolic’s documentary to try to save the little ex-pizza place where all the local garage bands played. (It didn’t work.) I was writing 20-30 page papers every 2 weeks for this class too. This was the year I did a group project with the aforementioned Dave and another longhaired red headed stoner boy. It had to be on a world issue and after making an impressive list of issues we didn’t want to do a project on, we took our list to our teacher, who was duly impressed with our expansive list, but accepted that none of them interested us. He gave us a good look and said (and I quote), “Well, just looking at you guys, how about prostitution?” I love that story. We looked at each other and said yeah, cool, sure. At which point I feel the need to further explain that I was the most straight laced goody two shoes teacher’s pet you ever ever met in your life. We got our class ranks every quarter and at this point I had been #1 every single time except for one quarter in the middle of my freshman year. My teacher looked at me and these two stoners and said, How about prostitution? Yeah.
What were you doing 6 years ago?
I was in my Junior year of college. I was totally out of place because I had taken most of the classes I was supposed to take as a junior in film school as a sophomore because I had planned to do a study abroad, but it fell through. I had made friends with everyone from the year ahead of me and now I was trying to scamper and make friends with my own class so I would have people to help me with my films. But I had fallen in love for the first time and that made everything ok.
What were you doing one hour ago?
Bawling my eyes out and finally starting to really acknowledge that the second person I ever loved really has left me and won’t be coming back.
Name 3 TV programs you can’t turn off if you stumble across them on television.
I don’t have TV currently. But it’s not really by choice. When I could afford cable my answers would have been:
The Daily Show
Name three things you want to improve upon this year.
My ability to accept compliments gracefully
My job interview skills
My ability to deal with uncertainty
Name three things you can’t live without.
(I’m following Anne’s cue. It says “things,” so I’m excluding humans or animals…)
My computer, including internet access
Dessert, and the ability to eat it out of order
(I’m a communication addict)
Name three things you could…
This last year.
The year before that.
Moving, ever again. After this next time.
Name three things you really like about yourself.
I’m taking more than three and there’s nothing you can do to
After the initial freak out over a disruption, I adjust to new
circumstances fairly quickly. I’m really smart, I like the way I tend to just get things. I have a really good relationship with my family. I’m logical, loving, responsible, caring, and supportive. I’m a really good friend and a pretty good knitter. I’m cute and a total nerd. I’m going to be a kick ass librarian.
