Thinking Back, Thinking Ahead 

The other day, Sarah at Advancing the Plot tagged me for my first ever meme! Here's some random information about me:

"The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer."

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was finishing up my sophomore year of high school. It had been a tough and transitional year for me, as I had just moved back to Pittsburgh from South Florida. Academically, I did very well but still had to work to find my social niche. Around this time, I was starting to meet and hang out with some people who I still consider to be my closest friends to this day, so the outcome was a happy one!

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
You don't want to know about my work to-do list because drafting minutes is fucking boring. On my personal list, I'm wanting to buy an athletic-style swimsuit and swim cap for the water aerobics classes I'm taking (yes, it's not just for old ladies!), get some soil and seedlings for two planters on my deck, decide on a restaurant for date night with my fella, trade in some clothes at Crossroads and plan some meals for the week.

3) Snacks I enjoy:
Berries, cookies, dried fruit, peanut butter, pita chips, baked goods.

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy an old house and an electric car, travel a whole bunch, knit a lot and give a bunch to the Gates Foundation and my aunt's scholarship.

5) Places I have lived: eastern and southern suburbs of Pittsburgh; south Florida; Washington, DC; the SS Universe Explorer; Seattle, WA.

6) Jobs I have had:
babysitter, cashier at a movie theater, desk receptionist, temp, development assistant, organizing fellow.

7) Bloggers I am tagging who you will enjoy getting to know better:
I love getting to know all of my bloggy friends, so this is open to anyone who wants to answer it.

In my knitterly life, I've just finished a bunch of projects (which I'll tell you about at some point) and will be finishing another one very soon. I started thinking about what I would want to work on next, and nothing really called out to me. There's so much I could do with my stash yarns, it's almost too overwhelming to decide. Then, my lack of motivation for a new project made me realize what I have to do: I have to finish my oldest UFO.

Lizard Ridge Progress

Lizard Ridge, which I started in September, 2006 and have 11 of 24 squares completed. Yes, now is the time for the afghan.

Of course, I'll need to buy more Kureyon to actually have enough yarn to finish it. It's a shameful task, but it must be done!
