spewing crap

A meme for now, later a knitting update.

*edit* And I'd been tagged by Dlandra and didn't even know it!

Ten years ago: I was in 8th grade, still flat as a pancake and being made fun of for being the only girl in school with dark hair who wasn't native american. I lived in a town of about 4,000 people in the middle of nowhere. I was very unhappy.

Five years ago: I was in my first semester of college. Trying not to worry about C who had just left for Russia. Taking way too many credits and working part time in a photo lab where I had to print crime scene photos *shudder*

One year ago: I was beginning my last semester of college, basically not caring, trying to keep C healthy and trying to settle into my first salary and benefitted job, while still going to school. I am insane.

  • * Fruit. I love me some fruit, especially grapes

  • * Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips

  • * Fruit Juice. Especially Grapefruit and Cranberry

  • * My sewing machine (every time I use it I think how lucky I am not to have to sew all the clothing we wear)

  • * Kitchenaid Stand Mixer
