1. What did you do 10 years ago? Let's see...10 years ago it was June 1998. Oh boy...that was a rough time. I had just finished a very enlightening/traumatic/too-much-fun freshman year at college in Arkansas and I came back home to live with my parents for the summer. That was mistake #1. I was very angsty and unhappy and unsure of just about everything. I was listening to Ani DiFranco non-stop :) I got a job waiting tables at a crappy family restaurant, and stayed after hours every night to eat cheese steak sandwiches (the cook stayed after after hours, too) and drinking from the bar for free. I got caught halfway through the summer, which made July & August really uncomfortable months to spend at home. Man...I haven't thought about that summer in a long time. I wouldn't turn back the clock for a million bucks!
- Measure for and buy roller shades for the living room so no one can look in at night.
- Get my turn signal replaced (this one's never going to happen)
- Buy a hoola hoop (its my new strategy to get exercise)
- Put quarter round on the baseboards in the whole house.
- Pick a paint color for the den and paint it.
3. Snacks I enjoy: I am powerless against a big bag of chips. Can't stop once I start. Other favorites include hummus & pita, apples & peanut butter, chips & salsa, and those spicy Asian trail mixes with the crunchy pepper things.
- Pay off any outstanding debt for me, my family, and my friends (student loans, mortgages, car payments, credit card debt).
- Do tons of research and figure out some organizations to give some major bucks to.
- Quit my job and do a bunch of traveling....Chicago, San Diego, Portland, Austin, Florida, New Mexico, Utah, NYC, Austria, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Germany, Tokyo...for openers ;)
- Go back to school to study interior design or photography or ceramics or more printmaking.
- Start some sort of business.
- I wouldn't want to move, but I'd fix everything in the house that needs it. And I'd probably also want to get a second home in Florida and in Austin. Okay this is starting to depress me :) Next question!
He flat-ironed my hair (and gasped when I told him that was the first time I'd ever done that), but you get the idea. Today I fixed it my normal way and its bigger and curlier and more me. And it feels so much better! Sometimes change feels so good.
UPDATE: Here's a non-flat-ironed version of my new hair, just for you Lan :)
