Things about me

I only do one regular meme, but when Little Ms. Bossy says to do something how can you say no. That's how she got the name!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
Each player answers the questions about himself or herself.
At the end of the post, the player then tags five 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.

Ten Years Ago:
I had been living in Houston for three years. I had been dating GKA for two years (I think... exact years are getting fuzzy). Looking back I was in a happy personal routine. I wish I could have some of that back. At work I was still an assistant director, but making the realization that I liked my school despite my frustration with the working dynamic and was probably not picking up and moving to San Antonio by my three year deadline. Many pounds lighter. But also looking back, I can't seem to remember any of the things that are synonymous with the me of today. No photography, no blogging, no social media. For the life of me I can't remember what I did for a hobby. I don't think I had one.

Five Things on Today's "To Do" List
Buy supplies for pie party (I'm getting pied tomorrow!) - Done
Go to bed at a decent hour. Monday night I slept from 6pm to 5 am because I was sick. Tuesday night I didn't fall asleep until well after 12:30 am. Hopefully tonight will be normal.
Hmm.... its weird to write a to do list after the day is done. Can't think of anything else. My days are filled with a myriad of "to do" lists.

Things I'd Do If I Were a Billionaire:
Travel the world in luxury taking pictures
Buy houses in a few select locations
Set up some kind of foundation to give students in my district more opportunities for exposure to the arts
Give money to organizations that need it, especially arts and animals
Volunteer at a handful of organizations in town to keep myself busy
Travel the world in luxury taking pictures (I *really* want to do this)

Three Bad Habits:
Taking my shoes off as soon as I get in my apartment and then leaving them there. There are shoes everywhere. It's the weirdest thing and a very bad habit.
Eating when I am stressed.
Negative thoughts.

Five Places I've Lived:
Panama City, Panama
Harlingen, TX
San Marcos, TX
San Antonio, TX
Corpus Christi, TX
See... I need to travel!

Five Jobs I've Had:
I did some kind of work study thing one semester in college where I cut articles out of papers for the researchers studying the aquifer. My mom always had the belief that school was my job and I was never allowed to have a part time job. We only had one car anyway, so it would have made things difficult. Same thing in college. So my only real job that I have ever had is teacher. I day dream of a new career, but you can see now why it is such a difficult concept to really face.

Five People I'm Tagging:
I'm sorry to say that the meme will die here. I don't have very many blog friends (sadly, just like real life) and the ones I do would probably not do a meme. Instead they would look at me askance while slowly stepping away. But this was definitely enlightening. Now do me a favor and go visit the fabulous Little Ms. Bossy.
