So I am on holiday in Seattle for the next 2 weeks. A bit of a working one, but I might be able to get some knitting material along side my love of where I call “home” in the US. If nothing else photos will be in the uploading soon 🙂 In the meantime another one of the memes that has been making the rounds…

1. What was I doing ten years ago:

A newly minted 21 year old… I had recently moved back to Seattle and was back at UW for my junior year of college, after a semester long joy ride to hell I decided to take. Silly girl I was back then 🙂 I was in summer school diving back into what really interested me oblivious to much else. I was working at a pool teaching swim lessons and enjoying my first summer living on Greenlake (a place that will always hold a dear place in my heart) and trying to figure out how to live life.

2. What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:

– Check DMV renewal requirements
– Organise the photos on the hard drive
– Cosmetics shop at Nordys
– Relax
– Start to look at my GRE books…

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Nuts, string cheese, pretzel chips, red licorice, fruit leather, baby carrots, edamame, and so much more. I am a muncher…

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

After purchasing/building a house for myself and those I love, as well as a vacation house… I would buy me a new DSLR and set of pro-lenses, put most into savings (I am boring and fiscally responsible like that), set aside enough to do my PhD, travel a whole hell of a lot with the killer photos to prove it and create a charitable foundation to help fund development and women. Then I’d probably volunteer whatever time I had left. Oh and I might do a bit of shopping 🙂

5. Places I have lived:

Scottsdale, AZ; North Platte, NE; Lexington, Kentucky; Seattle, WA; Grado, Italy; Chapel Hill, NC; Firenza/Siena, Italy; Paris, France; New York, NY.

6. Jobs I’ve had:

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor/Water Aerobics Instructor; Personal Trainer, Victoria’s Secret Stock and Visual Display Store Manager, Administrative Assistant, Marketing Specialist/Manager, Graduate Student, Attache aux Cabinet, Research Assistant, and Project Officer.

Tag… your it 🙂
