Just for fun, I went through my mental archive of info for all the things that I have seen and done and experienced in the last 10 years. Mostly, I just wanted to see where I am compared to where I was, and if where I am was where I planned to be. And now, to the list.
|I was 16 years old||I am 26 years old|
|I had a nifty little car||My car crapped out on me recently|
|I was in high school||I was in college|
|I was clean shaven||I have a rackish goatee|
|I was 6′ 1″ tall||I am 6′ 3″ tall|
|Skated constantly||Skate once in a while|
|Wanted to be an engineer||Im a web developer|
|Didnt want kids||Have (and want) 2 great kids|
|Didnt want to be married||Couldnt imagine not being married|
|Concerned with impressing the chicks||Concerned with impressing only 1 chick|
|Wanted to be rich||Still want to be rich|
|Subscribed to Transworld||Subscribe to Maxim|
|Drank Dr. Pepper like a fish drinks water||I have a coffee IV in my neck|
|What I knew could fill a book||What I dont know can fill an eternity|
|Only concern: beer money||Only concern: kids college money|
|Lived in California||Live in Oregon|
|Thought I would live forever||Death stalks me at every turn|
So, a little different from the “then” and “now”. But I’m pretty happy with where I am (although some things could stand to change), but im mostly satisfied with the way things have turned out thus far.
What were you doing 10 years ago? Did you think you would be where you are?
Can you remember 10 years ago?
