My Decade in review

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.

1996 2006
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?
