Ropedncr was tagged by Joe (who also tagged Chloe), who in turn tagged me (and Sarah! And GFF!).

Here goes:

10 Years Ago Today I was in the midst of the summer before eighth grade. I went to Girl Scout camp and hated the entire experience so much that I decided I didn’t want to be a Girl Scout anymore. I went to soccer camp and loved it so much that I decided to play soccer in the Olympics. My Wings lost to the Devils in the Stanley Cup finals and it depressed me.

Five Years Ago Today I had just graduated high school. Lucy and I roadtripped to six Dave Matthews Band shows. I worked at a lame-ass department store with the most incompetent managerial staff in the history of the world. I did a lot of preparing for college.

1 Year Ago Today I had just arrived in Denver, where I studied for the summer. I spent a lot of time reading, knitting (I’d just learned), and not feeling half as homesick as I had expected to.

Yesterday I woke up on the air mattress on Aviva’s floor. Showered. Ate French toast for breakfast. Took a flight home. Unpacked. Played in a soccer game that my team won, 2-0.

Tomorrow I have a lot of work to do. I’ll go to the gym, too.
