I have been super productive tonight. I marinated and made my chicken for my dinner this week. I did three loads of laundry. I cleaned the litter box. I took out the trash. I voted.
What I didn’t do was come up with something to write about. So I decided to look in my drafts folder and see if there was anything interesting in there. Oddly, I have 14 drafts in there. Most of them are a title and nothing else, probably reminding myself to write about a certain thing. That clearly worked well since most of them are at least 4 years old.
This one is from 2008. I have no idea where these questions came from, but they were here and, gum dammit, I’m gonna answer them.
1. What did you do 10 years ago
I turned 37 this year in September. This was a really hard age for me. I feel old. Know what makes me feel old? Thinking about 10 years ago and it was 2004! To me, 10 years ago should be the 90s and I should have been in college or high school. Ten years ago should not have been my sixth NFL football season with the 49ers. That’s what I did 10 years ago. I was Publications Manager for the San Francisco 49ers. I HATED my job and my life. I had started going to therapy and taking anti-depressants because I finally realized I was depressed. I was just a few short months away from losing my job (yay!) and moving back home to Chicago to live with my brother and sister-in-law and a three year old Noah.
Huh. Wow. 10 years ago was kind of a big time in my life.
2. Five items on my to-do list today
Vote, do laundry, make chicken for dinner for the week, clean the litter box, WRITE A BLOG POST.
3. Snacks I enjoy
So ever since I started eating low-carb/Paleo-ish, I don’t snack a lot. If I really eat veggies and protein for my meals, I’m usually good and satisfied until the next meal. On the rare occasion that I do need a snack, I usually choose almonds. I’m also really loving this popcorn and can eat way too much of it in one sitting. Cheese is also good, too. Or hummus. Guacamole and chips. If calories don’t matter, then I would choose either Cheetos, Starburst or some kind of gummi fruit snack
4. What would I do if I were a billionaire?
Well, I’d be really boring and pay off all my debt. HOORAY! Then I would sell my house and move to Canada. I’d use most of the money to help out my friends and family, since once I move to Canada, she’s letting me live in her basement. Oh, and give to charity.
5. Places I would live
Well, the previous question seemed to answer that:
- Toronto, Canada
- Charleston, SC
- San Diego, CA
- Nashville, TN
- Portland, OR or another part of the Pacific Northwest
How about you? Where would you live? What were you doing 10 years ago? Did you vote today?
