i've been tagged

Since back from Montana I have almost caught up on reading all your blogs, helped my parents begin decluttered their house, and started reading the new Harry Potter. I am officially recovering from my vacation (thank goodness I am unemployed!).

Awhile back Marissa "tagged" me so in reply, this is what I have to say:

Ten years ago:

I was 15 years old and in tenth grade in high school. I played volleyball and ran track (800 meters). I played soccer in the summer. I had braces. I was starting to loose my best girl friend (to her nasty boyfriend). I was in the classic high school mood.

Five years ago:

I was 20 years old and a sophomore in college. This was the year my life changed for the better. I started to make better decisions with school and with my involvement with college. I also started a long distance relationship with Jake!

One year ago:

I was in my last year of graduate school and my last year as a teaching assistant. Second semester of school I moved back home to save money and get away from the annoying girls who had moved into the apartment below me. Living at home again was a blessing.


I helped my Mom and Dad clean out underneath the steps...OH MY GOSH. We decluttered, organized and chucked some junk! It took us all day.


Just got back from the DQ and I got to see my friends Meghan and Katie! I caught up on some blog reading and started doing laundry.


I want to start working on my photo albums. Go down to Starbucks and visit friends (and pick up tips). Maybe go to the YWCA. Need to go to a work meeting for my apartment building.

Five snacks I enjoy:

Cookies, Blue Chips, Apples and Cheese, Banana Splits, Walnuts.

Five bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs:

This question I do not think I can answer, I am notorious for not knowing the name of a band let alone the lyrics. I like the radio because I can hear all the new songs.

Five things I would do with $100,000,000:

I would start a card shop, I would buy a house for my parents in Minneapolis, I would buy land and build my dream house, I would buy a hybrid car for everyone in my family, and I guess I would go shopping!

Five locations I'd like to run away to:

Italy, New Zealand, California, New York, Maine.

Five bad habits I have:

I procrastinate, I let my dishes build up, I sometimes will not change the toilet paper roll (just set it on top), I procrastinate, I procrastinate.

Five things I like doing:

Take photographs, have Cosmos with my girlfriends, talk on the phone with Jake, write letters, coming home.

Five things I would never wear:

Really lime green, a jumper, really short shorts, pleated pants, tapered jeans.

Five TV shows I like:

The Amazing Race, Survivor, Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, Felicity.

Five movies I like:

Amalie, Hoosiers, Great Expectations, Swiss Family Robinson, Anne of Green Gables.

Five famous people I'd like to meet:

Oh there are too many! Oprah, Julia Roberts, Prince William, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Aniston.

Five biggest joys at the moment:

My trip to Montana, my relationship with Jake, my blog, my current state of unemployment, my upcoming move.

Five favorite toys:

My iBook, digital camera, my handheld solitaire game, my bike, my new Harry Potter book.

Wow, that is harder than it looks! Hope everyone is having a good day!

Wow Anne, I learned a lot about you right there! I didn't know you had braces, your teeth look gorgeous! I don't know if I could've answered all of those questions and you did a great job. I love your idea of buying everyone in your family a hybrid car-that would be so great. I am sure you are happy to be home after your long car rides. Spend some time kicking back and relaxing-you deserve it before your big move.

lime green?
i would never wear that either!
we have a lot in common on our likes and dislikes :)

Jayleigh said...

Oh that was GREAT, Anne! And I totally agree with the hybrid car. I was checking them out a bit tonight... not that I'll buy a car soon, but it's SO much more responsible. Have fun reading HP. I am going to get mine tomorrow!

very informative. Yeah it would be great to get together, give me a call or email. I am in a wedding in Alabama this weekend, but after that my schedule is pretty open.


Marissa said...

I totally agree with your lime green sentiments! I love learning new things about you! And I hear much harder to write that than you'd think, right???

Cheryl said...

Cool! Thanks for sharing with us.

Isn't the book good? Mmmm DQ. Had that this weekend.

Meg D. said...

Anne that was genius!!!! I may steal that for my blog...I loved it! I didn't know you liked banana splits...hmmmm after all these years....random...

Glad you're having good times back in the city!

Anne said...

Christa---Yup, I had braces. Still have to wear a permanent retainer on my bottom teeth...been there since I was 16!

Still Figuring Out---Oh, how fun!!!

Jayleigh---As soon as I can I am going to buy a hybrid, there is no way I can afford it being unemployed though!

Re-sent Convert---Sounds good. Have fun in Alabama!

Marissa---It is way hard, it practically took me two weeks to complete! ha!

Cheryl---The book is fabulous. At my little DQ we have coconut dillys! They are delicious!

Meg D.---It was so great to see you this weekend! Wasn't that movie (Wedding Crashers) hilarious?!
