A meme

Olive tagged HSKS5 members for this meme, so here goes--

(Answers are from Dana, not Hydrangea)

1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Spring of 1998 was my senior year of college. I was finishing up classes, was working as an Assistant Resident Director in a residence hall, and was a newlywed. I had recently quit knitting, forever, after several hat mishaps. (Famous last words!) That summer I worked for an educational services company, and that fall I did my student teaching. It was an exciting, stressful year, and one I would not relive for a million dollars.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today: finish grading a set of essays, touch base with a friend of mine who I've been missing at school, take extra clothes for Baby E to daycare, create a handout for the journalism meeting after school, and try to finish sleeve 1 on M's sweater.

3. Snacks I enjoy: potato chips and milk; ice cream; nice, crisp Washington apples; kiwi; fruit-flavored candy like Skittles, Starburst, or Jelly Belly jellybeans; hummus; california rolls; black licorice.

4. Places I’ve lived: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Texas, and Kansas. It looks like a long list; however, all but 6 years (of 32, so far) were in Washington. Hence my love of apples, wheat, salmon, tulips, orcas, evergreen trees, and very tall mountains.

5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire: fully fund public schools and libraries; endow a building at my alma mater; travel the world; buy any book and any skein of yarn I ever wanted, whenever I wanted to.

6. Who I want to know more about: anyone who'd like to participate
