Yesterday was the ten year anniversary from when I graduated from High School. I can't believe it has been TEN years already, ya'll.

Where did the time go? I'll tell you I am a way  different person than I was in 2002 (naturally)! Two weeks after graduating high school, I moved into my first apartment (I still have some issues with this but at the time my parents and I didn't see eye to eye on most things). I dated quite a few losers, bounced a number of checks, ate loads of Ramen (and hot pockets, too). Made mistakes; learned from said mistakes. And the beat goes on.

I wish I could go back and make some changes but then I think that those ahem, mistakes, got me where I am today. I learned how to balance my damn checkbook and pay real bills before most of my friends. My "mistakes" helped me find a great guy that I married (after kissing many a frog); planned our wedding that got me a part time foot in the door setting up other weddings (realizing that I love to plan parties!). Made some great friends after having some selfish ones. Brought me closer to my family...

Yes, I wish I had less debt, and more savings. I wish I looked better, and felt better. But mostly, I am happy. Mostly, I didn't know what the future held at eighteen, but I am quite happy with my life (most days) and where it has taken me...Mostly, life is freakin' fab-u-lous.

I do have one question, however. When the hell did I get old?!


  1. I'm only a year behind you , ick!!! LOL Old bags. I just wonder where the time went!

  2. Haha I am on 11 years since high school now, lame!

  3. It's been 8 years for me. I don't even want to think about it. FOUR years out of college seems longer than 8 years out of high school...ugh, FOUR years...

  4. it's been 6 yrs since i graduated :( makes me sad. Lol

  5. I hit my 5 year mark this year girl! I was like WHAT!?!?! haha And I think you turned out pretty great!
