So- it's been 10 years since I graduated from high school- wow- 10 years and 10 days to be exact! I can remember May 8 like it was yesterday- but so much has changed since then! In 1997 I had no clue about purses period! I mean I wouldn't be able to tell you the difference between a Coach or an LV! Today I am filled with quite a bit of knowledge- but not even nearly enough to be able to "authenticate" by myself! haha~ I was about to turn down acceptance to Arizona State University and an internship for our Senator Ted Stevens in Washington DC- I did that for a BF who was a very bad guy and now that I look back- those are two regrets I have.... not the BF- I grew a lot as a person because of that relationship I ended up going to our in state University in Anchorage and failed miserably! I focused on friends and didn't want to participate in class! I think I rebelled because in HS I was a straight A student who participated in EVERYTHING! Band President, Honor Society Treasurer, Student Council Rep---- so many other things too. Anywhoo! I guess this year is called a "hallmark" year because of the 10 year mark I have passed! wow! Today I am married almost 5 years and we have a 5 year old son- I've lived the military life- my DH was a Marine from 2001 til 2005, he joined before 9/11 and his dream was fulfilled! wow~ who would've guess 9/11! I've gone through 2 deployments~ high five MILITARY WIVES- stay strong women! Y'all are the heart of our armed forces- I pray for you and your families! So- now I have 3 more semesters until I'm finished with my Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences! I'm going to Medical School probably most likely the Fall of 2009 and want to be an MD! I've wanted to be an MD since I was 5. And I remember that day when somebody asked me what I wanted to be----- haha~ anywhoo- thanks for reading if you still are! What were you doing in 1997? How old were you? Were you into purses? What kind? How have you evolved since then?
