Yeah. I know this is boring. And I know I've promised you loads of more exciting posts... But I just got back from the lake. And, interestingly enough, I learned a few things about myself while doing this post.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ummm... Driving around like a maniac with my barely 4 months old drivers license, drinking and partying too much, having loads of extra practices for cheer (we wanted to make state that year but, well there was a freak cheerleading accident - maybe I'll add that to the post list) and generally causing mayhem.

What was I doing 5 years go?
Living up the single life after having broken up with my boyfriend of 5 years (High School sweetheart), working in real estate and making ridiculously too much money for a 21 year old and, y'all know, drinking and partying too much.

What was I doing 1 year ago?
Ummm... Either sitting at home on my ass un-employed or working at a friend's dive bar for peanuts to get myself out of the house, battling some serious depression-type stuff, salvaging my relationship with TheBoy and, shockingly, hardly drinking or partying at all! (I try NOT to drink when I'm upset or sad - Makes it worse every time)

What was I doing yesterday?
Driving home from a weekend of wakeboarding and camping at Lake Shasta, being a good girlfriend and driving TheBoy around to "pick and pull" lots, playing racketball (LOVE racketball!) and watching a movie.

What am I doing today?
Working. Later I'm going to my pre-screening for Boot Camp (Y'all know there's going to be stories about boot camp right?) and then to the gym and then out for drinks (only I'll be having water - more on that later) with German who has just announced their impending flight from the Bay Area into Reno.
