I found this over at Sweet Memes. Here’s a quick way to share your life story!
Where were you in 1987? In school? Working? Single? Married? Attached? What was important to you? What were you doing creatively? Tell us a bit about your life then. I realize some of you were children then…all the better!
In 1987 I was definitely a child. Let’s see, I would have been 5….6 in November, and of course I started Kindergarten in September. I’m sure I was enjoying my last summer before I started school, but I was excited about school. Let’s see, I started kindergarten as a half day kid for 2 weeks, then loved school so much I made my mom put me in full day. I don’t know what I was thinking back then!
Where were you in 1997? What would you like to share about the nineties?
In 1997 I was in high school. At this time of the year I would have just finished up my freshman year. I was in full fledged raging horomone mode, getting in trouble for spending too much time with the boys. If I wasn’t chasing boys I was at home listening to my multiple Backstreet Boys CDs and hanging their posters on my wall. I was still a good kid though at 15/16. I didn’t get wild until the later teenage years.
Where did you plan to be or think you’d be in 2007? Have your realized your goals? What is one thing about your present life you love and one you’d like to change?
My life is definitely nothing like I thought it would be. My goals were to finish college hopefully with a degree in Biology, then I would either be on my way through med school or settled down with a kid or two. My main dream was always to be a mom, then career came second, if I had one at all. I’d prefer to be a stay at home mom, and I wanted a job where I could still work and stay at home with the kids.
Part of my dream came true. I’ve been married for almost 4 years to the most wonderful man in the world, but unfortunately, I’m not a mom yet. Hopefully in the next year or two I’ll have that joy. I didn’t finish the Biology degree, and I didn’t head on to med school, but I’m working at home doing something I love that I’ll be able to continue to do when I do have my little ones running around my feet.
How do you see your life in 2017? Do you have any goals or dreams for your future?
10 years from now I hope to have 2 kids, and a nice log cabin with plenty of land for the dogs to run around. I want hubby and I to be financially stable and enjoying our life with our family. Hopefully by then I’ll be able to say we have more than one bike, and that I’m riding full time as well. That’s something I definitely know will happen in 10 years, even with kids in the picture. I want our kids to grow up around motorcycles and learning to respect them. Hopefully one of our kids will be old enough for their first dirt bike by then!
