We are almost at the 10 year anniversary of this blog.
10 years ago I was dating someone from Microsoft who let me read Scoble’s book “Naked Conversations” and he encouraged me to start a blog. I am shallow, and he was hot and handsome and so I did as instructed.
10 years ago I was working at LAMP Community – helping homeless adults on Skid Row in Los Angeles. I had just transferred from working with my favorite boss, John Best , to doing IT for LAMP. Needless to say, I got to see all the workings of the internal politics and happily left within the year.
I have since gone on to work for MAXIMUS Inc and the county of Los Angeles – still focused on extremely low income people. The difference is that now I am less low income and the politics are more pleasant.
10 years ago I had just moved from Southview to Fairview in Arcadia and only had one daughter, but was still pining away for my childhood crush. I have had the chance to reunite with DC Nelson in the past 10 years, lived with Donald for a few of those years and am now raising a second daughter. the lesson is that if they “Got Away”, just let them stay away. Also, don’t let anyone who works at WedBush convince you that they work in finance so it is safe to loan them money.
10 years ago my mother was alive.
10 years ago I kept saying I wanted to go to Graduate School, and even was accepted into La Verne’s Gerontology program, but I did not attend. I am now into my second semester at USC for my M.S.W..
10 years ago I drove a little red Scion. It is currently parked in my driveway. I still love it.
10 years ago I made up stories for Jacquelyne, my daughter. Now I publish little books on Amazon.
The years have changed, situations have changed, but I have not.
