Hi, all! Have a meme, courtesy of celandineb !

How this works:

You comment, I give you an age (please tell me how old you currently are - I don't know all of your ages, unfortunately, so I don't want to pick an age for you that is impossible) and you fill out the meme questions with what applied to you back then, and now.

[livejournal.com profile] slammerkinbabe gave me age 23

At 23...

I lived in

A tiny 2 bedroom flat in a converted Victorian type house with my friend from college in a town called Highland Hills NJ.

I drove:

A 1980-something Plymouth Duster. I loved that car, but it got totalled that New Year's Eve, because apparently I didn't turn fast enough at a stop sign. That was right next to a Dunken Doughnuts. Where a cop was. Karma.

I was in a relationship with:

My now ex-husband. He worked at the same place my flatmate worked, and she invited him to a party.

I feared:

Not succeeding as a grownup.

I worked at:

A place called Rainbow Advertising Sales Corporation. I was the Admin for the sales group. It was a job that I hoped would lead to bigger and better things. (Spoilers, it didn't.) It was, however on Madison Avenue in New York City, so I could at least pretend I was living the glamourous life. The commute, via bus, was excruciating.

***

NOW! (48 years old)

I live in:

Pennsylvania, about 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia.

I drive:

2007 Honda Accord. And occasionally my husband's car, a 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

I'm in a relationship with:

My wonderful 2nd husband, my equally wonderful 18 year old son, and two cats.

I fear:

Losing the happiness and security I finally have.

I work at:

I work part time as the assistant to the sales VP in a call center company. It's not a career job, it's just a job so I have money in my bank. It's really nice not having to be the absolute bread-winner now. Also i just realised my 23 year old job and my now job are not dissimilar. How odd.

I want to be:

Gosh, I don't know. I'd like to be able to find moderate success as a writer. A grandmother one day, maybe. (FAR in the future)

Right so if anyone wants to give me an age, that'd be fun.

I'm gonna say '18' just because the juxtaposition between now and then is going to be fun to read. :)
