LJ Quiz Memes! How I've missed you, too!

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.

[ 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.
