10/5/1 Years Ago… 1/5/10 to Come


Ever play the game with friends where you try and figure out where you were and what you were doing on the same day years ago?

It’s easier now than it used to be, between the current blog and LiveJournal I’ve got a pretty good idea what was going on for the 1 year (same house, same company, different department) and 5 year (same house, taking time off work to finish my Accounting degree), but the 10 year is still a bit fuzzy (we’d bought the house but not moved in yet and I’d have to check the taxes to figure out which job).

For the next year, I have a pretty good idea of where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing (same house, same department). Five years is a bit iffier (new house? same department?)– but I’ve still got the outlines of a plan. Ten years is right out the window.

But it does make me want to write a letter to myself on the blog, about what I think life will be like. Might be time to sit down and make some grand plans again– or at least some 1-3-5 year plans. 10 years still seems like the far side of the moon. 😉
