In an effort to get my creative juices flowing and let ya’ll get to know me a little better, I snagged this off the site of some fellow bloggers:
Then aka 1996 AND Now aka 2006
1) How old were you?
2) Where did you work?
THEN: As a student, at a big university in Virginia *lol*
NOW: For a federal agency
3) Where did you live?
THEN: Medium town, Virginia
NOW: Northeast Washington, DC
4) How was your hairstyle?
THEN: My hair was just past my shoulders and being the typical college girl, I usually rocked a ponytail
NOW: Cut it recently and it’s a little longer than Halle Berry
5) Did you wear contacts?
6) Did you wear glasses?
THEN: I owned some, but I could never find ’em to wear ’em
NOW: Yep, still need ’em for driving
7) Who was your crush?
THEN: My then boyfriend (current hubby)
NOW: Gotta tell ya, I’m still crushing on my hubby. He shows me something a little different each day.
8) Which of your pets were still alive?
THEN: No pets.
NOW: Uh, nah. I don’t do pets. I like dogs and will kick it with other people’s dogs, but no pets for me
9) Who was your boyfriend/girlfriend?

12) How many tattoos did you have?

13) What was your favorite band/singer?
THEN: Wow, it would have to be the Fugees. “The Score” came out in February of 1996 and every party that spring was rockin’ Ready or Not and Fu-Gee-La. Damn I miss them. GET IT TOGETHER LAURYN!! WE MISS YOU!
NOW: I’ve always loved Ms. Mary J, but lately, I’m reintroducing myself to all her albums and LOVING HER EVEN MORE.
14) Had you smoked a cigarette?
THEN: As my girl Whitney would say, “H*ll to the Naw!” My asthmatic *ss would be laid up in the hospital somewhere
NOW: Same as above
15) Had you gotten drunk?
THEN: Uh, yeah, I was in college *lol*. With lots of white folks!
NOW: I may sip a drink if out with my girlfriends, but I haven’t been drunk in about 8 years
16) What kind of car did you drive?
THEN: *lmao* a navy blue, Suzuki station wagon that sounded like a big #ss lawn mower coming down the street
NOW: a VW Passat
17) Looking back, are you where you thought you would be in 2006?
I thought I’d be married to MJ – CHECK! Thought I’d have a child – UNCHECK!Thought I’d make more money – UNCHECK! Thought I’d have finished writing my first book – UNCHECK! So, my focus is to keep my marraige strong, keep pressing on in my career, have a baby and finish my book.
