5 Things - yep, another meme

Chel, my amazing jewelry designer friend, who doesn't seem to do memes very often, did one and tagged me in it! I was getting a little tired of memes for a while but this one is different and she is the first to tag me in it. So . . .

1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they've been tagged and to ask them to play along and to read your blog.


What I was doing 10 years ago - 1998

* Going to school with one year away from getting my bachelor's in Visual Communication Design.
* Living with my good friend, Tina, in a really cool flat.
* Probably working hard on an art project for my Typography class, a term paper for my Art History class or spending hours in the photography lab developing black and white pictures in the dark (which was AMAZING).
* In my 5th year of dating Neil.
* Planning my wedding even though I wasn't engaged yet. I had a good feeling it was going to happen soon, though ;c)

Five things on my to-do list today -

1) Go to the Driver's License building and update my new (almost 8-month old) address.
2) Do my taxes (yep, still not done. This happens every year. We work best under pressure, ha!)
3) Test lighting system before I start using it again in April @ the start of my wedding season.
4) Meet with my friend and fellow photographer, Chad, for coffee which we've been meaning to do for like a year now.
5) Help Heather find a baker to make her cake for her wedding.

Snacks I enjoy -

1) red and black licorice
2) dark chocolate
3) ice cream (preferably chocolate)
4) Wheat Thins
5) dried cranberries

Things I would do if I were a billionaire -

1) Pay off the rest of my/our debt.
2) Pay off some of my closest friends' debt.
3) Build a house perfect for my parents on an acre of land with big beautiful established trees. (This is the house I would build them.)
4) Buy Heather a house and buy my brother a house.
5) Give to the church, give to families in need, give to the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in hopes of curing breast cancer.

Five of my bad habits -

1) picking the skin on and around my fingernails (sick, I know)
2) the inability to put away laundry
3) not calling my friends more often - but that is truly because I hate talking on the phone
4) spontaneous shopping
5) not printing my personal digital pictures I shoot

3) Southern Illinois
4) Central Illinois about 10 miles east of #2

Goodness, girlie, your 5 bad habits are my 5 bad habits. And I'm not even joking. You should see my fingers right now. I pick, pick...until they're raw. And where's your ketchup chips on your list of snacks, huh?!? : ) Luv you.

Ugh, my taxes aren't done yet either. Nothing like the last minute! :)

Why is it so difficult to put laundry away? I can't stand to do it either. As a matter of fact, I have 3-4 baskets of clean, folded clothes just sitting on my bedroom floor. :)

dark chocolate, wheat thins & dried cranberries? YUM. I'd eat them all at once!

Thanks for playing. And you're kind with the jewelry compliments. :) I pull my cuticles, too. In fact, I get acrylic nails just because I can't pull my cuticles with them. Try it.
