10 years ago today, I was 16 years old. I didn't have my license and I had no desire whatsoever to drive. I was a Junior in high school with no idea where I was going or what I was going to do. I was editor of the school paper and thought I wanted to be a reporter. I had high hopes of leaving high school, getting a job as an editor and ruling the world; though I had no idea how to get from point A to point X. I figured that by 26, I'd be married, own a house, have a kick ass job and be planning the 3 or 4 children I was going to be a stay at home mom of.
Today, I am 26, and other than owning a house, I was way off. And you know? I couldn't be any happier. I have all the things I never thought I'd need and anything I could want. (Aside from a husband, that is) (I do have an eventual husband, which has to be enough for now)
Where were you 10 years ago today? What did you want out of life? Were you happy? Is there anything left of that 10-years-ago you in the right-now-as-you-are you? Does your life in any way resemble the plans you had for yourself then?
I can't wait to hear your stories!
