Friday Five: Five Things I Was Doing Ten Years Ago

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the lack of posts.  I think y'all understand, though.  I'm trying to soak in all the time I can with this little girl before I go back to work before long!

When I saw today's Friday Five topic, I just HAD to participate!
We're taking a walk down memory lane by sharing "Five Things I was Doing 10 Years Ago!"  This time of year 10 years ago was a pretty awesome one in my life.  Let's take a look at why:

(Thanks Courtney, Cynthia, and Mar for the link-up!)

1. Acting in the school musical.
My senior year of high school, I was in the musical Big River.  It's basically the story of Huckleberry Finn, which explains our old-timey costumes.  I loved my drama classes in high school, as well as being in all the plays.

2. Meeting Fall Out Boy
Ahhhh yes, 10 years ago my obsession with Fall Out Boy was just beginning.  They played at the local rock station's birthday bash, and I was able to meet them just before they became really popular.  Right after I took this picture of them, I turned the corner and sobbed my eyes out because I was just so excited.  #embarrassing

3. Graduating from High School
I can't believe that it's been 10 years since I graduated high school!  It does NOT seem like it's been that long.  This picture is from the graduate reception at church.  I grew up with just about all of these people from infancy and still keep in touch with many of them today!

4. Working as a camp counselor

From 2002-2007, I spent every summer as a camp counselor at Westview on the James.  That place holds such a special place in my heart!  This is me and one of my best camp friend, Daphne, leaving the Friday night program when the campers left.

5. Getting ready for college!
I started college in August 2005.  Here's the way my side of the dorm room was set up.  Ohhhhh, the memories!  Just looking at this picture takes me back to the days of working on homework at that desk,  climbing up to that bed (which was pretty comfy), and the fire alarms that constantly went off.

I was pretty busy 10 years ago!  That was so fun to go through all my old pictures.  I can't wait to see what all the other bloggers were doing 10 years ago, too :)

Question for you: What were you doing 10 years ago?


  1. so fun! can't believe you were just starting college! i was already in law school :)

  2. LOVE IT!!! That dorm room picture totally brought me back... good old VT rooms (and fire drills)! Definitely made me smile today!

  3. Big River is my favorite musical! Arkansas, Arkansas, I love Arkansas... The production I saw had the coolest raft that "floated" around on stage. I think being a camp counselor would be great fun!

  4. Such a fun look back! Which dorm was that? Ten years ago I was getting ready for my oldest son's senior year of high school! :-) He started school at VT in August of 2006!
