2000-2009, a look back....

Wow, I can't believe tomorrow starts the beginning of a new decade...

I am jumping on the bandwagon of 2000-2009, a look back blog posting.


2000-I was 17 and a junior in High School. I don't think anything too spectacular happened this year. This was the first year that my bbf1 Kate and I visited her sister Kara, who became bbf 2 at UC Berkeley for spring break...this was the beginning of many trips up to my favorite place, the bay area.


2001-I applied to many colleges my senior year and got in to all by my #1 choice, UC Berkeley. I decided to attend UC Santa Barbara. I graduated in June and started college in Santa Barbara in September. I my roomie was from Chicago, hey Meg! We would leave the funniest messages on our answering machine, like "hey, it's meg and jen, we can't get to the phone right now because we are rollin around in the hey. ya'll call back now ya here"(with sweet home Alabama playing in the background) and we would ride our bikes to costco and have to carry back huge boxes of things meant to be bought by families, not two girls living in the dorm!


2002- I started dating my one serious bf besides my now hubby. It was a relationship that lasted for 3 years, and that was about 1.5 years too long, but I learned a helluva lot! I also left UC Santa Barbara after my Fall 2002 quarter, it was too expensive to live up there and my roomies were all pretty much into some crazy drugs...


2003- I moved back home and lived with my parents while going to school full time at a community college and working for the school district as a special education assistant. Rocky relationship with the bf...should have probably ended by now...


2004- Fall of 2004 I started school at UC Riverside. I joined the school newspaper and wrote for the sports department...I even had my own column for a while, hahahaha, the were obviously desperate. relationship with the bf was ridiculously bad, bad, bad...and it is long distance...


2005- I left the school paper and worked in the Athletics Media relations department. I must say I met the most wonderful people that really shaped the last 1.5 years of my college career. Ross, Mark, Kim, Julia, Olivia and Gary were all a big part of the end of my college days. I also changed my major from Psychology to Political Science. I had the most wonderful professors and enjoyed my classes so much more and I had the grades to prove it. This is also the year I finally said ADIOS to the bf... I then spent every weekend at my bff 1's house going out and being to single girls and a few short months later, late one night at a bar with bff 1, aka Kate, I met my scotty-poo...



2006- Wooohooo this is the year I graduated college!I moved back to SD and eventually into an apartment downtown all thanks to my hubby's bff Luke...I went from working at a $10 an hour job to find a grown up career type job...which mean that I had the paycheck to fully be on my own and support myself. Scott left for what was supposed to be a 6 month deployment in September, but it turned into a 9 month deployment. Scott and I are off and on and confused by many things but we cannot let go of our connection and friendship. I also meet Scott's bff from high school, Abby.



2007- In March I went back to see family in Minnesota that I hadn't seen in years! It was a great trip even though I was super sick the last few days. Scott got back in May and declared that he cannot imagine his life with out me. Things are all systems go! We plan a trip to Vegas with Scott's bff Abby. Good friend Vanessa gets married in the Fall. In December Scott is transferred up to Ventura, so begins our long distance relationship.



2008- I begin to hate my job. I do a girls trip to Vegas, it was legendary. Minus the $100 dollars for the room I paid before the trip, I left with $200 in my wallet and came home with $90 still in it, and we were VIP the whole time! Scott and I plan our Christmas trip to Michigan where I will meet Scott's family. (Minus his dad, I met him when Scott go back from deployment) I have a white Christmas for the first time in about 20 years! Great Trip! We get to see Scott's all time favorite team, the Piston's play from super sweet seats, only like 8 rows from the court! By the end of the year I would rather have a root canal than go to work!


2009- Since I did a whole post on this I will just recap: New Years in Vegas with Abby, our Vegas partner. Engaged in March, birthday and married in April plus i leave my hated job too. July-visit my parents in Guam. Start new job in October, get new puppy in December. Sista and bff get engaged in 2009 too!

2010, you are the summer of weddings!
