By the GAWGUS Miss604 – Thanks for the memories!!

This is the ‘Five Things’ Meme:

Five Things I was Doing Ten Years Ago:

- Graduated from SFU.  Took 5 years instead of 4.  But I mostly paid my own way through, apart from ‘some’ student loans.  I worked part time and attended classes in the afternoons and evenings.  Memory of yucky coffee and late night lit classes.

- Was finishing up my awesome job with the Chartered Accountants of BC.  I was just an accounting clerk, but I LOVED working there.  The people were fantastic and I had such a good time.  I miss my bosses, Allan and Peter.

Not to mention the lovely ladies I worked with.   I miss the Wine and Cheese afternoons.  God Bless all you winemakers at the ‘stute.

- I was one month married!   September 26, 1998 was our  ten year anniversary!!

Despite many familial ‘crisis’ leading up to and after, the wedding was great.   It really showed me how awesome my friends were.   Love you honey!

-  We were living in our FIRST apartment…for both of us, getting hitched was the big move out.  Yes..we were THAT old fashioned.   Or pathetic..you take your pick.

This was our first place on 12th and Spruce…right near Oak St.   We were on the side so it wasn’t TOO noisey…apart from the woman across the way…her bedroom window looked onto our balcony.  She loved the noisey sex.  A lot.   But I loved being near Granville and getting breakfast at Max’s Deli.  Don’t you LOVE our cool furniture!?   

- Got my first sort of real ‘writing job.’  I took a position with the Certified General Accountants of BC.  I ended up really really hating it there.  What a toxic place…sorry guys…it is.    BUT.  I learned SO much and for that I will always be grateful for.  I learned how to put together big conferences, trade shows, etc.  I learned how to write marketing materials and press releases.  It was really valuable.
