I'm bored tonight. There is so much I could be doing,but when in doubt do a meme...
Here I go:
20 years ago:
~I was 18 years old. I had just graduated from high school in July and was looking forward to the future. I moved from Kitimat to Whistler, BC where my life would completely change in a year.
~I was so excited but scared of moving so far away from home. I did a telephone interview and landed a job at the Chateau Whistler. I was baffled that one of the questions they asked was if I used a lot of soap when I washed.
~I left home with a small suitcase.
~My best friend was(and still is) Shari. She was living in Rogers Pass. Originally I had moved to Rogers Pass with her. I was hired and fired the same day.
~I loved Paula Abdul, U2, Richard Marx, Roxette, the B52's, Guns 'n Roses and Poison.
