Meme from Ruth

I'm bored tonight. There is so much I could be doing,but when in doubt do a meme...

~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 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 have this one partially done, sitting in my "drafts." I think I'll try to finish it today! Good one. The "Richard Marx" made me laugh... I'm guilty of that, too.

Anita said...

I love this one!
and I too was a lover of richard marx (not in the literal sense... just enjoyed his music)...
I might actually steal this one too.
