Kinda Strange To Think

Sometimes I like to think back to where I was two, five or even ten years ago and what I was doing then. Then I remember thinking back then, where would I be and what would I be doing going forward those two, five or ten years. I must say, I never thought I would be where I am today. Don't take it the wrong way, I don't think I'm doing horrible or anything, it's just interesting to me the point I am in my life right now and it's fun to remember where I was at that particular time in the past.

So, I'm curious (and curious to see who will do this), but would you comment or email me and tell me where you were in your life and/or what you were doing during these times?
