A meme

I love doing these things but never do it unless I'm specifically invited/, if you say whoever wants to do this, do it...I won't! I just don't have the time...unless I'm tagged...and I have been! Abby tagged me and now I will comply!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.- Each player answers the questions about themselves.- At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people, posts their names, and then leaves a comment on their blogs, letting them know they've been tagged. Here we go....

What was I doing 10 years ago (April 1998)?
I was in 9th grade at Sumner Hill Jr. High, my city's 9th grade school. Yes, we have a school with only ninth grade. Our high school houses 10-12. The other schools hold K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6. Yes, strange, but it works. I was getting ready to try out for Attache, our high school's nationally known and celebrated show choir. I sang "Outcast" from Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame. It was fun even though I didn't make it.

5 Things on my "To Do" list today/tomorrow:
Go with Mama to The Fresh Market and The Loft
Make cookies for Daddy
Go to the pediatric department resident vs. attending softball game
Study some more in 1 Peter
Get ahead on my peds rotation: start CLIPP cases and buy a book

5 Things I would do if I were a Billionaire:
Pay off my med school loans.
Buy a house
Give more to my church
Go to Greece, the Holy Land, and New York...oh, and Prince Edward Island, the land of Anne
Go crazy on gifts for the kids at the hospital during Christmas

5 Bad Habits:
Biting my nails - I'm not as bad as I used to be, but sometimes things just happen!
Not calling people to do things
Chewing on my lip
Forgetting to pluck my eyebrows
getting defensive

5 Places I have lived:
Alexandria, VA
Clinton, MS
Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
Jackson, MS
Oakridge, TN

5 Jobs I have had:
Church Music Intern
Chemistry Researcher
Medical Assistant - in ophthalmology, family medicin, and pediatrics (all in different summers)

Now, I'm supposed to tag people:
Casey - Blog A La Bradshaw
Kristen - Dine and Dish
Red Dirt Mummy
Paula - The Cookbook Junkie
Jennifer - Weekly Dish

You were in 9th grade? Gosh I feel old. :P

Dee Dee said...

We won't even get into where I was 10 years ago...anyway, I see you're an Anne fan, too. When my mom was still here, we used to watch the WHOLE thing on VHS every Christmas. Good memories!

Abby said...

Thanks for doing this Claire!! Can you believe how much has changed in 10 years? WOW...I know I was shocked! :-)

Emily said...

Anne of Green Gables! I have never read the book, but I was obsessed with the TV movie. I watched it over and over again.

I hope you can pay off your med school loans soon. WHY do schools have to be so expensive??

Red Dirt Mummy said...

Thanks for the tag, Claire. I'll get to it... but not till the move is all finished so it might be a couple weeks.

PS: 9th Grade??? Now I just feel old LOL

Unknown said...

Peabody - Yeah, I was...but now I'm starting to feel old b/c people I remember being born are in high school and college.

Dee Dee - LOVE Anne! Mama read it to me for bedtime stories when I was in elementary school. I could just HEAR Anne when she read.

Abby - It's crazy...even just over a few years.

Emiline - It's one of the few movies I CAN watch over and over. You really need to read the books (there are 8). They (especially the first few) are SO good. I just recently reread them and they still are great.

RDM - That was what I was thinking...just do it when you can! Hope your move went well. Don't're not old, but I understand what you mean...I feel old now that people who I remember being born are going to college and my brother's friends are getting married.

Unknown said...

Jaime - I had no clue that your husband was in medical school! I'm finishing my third year as well. Really looking forward to 4th year, as I've heard it's pretty relaxed!

Jaime said...
