So What! Ten Years Later!

Hi Y'all! So I knew the the time was coming up... I'm not one for numbers but 1999 was 10 years ago.... It's been 10 years since I graduated HIGH SCHOOL! I'm pretty much content with my life but the damn "what have you been doing for the last ten years packet", made me feel a little empty inside when I first read it.
At first I didn't want to go... Mostly out of laziness, I'll have to drive down to Long Island, blah! But I've kept in contact with most of my "girls" and were turning it into a night out and have plans for after. It's an excuse to get my hair did and flaunt my makeup skills & bat my false eyelashes. Oh its open bar also.
Life is a series of milestones. Your first steps, first day of school, graduating high school, graduating college, getting married, having children & settling down. I tend to live my life out of order and in my own way. I wasn't one of those kids who knew what they wanted to do since they were a teenager. I pretty much figured it out within the last few years. Yeah I went to a great High School, I went to a good college for a little bit, messed up and was dragged home kicking & screaming, took some time off then went to another good school part-time & worked full-time.
I'm still pursuing my Bachelors Degree... If all goes as "planned" I will graduate in December 2010 with a degree in Business, Management & Economics with a Concentration in Marketing from Empire State College. I can't get down on myself because I didn't do it in 4 or 5 years like most of my peers. I've had the opportunity to hold down some awesome jobs in my field while pursuing my degree.
So what I'm not done yet, so what if I don't have a job at the moment, so what I'm single! I'm not going to let those things bother me.
So what I live with my parents. We moved here when I was 22 and still away at school. I know that CT is not where I want to plant myself permanatley and when I figure out where I want to go I'd rather stay at home and save up instead of spend money on a condo in a place where I have no intentions of staying.
I have no reason to look back at the last 10 years with regrets!

Me 10 Years Ago! Don't Sweat the braids w/ the highlights & my darkass lip liner & lipstick

So I thought I would have some fun with the "What Have You Been Doing" Paper...

I was going to mail it back but my mom said something about it being inappropriate for a Catholic High School.....
All that matters is 10 years later I'm happy, healthy and my boobs are still perky!
