As challenged by Dana.

Ten Years Ago:

I had just started university at York in Theatre. I was older than pretty much everyone in my year (20), as well as older than the second year “frosh bosses” assigned to mentor us and keep us in line. I was getting used to a lot of things, including living in Toronto. I would soon really discover the Internet and the wide world of talkers. Whee!

Five Years Ago:

I had just moved in to Chris’ place from the townhouse. Chris, Val, and I moved out, and Beckie and the kids moved in with Steve. Almost overnight my health problems vanished, and I slept better than I can remember sleeping at any other point in my life. I had been at Descartes for three months, and was loving it. James and I were also kaput by then, really, and I think he was in “I am going to enter the seminary” mode.

One Year Ago:

I was still at Descartes, and hating it. Things were really getting into their rut with Andrew and I, though we weren’t unhappy. Gordie would be arriving within a few weeks. Andrew’s family came up to my parents’ place for Thanksgiving, the first real holiday the families celebrated together.


I got up at 5:30 and was at work from 7 – 11:30am. I took the afternoon off and went to a matinee of Serenity with Sherry and Andrew, then out for pho with Andrew. Then I came home, got changed, went and picked up my pictures at Shoppers (SO HAPPY with them), and walked Barney and Gordie with Andrew so that he could get some sleep afterwards. Came home and spent a quiet and tired evening.

  1. Honestly, I don’t remember 10 years ago. Maybe just going back to school again. So, still in London. Maybe teaching high school and definitely working at the bank. Don’t remember much about that at all…
