I've recnetly run into a girl who is EXACTLY like I was 10 years ago. It honestly seems like a lifetime ago!

So my question is, would you recognise 10 years ago you if you bumped into her/him? And were you very different then Who you are now??

Ya that was my crazy couple of years, 10 years ago. It was just winding down. I was about to meet my future husband and become a mom all in a matter of a few months. Would have NEVER guessed I would be a mom of 2, married and fulfilling my dream of becoming a nurse. I would have laughed at anyone who told be so.

I was a crazy teenager, experimenting with things I shouldn't have been and testing every limit possible. lol. I was a good student though! I can see myself in a lot of teenagers I know... the same problems seem to repeat themselves with every new generation... and they always think no one understands. lol

I was a WILD child 10 years ago. It wasn't until I was pregnant with ds1 that I settled down, stopped partying and travelling. Part of me misses those days, as I still have a wild-child streak in me... but I do LOVE my life with my dh and my children :heart :heart :heart

I was likely drunk and/or high at this time 10 years ago! LOL! Gawd, that was fun.

I love my life now, but I do long for the carefree days of being 21.

10 years ago I was balancing 30hrs+ school, 40+hrs work and a very active social life. I lived off coffee and cigarettes, zero sleep, vacationed several times a year and was loving life. Now I still have to balance everything on no sleep, but the vacation and fun stuff is gone :(

10 years ago I had just met my now husband, I was a bartender at Peppers while he managed Dantes. Went to bed anytime between 6am-8am everyday, all depending on where we went after Dantes closed,lol...usually sat around drinking or went to the casino. Lots of vacations and money spending!! Wouldn't change a thing now though :)

10 years ago right this minute today I was in labour with my son lol. I was 21 about to be a new mom and scared! There was definitely some party days for a couple of years before and although I do miss those party days I wouldn't trade my kids for the world :). Never thought things would turn out exactly the way they have (especially the last few mths lol) but honestly at that time I didn't think they'd be as good as they were (for the most part haha).

I was working in my dream job, getting ready to watch my beautiful niece come into the world while grappling with the fact that I might never get to be a mom myself. DH and I had moved into our first house. It was the best of times it was the worst of times.

10yrs ago I was gearing up to start University , at 18 - and went into a crazy party stage!! I met my now husband when I was 19 but didn't settle down with him until closer to 20 ;-) I had a very lively social life and managed to get through my 1st year of school , alive. hahaha.

I loved every minute of my life back then, but I wouldn't change my life for anything, I have 3, almost 4 beautiful children , a loving husband and an amazing circle of friends. :-)

Exactly 10 years ago this time of year was a big crossroads for me (planned out of course :) )

My youngest (at the time) was just about to enter grade 1, which meant fulltime school. I had decided 5 years earlier I would be a SAHM until my youngest was in fulltime school....so 10 years ago this week I hung up my SAHM clothes and returned back to working fulltime. My kids were 8 and 6 and I had been married for 10 years.

10 years ago I was about to get married to DH after 7 years of dating, had just had my second miscarriage and it would be another 4 years before we finally have our first. It was about to get insanely stressful in our household.

So glad to be past all that!

10 yrs ago, I was 27, mom to only one, who was 6 at the time, worked FT at the CASINO, was with my ex still, went to the bar almost every weekend, see did not party when I was 19, 20, 21, 22, etc. I waited until I was 27. LOL. I LOVE the way my life is today, now married with the love of my life, with 2 of my own, 1 step son, and preggo with our own. :) oh and about to be a grandma for the first time in early 2012. :)

ALL my obstacles made me a stronger person today, my stroke, the abusive relationship I was in, everything. I truly believe what does not kill you makes you stronger.

September 2001 - I was 22 years old... working part time at Windsor Raceway, going to University...

coming up I was about to go through a wild high, and raging low, that would pretty much set the tone for the coming decade. I was about a month away from eloping with my boyfriend I've lived with about 3 years now... things were tough!! His daughters were living here in town and we saw them often, and I just adore them!

In the few years leading up to this, were the years I partied hard... even now in 2001 I stay up all night, sleep 'til noon... I'm still 4 years away from having my first daughter, and getting pregnant is not at the top of my list this year...

..... the thing I miss most from the me of 10 years ago is being able to sleep a solid 10 hours!!! LOL!!

Newly married, with no money to speak of! But enjoying our life together. Working hard (2 jobs), and he was finishing up school.
It's nice to look back & see how far we have come in ten years, and the security we have now.
I'm thankful that we waited a bit before we started our family, because we can give our son so much more than we could have then.
I would never have been able to be a stay at home mom if we started our family right away.
Nor would we have had 5 lovely years to travel together.

10 yrs ago, not much has changed, pay high bills, and work like crazy, only then i was FT at CAS during the day, adn my current place of emplyment FT afternoons... gawd i miss the money.. and to think all i had to worry about back then was if i could make it to the mall at some pont that week...
so i guess alot has changed.
but same house, 3 kids and 2 dogs later, it may get crazy, but i can only see a great future as well, it just keeps getting better.
