sometimes we get so deep into the current chapter of our life that we forget the chapters before so i am going to reminisce to remind myself...some things i remember from those previous "seasons"
I used to wear nice professional clothes (oh how i miss my great ann taylor and express work wear- tailored pants, nice sweater knits, stretch blouses- now i just can't justify it when my clothes go from clean to banana mush in 20 minutes)
I used to give a mean lecture (any of my past students can of course come and refute that claim- especially those who were crazy enought to take a class that met for 6 hrs straight on saturdays!- but this is my blog and i can lead you to believe I was a pretty fun 23 yr old college instructor) Today i realized i really do miss teaching especially my college classes. I really, really love teaching no matter what the subject I love helping other people learn.
I used to be put together-i never spent a lot of time getting ready but, I miss having long bouncy curls each day-now i get the straight in a pony tail hair (yes i am choosing the moral frumpiness)
I loved getting dressed up to go out- I loved going to dances, parties, nothing like cranking up some good music on a saturday night getting all glammed up and doing something fun with your friends.
I used to travel to exotic places and had opportunities to do fabulous things.
My brain used to work quickly- it is a sluggish at best and quite forgetful lately - i think this has to do with sleep depravation (although my parents would attest to my ability to walk right past things without seeing them practically from birth)
