10 Years later

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On May 27th, 2004 I finished high school. It is hard to believe that was 10 years ago today. I remember the excitement of finally being done with public education and looking forward to finally being an adult. I kept imagining to myself where will I be 10 years from now. Its funny to look back and see that what I imagined and what happened aren’t exactly the same.

In high school I played basketball during my freshman year and part of my sophomore year. I joined band during the second semester of my sophomore year and finished high school in band. Band was such a big part of my life then and during the time I thought music would always be with me. Funny how life changes. I barely touch my saxophone today (mostly because I live in an apartment and I don’t want to annoy my neighbor, lol!) However, I also don’t play it since life seems to keep me busy and music isn’t a passion like it was for me 10 years ago.

When I was graduating I imagined that in 10 years I would be done with college, married, have children, and be an accountant. I also imagined that I would live in Louisiana too. Flash forward to 10 years later and I have finished college, got married, hope to have a baby in the next year, and I’m an Accounting Associate. I’ve moved to Indiana too. So far I’m on track with almost everything I thought would happen.

I've also put on weight since high school. Lol!

But there were many things that happened along the way that I never could have predicted. It took me about 9 years to finish college! I changed colleges and my majors many times. I married in my mid-twenties instead of my early twenties like I thought I would when I was 18. I’m not really an accountant but I do some light accounting work. I’ve also lost the passion for music and instead I have a passion for tabletop games. The last 10 years have been an amazing adventure and I don’t regret anything! I am happy and so very blessed. What will the next 10 years bring I don’t know. I can only guess but I’d prefer to watch it unfold.
