An Update to end all Updates

Once upon a time I joined Facebook, but only because Owlie made me. She did so by insisting that I visit her page to see her pictures rather than make her email them to me as attachments.

So later upon a time, after I had joined and gone through the various stages:

  1. Denial (I don't need a profile, I'm not really here!)
  2. Acceptance (Ok, I'll fill in the box that asks for my gender...)
  3. Falling Into It Face-first (WHEE!)

I am now at a point where I'm finding my old high school friends. Bear in mind that it's been Ten Whole Years (henceforth referred to as TWY) since I graduated, so when people ask me where I've been and what I've been up to, I gots alot of explaining to do.

So here, dear Facebook world, is what I've been up to since highschool, in blog form, and in case anyone else asks, just send them the link. Thanks.

Having graduated from high school with both High Honors and Delusions of Grandeur, I enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks, courses in which have led me through adventures in journalism, English teaching, and now, Graphic Design, PR and Corporate Communications. Basically, I speaka da English, and using my trusty Lappy 486, I maka pretty stuff.

At some point, I met and proposed to (yes, I proposed) to the funniest, sweetest, most eccentric goofball of a husband-HF, and three years and two criminally adorable children later, I live in the United Arab Emirates.

Along the way, I have also managed to:

-Successfully serve my appendix an eviction notice
-Busticate my knee in a car accident

Currently I am:

- Huffing and puffing my way through Shotokan classes with HF
- Working as a consultant
- Eating watermelon

That about covers it for me.

So, what have you been up to for the last ten years?

I've been hanging around you for the past 10 years ;) It's been a pretty good way to pass the time.
