I Wanna Play!

If you're reading this and have a blog, then you have to play, too!

10 years ago I was:
Living at home in St. Petersburg, Fl; the summer between my freshman and sophomore years of college. I went to Auburn University for my freshman year on a cross country/track scholarship, but the combination of coaching changes, a shy girl, and teammates transferring, I decided to transfer to the University of Central Florida. I was also realizing that my current boyfriend of almost 2 years was not someone I wanted to be with anymore, and was trying to figure out how to let him know.

5 years ago I was:
Living in Orlando, engaged to Marty, working full time at Lockheed Martin and starting my last year of the MBA program at UCF. I was running, biking and swimming, but was not a very strong triathlete at this point. I did well in the local races and was having a lot of fun with the track club we were a part of.

1 year ago I was:
In a horrible contract job here in Raleigh, desperately trying to find a different company. I was in a bit of a slump in the triathlon season but still had the best all around seasons that I’ve ever had.

5 things on my to do list today:
(Seeing as I’m almost done with the day)
1. Eat dinner
2. Take a shower
3. Watch the swimming Olympic trials
4. Cuddle with tassie
5. Go to bed

5 snacks I enjoy:
1. Cheese
2. Peanut butter
3. Most fruits
4. Cheddar Kettle chips
5. Ice cream

If I were a billionaire I would:
Quit my job, by a house on the beach and mountains, travel (all with Marty of course!). I’d also give a lot of it to my family and charities. Who really needs a billion dollars?

6 people I want to have lunch with tomorrow:
1. Grandma Coppola (passed away in Mar of 06)
2. Pete Maravich (great basketball, player died in his 40’s)
3. John & Bronwyn Bates (Aussie friends)
4. Anne, April, Gemma & Stephanie (UCF cross country friends I never see)
5. My mom and dad
6. I always want to have lunch with Marty

5 places I have lived:
1. St. Petersburg, FL
2. Orlando, FL
3. Auburn, AL
4. Collaroy, NSW Australia
5. Cary, NC

5 jobs I have had:
1. Accounting intern
2. Football ticket office (at UCF, 5 year scholarship athlete with no eligibility and they put you to work for 10hrs a week)
3. Inside-Out Sports retail person
4. Financial Analyst
5. World traveler :)

Oh I am so glad you played! Thanks! I feel like everyone I know these days has lived in Florida at some point in life or lives there or is moving there! Sup with Florida??!! I love the kettle chips too- gotta stay away from them after long workouts, the salt gets me every time!

I looked at your Costa Rica photos a dozen times now. A few times I stopped myself because I thought I was going to cry from missing it and my friends there so much! Thanks for sharing your experience... such wonderful memories and glad you had some fun down there!
