The latest blogroll question:
What were you doing on March 25, 2008?
The rules: You can’t write “nothing.” Were you working? Unemployed, but looking for work? A student? Talk about what you were doing on that day, and why you were doing it.
It’s fine if you don’t remember exactly what you were doing – this isn’t a sworn testimony.
I had to think about this long and hard and even went so far as to check a calendar to see what day March 25, 2008 fell on. My memory just isn’t good enough to recall what I was doing on a random Tuesday last year. :~)
March 25, 2008 fell during the week when I packed up all my worldly belongings and moved them from Arkansas to Virginia. I had just finished training for my new job and had a week to get my goods from Point A to Point B before I had my first day in the office. During the course of the week, I drove more than 2,000 miles.
Tuesday I was back in Fayetteville. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but I was staying with Southern Honey. I suspect we spent some time together during the day and hung out with friends that night. Most of my packing was done; in fact, most of my belongings were in Kentucky at my parents’ house, but I wanted another opportunity to see my college friends.
That whole week was a bit of a walking contradiction. I was excited to see my friends but sad to leave them. I was excited to start my new job but less excited to be embarking on another year spent living away from Southern Honey. And I was looking forward to living in a new apartment and trying out living solo for the first time, but I was definitely not looking forward to the driving in order to get there!
So, March 25, 2008 was not particularly memorable in and of itself, but it certainly fell during a memorable time in my life.
