As per Jordan’s request. In December of the following years, I was:

2005: Recently had our third child born to us. Still in turmoil in our department at work after our boss was fired for fraud. Getting ready to move into our first own-purchased home.

2004: My parents came out to visit.

2003: We went to Vancouver for Christmas. Finished up my first semester back in school as a new media major, but just finished switching my major to drama.

2002: Was made a full-time employee at the University of Lethbridge.

2001: My practicum at the University of Lethbridge was over, and I was made a project employee (probationary).

2000: Finished up my first semester of multimedia production at Lethbridge Community College. Mary is 5 months pregnant.

1999: On my second job after dropping out of my send year of university three months previously in order to support my family.

1998: Back in Vancouver for Christmas after having moved to Lethbridge six months previously. Mary is 8.5 months pregnant.

1997: Finished my first semester of post-secondary education. I was a French major in an associate degree.

1996: Celebrated 1.5 years of marriage and our second Christmas together. First son would have been born now if we hadn’t miscarried.

  1. Thanks, Kim! It’s a good way to get to know something about people, so I appreciate it!

    Your boss was fired for fraud- eek!

    And what made you go from French major to multimedia production? A sense of practicality?? :)

  2. My boss being fired was the best thing that’s ever happened to me at the university. I have responsibilities I never would have had otherwise.

    You couldn’t really get a French major at the college (colleges and universities are completely different in Canada than they are in the States; they’re not the same thing for one).

    I switched to multimedia after deciding to go back to school. I had been doing web design for about three years previous to that point, and I thought it’d be cool to do it full-time. I had been doing it for only a few months when I first went back to be a French major. And it didn’t hep that my French teacher at the U of L sucked.

  3. Tell me about it. I can’t believe my daughter’s getting baptised next month.

    In 2.5 more years, it will be my wife’s 20th high school reunion.

  4. I love looking back and seeing what things I’ve done in the past. on my blog I showed what I did on a particular day for the last 15 years of my life. I have a journal that I’ve kept now for 16 years, every day. I could tell you what I did today, for example since 1990. :)
