Past Mistakes

AmyD tagged me for a meme. I really enjoyed doing it because I came across a lot of posts (and memories) that I had forgotten about; two and a half years provides a lot of material to dig through.

Archive Meme Instructions: Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you’ve written... but there is a catch:

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are, what you’re all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone had written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know. Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better...and don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

  1. For my family post, I'm choosing the one about the birthday card my father bought me last year. It's really the only post I have about my parents where I'm not pointing and laughing, and just reading it again brought tears to my eyes. And as fun as it is to laugh at my elders, there's something about the articulation of my anger that I still appreciate. (By the way, I still have the card.)
  2. Admittedly, my friends are not a huge part of my blog. In my posts, they serve as supporting characters who, well, support. And make me squirt drinks out my nose. Ooh, look at that, I just cheated!
  3. Some post-party musings really helped me define myself. This was a pretty pivotal night that completely overhauled my outlook on dating and improved my self-esteem.
  4. Even though Scott's and my initial "I love you" turned into a source of contention, I still treasure the moment. And he finally admitted he remembered all along.
  5. Ever been out on a date and locked yourself in his bathroom to have a panic attack? I have. And here's a good post about my struggle of moving to the big city. Ooh, look at that, I cheated again!
I tag Enny-Pen, Paige Jennifer, Peach, Single Girl, Tilly, and you!

THANK YOU for doing this - it was such a great opportunity to read some of your old posts that I hadn't read yet. I think I might start reading your site from the very beginning now, so I can fill in all the blanks. You're such a great writer!

Your "I love you" post was sooo sweet! It made me think of the first time my man said he loved me. He was so afraid to say it first, but he did :)

Hey, Sarah - I tagged you in my post. Great topic and I was searching today.
I liked your family one. My father is remarried and my step mother picks out all the cards for me. I usually just rip them in two and toss them. I don't know why they bother. You are brave to let your anger go -I'm not sure I could let mine go.
