Get to Know Me Better

Bryan tagged me with this meme. Just spreading the love here.

The rules are:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1) What was I doing 10 yrs ago?

I was in the insane world of the hotel industry. In eight years, I worked in five different hotels. In spite of my executive level position but because of the high profile nature of most of the hotels at which I worked, I managed to log an average of 14 to 16 hours a day, often working six days a week. Not a way to live, IMO. It got in the way of everything– fitness, time with family and friends, relationships, leisure time, hobbies, etc. It also, dare I admit, led to one glorious year of serious drinking. (And I don’t mean sodas.) I am grateful for the skills I attained from my years in that industry but was more than elated when I finally decided to get out.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

  1. Workout. (Heading to the gym in 15 minutes.)
  2. Eat a waffle. (Because I feel like it.)
  3. Shop for a new pair of jeans. (Because twelve just ain’t enough.)
  4. Organize my storage unit. (I’m probably not going to do this.)
  5. Write. (Well, here’s a start…)

3) Snacks I enjoy:

  • carrots
  • granola bar
  • Doritos
  • pretzels

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

  • Travel around the world
  • Set up my own art design studio
  • Split my time between New York City and Tokyo
  • Engage in charitable causes

5) Three of my bad habits:

  1. procrastination
  2. impatience
  3. Doritos

6) 5 places I have lived:

  1. San Juan, Puerto Rico
  2. St. Louis, Missouri
  3. Napa, California
  4. Cannon Beach, Oregon
  5. South Orange, New Jersey

7) 5 jobs I have had:

  1. Executive Assistant Manager (Hotel)
  2. Rooms Executive (Hotel)
  3. Assistant Rooms Executive (Hotel)
  4. Rooms Division Manager (Hotel)
  5. Assistant General Manager (Hotel)

8 ) 5 peeps I wanna know more about:

  1. smysore
  2. DAVE ID
  3. nectarfizz
  4. curlywurlygurly
