I was tagged for this meme by ReadImagineTalk.  Usually,when I am tagged for a meme it takes me a month to get around to it  Here goes:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

Each player answers the questions about themselves.

At the end of the post, the player then tags five 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 the player’s blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
What were you doing five years ago?

This is going to date me……five years ago I was in my freshman year of college.  I was living on the campus of Douglass College, meeting the best friends of my life and figuring out what to do with my life.

-cook dinner

-water my plants

What are five snacks you enjoy?
chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, ice cream, chocolate.

What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Buy books.  Lots of books.  And publish my own.  Donate to charity.  Adopt animals from kill shelters and foster/rescue them.  Put some away for “later”

What are five of your bad habits?

Biting my nails, being too cheap at times and not cheap enough at other times, being a lazy housekeeper, and I am a softie when it comes to abandoned animals.  Oh, and I kill houseplants.  I do not have a green thumb, but I keep trying!

What are five places where you have lived?

I don’t like being specific online, because I have lived in the same general area since birth.  But I will say Bunting-Cobb (Douglass College) and other various Rutgers dorms.  Other than that, the Jersey Shore. 🙂

Camp counselor

internet lead manager at a real estate company
