[personal profile] wimsey
Here's how this works. You comment, I give you an age (please tell me how old you are, or risk having to time-travel to find out the answers) and you respond to the questions with what applied to you back then, and what's true now.

[personal profile] serene  gave me 21.  I turned 21 in May of 1971

I was in college that year, my junior year.

I lived in: Larsen dorm at St. Olaf College -- my third year rooming with Kristen Hansen.  That year we had Basil of Baker Street on our door chalkboard, and we'd firmly established our nicknames as Wimsey and Holmes.

Now: I live in a 1960s era Cape Cod bungalow in a near suburb of Pittsburgh.  It's a small three-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath house with a nicely-sized kitchen and a big dining room I don't use.  It has hardwood floors, plaster walls, a decorative iron banister, a basement for storage, and a one-car garage.

I drove: I shared the Veverka-mobile (a Buick Century station wagon) with my sister Holly.

Now: A red Toyota Celica coupe (2002).

I was in a relationship with: Nobody, really.  Not at that point.  I was falling for my first girlfriend, Laura.

Now: Single.  For three years now!

I feared: Nothing in particular. Heights, being hurt, the usual.

Now: I think I'm more afraid now of losing people I love.  Otherwise, nothing has changed.

I worked at: I worked in the computer lab at college.

Now: I work as a technical writer, writing documentation (help, tutorials, training) for mechanical engineering software.

I wanted to be: An English professor.  Or a history professor.  One of the two.  I also wanted to be a mother.

Now: I want to be loved and to be loving.
