I remember when ten years seemed like a long time, especially because they had a name for that length of time. It was a whole decade!
Ten years ago I’d lived a quarter of a century. Ten years ago I was starting my second year as a computer teacher. Ten years ago yesterday I started a website called Miss Giggles.
In the past ten years I started and finished two graduate degrees. I went on some great road trips, including Mt. Rushmore, Disneyland, and the Grand Canyon. I dabbled in community theater and learned to belly dance. I moved states. I ran two marathons. I did a lot of physical therapy. I got married. I had two surgeries and two miscarriages. I crossed “work chains at a football game” off my life list (and hope to be back at it next year). I had a baby.
And you can find evidence of all that and more on this site. I’ve been a big journal keeper since I was 11. I love the role this website plays for me in that. I’ve truly enjoyed documenting part of my life and my thoughts here to share with whoever wants to see (especially my mom, who checks multiple times a day).
I’m excited to see what I’ll be looking back on ten years from now. Let’s make it epic!
