I’ve been tagged!

1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Going to medical school at George Washington University.  This was the summer between 1st and 2nd year, so that means I actually had a break (there’s no break after this one-just straight school and rotations in the different departments following).  So, of course that means that I found a job.  I worked as a research intern at the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biological Research on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.  The lead researcher I worked for was focused on AIDS research,  Dr. Carol Weiss, MD, PhD,  and I loved doing my small part in her ongoing projects.  I miss the research lab.  I feel like I used my brain a lot more back then and I kinda miss that.

I also went to my first quilt show, and got hooked on all the beautiful fabrics.  It was love at first sight.  Now that has taken a backseat to knitting, but I do have some projects that are soo close to being done and I need to finish them.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?

1. Go to work. Pick up my Class A uniform from the cleaners. Go swimming. Work on my SOS08 socks.  Send back my Netflix movies

3. Snacks I enjoy:  UTZ Ripple Cut Barbeque Potato Chips.  Powdered Donuts.

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

Pay off all my debts.  Buy a car.  Buy a spinning wheel.  Buy a house.  Find a good financial planner and invest the rest.  After all this, I’d probably search for a job I really love.  Haven’t figured out what that might be yet, but it will likely involve getting out and doing something physical every day.

5. Places I have lived:

Lanham, Maryland : Wilmington, North Carolina : Tallahassee, Florida : Groton, Conneticut :  Arlington, Virginia  : Heidelberg, Germany  : Fort Belvoir, Virginia

6. Jobs I have had:

Yearbook photographer : Hospital Admissions clerk: Molecular biology intern (Pfizer Pharmaceuticals) : Molecular biology intern (FDA) : Disaster assistance (FEMA):  Ob/Gyn Resident

( I probably never mentioned that my Dad wouldn’t let us get jobs when we were in school.  One of his rules was that school was your job, and he expected results.)
