Several Octobers ago...

October is always a big month for me...

This may be a long and boring post. I've kind of highlighted the last ten Octobers of my life. So if you don't know me, you may want to skip reading this and wait until tomorrow when I post my pictures from the weekend!

2009: I trained for the Seattle half marathon...first time running all those miles. My favorite drink was a Starbucks misto with 1 pump of pumpkin spice and 2 pumps sugar free vanilla

2008: We began watching Star Trek Voyager. I got my ears pierced! I ran with Aileen three times a week in the mornings before work.

2007: Matt and I decided to LOOK at cars. We ended up buying a Scion tc. It was a bit of an impulse buy, but I am very happy with it! Pete and Hannah were engaged, and I started getting to know her a little.

2006: On fine day we visited a Pet Smart and ended up falling in love with a little black and white cat, Leo! We had to wait a couple weeks, but we took him home as a little kitten. We started watching Star Trek DS9. Matt and I were sick with sore throat, vertigo and/or pink eye for the whole month!

2005: Anne-Marie, Renae and I went on a trip to Seattle for Renae's birthday. (Actually Anne-Marie and I literally stole Renae out of the bed and surprised her!) The guys all made us dinner at Pete's house. We ate cake which was all smashed from being in my car. There was a particular cute guy named Matt that ended up asking me out the next day! October 2005 was a VERY nice month for me. :)

2004: I was in my first couple weeks of Dental hygiene school...wearing purple scrubs...learning how to probe...learning how to floss my partner's teeth...taking x-rays for the first time. I got in my first "accident." Some mean person smashed my car while I was parked in a trailer park. I started my first art project of making magnets with magazine clippings, bottle caps and diamond glaze. (I still have those magnets on my fridge!)
In my journal 8-13-04: "I am going to attempt to lose weight starting tomorrow" (Some things never change!)

2003: I had a crush on a boy from my first aid class. I was also in love with Orlando Bloom. :) I cleaned lots and lots of super dirty trailers. I listened to lots of Pink Floyd and Def Lepard.

In my journal 8-24-03: "I would also like to lose 10 lbs and get a skinny stomach."

2002: I went to lots of cross country meets to watch my brother race. One of my favorite things to wear was my red heart boxer shorts to run in. (What was I thinking?) I had a crush on "Skater boy" from my Biology class. I watched Sweet Home Alabama in the theater.

2001: 10th grade! In weights class I could bench press 60 lbs and squat 95 lbs. I started liking a guy (who's name I wont mention) that I ended up liking most of high school. He was a very good friend. I took the PSAT test. I always hated standardized testing.

In my journal 8-23-01: "Men are just stupid, immature bums."

2000: (TEN YEARS AGO!) Enjoyed the first few weeks of high school...loved the decorated walls for homecoming. "Kryptonite" by 3 Doors Down was my favorite song. My "thing" was passing out gum to all the boys in my classes. I was a little boy crazy!

In my journal 8-20-00: "Tiff and me are trying to get skinny and fit."


  1. Jenny I really like this post.

  2. Wow. I wish I could remember what I could have done for the past Octobers of my life. It is very interesting. And I have never been able to keep a journal. =(

  3. James told me about the passing out gum phase you had :) haha, what a great Idea.
