10 Years ago around today

I was a sophomore in college studying Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. I knew what I wanted to study as soon as I started at the university and was in and out in 4 years. This time in my life was basically me going to class, going to work, and going to the library to type essays. I didn’t own a computer and took advantage of the 24 hour labs on campus. Working a full time job in college meant having to squeeze in homework at crazy, insane hours of the night. I’d go to class dressed in my uniform (I worked at a Sports Authority) and then go straight to work from school and straight to the lab from work.

Because of ^^^^^, my Coke addiction was for real. I was a regular at 7 Eleven filling and re-filling my Big Gulp cup with the brown stuff. I needed to stay awake.

One of my fave movies. Ever.

I got lucky with my college roommates. Not like that you dirty minded little devil!! I stayed in the dorms my freshman year and ended up living with my roommates the rest of my college life. They ended up being the most awesome girls ever, enough for us to want to stay together all the way through and enough to become bridesmaid material when we all got married. ❤

I wasn’t running but I was more involved with keeping up to date with my other sport addiction: basketball.

  1. Aw, looks like 10 years ago you were well on your way to who you are now! I love seeing these little flashbacks today but I’m afraid mine is a little more boring since I was still in high school 10 years ago!! I’ve been through quite a few changes since then but most most notably I’m a much more confident person now 😀

  2. 10 years ago I was just about to start college – wild. And I think my outlook on health and fitness is 100% different. I used to not care about exercise or diet, and now I am borderline obsessed! Hope you have a fabulous weekend and I love all these old photos : )

  3. Oh, my gosh!! Ten years with your guy? That’s awesome. Can you imagine drinking all that soda now? I can’t even stand it anymore, but I know I used to do it, too – ha! What a fun post, Helly! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. You dont look a day older! 10 years ago I was consumed with wedding planning. The biggest changes since then have been becoming a mother, a runner, and loving my career choice. All of which has led to a more confident me.

  5. What a fun post! A lot changes in 10 years. I had just finished my freshman year of college 10 years ago and now I am married, in my career and running is a very important part of my life! All great changes! Running has been so transformative in my life and I am very thankful for that! Have a great weekend!

  6. Awww! These flashbacks are a lot of fun!

    I’m definitely more confident than I was 10 years ago. Landing the practicum that I completed 10 years ago at this time definitely helped me grow.

  7. Hahaha love the Dumb and Dumber meme!! Crazy to see how what everyone was doing 10 years ago. Love it! Biggest change? I wasn’t a runner – in fact, I was in college, a party girl, and a smoker. Go figure!!!

  8. I love your looking back at 10 years ago and the pic of you and B!! You are super lucky with your roomies too!! 10 years ago right now, I was dating Robyn, living in Boston with friends, and generally having a blast but I had a job and boss I loathed. Thankfully, a few months after that I landed at my current company! It’s funny how 10 years seems like just yesterday sometimes and other times, it’s like it was a lifetime ago!
