My Space: A place for friends

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

It's not throwback Thursday but I am feeling very reminiscent as I start a new chapter in my life. I'll be 30 in January, I'm starting a new job and looking for a home. Whenever I have a lot of life changes I like to look back and see how much progress has been made. I've been cleaning out my storage and found a reference to Myspace that sent me straight down the rabbit hole to the year 2009. I was 23, done with school, and in a weird relationship (who wasn't?)  My favorite part of the social media site were the quizzes because they actually made me think about things I never considered. I took a quiz and deleted all of the answers to see what the difference is now from 6 years ago.
