Thanks to John Howell for passing on this particular challenge. It’s a little frightening to peek into the past, but here I am for all to see.

That was an embarrassing hop back in time. I think I was a little angry about work or something, so it would seem. But anyway, it appears that if I had made that bet on whether I’d still be here almost four years later, I would have lost. Here I am, chugging along with some awesome friends.

Speaking of awesome friends, I’m supposed to nominate five others to embarrass the heck out of themselves, so here they are! As always, participation is optional. No feelings hurt if you choose to disregard, but I thought the past introspection could be fun.

  1. Such retro! I think I shall have to read mine before I dare bring it back to the surface again XD

    1. Hah. I say go for it. If anything, it shows how much we’ve all grown. 🙂

  2. Well, thanks for the nomination, friend! I think I’m up for the challenge, and taking a cringe-worthy look back in time. So the idea is, we reblog our first post ever? Yeesh.

    1. You got it, Gwen! Cringey indeed, but like I told Jex, fun to see just how much we’ve changed and gotten better at this writing thing.

      1. okay… I’ll think it over. 🙂 Thanks for including me.

  3. Thanks for nominating me. Charles already asked me and I already posted something else. But I’ll give a look at yours. 🙂

    1. I really enjoyed your post even though it was on a different topic. 😉

  4. I appreciate you thinking of me, Phillip. With my deadline approaching faster than I’d like, I’ll have to decline for now, but perhaps later in the summer. 🙂

    1. No problem at all Jill. I can understand looming deadlines, so don’t even sweat it. I wish you luck!

  5. When the demands of a job weigh us down like a lead apron, commiserating with colleagues helps tremendously. Even for introverts…

    1. So true. We’re good at commiserating. 🙂
