#Resound11: Then and Now
Categories: #Resound11

Prompt 19 – Then and Now: What was your life like a decade ago? How has your life changed since then? If you’re not feeling wordy today, why not show us some then and now portraits of yourself?

Ten years ago, I was a student. From January to May, I was in my senior year at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana; from mid-May through July, I lived with my brother in Rochester, New York and “interned” at my sister-in-law’s flower shop; and from August through December, I studied on an overseas exchange program at Erasmus Universiteit in Rotterdam, Holland. It was quite a year, and I’ve gone through just a wee bit of changes since those days. Now,  I own two businesses and get involved in new ventures on what seems to be a daily basis. If one thing remains the same it’s that life is ever-changing. Enjoy the comparison…perhaps not much has changed afterall. I have always been me.
