Riayn at dancing about architecture invited people to do this meme. since i don't want to do any of the things i should be doing, this is a good excuse.

What were you doing ten years ago?

just finished my 2nd year of university and spent the first 2-4 weeks of summer being homeless (it did result in a trip down the oregon coast with some friends though) before i found out my camp that i'd worked at for ages had found a job for me (after i'd applied really late) and they wanted me to come work on advance crew in the weeks before summer started so i had a home and a job (although almost no pay) for the rest of the summer

You were a chocolatier? How does one get a job like that? And how do you do that job without eating all the products?

my parents owned the company (and the factory was in our house, and then on an addition to the house in the backyard). i was allowed 1 chocolate a day (and when my dad wasn't around i'd sneak a sample or 2 but after a while i hated the smell of chocolate-- still love to eat it, just don't like the smell)
