07:13 pm: The age meme
If you want to play, say so in a comment. I'll give you an age and you answer the following questions about you at that age.

[personal profile] wild_irises gave me 30.

I lived in: the house in Masonville, which was a nice little place with ten acres of pasture, with a creek in the middle.

I drove: a Chevy Nova, which served us well for many years.

I was in a relationship with: I had a husband and a toddler and the best dog ever and two cats and three horses. Life was good.

I feared: the death or serious illness of someone I loved. I had pretty much stopped fearing nuclear war and ecocatastrophe. I didn't think they were less likely, I just didn't have the energy to worry about them.

I worked at: I taught computer programming in the Continuing Ed department at CU-Boulder, which was the perfect job for me. I was really good at it, I worked a few Saturdays a semester, and it paid $70 an hour.

I wanted to be: a better teacher. A storyteller. A writer. Someone else's mother. Someone else's lover.

Today's poem is Turbulence, by Adrienne Rich.

I had no idea you were teaching programming at CU Boulder. A part of your history I never imagined.

In the Continuing Education Department. It's not like I was a professor.
