[personal profile] lillibet gave me 27 last week in the age meme going around FB. It's been a while, and remembering where I was back then takes some doing. I was a very different person than I am now. I am much happier with myself now. :-)

Relationship: In the second year of dating my first husband; we got married in 1988, divorced in 1992. It seemed like a good thing at the time. Clearly not. I had no self-confidence or self-esteem until I got rid of him.

Living in: probably in Watertown, on Arlington St, second floor of a two family house.

Work/School: I started work in April of this year, at the Stanley H. Kaplan Educational Center Newton Center office, as an office worker. After 6 months, I was promoted to the position of Manager of the Boston office, which cam with additional duties. Along with managing the office, I got Payroll, Foreign Student Advising (which turned out to be my favorite part of the job), and moving the office (in mid-1986). (Eventually, I gave up the managing part and became a full-time Director of International Student Affairs, and built up Kaplan's foreign student and American medical student populations, with the accompanying F-1 student visas.)

Fear: That no one would love me and I would never get married.

Best Memory: It's hard for me to remember the good things, as the later years of that relationship were so not fun, and I think I've blocked out a lot of what I did while in it.
I loved living in the apartment in Watertown, and I loved having people over. I think my best memory from being 27 was the surprise birthday party Frank threw for me.

Comment on this and I'll give you an age, but only if you want to play, These things are arbitrary.
