Numbers

24 months ago

I didn’t used to be a numbers person. I struggled with math in school. I labeled myself a words person and let the issue lie.

When I first went back to work after T was born, I went for an administrative position. I was promoted to an account manager, and suddenly I was using numbers a lot more than before. Now I’m an office administrator at a different firm, and I’ve become more comfortable with numbers.

It’s had it’s effect on me.

I notice I have started calculating time based on what I perceive as major events. I feel as if time moves slowly and quickly, at the same time.

When I need a reality check, I do the calculations:

It’s been 24 months since I got divorced and started this bloggy.

Which means it’s only been 5 years and 4 months since I was married,

and 5 years and 7 months since my son was born.

I graduated from college 7 years and 5 months ago,

and anything before that is one million lifetimes ago.

I’ve been alive for 28 years and 7 months.

In the twenty-four months, I have:

Started 1 editorial business and took on 4 clients

Edited 4 novels and several short stories

Met 3 people on 2 different dating sites

Gone on 12.5 dates

Blogged 333 times

Met 3 bloggers in person

Tweeted 12,200+/- times

Volunteered as a contributing editor for 2 websites

Wrote a 50,000 word novel and started 4 others

Decided to grow my hair out for 5 years

Attended 10 T-ball games

Hung out with various friends approximately 17 jillion times

And spent as much time as possible with my adorable little boy.

Happy Second Anniversary, Unintentionally Brilliant!

And now.

    Happy Happy Blogging Anniversary.

    I used always measure time by grades in school. This happened in the 8th grade so it must have been 1998, etc. Now I measure things by my children. Oh he just started walking so it much have been 2006. =)
