I got Interviewed!

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

FB from Fabulously Broke in the City interviewed me for her blog, and you should go check it out! You can find it here.

I have also been tagged for a 5 thing Meme by Debt fighter, so just in case you didn't already know oh so much about me, here goes!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people, posts their names, and then leaves a comment on their blogs, letting them know they've been tagged.

What was I doing 5 years ago?
Hmmm, in 2003. I was graduating high school, taking the summer off (and enjoying staying up until 4 a.m. every night and sleeping in until 3 p.m. every day). That fall I got my job at Subway (have been there ever since) and started saving money and thinking about what I wanted to go to college for.

Five things on my to-do list today ( or things I did today):
1. Empty my 'to-do' folders at work.
2. Clean my desk
3. Finish updating the training manual so I can give it to my boss this afternoon.
4. Update my budget.
5. Continue to work on the budget spreadsheet I am (slowly!) making for Leigh Ann.

Five snacks I love:
1. Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion potato chips
2. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
3. Mandarin Oranges
4. Nachos
5. Water (yes, it's true, I am a water fiend. I don't drink anything else hah)

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. Find myself a damn good financial advisor
2. Get my parents out of debt and buy them a killer retirement home in Nova Scotia and a nice vacation home for my mom on some wind-swept part of England.
3. Invest/Save enough to live comfortably the rest of my life.
4. Buy myself a wicked apartment here in Calgary (like a top-floor loft!)
5. Share the wealth and shop!

Five bad habits I have:
1. Spending money on things I know I don't need but still want.
2. Not returning things I really should return.
3. Being sloppy and unorganized.
4. Eating out when I should just learn how to cook.
5. Lecturing others about finance...

Five places I have lived:
1. Calgary
2. Edmonton
3. Come this fall... London!

Five jobs I've had:
1. Subway Sandwich Artist Extraordinaire!
2. Civilian Coordinator for Police Service
3. ... is it sad that those are the only jobs I've held?

Well there you have it. You want to do this? Then you're tagged! :)
