Blast from the past....About Me

For you bloggers out there, have you ever gone back to your humble beginnings of when you first started writing your blog? I'm started writing mine in April of 2005! I know....can you believe 4 years I've been rambling on and some of you have stuck around...go figure? :)
Well I was going through some old posts and I found this one called About Me, posted June 17th, 2005. In reading my answers I found it funny that some were the same and how some have changed. So today I'm doing an updated About Me post....2009 style. I'm just adding notes to the original answers....where applicable.

How has your life & goals changed over the years? I would LOVE to hear about it.
Today's Quote
If you see failure as a monster stalking you, or one that has already ruined your life, take another look. That monster can become a benevolent teacher, opening your mind to successes you cannot now imagine.

Isn`t it funny how certain things change but essentially people stay pretty much the same.
