@missy @rambo @lyxzen I used to follow sports a lot more than I do now. Football and tennis are the only ones I seem to get excited for anymore. It hasn't always been the case though. New England sports did indeed have a great impact on my life for many, many years. Mostly for futility, until the 2000's started. My teams seemed to...

I was a huge fan of Trot Nixon....the dirt dog.  Also, since I played catcher I liked Rich Gedman and Tek of course.  For the B's, yeah Ray Bourque was the man.  I also liked Adam Oates and Craig Janney.  My favorite on the current roster is Torrey Krug.  I think I'm showing my age with this reply, but at least I didn't bring up Bobby Orr and Gerry Cheevers.

Killer Celtics lineup, watched a lot of them on youtube last summer; gotta love Wade Boggs with all his crazy rituals!

@lyxzen @missy @rambo My celebrity crushes would have to have started in the 70's with the girls of Three's Company.

The girls were gorgeous, and never wore bras. It was love at first sight. I've seen episodes in more recent times and wondered, "Why did I like this show?" Then Chrissy and Janet start moving, and I remember. I was crushed when

You'll make many choices in your life, many small ones and some momentous ones. Some few pivotal Choices that seem insignificant at the time. My freshman year in college I had work/study. Different areas of the campus had different jobs. Maintenance, security, library, computer labs, cafeteria, res life, etc. I procrastinate, so there were 2 job placement areas left to fill for me...

When I left school (which feels like it's centuries ago), we still had compulsory military service in Germany. However, you could choose at this time to do military service or alternatively do community service. Never being a big fan of the military, I chose the latter and got assigned to a retirement home where I spend the following 13 months as a care-giver for mostly bedridden seniors. It was tough, I grant, but it was also one of the best years of my whole life working there, because not only my colleagues where great but also the work with the elderly people was really fun. Hard, exhausting (physically and mentally) but on the other side very rewarding and satisfying. Not only did this experience change my view onto life and on what is really important, it also left me til today with deep respect and appreciation for people who do jobs like this for their whole life. I think everybody should at least spend a few month doing something similar after school or college, just to get real a little bit.

@missy @rambo @lyxzen Not a home work, but I liked the idea of it. A picture of you from every decade you've been alive. I'll start off with the 70's, just because I think the pic is cute, of me and my little sister. That was my brace to correct scoliosis, that I had to wear as a kid.

Then I'll
