Five Minute Friday- Five Years Ago

 This is my first time linking up for Five Minute Friday with The Gypsy Mama.

Here are the rules:

1. Write your heart out for five minutes and then show us what you’ve got.
2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to play along.
3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and encourage the fellow five-minuter who linked up right before you.

This weeks prompt is to spend five minutes writing about where you were or what you were doing 5 years ago. 

Here's a brief summary of my life 5 years ago.

I had just graduated from high school that year and after realizing that my life was quickly spiraling downward with the dating situations I was in and the atmosphere I just couldn't get away from, I decided that it was time I made a change. In January I moved to Northern California (where I had lived until my family moved when I was 14) to live with my two best friends and their family in my old neighborhood. Quickly thereafter, I was dating someone that persuaded me that it was okay to do things that I had moved up north to get away from. We were quickly in a serious relationship after that (which lasted until a year later when I moved back home for the final time and ended up making the life change I intended to do in the first place). Living with my friends was a blast. We made midnight runs to Walmart and Starbucks, stayed up late talking most nights, had a tradition of watching Zoolander pretty often, and managed to get along most of the time. :-) 5 years ago I was having fun with a boyfriend, my friends, and little responsibility.

That's all I could fit in in 5 minutes!
