slap me 5 (and 10)

SimilingMom tagged me for this one. What were you doing 10 years ago?

Ten years ago I was 22 years old and I was working in a Barnes & Noble in Chestnut Hill (Boston), drinking way too much, and taking time off between graduating from college and starting on my Master’s degree. I had just received my acceptance letter from University College Dublin and was making plans to move to Ireland.
