All you do here is answer what you were doing in the year that the previous poster lists. So if someone would have put "1964?" then I put my answer, and now it's the next person's turn to put what they were doing in 1975.

1964 - I was born

1975?

Oooh 1990! A turning point in my life! I graduated from college (got my degree in only three years) and moved to an apartment in Chicago with one of my best friends from high school. College was a low point in my life; it was a triumph to put those years behind me and move on. :carrot: Getting out from under my father's thumb and being able to support myself was such a critical confidence builder and living in Chicago was some of the most fun I've ever had (except I wish I weighed what I weigh now back then ;) I would have been smokin' hot)!

1988 - Working at a financial exchange. I was in Washington DC during Black Friday when the stock market crashed. We couldn't get any information on what was happening (how did we live before the Internet?)

Oops ** correction - black Friday was October of 1987. In '88 I took a package deal to leave the Exchange after they started laying people off. Thought we were going to move to San Franciso but my husband blew his back out which wrecked those plans.

1989 - I was a junior in college in Boston, MA. At the time I was a tough city girl from NYC transplanted to what I felt was the suburbs (though I now realize Boston is a major city, it seemed so small to me). I was the white girl listening to hard core rap music while most of the other kids harped about how hip hop "sucked" and wouldn't survive the decade. LOL. These days I mostly listen to salsa. Funny memories.

I loved the 70's. 1976?
