Stuff in My Drawers Day: Mail Edition

Thirteen years ago today was the day after the VT-Syracuse game which we won 62-0. It was also Homecoming, Alumni Day, and the Marching Virginians' 25th Anniversary celebration. I'm sure that Dave McKee just sent this email out in relief over the fact that we had exceeded extremely low expectations for behavior, and no one had died from acute alcohol poisoning while cameras were rolling.

Twelve years ago today was the day I finalized my list of music grad schools to apply to. I actually had to think for a few minutes to remember the schools -- the list included FSU, UT Austin, U Kentucky, Northern Illinois, U Maryland, and one of the Michigans.

Ten years ago today, I was a music grad student at FSU, but still receiving emails from my future place of employment. Jack was not yet a part of the Defense monarchy -- just a software engineer on a team.

Nine years ago today, I was receiving feedback on the domain name I should register for this website. www.urizone.net was the winner.

Eight years ago today, I was the Back-End Technical Lead on the Metadata Registry, which meant that I was an expert on all things related to the "back-end". I regularly wrote giant emails full of boring information (and still do today!).

Six years ago today, I was buying a video game for Anna's birthday, and working my way through Scrubs.
