    A bit of a memory game and a chance to think back to our individual pasts.

    Here's how the rules work for this:
    01. Check the date and see if you have some idea of what you were doing on that date (if you weren't around at the time, just say something along the lines of "I wasn't born yet")

    02. If you know or have a general idea of what you were doing (and as long as its nothing too revealing that would violate the rules), put it down in your comment.

    03. Repeat the question but choose a different date (Day, Month, Year) to carry on the chain.

    Here's an example so you get the general idea:
    ---
    Question: What were you doing on 5th June 1970?

    Your Answer: I was clearing out my Garden shed to get rid of stuff I didn't want/need anymore.
    What were you doing on 1st January 2000?

    ---

    I'll start us off on a date I wasn't around for but I'm sure plenty of you were for:

    What were you doing on 18th October 1985?

    Children's hospital suffering. I wish you had stuck with 1970. I was happy!

    I think I would have been enjoying some interesting adult education summer school class at the local university campus, that's how I filled the long gap of summer holidays I got from my job as a college lecturer back then. Enjoying still being in my twenties until the following year of the big three O.

    What were you doing on February 1st 1990?

    Freezing my gonads off waiting for the school bus. I was just 11 years old back then. Actually just shy of 11. What were you doing January 29th 2011?

    Sorry about that.

    Doing college work, putting up with my annoying younger sibling and likely doing a lot of meditation to de-stress from it all. I was really into the spiritual stuff around that time, especially as the big 11/11/11 date was coming up later that year and a lot of people in the spiritual communities were treating it like a big deal.

    Excited about getting out of school for the summer, running through the woods behind our home with my older brother picking up crawly things like bugs and snakes, making forts, petting our pet chicken.

    I was at school here in the UK and then - when I put on the TV to watch the usual cartoons and kids shows on CITV after coming home - instead saw that horrifying situation playing out.
    It really gave me and my family a shock to see that (also, while it was nearly two decades ago and hopefully I can say this without derailing the topic, I do give condolences to anyone on here who may have lost friends/family in that tragedy).

    What were you doing on November 11th, 2011?

    I was most likely in a tent at Occupy Portland. Funny how my politics flipped 180 degrees since then!
