The other day when I was cleaning out the laundry room (seriously, I'm so excited- its still clean) I found a box full of old photographs and diddlybobs (not an actual word, I know, and yeah the laundry room had better still be clean after only two days, haha). Inside the bent up and taped back together Huggies diaper wipe box, was one of my old high school ID cards. I remember at the time, thinking that it was a really good picture, and thinking that maybe I was finally developing into a prettier girl than I had been for the majority of my childhood.
Ready for it?
And because you can't see it, and I think that it is critical information- I was wearing a black jersey style Tinkerbell shirt. Obviously, I was very popular.
Look at how perfectly clear my skin was. I would do anything to have that skin back! I didn't wear makeup back then, I didn't know how to operate a blow dryer (again, very popular. All the boys were waiting in line), but for not knowing much about beauty products, I don't think it was as bad as it could have been, right? Not yet at least. My rebellious phase didn't kick into gear until a year or so later (and boy I can't wait until I can go into details about that).
I'm glad I kept it. Even if I was never the prom queen that I would have liked to be at the time, its nice to have this credit card sized piece of plastic to look back on.
Flashback with me! You don't have to have a blog, you can post a picture on your facebook page, your Flickr, whatever works for you. Memories disappear if you don't exercise them... just sayin', hehe.
