In my daily blog reading I stumbled across Flashback Friday in The Adventures of Christopher and Tia. I thought I would join in on the fun.
I have not had the opportunity to go through all the many pictures I have that would more than like embarrass me, my sister and my mother, so I pulled this one off of my computer.
Things about me at this time
I was 17.
It was the Fall, so I had been back in
for about four months. Dallas
I was a senior in a high school that was new to me.
I was going to be an elementary teacher – bilingual elementary teacher to be exact.
I felt like I had already been through all the struggles of life – barely making it out of South Texas alive – and the rest of my life would be a piece of cake – loud laughter as I type that.
I love that it wasn’t as humid in
North Texas and I could have bangs.
I had long thick naturally auburn hair then – I miss my hair.
I thought I was fat. URGH!!!
I still listened to INXS, U2 and Depeche Mode (and still do).
I watched too much Real World and 90210.
I chased bad boys. If I were to have met JAG at this time we would not have worked out at all – don’t worry he knows this.
I took a big yellow bus to school.
My parents would not get me a car of a diver’s license because they knew I would take off to another state. Not to run away, but to meet new people.
Both of my grandmothers were still living and were healthy. I was so close to my Meme at this time.
I was not an aunt yet – my sister was still single.
This girl has changed some through the years. I wish I could travel back and tell this girl that she is just fine the way she is. Actually she is pretty neat and does not need to be anyone, but herself.
