Tara from Ec.lec.tic Spaghetti has deemed today " Post Of A Picture Of Yourself In High School Day". I thought this was would be a lot of fun so I scanned my high school graduation photos.
I graduated high school in 1992 as is easily deduced by the enormous ball of fuzz on my head that is reminicent of a hedgehog that got an unfortunate perm. Mall hair was only one of my memories from 1992.
I have brown eyes, but back in the early 90's colored contacts became easily accessible. I wore glasses but decided to switch things up and purchased a pair of violet colored contacts.
I used to wear silk shirts, Keds, Cross Colour clothing, stone washed jeans, baby doll one piece outfits and was never seen without my Black Hill Gold class ring with my birthstone. Until my opal birthstone exploded at my job working as Sbarro's that is. No one told me that opals are heat sensitive.
Within a year of graduating from high school the Grunge Era started with Nirvana hitting the scene. Living in Washington State at the time I couldn't get away from plaid shirts, baggy pants and white kids with dredlocks. I was always more of a preppy dresser so I was very glad that I was done before I could be mocked incessantly.
I think that hedgehog with a bad perm hair and the au naturel eyebrows aside I looked pretty darn hot back in high school. I wasn't very popular my last year of school because we moved and I transferred high schools between my junior and senior year. I wouldn't recommend it.
I don't miss high school. The drama, homework, only having 5 minutes to run from one end of the school to another to make your next class, the homework, gym class, homework, the cliques and ummm let me think...did I mention homework?
I do miss early dismissal, choir class, thinking that a $300 paycheck was a lot of money to make in one week, living at home and not having to pay rent or buy my own food.
I loved to hang out with my friends all the time. Jade and I had a record of hanging out for over 41 days straight. We used to go to the clubs in Ft. Lewis and cruise down at the Tacoma waterfront or in Tillicum (that was the cruising strip to meet Army guys).
Sometimes I miss the carefree days that I had right before and after graduating from high school but I definitely would not want go back. Life is pretty good right now too.
