My family has stacks and stacks of old family albums in the basement. And not only that- there are 100s of home VHS tapes as well. Mostly of me because after the first born parents lose interest in documenting everything. After looking through a few of the old family albums I’ve deduced a few things about my life that should been obvious but somehow weren’t.
#1 I grew up to look a lot like my mom minus the curls. Also I’ve never quite come to terms with the fact that my parents were once carefree and young.
|Holy cow, look how young my mom is! She’s the same age that I am now in this picture!|
#2 It’s easy to buy/bribe my love. The boy with the cute pet will always get the girl.
|Experiences like these were cruel since I wasn’t allowed a pet.
I wish I had that dress in a grown-up me size.
#3 I find traveling really quickly exhilarating. Even if it’s only in my imagination. Also every girl deserves a horse.
|Yea, Santa never brought me a pony either.
Although I probably didn’t know the difference between this one
and a real one at the tim.
#4 I dress for ME and me alone. No matter how ridiculous the outfit, if I love it than you’d better start learning to love me in it. Life lesson: don’t tell a lady how to dress.
|I look a bit daft don’t I?|
I probably thought I was camping, instead of in a tent in the living room. See that beautiful wool sweater? Well I went through a period of time where I’d only wear that sweater. Even in the middle of the summer. Seriously it’d be 100 degrees and I’d still be wearing it. Stubbornness: A Quality Breed Early
