Day 10: A Photo Taken Over 10 Years Ago of You & A Current One
Today, we will look at me over time. There will be pictures. I don't have excerpts of my writing, so it'll just be pictures, and some commentary.
This row- approximately 10 years ago. I don't look much different, really. Except the horrible glasses. Yes, my hair length dramatically changes- I cut it every 4 years or so and donate it so they can make wigs with real hair for people who don't have hair, i.e. cancer/chemotherapy patients, people with alopecia. I donate to Locks of Love.
Just a bit over 10 years ago...ok, maybe more like 20 years ago; I was cuter then, and wanted to share. Because, you know, I was cuter. Much cuter!! Aww...
A few more random pictures, more than 10 years old. Just because.
Ok, enough of the old pictures, time for more recent stuff!
|2007- I was really thin then!!|
|2009- I decided to dye my hair darker...and I'm more than a little chubbier|
|2010- My "I-just-chopped-all-my-hair-off-again" image...I'm pasty white because it was April and I hadn't had any sun. I'm now preparing for my 4th donation, if you notice how much longer my hair is below (after just one year)...|
It's kind of funny, though, that in the past 10 years, my face hasn't aged much. Actually, not funny, more annoying...I still get carded to go to rated R movies, and I'm almost 24. Sure, I've gained and lost and gained weight over time, but I haven'r really gotten to where I look much older...the stress really hasn't made me look older yet. I guess that's a good thing, right? I mean, if stress made me look older, I'd look like I was 50 by now...plus the sun...it's amazing I still look fairly young.
Most of my pictures, I know the approximate date by: a) the folder they are in; b) the hair length; c) the shape/color of the glasses/lack thereof; d) the relative chubbiness of my face; e) background cues (i.e. decorations in my room, clothing, location of photo). Otherwise, I can't really tell you. Just a guess. I know one of them is a yearbook photo...the one with the date on the photo is obvious...and now the digital ones put themselves in folders by date. Before 2009, I don't have that.
So there are a lot of photos of me. Ta-da. Now that I've plastered my face all over a blog, I can go try to find my self-esteem...and tell it that I'll be ok, because I chose some of the better photos...really. Except for those glasses...how did I ever make it through school with those glasses...why did I choose those?? I make much better choices now...and I don't wear them in pictures! Ta!
