When I think about high school, I always think that 10 years couldn’t have possibly gone by that fast. I mean, I even have ONE shirt that I can still fit into from high school. Granted, that shirt was probably 4 sizes too big for me then but I’m still holding on to the dream. I also think that things haven’t changed all that much since then.
I looked at pictures of me back in high school the other day and came to the realization of: holy schmoly, it HAS been that long! I also came to this realization because I was texting my cousin Dave about how tired I was and my lack of wanting to go to spin class Monday night. He told me all about his one a day vitamins he takes to stay awake. Needless to say, I quickly responded that I must pick some of those up ASAP. Yes folks, this is what my life has come to: a constant hunt for anything with caffeine.
I think we all want to think of ourselves as the younger, more energetic and skinnier versions of ourselves in life while in reality, my life is better than it ever has been…3 pants sizes bigger or not. In high school, photography was a thought, a thought I’d possibly want to pursue but never did until years later. Eighteen year old me hid from pursuing anything out of the ordinary with a “must go to school for business or psychology” mentality. Twenty-eight year old me is taking risks, putting myself out there for the first time ever and doing what I always “thought” I’d want to do.
Yeah, I’d say I’ll take the older, extra pant sizes and large coffees to keep me going self.
Here is one of the pictures I found, I’m on the right. Senior prom baby!
