Be careful what you wish for

When it comes to my looks, I am a youth-o-phile. (Dum made that up)  I put a lot of effort into looking younger.  Peels, creams, injections,'ve heard it all before.   Well, I was checking out my pre-teen photos and I have to say.  Holy shit NO!  I would never wish my teen self on me.  This is now:

This was the situation at ages 10, 11, and 12:

As a pre-teen all I wanted was to be a grown up.  Now I will try to remember that looking like a teen isn't always something to strive for.

(I would still rock those sweaters though.  Who doesn't love a good monogram?):

  1. My high school was 10-12 grade and that 10th grade year book pic was so bad that my parents kept it on the fridge for laughs. Braces, home perm, lazy eye. When I win the lottery I will try to buy back every year book and have them destroyed.
