I almost had to pee in my pants, going through and selecting these pictures.
I just want to take a moment to earnestly thank God for my life… *minute of silence*.
I absolutely do not understand where I got my confidence from, why people cared to be seen with my in public, why men showed interest in me. I.stand.confused.baffled.amazed.
Considering what I know now, I had little to be confident about ( ._.) and yet.. I had friends. It is the doing of the Lord!
I don’t understand why or how this always happens. You always feel cool- until you see yourself a year later.. and cannot help but wonder.. HOW? WHY? Did no one notice?
Today, I am angry at my friends and my family; people who should have known better than to let me out of the house the way I looked. ( ._.)
I am angry, looking at my friends then and seeing THEY looked perfectly alright, while I had to stand out as the odd one. Maybe that’s what earned me respect in the end, the fact that I was just… well, “different”.
I am glad I look muuuuuuch better today. I might not be the best looking, but I have come a veeeery long way LOL. I am sharing the following pics (dated 2007- 2010), knowing fully well that- seeing as I am the one publishing them- no one will have any material to use to ridicule me when I am rich and famous.. -___-
I look ridiculous in 40%, outright pathetic (eg. sitting on the floor) in probably 35%, and somewhat cute in the rest.. but what they all did was bring back some great memories! Pictures all taken all around: Austria, Turkey, the UK, Denmark.. more locations to follow soon (Nigeria, Italy, Hungary, etc.. they are scattered all over the place lol)
That’s the beautiful thing about taking pictures (the way I do/ used to): no moment gets lost.. 😀
(p.s. I had to throw in some pictures of my fam and friends too lol. Pictures are in no particular order, safe for the final two!)
May the beautification continue…
