When I read that Berry was starting up the Monday Meme again, I was thrilled. And to start off the new challenge, she has chosen an especially dear-to-my-hear topic.
I went to a school that required wearing a uniform. That was ok by me. I was very nerdy in Grade 9 so I didn't mind. It was a way of fitting in. But as I progressed through high school, I - uh - came - uh - "out of my shell" as my Grandma would say. So I tried to recreate what I looked like in the very first of my yearbooks.
This is a pretty good likeness of me in my Grade 9 school picture. I did wear glasses and braces so my smile would not be as bright as I would have liked it. (Who wanted to show all that metal?) My hair was limp and shapeless and never would stay in place. (Who really cared about hair?) I loved school and was a good student. However...
By the time I graduated high school, I had lost the glasses; lost the braces; went to a stylist instead of a barber and had enough self confidence for my whole class. The quote under my picture was actually written by a friend in my Grade 13 yearbook.
Doing the Meme was so much fun and brought back a ton of memories.
Good Night for now.
