Reflections

Yesterday, I felt like the punk you see in front of you.  Bad hair.  Missing teeth.  Awkward sweater. 

A lot has changed since this picture was taken, and a lot hasn't.  I am still odd.  I still have chubby cheeks.  The double chin that you see here had disappeared for a while, but it's beginning to rear its ugly head again. 

But now I realize that I've begun to take responsibility for myself.  I've begun to build a life.  That life includes some of the most amazing people in the world, and without them I would be nothing but a lonely, nerdy, shell of myself. 

Thank you mom and dad for letting me wierd.  And thank you, friends, for turning this wierd little child into someone who is feeling pretty fulfilled at the moment.

I love the pic! It's so cute! I was such an ugly ducking, if it weren't for prosperity I'd burn pics of my childhood. Everytime I look at them, I can't help but think "no wonder i was made fun of" lol
