Earlier today my friend K posted a couple of scanned photos of me from high school on Facebook. I feel like I’m just now able to come to terms with the awkward young person I was… And so I scanned a few of my own.
I used to cringe about my super androgynous phase. Truthfully, I think it’s just because it also happens to coincide with a time in my life where I wasn’t always very happy. Many of these photos represent good times, tho, especially the ones in Iceland and in Melbourne. I think I was actually a pretty cute little boigirl most of the time and I made it thru teenage and young adulthood without being sucked into the femmebeautyconsumermachine, which is kind of neat.
Self Portrait, 2000.
Elven blurry children, 1997.
Red Rocks, 1999 or 2000ish.
Iceland horse trekking, 1999.
Band photo shoot, 2001. We are trying to look very serious here but if I scanned the outtakes (which you could not pay me a million dollars to do!) you could see how much we were goofing around.
Yesterday John, Jenna, and I went on a field trip to Ft. Collins to have brunch at the Rainbow Cafe and visit the Alley Cat. At the Alley Cat we all got so, so sleepy and I was worried I would pass out in a food coma in the booth. I decided to make a little mini-comic about it in my moleskine (co-written with J & J).
Later we went to see Prometheus in Loveland (I give it a B-) and when the movie let out it was raining intensely. It turned out the highway was flooded and we ended up having to drive back to Erie on County Road 1.
All in all I realize this is not a super exciting story, but hey! We were tired! It was fun!
