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.
