Flashback Friday

Since I've been lagging a little bit on the posting, I decided to just embarrass myself and take you back...way  back to my freshman year of college.

Yes, that is me and my old roommate Rachel in her bathroom taking picture in the mirror.  It was the year of MySpace pictures and this was a classic.

That same year my mom tried to give me a wave and it didn't turn out so I had to cut it all off and was dubbed with "the Jew fro."  (You can say it's derogatory all you want, but that's what people called whit kid fro's...and yes I did pick my hair.)

At eighteen, I piled on the make-up, stayed up late watching stupid movies (Napoleon Dynamite especially), and spent late nights at Subway or ordering pizza to the dorm.

That was six years 

I didn't know my husband, yet, I was about fifty pounds over weight, almost failed out of college because I rarely went to class, and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do with my life.

Yeah, it was the best and worst time of my life, but it's those little flashbacks of my past that I have to look back on to get my inner young adult...that sometimes I wish I could go back to, especially when I want to sleep in and wear pajamas in public.

What was your freshman year of college like?  What do you 'flashback' to for inspiration?  (Feel free to share awesome Myspace pictures).


  1. I definitely have flashbacks to the good old days, but not my freshman year of college. It's a year I rather forget. Well, my first semester anyway. The second wasn't as bad. But, I look to my later years in college for inspiration and my high school days. Both of which were great!

  2. My friends call the over-permed asian bob the "Ko-fro" (korean afro). I'm afraid to look at my pictures from back then!


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
