A Truly Little Diamond

In my post on last weekend's adventure race I said that my greatest fear is a bike. That's actually not the truth, though it is right up at the top of list. My biggest fear is getting old. This whole aging thing is so very, very depressing. To ward off the sneaking suspicions that keep creeping into my mind that say I'm already old...I'm going to post about being young.

A friend of mine has a photo scanning business. You can find her at http://www.jenhenry.com/ She is awesome and her prices are right in line with other companies like Scan Cafe, except with Jen you don't have to ship your photos to India. I highly recommend her if you've been meaning to get any or all of your old photos digitized. I took a bunch of my photos to her and now you get to see...

...Me in kindergarten. I am so cute that it makes me almost like children! Oh, ok, no kid is cute enough for that kind of crazy talk. And I happen to know that this particular cute kid was the whiniest, most annoying child ever and I'm still shocked that my parents didn't cull the litter.

I haven't stolen any of my other grade school pictures from my parents, so we'll jump right to 9th grade cheerleading. I look the same age as I did when I was in kindergarten, but now with eye makeup!

Talking about eye makeup... let's look at 10th grade. I remember my sister, Amy, doing my eyes for the picture. I thought I looked so awesome. I also remember trying desperately, and failing, to get my hair to curl the right direction. I think this might have been the last time I ever attempted to use any hair styling tools - which is probably for the best.

And, finally, my senior picture. Ah, the good ol' days...

Scandalous. What was the removed comment? You actually still look the same. But I'm consistantly having difficulties recognizing you. I looked at the cheerleading pic before reading and I wondered, "Oh, Jill's sister looks just like her!" I have issues!

Some of my issues include getting old as well. It grosses me out to the point of feeling nausiated. Especially what happened to my legs. Gross. Gross. Gross.
