Believe it or not, this upcoming school year marks ten years since my senior year of high school. Life has come so, so, SO far in those ten years. I am absolutely amazed by every new thing life brings my way. Senior year for me (and really my entire high school experience) was mostly just awkward. I wasn’t overwhelmingly popular. I really didn’t care about making new friends or partying or boys. I pretty much did my schoolwork and hung out with my closest friends and that was that. I didn’t drink or try drugs. Yes, I skipped school. Often. Like really often. But I also graduated 3rd in my Senior class of nearly 400 students so really, I think a few days less of school were just fine. And you want to know what kind of trouble I got myself into? I skipped school to go to Victoria’s Secret to buy panties on sale. I skipped school to pick up my check from work and take it to the bank before 2 p.m. so I had access to my money for the weekend. I skipped school to get overtime at work. Yep. I was quite the rebel.
Anyway… enough about that. Pictured above in awesome ten-years-ago-quality are myself and Princess Daddy (yes, we’ve been together that long, were high school sweethearts and went to Prom together) and our Prom double dates: my big brother and SIL (yes, they’ve also been together that long, were high school sweethearts and went to Prom together). Sometimes I feel funny having to explain that but seriously, it’s not that common these days.
