High school freshman dating high school senior
But my senior year, I wore what I liked, did my hair curly how I like it, and took my photos somewhere I like.
I wasn't obsessed with being the cool girl, just with being myself.""At the time, I disliked both photos.
Behind the baby-faced, brace-faced picture was a girl just starting high school, trying to imagine how she was going to survive her four years in a new environment.
She worried about fitting in, making her volleyball team, and acing her classes. What seemed to be so important back as a freshman was nothing compared to what I considered important as a senior.
Every day I lined my entire eye with black eyeliner and wore a sparkly eyeshadow from Forever 21. I remember seeing my freshmen yearbook picture and being shocked, like,why do I look like a bear?!
My senior yearbook picture was sentimental because it was my senior year.
The biggest difference that I see between the two photos, besides physical features, would be a change in mindset.
Besides the clearer skin and better kept hair, I see a 'happier me' in my senior year picture.
I see a sense of confidence in that picture, which I think relates to how I felt at the time." "I loved my curly hair, but sometimes I didn't know how to handle it and I guess picture day freshman year was one of those times.
I remember straightening my hair for a good hour in hopes that it wouldn't curl up during the short walk from the car into the building where pictures were being taken.
As you can see, it was already starting to curl after all my hard work.
