Wednesday Thoughts

The other day, while at a friend's house, she pulled out some of our old high school year books. Mine are packed away in some boxes who even knows where so I haven't looked at these in years. I am about to do the unthinkable and share some high school pictures of me with you! Gulp!!!

I simply took pictures of the yearbooks, I haven't scanned them yet. So I apologize for the quality. Also, it was the 90's so don't judge me too harshly please.

First we have this candid shot of me - what is that in front of me? There's no way of knowing. The only thing I know for sure is that my bangs were amazing. I think I was in tenth grade the year all these pictures were taken.


This next one is of me in the orchestra picture. I wasn't in the orchestra so I have no idea what happened here. I'm assuming the picture was mislabeled because I was in band. Either that or my friends and I just went down and joined the orchestra picture for fun. That sounds like something we would do. 


This next one is from Amnesty International.  These pictures were obviously all taken the same day since I look exactly the same in all of them and am wearing the same thing. My friend is sitting next to me on the right and I remember her doing that goofy smile for a joke in all the pictures. 20 years later it still makes me laugh. A good friend who I still hang out with is on my left! She looks like a baby and I love it!!



Here's the whole picture. You can see my bro in the pic where I put the arrow. He looks like a mirror image of the guy standing next to him. I'm 100% positive that was unintentional. Also, I'm really jealous of his straight hair.


This last one is of the environmental club, proving I've been a hippie for a long time now. My friend has that hilarious goofy smile on her face again, and what's up with the guy in front of me? Also, the guy standing next to me was actually a good friend of mine, so why was he standing so far away from me? One of my bffs to this day is standing next to me on the other side. She hasn't changed a  bit!



And that's the 90's for you. Can you just hear Toad the Wet Sprocket in your head? I know I can. Happy Wednesday. :)

I love this post and I will never post pictures of me in the 60's! Great post!

That hair is actually pretty epic.

Katherine said...

Hee heee!!! That really is some AWESOME hair. And I love that the guy in front of you in the last one looks SO cheesed off. Maybe he'd just heard about global warming. Or been dumped by one of the girls on either side of him... These photos are great!!! And I think you meant Toad AND the Wet Sprocket... ;)

"Toad the Wet Sprocket" were a late 80's- early 90's band?! Oh, I can't like them anymore; that was before my high school days.

hey is that April Reves in the row in front of you on that last picture? This July 28th with be the 20th anniversary of her death. She was such a great friend and chemistry partner. I think of her often..

Elizabeth Downie said...

Yes, I think that is her. Her death was such a shock and so tragic. I didn't know her well, but she was always very nice and friendly. I was so sad when she was killed in that accident.

And James, you can like any music even if it wasn't in the years you were in high school!

This is how your hair was when we met. Good stuff!

All this time I thought that in 9th grade I was the girl in black and flannel but I was actually the baby-faced girl in a t-shirt with a cat wearing sunglasses on it.

And why are Stephanie and Tabi in the environment club photo and not me? So confusing.

I feel like some of those people were in orchestra so I think you're right...may have been a get out of class thing. The mirror image of your brother is hilarious.

Stephanie said...

Sara! You were in gym class during photos - you missed the HOPE picture, but then I came and grabbed you out of gym. Hence, the cat shirt! HA!

I think you need your own column in a major publication...thinking Joel Stein from Time. You are just as good.
