Awkward Personified

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

With my mom's recent move the opportunity for going through old photographs from my youth presented itself quite frequently. 

There were many gems worth sharing. But one - one amazing snapshot - frozen in time, rose to the top of the pile of printed awesomeness. 



You're welcome.

I literally belly laugh (and snort) every single time I look at this photo of me taken July 1990 at my first New Kids on the Block concert at Blossom Music Center.

Let's reflect:
- This image is the epitome of an awkward chubby preteen. 
- The camera angle isn't exactly helping differentiate my chin from my neck.
- I'm a new ten-year-old and think that my double digit status makes me cool.
- Accessories for days - the hat, giant binoculars, NKOTB buttons, over-sized glasses and stonewashed denim jacket.
- I'm flashing a peace sign. I'm flashing a peace sign.
- My friend busting a move behind me? That's Erin, I'm now the godmother of her first born child.
- This photo was taken only a week or so after the first awkward NKOTB related image I've shared on the plum back in 2008.

(Still laughing)

Happy Wednesday, kids.

  11. Los ajustes de ese Nivel de Calidad, han variado poco en años, es muy sencillo, a Nivel de Calidad mayor de las Keywords, el CPC será más bajo, pagando menos por ese click que nos dará una visita.
    El Nivel de Calidad está en un baremo de 1 a 10, siendo 10/10 el nivel más alto, o sea que, ya sabes, aumentando es baremo lo más cercano a 10, pagarás menos, así de fácil.
