I love the 90's...

My daughter and her friend were going through my old yearbook tonight. They were really getting a kick out of what I was up to when I was their age. If you have not read the things people wrote to you 15 years ago you really should. I forgot how silly we were! I am totally bringing the phrase "Scamming on guys" back!
So here they are in all their glory.
My senior photo is on this page (and the last time I recall having my natural hair color!):

and the senior page:

Yes that was my bedroom with the Cory's on the wall, a Gleaming the Cube, Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Madonna and various other posters plastering my wall and more. Oh and you didn't know that Edward Scissorhands was my boyfriend? A serious "Oh my Goth moment" fo sho. It also blows my mind that I had a baby not too long after these photos were taken! Yeep!

poor misguided youth :-)

Feel free to make fun of me, the kids were relentless this evening! It's OK I can take it!

That's awesome; I love seeing old senior pics.

More laughing. I can't help it and you know why.
I think I might have to pull out the "diaper not necessary" pictures to revenge on the girls for picking on you. They too shall have a day of reckoning when they look back on all the crap they were into and wonder "what the hell WAS a Pokemon anyway???". Lucky for me, Jason chucked all my yearbooks when I hightailed it out of Memphis, so Kels has nothing to hold over my head. But I have stacks and stacks of photos to get her with...

yearbooks make me always think of the "74-75" video...but i think you've been definitely more lucky than those clip characters..it makes me cry everytime i watch it :(

Sloop- Yeah, they are pretty funny. The mullet seemed to be pretty popular in my school. I'm jusst glad I chose the classic pulled back hair because I was afraid I would otherwise look dted later.

Holly-
HAHAHAHAHA! He was always pretty cute in school too, even with the hair. The kids found the stuff people wrote to me to be the most comical. Seems every person had a different idea as to who I "hearted" who signed my yearbook. By the time we read the all the girls were saying "U Heart Men" Dorks.

Cricri- Have not seen that video. Do you know where I could see it?

cricri said...

You'll surely know the song "74-75" by The Connels...you can find it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUZNv-2Dggg

MJAPA said...

Wow! I had never sen that video before. That is pretty great. I think I will add the link on the main part of the blog so it doesn't get missed!

I dropped out and never got to see that yearbook...I don't even know what picture they put in of me...
would you bring it with you on your trip? I was just writing on my message board today that I should pull out my old photo albums before you get here and we could have a giggle.

MJAPA said...

Yeah, I can scan your page if you like. You have bleached hair and are wearing rainbow tie-dye. There is also a photo of you, Jason Walsh and myself talking in the hall on the "Fashion/trendsetters for the clas of 92" page! Haha! I thought that was pretty hilarious myself seeing as I always sort of considered myself more of the anti-fashion kid.

crystal said...

that's funny, because I still think about what an outcast I was, and now, if you go into a school (or anywhere really) we would have been in the majority. Trend setters indeed!

MJAPA said...

yeah, I always had my own thing going on too and didn't really care if people liked me or not. Most of my friends and my boyfriend were older and not in school.
I always found it too funny that all of the yearbooks previous to the senior one there was only my class picture.
Then Nirvana got popular our senior year, the grunge thing started to really happen and all of a sudden I am all over the yearbook.
I went to career center in Anchorage for art and illustration most of senior year. I was barely at CHS but my photo is ALL OVER that yearbook. To this day it cracks me up!
