OH man... the memories! Ranny, Jenn, and I were cracking up on most of them since most of them had us in them. Its amazing how long we've been friends for and to this day, I can still call them my best friends. I am blessed. TEN years and going strong! :P Some of the pictures were horrid... some of us looked jacked up. Especially now, looking back, we are disgusted and probably embarrassed by the way we looked back then. But you know what? We thought we were the sh*t at the time, didn't we? I mean... we didn't have a problem with the pictures then, but we do now.
I realize that I didn't learn how to fully smile until the later years of high school. I don't know... I think I didn't smile because I hated the way my cheeks looked (too big) and I have always had a crooked smile. I don't know why/how I can't stop smiling now. I didn't get braces or anything to fix my smile. Maybe I'm just genuinely a happier person now and more comfortable in my own skin? Not sure. Speaking of skin... I really thought that I was FAT back then. Now, I'm about 20-25 pounds heavier. Yet, I'm still smiling. How ironic.
Even my old school dance dates commented on the pictures. One in particular... haha... nevermind... I already told Narin the story. The comment he left and my response still cracks me up. :P
Its amazing how much we have changed in certain ways... but yet, we are still the same people. For example... hanging out with Nary this past weekend, she often said, "Oh my gosh, Thyda... you will never change! You're still the same!" I'm taking this as a compliment because I know damn well that I am a fun and caring person. What more can you ask for? (don't answer that... lol!)
Ahhh... I've lived a good life and have made many memories and gained many great people to care about and have care for me. I can't wait to see what else this thing called "LIFE" has in store for me! :D
