A Walk Through the History of Jessie
(Side Note: This is the one I'm entering in the contest because of the toothless grin and the cat on my dress.)
(aka when I most looked like Ramona Quimby, although there was a much better likeness to the old-school cover I had growing up than the one I linked to there.)
Notice the stylish bangs that I styled myself each and every day that year. Everyone else got to have perms, and apparently I was feeling left out so I had do something weird with my hair too. Lovely, no?
Surprisingly not embarrasing. I actually look fairly presentable here. That's because I was a late bloomer and didn't have my awkward phase until highschool, which of course made me ever-so-popular.
Fifth Grade: I wore that headband every-damn-day in fifth grade. You may not believe me, but it is the God's honest truth. Every day. It broke towards the end of the year and I cried so much you would have thought that I lost my best friend. I bought it at Sally's Beauty Supply, which was my favorite store ever, because oh-my-God all the makeup!
So there you have it. Jessie in grade school. The really sad thing? I still look mostly the same, only, you know, bigger and older. But there would be no mistaking me if you hadn't seen me since then. In fact, a few years back I was at the grocery store and ran into one of my mom's friends that I hadn't seen since I was about six years old, and she knew exactly who I was.
Hope you enjoyed my blasts from the past!
