I used to be gangly. I was awkwardly tall with hips that did not fit my young body, and people kept saying I was pretty but fat. Yep, it was always, "oh you're so pretty but you need to lose weight." Honestly, I didn't care because I wasn't really that hung up on the way I looked.
My Mom was asked if I could be part of the Flores de Mayo where I'd be one of the queen and some evil spirit possessed her and she said yes. The result? I was one of the grumpiest queens of the night. It's a surprise they took me in twice.
This last photo is of me playing muse to a basketball team. I want to say that I remembered this moment with fondness but I didn't. It was sweaty, hot, and we walked under the blistering sun for 2 hours. Not my idea of fun.
Hahahahahaha! There. I said it.
Hotness, indeed. :)ReplyDelete

I guess, looking at you now, you are one of those people that age gracefully. Yung iba kasi super pretty when they are young, but the older they become, the less they look beautiful. By the way I really love the blog's title. Very creative, very colorful!ReplyDelete
thank you ... i'm flattered ... as for the title, it fits my life kasi :)Delete

Hahaha! I have similar photos back in high school. It's something you resist but there's a tiny tiny part of you that likes it. I figured that's about as close to stardom as I could get back then. :PReplyDelete
