1. I rocked a middle part and bangs – neither true…but I should have. I could have looked that good on a regular basis 😉
2. I was under the impression I should wear an inch of black eye liner under both eyes. Contrary to what this picture may suggest, I was not emo or depressed.
3.I thought orange was a good look for me. Really, Elisabeth? Really?
I’m blaming it on the fact that my mother loves me enough to discourage any form of natural sun tan. But really, that is just an excuse. (note: orange from lotion NOT a tanning bed)
4. Leggings, shorts, tie dye, and an uber high side ponytail. Do I redeem myself a little if you know that this was halloween weekend? (but this was not my costume…just far more comfortable to go to dancing in..)
5. I wore a wig. Also not true but after we took this picture my roommates made fun of me for it for awhile. At least the summer after freshman year I wasn’t orange. Progress people, progress.
I’ve learned from most of these – although now I wear tie dye and leggings without the shorts (and the makeup) rock climbing on a regular basis…I’m not sure if that is progress or not.
As we drove by the dorms tonight, Ben and I reminisced about our freshman years (three years apart and completely void of each other) and man, freshman year was great. All my food was cooked for me. I never did any dishes or cleaned a single bathroom. I lived within 1 minute of all these awesome friends. I never went to bed before 1. There were lots of dates, dance parties, and late night convos. Plenty of ice cream (unlimited soft serve? yes please), dance classes, and footie pajamas. There were a few too many japanese classes, latin tests, and tests in general – but it was good. If senior year weren’t so amazing I might wish I could go back and do it all over again 🙂
And just to prove sometimes I looked like a normal human being freshman year:
