I was Facebook stalking myself today when I came across about five pictures that made me think to myself:
Holy macral! I've changed SOOO much!
In 2008, I was a freshman in high school. I was extremely self-conscious and overweight.
I thought I was ugly and awkward.
My hair was short and stubby.
I was on the freshman girl's basketball team, but that didn't make my life easy. It was hard. Really hard.
I got my first C in school EVER!
I had a huge crush on a boy and all I wanted to do was get to know him.
Now in 2012, I still have a crush on that same boy, but he knows who I am and we're good friends. However, I explore other options. I want to get to know other people, not just him.
I'm a sophomore in college and I'm still self-conscious, but I'm slowly learning to be comfortable in my own skin.
I think I'm pretty and definitely not as awkward.
I've let my hair grow out.
I've learned to be more mature, to let things go, go with the flow, and to serve others instead of being selfish.
I love getting an education and learning about things that actually interest me.
I love getting to know so many different kinds of people and realizing that even though they might not be like me, I have something to learn from them.
I'm so glad I'm the person I am today!
Just look how much I've changed!
