Chronicles :: What I Looked Like in April 2003

photo on left: that was me last summer, peeking out of my laptop, donning fire-engine red hair and coke-bottle glasses. i’ve since traded in my poor eyesight for a lasik procedure, and my red hair is now mud black (the broke-ass, low-maintenance color of the season) with streaks of whatever leftover colours were put in my hair last i could afford.

[Ed.] Red hair. Yups, been there, done that.

I used to wear coke-bottle glasses because I had horrible eyesight. That was corrected by Lasik surgery the same year the above post was written (2003). One of the best things I’ve ever done for myself! It was painless and quick – the way all surgeries should be. But because my prescription was so high, it took me about two weeks before I fully regained 20/20 vision. That was not great, because I couldn’t drive, watch tv, read or do anything much really. Blurry vision is really an inconvenience and I say, we all truly need to be grateful for our eyesight. These days, I wear glasses only when I’m pretending to look serious. :P

GEEK! Heh.

My challenge to you is: Post and share a picture of yourself from ten years ago. Examine it, look at it closely, try to remember what you were like at that time and how you’re different now – not just in terms of looks, but your OUTLOOK in life, your philosophies, your experiences, the things you’ve learned, the new friends you’ve made, the places you’ve traveled, etc.

Are you up for this challenge? Leave me a comment below with the link of where you’re posting it. ;)
