We interrupt blogging about my trip to the U.S. for this important post. Everyone who sees pictures of me as a child says I haven’t changed at all. Chileans say I have cara de guagua (a babyface) and to that I say, thank you! Because even if it means that now I get confused for my students and people don’t take me as seriously, it means that when the rest of the people my age are getting wrinkly and grey, maybe I will still look younger than my years.
So what do you think, have I changed much over the years? Or am I just the same as when I was 8 years old?
11th grade, age 16. This was the shortest my hair ever was in high school. Also, I know, sit up straight!
9th grade, age 14. This is my personal favorite. I may or may not have worn that tank top so much that it disintegrated. I'm pretty sure it was from Delia's.
6th grade, age 11. This was the re-do picture, and it still came out awful. My hair was LONG (I hadn't cut it in years, but finally did mid-way through 7th grade).
5th grade, age 10. I used to hate this picture, but now I think it's cute, besides the fact that I look so pale.
4th grade, age 9. Growing up, this was always my favorite school picture, can't remember exactly why.
3rd grade, age 8. Awwww! I actually picked out that dress myself. Yes, it's a sailor's dress. I remember being stressed out because we had gym class the day of school pictures but I still wanted to wear that dress, so I brought a change of clothes. It was really hard to put the tights on by myself in the bathroom.
