Throwback Thursday: Awkward High School

Running update: There is no running update. Leg still hurts.  Although, I’m trying to hit the bike as much as I can while not regressing.  (Except for today, due to scheduling conflicts. GRR.) 

Swans have that gray furball stage before they become a swan.  Butterflies are ugly caterpillars for most of their lives. Me? I had years 5-33 that seem to have been quite awkward. I’ll grow into my skin eventually.

This weekend I met up with a friend that I went to High School with and she was ever so gracious enough to bring a few pictures of me during my.....shall we say, "awkward" stage.  I don't have many pictures of me looking like this (in spite of having glasses and braces for years and years). These should make EVERYONE feel better about themselves.  Enjoy!

STAND BACK LADIES, the man of your dreams is coming through
If I can’t fix your heart, at least I can fix your computer


Thankfully though, once I shed my Sally Jessy Raphael glasses and braces, I turned into the stud muffin that you all know and love – as long as you can look past the big teeth, big nose, small head, annoying personality…..

Pittsburgh, baby. PITTSBURGH. (I think I've posted this before)
(I have never been to Pittsburgh.)

I will not bring out my high school photos...we would probably make a great team.

Sorry to hear about your hamstring. Hopefully that gets resolved soon.

This reminded me that for years I used to have a nightmare that I forgot my locker combination - until I had a dream where I actually talked to myself and said "Yo June - you're 35! You don't have a locker anymore!"
However, I still have the nightmare where the teacher says we are having a pop quiz... and I realize I am naked!

We could have a high school nerd off.

I'm so glad we did not have social media during my teen years. The thought of those pictures ... out there forever ...
