A Little Boy Named Kim...

From my Kim 101 Post:
#33. I looked exactly like a boy in the 7th grade.
(One of these days I'll post a picture and you will laugh.)


Well, one of these days has come. In honor of back to school time, I have decided to put all pride aside and post a picture of myself from the most awkward time of my life. I assure you that is not a picture of my younger brother. It is unfortunately and most definitely a picture of ME in the seventh grade. Apparently it wasn't enough for me to look just like a boy, I thought it would be pretty cool to dress like one too. All I have to say is, man puberty stinks.

oh. my. gosh.! Kim, you don't look anything like that picture!!! Wow! well, it's impressive that you put that pic up despite your pride. I must admit, I have fat 4h grade pictures and ackward 7th grade pictures. But I am not as brave as you to put them up on my blog. :)

Oh my gosh!!! You are so hilarious. You are totally right about the puberty phase, its such a sad sad time in life. I think my awkward puberty phase lasted a little longer than normal because pretty much all my pictures through grade school are incredibly hideous and embarassing.

Kim -- I am completely cracking up...mostly because I have a picture so similar to that from the 5th grade. Good thing we're so gorgeous now :)

Autumn said...

Um. Your's isn't HALF as bad as My 7th grad pic. Or maybe it was 8th grade. Braces, glasses, growing-out-bangs and a shirt that could also pass for a boys. (I think that was the style then-seriously!!) Yes, puberty does stink. Not sure I'm ready to post that on the www yet.

Oh that is hillarious! My 4th grade picture looks like a boy as well, so don't be too embarrassed.

No way is that you!! I don't believe it. It is probably a pic of your brother or something.
