I was inspired to write this post after reading this post at Then Heather Said. I loved the pictures and memories within the post, and it led me to start thinking about pictures of me from the past several years.
When I entered college, I didn’t have a digital camera. I was a photojournalism student and I shot using film only. Looking through the stacks of the many photos I took at that time, I noticed one thing: because I was the one behind the camera, I have almost no photographs of myself prior to my junior year.
Now, that was only one year of college for me, but it seems odd when I am looking through friends’ facebook feeds and see that their photos go all the way back to their first year of college, whereas mine? Start at junior year. That year, I got a digital camera, which made uploading pictures a lot easier. I also made an effort to spend a little more time in front of the camera. Here are just a few pictures to share, both from college as well as more recently.
The end of Junior year. I was up early that morning to get coffee before starting my shift in the office of my residence hall. I was a Resident Assistant and we were checking students out at the end of the year.
Spending time with my BFF. It was a chilly and rainy night, which made my hair frizzy and curly by the end of the evening. .
My graduation day. You can’t see them, but I was wearing pointed-toe kitten-heeled shoes. I loved them, but was ready to put on sandals!
Ballpark with The Boy! This was our last game of the regular season last year –after the Reds had clinched the division title.
There are so many more photos on my hard drive and flash drive, as well as memories not captured on film (or digitally). I cherish each and every one of them every time I look back on time with friends and family, and each time I scroll through my photos on my computer. I am amazed at the changes I see in myself since graduation, and will continue to be surprised in the years to come.
What are some of your memories from recent years?
