Instead, I am pulling out an old picture that I came across as I was cleaning off the pictures from my computer and putting them on disks. I'm not sure why I enjoy putting gross pictures of myself on the internet, but there is some sort of draw to this sort of humiliation that I cannot control.
This picture was taken in August of 2005. We were a newly engaged couple and had just attended Richard's White Coat ceremony, which marks the beginning of dental school. Compare this to the picture that was taken a few weeks back at the Professional's Day ceremony and I think we have come a long ways in four years.
Yes, it seems we have improved ourselves at least a tad bit in the past four years. But, back to the old picture.
I have to believe that it was a very humid afternoon because I am very sure I would not leave the house with my bangs looking like that. That dress also did nothing for my figure. Where is my waist? And last, but not least, if this is August, why in the world do I look so ghostly white?
The one thing this picture has going for it that it not true today...clear skin. I'd love to know what happened to that clear skin over the past 4 years.
