"This picture marks the era in which all photos of me were eventually discarded, around age 14. In fact it was only a couple of weeks ago when the last TRULY horrifying photo of me was thrown away by my Father. Needless to say I wasn't quite the lady-killer when I was younger..." -Rhys
"Apparently I was super excited about my extra large glasses, bowl cut hair, and Old Navy flag t-shirt. This must have been a dress down day though, since I'm not wearing my trademark silver eyeliner... isn't everyone fashionable at 13?" -Melinda
"I was extremely sick and forced to sit for a family photo (hence me looking so unimpressed). Despite my older sister pinching me to try and get me to smile, I managed to maintain my dead-pan face. I am often told how much I look like the little boy from the sixth sense in this photograph. I blame this on two things. Firstly, my expression. Secondly, the bowl cuts that my mother used to give me. My hair was extremely thin and would not easily... so my mother would actually place a bowl on top of my head and cut around it. It still haunts me to this day." -Gemma
"I present you, me, start of 6th grade: Sweater and pedal pushers, home-made by my mom. Ann Jillian haircut, that I just HAD TO HAVE! And beneath the droopy kneesocks I am wearing TOP-SIDER SHOES! Really, it does not get any hotter than this." -Gayle
