Carpe Diem, 7-9-79
Who is this skinny girl with the very big hair? In the long ago ancient times before there was anti-frizz gel, every day was a bad hair day. And I believe she is sporting something similar to a sun tan, perhaps one of the last times she indulged in sun worship. If you haven't yet guessed, this is moi, on the occasion of my 22nd birthday. This I remember as being a rather carefree summer. Or maybe that's just in contrast with the fall of that year, plagued as it was with this very apartment flooding, me totalling my car, leaving my job for a better one only to get laid off from the newer, briefly better one, and getting involved with a disaster of a boyfriend. There I am, smiling and happy, with no clue that the next year or so would seriously suck. All the more reason to seize that moment or hour or day of happiness. You never know when it will show up again. Seize while the seizing is good!
