Vintage: #NaBloPoMo

Have you ever asked someone to take a photo down? Tell us about the experience.

No, I really haven’t. If my mom happens to post my 6th grade picture, I will not hesitate to cry and be emotionally devastated until she removes it from the Internet. It is really and truly awful. It will never be posted as a Throwback Thursday photo. I looked like a boy, which would be fine if that was the look I was going for.

It was not the look I wanted.

I’m not sure what the hairdresser didn’t understand about doing a pixie cut. She definitely missed the mark that day. I forgave her a long time ago. Hair grows back thank goodness.

This was the look that I wanted -minus the beer. This picture was taken in either 1996 or 1997. Does that count as vintage? Or am I vintage now? Sometimes, I show this to my boyfriend to prove that I was skinny once. He doesn’t care too much that I’m not skinny. I wonder if he would like skinny Holley. I think he likes me because I’m kind of entertaining. He doesn’t know what I’m going to say at any given moment.


P.S. You will have to take my word for it that my 6th grade picture was not pixie-ish at all.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. OH I had those pixie cuts as well… sometimes good but usually bad. I feel your pain even years later on the bad hair cut and how it can affect self-esteem. No, I haven’t asked anyone to take a photo down but before digital days, I have ripped up a few myself! Cheryl

    1. Oh I know what you mean. Not everyone can do a pixie cut right. 🙂 I have also gotten rid of a few pictures. Not that 6th grade picture yet. lol 😉

  2. My mom (and most people) are like that about pictures. I don’t think it’s a big deal. I can’t imagine going through life without capturing something is it really is rather than you want it to be. Right now I’m thinking about those people who make posed duck faces in all of their photos and when they look back at them theyre like, how many years did I throw away thinking I looked great?

  3. That’s a lovely picture 🙂 I remember I had a bad haircut when I was about 8. I hoped and prayed my hair would go back to its original length before school reopened after summer hols. It didn’t 😦 I so hated going back to school with my hair looking all funny 😉

    1. When my hair did grow back, I think it was 100% better than before. I was so grateful. 🙂 Thanks! Even my nails look good in that picture. 🙂
