I recently realized that I left home for college TWENTY YEARS ago. Even though I attended my twenty year high school reunion this past spring, the thought still blows my mind. So this week’s Throwback Thursday is a photo of me from my freshman dorm complex’s semiformal dance in October of 1996.


I didn’t bring any semiformal wear to college with me because I didn’t anticipate any events of that sort. I could have had my mom mail me one of my high school prom dresses but instead I chose to wear this terrible shiny white blouse with a short black corduroy skirt that had large buttons down the front. Ah, the Nineties! I’m pretty sure I was the only girl at the semiformal who wasn’t wearing a dress, but I managed to give zero fucks about it.   🙂
