terrific spelling

I was looking through one of those books you fill out with your friends from when I was about six and thought this was rather appropriate:

I may have lacked depth, but my Raven Baxter instincts were spot-on.

Oh! that's so cute! I love looking back at things from my past and seeing how innocent I was and how much things have changed.
And you predicted right! Your hair did really 'turn' a different color (sort of)!

F. said...

ahahaha that's the best part about looking back
in a book i spelled initials "aneeshals" because of the Sound It Out Rule

i like to spell things properly but still, NOSTALGIA

Kirsty said...

i like the way it looks like you originally spelt color correctly and then changed the o to an e!
you saw the future. wowzers.

Maddie said...

Here in Brazil we have a soap opera called "Ti-ti-ti", it's a remake from the 80s. One of the characters (Mabi), daughter of a designer, was inspired in you. I wondered if you saw that. Here's a clip of one of the scenes (skip to 4:39):

Katie said...

I love stuff like this! I have a diary from when I am five and at the end of each entry I wrote "I Am Not Jokin" - but from my memory a lot of the things I said were lies so I was 'jokin'!

You say in your earlier posts you never really thought about fashion until you started this blog, seems like style was always in your subconsious!

That post is so great it just reminds us all that we all once were a child. I guess in a way it raises a sense of nostalgia within us all, that deep inside we're all still human.

hettie said...

Haha! I love this!

Caro said...

It's like how everyone has that one assignment from 1st grade where you describe something as "buttifull" instead of beautiful.
And then you get made fun of by your mom years later when said paper gets found.
...Of course I'm not deriving from my own life, noooo

nice blog, don't let highschool kill ya, it'll try

Tavi said...
