summer m.: a look back


it's my birthday. and though i'd like to post 26 wishes (that'll happen friday), i'm gonna post pics of me over the last 10 years. this isn't my own, self-centered idea. hell, i barely even look in the mirror when i brush my teeth. a while ago, phoenix (the one with the longest shout out on my blog roll) suggested that i post pics of me from the last ten years. just to show, iono, that for three semesters in college i tried to be a girl. so here goes...

1995

the kid.

1996

yeah, basketball gear and shit.

1997

what you know about senior pictures? (peep that nike, playa.)

1998
if you wanna see it, click here. if you don't wanna see me at my girliest, don't go there. warning: this shit will be removed by 1900 hours central standard time.

1999

fresh perm (comma) yo.

2000

what's that on my lips?

2001

still a bit, um, girl-ish.

2002

yeah, nigga, fuck you.

2003

my birthday 2003. that's one of my best pals, candace.

2004

keeping it gangsta during a chicago autumn.

2005

I keep remembering that if I do a retrospective of that all my pictures from 1995 - 2003 would be incriminating.
