Our homeschooling group had a teen dance last weekend (yes, the theme was black and white). Looking through the pictures later, my overriding thought was: why were we so awkward in 8th grade, and why aren't they? Was it really all perspective? Did we just think we were awkward, but actually we looked as fantastic as my daughter and her friends?
Sadly, I think the answer is no. I truly believe that those of us who grew up in the 80s actually were awkward. We had ugly glasses, bad hair, and in upstate NY anyway, we wore Earth shoes with the GASS stamp on the bottom. The end.
