We all know by now that bloggers have some kind of a narcissistic gene, I mean most of us write about ourselves and love to post selfies in all kinds of situations. So this post today really IS about ME – BUT it will be desperately entertaining for you, as some of the pics are freaking hilarious.
Ok, let’s start.
One thing – my childhood was HAPPY. I love to think back, as I was a really happy child. We lived kind of hippie-style, means, we owned a huge house in Basel City including a big garden, tons of animals (mainly me – I had chinchillas, bird, cats and rabbits) and we lived together with another family with 2 kids our age plus a single person who rented one floor of the house.
Fact: I looked like a boy when I was a child.
I also thought I was the most amazing person ever. Even though I had a patch over my left eye and socks til under my waist, I thought I was pretty darn awesome.
Bro was a cutie as well – until the moment when he started to tease me. Seriously, he was really mean sometimes 🙂
Here’ me and my best friend Simone – we met at kindergarten and we’re still best friends. Actually, we celebrate 30 years anniversary THIS year!! (she’s far right, I am second right)
Teenage years came and my best friends were cigarettes, alcohol and parties.
My self-love started to flake when the teenage years came on strong. I didn’t show it, but my body did.
Posing has always been a favorite thing of me to do…..
A late get together of the ‘HOUSE’ – this is the ‘community’ we lived together for about 21 years! Besides the fact that I obviously had a few drinks too much, I love this photo and I love these people!
What really sad is, that I don’t have a lot of pics from the very beginning of my teenage years, where I was a freakish GRUNGE-chic – think about disrupted and patched jeans, doc martens, red hair, batik shirts and earrings in form of the cannabis plant. Definitely a SPECIAL time in my growing up years and I have to go and dig some more to see if I can find a pic of that look!
I also have hardly any pics of the skinny years, and I am not sure if I want to show them here – they could be triggering, and I think on some of the ones above, I already look very hungry! The worst state is really not nice to look at, so I spare you that.
The pics from my time at Swissair was one of the worst in case of bulimia – which you can tell by my bloated face. I loved the job, but it was a disaster in terms of my Eating Disorder! Speaking of which – I realized, that on my About Me page is a very short roundup about my story, and I think I want to do 1-2 posts about it in detail. If you are interested let me know!
Ok guys, I hope we’re still friends even though you know more of the truth about myself than you might wanted to! Ha!
Do you like to look at old pics?
What was your style when you were a teenager?
The style of your parents when you were young – yay or nay? I always thought it was awful how they were dressed, but meanwhile I SO love that retro-style!
