Throwback Thursday: Random Pictures

I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to my photos. (or the best?)  And when I say that, what I mean is that for some reason or another, all of my photos end up being deleted for whatever reason.  When I first starting taking pictures with a digital camera, as soon as I posted them to this website I used at the time (which was not livejournal, it wasn’t deadjournal.. but it was similar to those.. I KNOW! It was greatestjournal. apparently it doesn’t exist anymore), I would delete them from my computer.  I would upload them and then immediately delete them.  I figured that they were safe online and that I would always have access to them.

Then, one tragic day, I went to upload some pictures on there and learned that I had been banned from the website for “inappropriate” photos.  Which, I’m sad to admit, were mostly party photos that I had taken with my friends at that time.. and a photo of people flipping the bird. (I don’t think they were all that bad, but what can you do?)  They deleted all of my pictures, and wouldn’t give them back to me.  It was very upsetting for me at the time, though now I kind of see it as a blessing in disguise.

I’m sure that there were a lot of pictures there that were great, and I would miss.. but there are some very specific pictures that I’m glad are gone:  the pictures from when my hair/life got ruined by someone in a hairstylist competition.  I have ONE picture that shows how short my hair was at the time, and it is this one:

I’d say this picture was taken sometime in 2004 or 2005?  That skirt was so fun! It fit weird though haha

After that, I started using a website called buzznet.  I recently (right before finals) discovered this website and saw all the pictures that I had forgotten about from 2005-2008/when I got facebook.

This is from that time:

Oh my. This is what I wore for Valentine’s Day in 2005 (before my hair was ruined) :/  Still love skirts, but wow.. it looks like I wore red tights under fishnet tights.

More proof of terrible hair in 2005!! :p

This “outfit” could definitely be worse.. but I feel like I took this picture because I had just returned from a trip and I wanted to show off one of my recent purchases.  (Also, oh dear at the bag of garbage on the back of my door!! haha)

Alright, that’s enough of a walk down memory lane/fashion don’t parade.  All for now!  I will definitely have to do this again though, it’s kind of fun to see how my style has evolved.
