Student Question: “What Did You Look Like as a Kid?”

As a kid, I looked like any other kid. At least one tooth was missing from first grade through sixth grade. My 1970’s wardrobe was cool. I didn’t like to brush my hair, however I enjoyed dressing for special occasions. By the sixth grade, I wore glasses—thanks to many hours playing my Atari.

Do you ever think about being an adult? I did. My mind was full of questions. What life would be like when I was an adult? Would I leave home? Would I fly on an airplane? Would I drive a car? Would I look the same in twenty years?

The photos show a gradual change each year. Daily I learned new things shaping me into the man I am today. My parents would say, be a kid as long as you can. I now understand what that means.

Growing up is a slow process, however aging is much faster. My favorite thing about being an adult is: being an adult means you can be a kid too!
