Newness! Hooray!

The lives of two self-proclaimed geek/gamer chicks as told by themselves. Sadly, we don't have to exaggerate much from reality.

Newness! Hooray!

A new comic! Huzzah!
I've had similar thought-conversations with my younger self. It's fun to compare notes and see how things turned out! I think I would get along with myself very well. :D

I would have imparted knowledge that children should know like "don't worry about what other people think of you" and "be yourself" and crap, but by 8, I already had that down. Having coke bottle glasses, sleeping in a back brace, and having to get on the short bus during recess to go to your gifted classes kiiiinda makes a kid figure that out pretty quick. ^_^

Oh, here's another version of this meme from about two years ago:

OMG! you look soo dorky :lol: I love it! I don't remember how much of a dork I was but I differently not at the top of an popularity polls. I was short, stocky, useless at all sports, and had coke bottle glasses myself. People generally left me alone so I got by :D

Mwahaha! I looked just like Kristy. Err... wait, not really. If you shaved the head and left the ponytail as a rat tail and the changed it to a neon orange windbreaker vest that would be me.

I have always been, and always will be, a dork. I made peace with that around 8 years old. XD

Hmmm...my 8 year old me?

Yeah, I was dorky, hopeless at anything involving sports, had coke bottle glasses, my nose was always buried in a book and I still had my hair.

There are a few things I'd love to tell my 8 year old self, though.

Oh yeah!

When I was 8, I also used to make monster models, I still have them too!

So, when I wasn't reading and being a social misfit, my fingers were usually covered with bits of glue and model paint.


Yeah, those were days

When I was 8 I was very active, and almost always outside. I don't think I would get along with my 8 yo self.
