But my senior year, I wore what I liked, did my hair curly how I like it, and took my photos somewhere I like.I wasn't obsessed with being the cool girl, just with being myself.""At the time, I disliked both photos.Besides the clearer skin and better kept hair, I see a 'happier me' in my senior year picture.I see a sense of confidence in that picture, which I think relates to how I felt at the time." "I loved my curly hair, but sometimes I didn't know how to handle it and I guess picture day freshman year was one of those times.While you might not love looking back on your freshman year photo (you still hadn't quite figured out how to style your hair yet... ), you have to admit it's pretty incredible to see the difference between that and your senior year photo.
It was the best picture that had ever been taken of me and I was on top of the world.By senior year, I started wearing more makeup and had less acne.I'm glad I've grown as a person throughout high school into college." "Freshman year, I was still experimenting with makeup.I remember straightening my hair for a good hour in hopes that it wouldn't curl up during the short walk from the car into the building where pictures were being taken.As you can see, it was already starting to curl after all my hard work.I had a face full of makeup and the picture quality was great, so I liked my photo very much.The biggest difference that I see between the two photos, besides physical features, would be a change in mindset.Every day I lined my entire eye with black eyeliner and wore a sparkly eyeshadow from Forever 21. I remember seeing my freshmen yearbook picture and being shocked, like,why do I look like a bear?!My senior yearbook picture was sentimental because it was my senior year.Looking at the two, I feel like I haven't aged at all and that makes me a little sad.""I loved my freshman year photos a lot (at the time), but looking back, I think it's corny, and I hate the dress. I was just in a rush to finally get out of high school and I didn't put much thought into them.I still think they're corny, but I remember being happy when I took them.
