I'm hopelessly sentimental. In addition to a lot of other stuff, I have kept nearly all of my papers from kindergarten through graduate school. This legal pad is one of the more interesting things I've kept.
This pad is filled with day after day of what I planned to wear to school when I was a sophomore or junior in high school in the late 70's, just about the same age Daughter is right now. I remember writing all of this out so that *gasp* I wouldn't repeat an outfit without letting sufficient time pass.
It's a real kick for me to read this, since I remember most of these clothes (and actually still have a few of the items packed away). The "black gypsy dress" was particularly stylish. And how about those cowl necks? I hated them then and still do. "Gabs" refers to gabardine pants. I'm thinking those were kind of stretchy. (We're not going to dwell on that.) And Gunny Sacs smocks...remember those?
The stars referred to PE days. On those days, I'd have to wear something that I could easily remove without completely messing up my Farrah Fawcett hair. Mind you, it took at least an hour every morning to style it.
Now, as dramatic as it gets around here with a teenage daughter in the house, I have to pity my poor parents trying to survive their only child's list-making teenage years. Methinks this was a little extreme.
Thankfully, I've relaxed just a tad. These days, I no longer have to let sufficient time pass between outfit wearings. In fact, I'd pretty much wear the same thing every day if I could get away with it.
Jeans or shorts, sweatshirt, Born shoes or sandals. A short, short list.
Oh, and no PE.
