Show Us Your... School Pictures

No I'm not skipping work today. I'm actually taking my floating holiday, and I figured what better way to celebrate the start of my FOUR day weekend then by participating in Kelly's Koner's Show Us Your Life. This week's theme is school pictures.
Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner
I'm not a big fan of throwing away anything, which means I still have (almost) all my school ids. And when I say I have them, I mean I kept them in my wallet. So anytime I need a good laugh, or a conversation started I can whip them out and let everyone see me grow up before their eyes. And now you can too!
6th grade
This might have been one of the last times my hair was short. And I rarely wore jewelry to school. I'm pretty sure I wore that necklace only for the actual picture.

8th Grade
My 7th grade ID seems to have disappeared. I do think this 8th grade picture might be one of my favorite ID pictures.

9th Grade
This was taken as registration instead of part way through the way like in middle school. High school also meant I would be going to school the boy I'd been crushing on all through 8th grade. So I went all out make-up wise hoping he'd see me. I think I might have overdone it a bit, at least for me.

10th Grade
I took the opposite approach here. As in I'm too cool for school and really don't care how I look or what people think. Yeah... not sure that was the best approach.

11th Grade
I do think this is a pretty good compromise between both 9th & 10th grade.

12th Grade
This pictures actually from about half way through the year. I thought I lot my ID so got a replacement. I think this is a pretty good picture of what I looked like on an average day senior year. And I did find the ID in my sweatshirt pocket about a week later. Not sure where it is now though.

I got to keep this ID picture for all 4 years of college. But the end I was a bit of a fan of how young and innocent I seemed to look in it. And yes, I do realize I'm not looking at the camera.

Grad School
This is my LSU ID (if you look closely you can see an eye of a Tiger in the background). I used to love this picture, except for the fact that the color is fading! Umm... how does it happen that the color on my 6th grade ID is fine, but my ID from LSU which is less than 3 years old is fading? Anyone else see anything wrong with that picture?

If you're here from Kelly's Korner, thanks for stopping by! And maybe you'll stick around a while? Also, if you've had as much fun looking as these old pictures as I did, that's a lot more to look at, at Kelly's Korner.



  1. I love how you kept all your badges. Thanks for sharing!!! :)

  2. OMGosh! You were always cute! You didn't even have an awkward year. I'm jealous. I keep everything too, I had so many MORE embarrassing pictures of me that I just couldn't put out there, haha!

  3. Ditto Katie! You never went through that awkward my teeth are big, my glasses are ugly and my hair's a mess phase! Lucky girl!

  4. aww, so cute! I definitely don't have all my ID cards lying around, and I don't even know where my yearbooks are. probably in the closest in my room at my parents' house!

    I do have my college ID in my wallet still though. it doesn't expire until next year, and I graduated in 2007! sometimes I remember to whip it out at the movie theater for a discount :) I like how I look in my college ID pic but people seem to think I don't look like myself.... not sure if that is a bad thing or not!

    thanks again for sharing!

  5. Aw! I think that's awesome that you still have your school badges! I wish I knew where mine were.

  6. OMG... you were (and still are) so cute! I don't know if I'm brave enough to put my school photos on-line.
