SFG: Six


This is me in 1986. I was 6 years old.

I was part nerd, part tomboy but that didn’t stop my mother from putting barretts in my hair. I was a little girl who liked to play in the dirt and ride my bike but the world was just a big pastel ball of sick.

God, I’m glad the 80s are over.

Ha! I was a tomboy too. My mom would try to force me to wear homemade skirts. Looking back, I can appreciate my mom's efforts. But at the time it was torture. Great Illo!!
