2002 Me

Daily Prompt: Buffalo Nickel

Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?

€1 euro Coin from 2002.

Damn,how little I remember from then and it doesn’t even feel like it was that far away. I would be 13, so I would be in year nine of high school, being a little misfit, who listened to rock music and stuff from the 70s. I would be the Girl who had breasts since she was 9 so was the girl that all the boys wanted to feel up,regardless of my personality and the fact I was the school fatty. I would  be studying german and working to save the money for the trip there with school next july.

I was just beginning to stumble int poetry writing, believing they would be lyrics for my “awesome band” that was gonna make me  a rockstar. I was Reading with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

I was Customizing my clothes and shoes,partly because of self confidence or lack thereof, partly because it was difficult to get clothes to fit a short dumpy  with 36 D breasted  woman.child.


I was different.



11 years is a long time.

  2. great idea for a post – being that big up front at 13 must have been difficult

    i tried to “like” it, but it didn’t show up. i’m having trouble with posts that require email.

    1. Hi Jackie,
      It was pretty rough, having the periods from nine has been no picnic either, but I got by.
      Im sorry you are having troubles with integrations in the posts, if you shoot off an email to wordpress or hit them up at twitter(@wordpressdotcom) I have found them to be quite responsive to bugs!
      Thank you again for stopping by,

  4. Hello natalie: I just wanted to say I relate to you about preteen puberty. I was 10 & went from an undershirt to a 34 B & then 34 D & then 34DD within 2 years. I am short (5’1 1/2″) & weighed 120 lbs at the time…all muscle as I was in track & field. Like you i customized my own clothes because I didn’t have alot to wear….I listened to rock music & wrote poetry in the bathtub nite after nite!!! I did have some published over the years….
    You are a beautiful woman & I hope the past does not haunt you now.
    Sincerely, Sherri-Ellen.
