This is me at 10. I was hoping to "blossom". You know how everyone says: "Don't worry, one day you'll blossom".
Hi ho. Hi ho. Off to the DMV I go. Or went. I had to renew the driver's license and, because it has been ten years since I've done so, I had to have a new picture taken. If you want to feel real old, have the DMV take your picture and laminate it to a card that you have to show everyone who asks for ID.
My mama says that I just have to adjust to what my older self looks like and stop looking in the mirror and thinking I'm going to see what I saw ten years ago. She says that, but I've seen her about to fight her reflection in a store mirror because she didn't realize 1)it was a reflection and 2) it was herself.
