Back in 1985, one of my friends had some time on her hands and decided to make me something very special. Using different scraps and magazine cutouts, she created a personalized advent calendar that was all about me. Each window was numbered and labelled with an A. Except for 5. Poor five was forgotten. Open a window and get a peek at me. But not in a creepy peeping Tom kind of way… A window into my life 30 years ago.
Each day this month I’ve been opening the day’s window and sharing the video on Instragram. We’re only half way through September and I’m surprised at how much about me is the same from 30 years ago.
I want to post each of the tiny videos here, but until I can figure out how to do that, I’ll continue sharing via Instagram. If you’d like to see the videos just click on the Instagram link on the right hand side of this page. Let me know what you think. And I’m curious, how different is adult-you compared to highschool-you?
