more from the 90s

I need to scan my old photos for (digital) safekeeping so I think I'll share some on my blog!

I MISS my bedroom from my teen years - that is a view of the ceiling - it was covered wall to wall in posters and magazine pictures - not one boring inch in that room!

And the teenage me - BABYBAT GOTHBARBIE!

We had a lot of fun being silly and finding ways to entertain ourselves in the boring (depressing) suburbs.

Wow you really like The Cure then!

That last photo makes me smile. (Imagine how Goth that fire hydrant would be if you spray painted it black WHILE keeping that chain-thingy on it .. LOL)

And yes, I want that ceiling too, even if I am mad busy with styling my own (making band logos and taping them up).

I have ALWAYS loved the cure! ; )

@Tenebris - oooh your project sounds fun! Will you post photos when it's up? And I like your idea for restyling the fire hydrant! ha ha!

Mad thrilled with all The Cure - my very favorite band!! Love love love.

I didn't become obsessed with the Cure until later though. In high school I was soo into Nine Inch Nails and Sex Pistols and Sonic Youth and Minor Threat. And starting to listen to the Cure too, but I wanted louder angrier music at that time. But I was also discovering other bands I'm still really into now, like Social Distortion and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

I remember when I was a teenager I was so jealous of the kids who had rooms like that, covered in posters and pictures. It was all I could do to get away with hanging up one Sid Vicious poster. That and constantly fighting with my parents about clothes. That's growing up in an Army household for you.

I am so enjoying your photo trips down memory lane! Rock those roller skates!

@Ruby - My room was my little haven away from the cruel outside world - taking down all that stuff was a real pain though! ha ha.

I was lucky that my Mom marched to the beat of her own drum, and encouraged me to do the same! I didn't fall far from that tree!!

Glad to hear you're enjoying the old photos!
