30 Days to 30 – Age 15

Memory #16 – age 15 yrs

I mentioned in my last memory (14yrs) that the summer when I was 14/turning 15 my mom left my dad officially and we moved into town. Of course I celebrated this and my new found freedom of living in town again. This was also the summer that I began dating the guy who would be my boyfriend for the next three and a half years. My husband is going to love that I mentioned that because that is his favorite part of my pre-married life that he likes to talk about.

Being in town now I was also able to throw myself into all sorts of school activities and cheerleading, of course.

I wish I had more pictures to share from my high school years but, since it was before the digital age, they are sitting in picture albums either at my parents’ house or in our storage unit. And, honestly, I think I actually destroyed a good number of them at one point because when the high school boyfriend became the ex-boyfriend, well, that’s just what you do.

And I’m going to spare you the school picture from this year because it is kind of dreadful. Bad hair-do, bad outfit, bad fake smile. 

So, instead of a picture I’ll share with you some things that happened in the world while I was 15:

• OJ Simpson is found ‘not-guilty’ in the death of his wife, Nicole Simpson
• Timothy McVeigh is arrested for blowing up the Oklahoma City federal building
• Singer Selena is gunned down by fan Yolanda Saldivar
• ER and Friends debut on NBC
• The world discovers why “Life is like a box of chocolates”
