On Yearbooks and Smiling

First let me explain why my hair looked like crap! hehe Keep in mind that this photo was taken in a time when uso pa ang "undercut" na hairstyle. Pero believe me, during those times, super cool ka when you have an undercut. And since I tried to fit in, as in... yan ang resulta. Haha

I never got my high school yearbook. No one really knows what happened to the yearbook and the money that was paid for it. So, I was quite surprised when someone tagged me in what it seems to be a page from a "yearbook."

I don't know why my classmates looked so angas and gangsterish, but I think, just like me, they were also trying to be 'pa-cool.' Everyone in high school was trying to be cool!  Everyone was so insecure and was just trying somehow fit in. Oh those days..

But I have always believed that  there's really no reason not to smile in yearbook photos. There's just so many reasons to be happy and be grateful for. And according to one research, "one's quality of life can be predicted from the quality of one's smile in his yearbook photo." I hope that's true.

Whahaha. Undercut \m/! Not only it's figuratively and literally cool to wear an undercut. But it's also another way to hide your long hair from you teachers.
