My sophomore year of college I lived with SEVEN other roommates. All women. This was my banner fat year because sometimes I would buy a bag a Doritos late at night and then eat the entire bag. I subsisted off of Beefaroni and Hostess cupcakes. Then I saw pictures of myself and immediately joined Weight Watchers, but I digress.
Our motto in college was “Keepin’ it Real” and I think if you read this blog, then you’ve noticed that I reference this a lot. Keepin’ it real stuck with me and is part of my life mantra even now. I loved keeping it real so much, that I peer pressured my roommates into buying this tacky t-shirt from Target. You’re all WELCOME. I don’t even know if I still have it.
You’re not seeing things. That is Big Bird emblazoned across our chests. I’m not gonna lie, when I saw this picture, I started laughing hysterically. I hope I don’t look back on my outfits now with the disdain that I look back on college with.
