Seriously. I can remember taking this picture, the foot had to be perfect and I totally remember editing the “I love you” in paint.
Circa 2004. Age 14.
My MO as an emo kid in small town Arkansas was red blush as eyeshadow and skirts over jeans. I remember being “famous” in Arkansas because of myspace my name was Tina Sunshine (Not my real name)
Life was weird as 14 year old in 2004 small town Arkansas. Thank God for dial up! I also ruled xanga and neopets. I am 26 years old and have a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Arkansas State University. I currently work for Girl Scouts Diamonds in Arkansas and I am getting married in October!
Sometimes I still listen to 2000’s emo music. I mean, 2004 was a great year to be 14. I remember taking that picture on the left thinking, this is going to get so many likes. Why I had my sunglasses on in the bathroom, the world will never know. I was pretty well known in the scene world (in Arkansas at least) and I had a lot of followers on myspace. My go to was skirts over jeans and red blush as eyeshadow.
I’m now 26 years old with a Masters Degree in Public Administration. I work for Girl Scouts in Arkansas and I am getting married in October!
