school



those were the days. see how wonky my fringe was? i think my grandma cut it. i was very proud of my school bag: orange and green with golden cat's eyes as buckles. also very proud of my 'schultüte', a kind of cornucopia given to children on their first day of school, filled with sweets and littles gifts, like pencils and notepads and the like. apart from us having to line up for silly photos in the classroom and outside, nothing much happened on the first day. i was so eager. and terrified. luckily, it all went well.

if i could go to school again - university, or evening classes - i would take up a photography course. and possibly creative writing.

this is a corner view. initiated by jane of spain daily, it gives a peek into different corners of the world. whoever is hosting will post a theme for the coming week. then it's up to us to take up the theme - and to travel round the globe via the other corner viewers. visit jane's for info on current hosts and a full (link) list of participants.

wow. love these old pics.
I wish I could see those buckles on the bag. the cornucopia idea is great... also a great ice-breaker on day one.

this is beautiful. you were lovely back then as i am sure you are now <3

i like the wonky fringe. it is great. when i was young i had one too. except i refused to brush my hair. i cannot remember why now. i would not touch it with a comb though and it would turn dreadlock-ish. all of it except the fringe, which was normal enough except for its unevenness. i remember it this way when my mother was driving us up the very very steep road and then along the top of the hills to my elementary school in her ancient and decrepit grey vw.

memories... thank you for bringing them :)
