old photo

i've been in the basement pitching junk, i'm trying to pare down my clutter so when i move into an apartment (hopefully 2012) i don't have to move so much junk. How come the more you throw away the more you seem to have? Goodwill and I have been good friends for the past 3 years, between my dad's stuff, my aunt's and mine.
This photo is of me I think 7th or 8th grade 12 or 13 years old. Don't know why I don't have my glasses on? I'm legally blind with out glasses or contacts and I didn't get my contacts until 1988. The sweater was beige, jumper was a red and black plaid as I recall. My mom ALWAYS cut my bangs right before picture day at school and they were always too short. The curls came courtesy of pin curls and a perm. My hair is as straight as a board and I have a double cowlick at the crown.

So Young and innocent, cowlick and all! How is it that we got so fast from being that age to being this?? I wish someone could tell me. I want a do-over and then I want to savor each moment, which would mean time would have to slow down quite a bit....
