Found these photos recently, all terrible, but I have learned several things from them.
Like that we were HIGHLY obnoxious, but pretty fun in those days.
And that every culture has its own Lionel Richie. Look, there's Honolulu's own Lionel Richie, Jr.!
Also, that I should never have tried to get a tan, ever.
And that getting braces in college was not one of my best ideas. Although it worked out okay.
This last picture was taken the following year, when I was moving home from the islands after camping there for a while.
I worked for the luau with these two, and Faa, the one on the right, was one of my roommates. What do I learn from this photo? That the poodle look was not my best bet. Sadly, it would take me YEARS to learn that.
