Whenever I dig up these relics, people always have different reactions--shock, non-belief, annoyance, laughter. I react with a sense of pride. I have come a long way--in this case, I am speaking only of my physical health and appearance (clothing choice and style included)--and I still have a long way to go; but let me note that for me to think that I still have a long way to go is, to quote someone, "delusional". Well, all that aside, here are the former faces of Jon. If you want an extremely brief history of each, read below. Click on photos for larger view.
From left to right, top row: was trying to grow a beard, was trying to be uptight, was having a good time at Starbucks (enjoying a fatty beverage, no doubt).
From left to right, middle row: was trying to grow a mustache--marchstache 2009 was better executed, was just really fat*, was tired and post-shave.
From left to right, bottom row: was hanging out on a friend's porch--those were good times, was trying to "dress nice"*, was trying to make screwdrivers in my mouth--bad decision, ultimately.
*You'll notice in these two photos, respectively, that I had a Pizza Hut box, a McDonalds bag, and a Subway bag--how did that get in there?--and a poster of Christina Aguilera, which was in no way related to me being in denial of the fact that I was/am a pseudo-flaming homosexual.
