"My favorite part about this photo is how I accessorized. It's hard to tell, but I have this awesome necklace on that has Scottie dogs made out of wood. The necklace came as a set with clip-on earrings that my mom thought were too tacky for me to wear. (Why the necklace was more OK than the earrings, I still don't know.) I, however, thought the earrings were awesome, so I snuck them to school for picture day to match my necklace. My mom wasn't thrilled when the pictures came in."
