I am stealing this one from lovely Ken madknits  and adding some pics and smiles. Just to justify the title.




1971: A year after I was born I guess I was heavily and mainly into eating, sleeping and pooping. I was 1, right?



1981: The year I think I started my... physical self-discovery. And also a year of a first crush on one of the teacher. He was male, of course. And a year when I spent some 80% of my awake time reading and drawing. Well, I was 11.



1991: The year when my hair started to be ridiculously long. Also the year Yugoslavia fell apart. It was a natural process, for me it just happened. And the year I started to think that going to the University can't do much good to my personality. C'mon, I was 21.



2001: Two weeks before the world changed forever, I stood on the top of the WTC. And my world changed forever, too. I met Iggy. I was 31.



2011: Here I am, writing this post, surrounded by the most wonderful people and happier than ever. Well, I am almost 41, the age of excuses officially began, right? :)

That was fun, thanks for sharing T. Talk about getting better with age. At 21 you were definitely sporting an interesting look, but I am not one to talk. I'll have to see if I can't pull something like this together to share as well. Big hugs!

Yes, and look what became of me........

Yes, the whole USA trip drifted into something really heavy, when 9-11 happened.

That's a wonderful sequence. I love that you danced on tabletops at 20. And that at 41 you are the handsomest you have ever been! Go Tomaz!

31-year-old Tomaz was handsome. 41-year-old Tomaz is, well, strikingly handsome. But I'm sorry your trip to the US was so soon overtaken by world events.

Why thanks. :) Yes, whenever I think back, there's this immense cloud hanging over it all.

Thanks, Clarkie! :) It was actually fun when I was thinking about those years and tried to locate some pics.

How did you manage to be so cute at all ages? :)

Now that I think of it, I'm probably a younger spirit now at 38 than I was at 21, and not only because I took university so painfully seriously at that time...

You were lucky that you spent your early years in Slovenia. But you already know it. :)

1. Genes.

2. Only the things *I* think are important get the "serious treatment".

3. Oh, I know. Slovenia is... lucky.

You're hot as hell now... but if I'd seen you at the WTC the day that photo was shot, I would've ripped your clothes off right then and there. Woof!
paterson_si
Mar. 11th, 2011 09:03 pm (UTC)
Now that's a very lovely compliment. Also, sexy. :)

That's a fun set of pics Tomaz....I was thinking I could do something similar but I have very, very limited pics of myself. And I'd hate to scare you all with pics of me when I was younger!
paterson_si
Mar. 12th, 2011 12:57 am (UTC)
Well, I took the chance, didn't I? :)
