"IT'S JUST A PHASE"

Guess what Aunt Sindi? You were wrong!
  1. 1.
    Vegetarianism
    Started at age 7, only because my mom wouldn't let it happen for 6 year old me. I was the only herbivore within a twenty mile radius of the Southside of Chicago. No one in my immediate family had even a passing interest in giving up meat, and absolutely everyone assured my mom I'd grow out of it. Here we are, 18 years later...
  2. 2.
    My baby blanket
    Needless to say, I write this list with it wrapped around my neck like a cape. No one thought we'd make it this far baby, but you can't stop true love!
  3. 3.
    Obsessing over my hair
    I used to miss gymnastics because I would spend upwards of an hour combing through my hair until I captured a bump-free ponytail, and if I did not, I would refuse to go to practice. I am MUCH more lax now, but certainly not in the blissful, toss my hair up way they all swore I'd grow to find.
  4. 4.
    Collecting worms to live inside my dirt-filled clear backpack.
    Okay. That was just a phase.
