SCARS AND SOUVENIRS

The title was inspired by Grey's Anatomy's feel-good-after-Meredith-died episode last week. Here's a nice quote on scars which I got from it:

"What's worse, new wounds which are so horribly painful or old wounds that should've healed years ago and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we've been and what we've overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That's what we like to think. But that's not the way it is, is it? There are just some things we just have to learn over and over and over again."

"People have scars. In all sorts of unexpected places. Like secret roadmaps of their personal histories. Diagrams of all their old wounds. Most of our wounds heal, leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them don't. Some wounds we carry with us everywhere and though the cut's long gone, the pain still lingers."

There are ten framed photographs in my room. Just want to share.
Here are they:

1. A studio portrait of me in a pink ballet tutu taken when I was eight years old after a ballet recital.
2. A picture taken during my cousin's Keith wedding in late 90s. I was one of the secondary sponsors and was around 17 or 18 years old.
3. My kindergarten graduation picture in a toga.
4. A picture of me and my mom taken during my highschool graduation in 1995.
4. My college graduation picture wearing the Assumption's pearls and lace trademark.
5. My highschool graduation picture in casual shot.
6. An entourage shot of Bim and Olen's wedding in 2003 taken at Baluarte de San Diego by Lito Sy of SmartShot.
7. A black and white photo of me and Marge at Pancake House taken last May.
8. A picture of Charo, me, Aileen and Mitzi at our highschool batch's reunion in 2003.
9. A collage of picture of my "Forces" girls given to us individually by Aileen last Christmas. It was a collection of our photographs from last year.

I still have two new empty frames. I wonder what memories to put on it. Any suggestions?
