My first blog post for Vintage Teenager and also getting closer to my favorite time of the year, Summer. Ah. Even though I’ve had a job since 16 I will *always* think of summer as the three months of freedom from school. That mindset will be with me for life. I used to walk to the local community pool (Northridge, California) and swim all day then wait for my mom to pick me and my sister up while eating a frozen Milkshake candy bar from the parking lot vending truck. Of course, by the end of summer my hair was super white-blonde with a tinge of green (from all the chlorine) and my skin, tan.
