There are many details in my life that make up who I am today. A lot of these details didn't even seem to be very important or influential at the time, but I know better now. I had a very silly band 7 years ago called Pastel Pasta which I started with 5 of my closest friends. The band was never 5 people, sometimes there would be 2 of us, and one time there was 10 of us. We started the band to make fun of high school by making fun of ourselves.
I apologize for the picture quality, but we never thought to take a picture of all of us in the same room together (FYI I'm the one in the corner playing saxophone at the tender age of 16). It attracted a lot of people who didn't really know who they were yet as young adults, which was pretty much how the band felt too. Somehow making fun of ourselves and stereotypes in a creative way made growing up easier. It was a detail of my life that opened me to a world of trying new things to figure out who I am, which is why I am in love with photography, play accordion, and am a generally weird but open-minded individual. Here is a sample of the clever silliness of Pastel Pasta on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfANaipJpEU). We don't make new music anymore, but you can here old songs on Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/pastelpasta). We use a few bad words on the first song, so be warned XD. Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed this detail from my life. And thanks to the wonderful Cristie of CB for coming up with such a neat thing to share.
thanks kiley for sharing this really awesome detail about you. we all have gone through finding ourselves at one point in our lives.
