An Enchanting Glimpse Of Me In 1985

This short clip from a 1985 public access TV interview conducted by Julia Masi amazes me because I was sort of cute, I was divinely dressed (that floral top is so hot I’d give anything to still have it in my possession), and most of all I seem so relaxed.

I don’t come across as nearly the neurotic, nervous, angsty mess I am now!

I wish I could remember how I hid my craziness better back then.

Even the scarf doesn’t come off all that affected.

It seems cute!
