Guys, I’m 11/12ths away from being 9.

That is to say, Mama took her sweet time editing my 8-year old interview. But nonetheless, I did indeed turn 8.

Lots of big changes this year [caution: spoilers] vs my 7-year old video:

  • Last year’s best friend (Mama) didn’t even make the top 4 this year. I’m pretty sure she took so long to edit this video out of protest.
  • Marriage is off the table.
  • Life went from a 5,000 on a 1-10 scale to a 2. Sorry, but times are tough when you’re a crab with a mic-hog for a brother.

Some things never change though. I’m still rocking out to Under The Sea (shoutout to my hot crustacean band!) and someone (cough, cough, Georgie) keeps trying to steal the spotlight, perhaps in retaliation for this video.

See what else is new in the full interview video:

If you want to reminisce (and believe me, you do), here’s what I was like when I was really little but thought I was big, when I had arguably better taste in music, or when I had decidedly worse taste in jokes.

Special thanks again to Mama’s friend Alyson, who had the idea to interview me every year on (around) my birthday.
