On the occasion of Kim Kardashian (opens in new tab)'s 34th birthday, Entertainment Tonight dug deep into the archives and resurfaced with a gift for all of us: home video of 13-year-old Kim celebrating her eighth-grade graduation in 1994.

Sporting a chin-length bob and showing the effects of cake/adolescent excitement, spirited little Kimmy introduces herself as "the dopest on the ropest person in this class" and predicts her own future with uncanny accuracy: "Does someone want to get a tape of this because I hope you do so you can see me when I'm famous (opens in new tab) and old, and you're going to remember me as this beautiful little girl."

In the video below, watch Kim-before-she-was-Kim flail and turn in a circle at the same time, and catch some bonus footage of Kris (opens in new tab) doing an early version of the "Gangnam Style" dance.
