I’m honestly not sure if this post is an either/or thing or a post both for comparison thing. I’m just gonna do both because I don’t post pictures of me very often. This picture is from June 2010, a family vacation way south of corn and soybeans Illinois on a little island which is technically in Alabama but is basically Florida. I had died my hair dark red in September 2009 and in the mean time it had slowly faded to the color you see up there.
My aunt (who took the picture) is a photographer and photoshopped my face which is why my skin looks kind of weirdly (read: creepily) smooth.
This is a picture I took yesterday, I was just camwhoring a little bit under the excuse that I would use it later as a reference for when I start drawing again. I miss drawing - I used to do it all the time and I just don’t anymore.
There are always nitpicky things I don’t like about myself. I don’t like my eczema and I don’t like the fact that I have light acne triggered by stress. I think my nose is too big and I think it’s weird that I have teeth like my Dad’s.
Dad’s the one on the very left. Also this is one of the only pictures I could find of myself at that angle AND smiling. Thanks Matt Mallon! (also MattMallon I saved this file as “myteethandMM.jpg” and now I can’t stop laughing at it)
But ANYWAY. ANYWAY. Even though there’s a lot of shit i don’t like about the way I look, in general I find myself pretty sexy on the outside and often teetering on the brink of awkward, awesome and bitchy on the inside.
Since I must quantify myself, I think of myself as an 8.
And you’re all like “WHY CANT I FIND YOU”
And I’d just like to say thank you all, it means a lot.
Someone also unfollowed me recently. And since they’re not reading my posts anymore - fuck you, guy.
I should probably start thanking everyone personally, but alas, I am lazy. Lazy, lazy, lazy.
I’d also like to apologize for my next posts for a long time being gifs that I’ve liked since I’ve started this tumblr. (boo!) They’re also queued for 5 a day, though! (yay!)
To counteract that - and since all I’m doing this summer is working - I’m going to start posting more bloggy stuff so I feel more like a real person instead of GIFS. GIFS EVERYWHERE.
So hi, I’m Amandaand I have two Galileo thermometers because they’re really fun to watch as the room heats and cools.
Also, I’ll have you know that I put on foundation and earrings just to take that picture.
