Me, Me, Me!!!

I love taking pictures of myself.

It's not narcissism. I don't always throw myself in front of a camera, either. In fact, there are very few impromptu pictures of me that I like. There's a little part of me that wants to be a model, so I suppose that's why I'm always posing for my own camera (or maybe it's the other way around...).

Why the inspiration to post pictures of myself?

Well, in March I cut my hair so short that my bangs didn't touch my eyebrows and the stylist had to use a razor on the back of it (yes, that short). I was excited to find out yesterday that my hair is now long enough to not only fit into a ponytail (with the help of a few clips, of course), but a curly ponytail at that. It's not anything huge, but it means progress! So I took a few pictures.

In the process of going through my phone to look at the pictures, I found some from the day before I moved back to Dekalb. I was trying to be Miss America's Next Top Model even though I should have been packing (the mess in the room testifies to that).

Well, enough of my rambling. I present to you: What I'm Really Doing With My Time When I Should Be Doing Something Productive!

Yes, I know this one is all goofy looking. I had the phone angled funny. I thought I was being creative. Guess not.

I was trying to look like I have something of a butt. Don't worry, one day I'll get there

This one is my favorite

Don't mind the clothes on the floor. I was actually supposed to be packing to go to school. We see what I was doing instead.

I can't believe my hair is long enough to go into a ponytail already! And a curly ponytail, at that!

Just another view of me and the hair
