Having my photo taken is one of my many weaknesses (obviously in the grand scheme of life, it's really no big deal.) As a child, about 50% of the time I was not normally smiling in photos. As you can see, this is something that has not changed. Sooo, you're a person whose awkwardness gets exemplified 10x by the camera, having a blog of photos of yourself seems like a reallly good idea (sense the sarcasm.) So instead of the usual trying to be like a blogger poses, here are more of my... natural reactions. The one above? I would call it some sort of cyclops, or maybe the winking while growling hunchback?


I'm back in LA now, but I took these photos yesterday-- aka my last day in Jersey. As you can see, I am NOT donning a winter coat (hallelujah) cause it almost hit 60 degrees. While I switched my heavy coat for something lighter, there were a handful of girls sporting some denim cut offs and/ or flip-flop?! What?! Oh, east coast, you can be so silly sometimes. (I say this as if I didn't try to convince my mom to let me do the same thing in middle school...)

update: apparently I'm not the only one who makes silly faces 



THESE SHOES ARE SO BLISTER CITY. I can't even. There is a reason I never ever wear them. 


I don't even know what my face is.



And behold, the traditional try hard faces that I usually sport

  4. As much as I try not to make a weird face when taking photos there is always at least one when I go through picture selections. I just can't help it as I have the most animated personality ever (according to my friends). And I know how you feel about your shoes. I had a pair and after the first wear, I never wore them again. But the weather was actually pretty decent enough to the point where all I had on as a form of outerwear was a large sweater. Also I did see one girl in booty shorts. -___-

    Stay weird, girl! :D

  5. This post really made me LOL as I can most definitely relate. There are about 2 normal faces that I dare to show to the world via my blog and the rest are crazies, not unlike your ones.
    The GIF is da bomb. ;)

  6. Bahaha, love the cyclops ;) Keeping a blog is definitely the natural response to have when you know you're awkward in front of the camera!
    Love the kicking GIF - right after you told us those shoes were blister city, its like you're trying to kick them off haha.
