Whilst I was editing these I was going through a lot of them going "no that's not good enough" "no that's not flattering enough" and after a while I questioned "well why?" and realised it wasn't because I personally disliked them or thought they were ugly, but because I thought they weren't "pretty" or "flattering" enough for readers. But then I realised, I don't exist to be beautiful or conventionally attractive, so fuck that I'll use the photos I want to use without worrying about whether other people find them ugly. That's not to say I think I'm ugly in them, I don't. I just think some of them aren't the prettiest faces I've ever pulled, they're not from the most flattering angles and basically they're just not conventionally attractive photos. But why does that matter? This is my space and I'll post what I want, I think I still look pretty cool; who cares whether society in general thinks it's pretty.
I mean I'm very unsure about the editing on a few but it's photography/editing experiments and that's exactly what I've done so mission accomplished I think. Speech over, onto photos:
Also, on a completely different note, I've been thinking of starting a YouTube for a while now but I don't know what I want to do for my first video. I'm thinking it's going to be sort of a fashion, science, beauty and positivity videos with other bits sprinkled in. I love doing so many things and thinking of something to do for my first video is not easy. So what would you guys like to see my do (if anything)? Maybe a science topic you'd like to know more about? Or some sort of body image thing you think should be more talked about? Who knows, I don't, which is why I'm asking you to be honest.
Also, if you send me a lovely email or something about my blog and my response is a bit crap, I apologise. I've had a few recently and I've just sat behind my screen with a gigantic grin on my face, but I have no idea how to thank people as sometimes I feel like I'm coming across patronisingly. I'm honestly so grateful and if all you get from me is "thank you thank you thank you!" then it's probably because I'm lost for any other words and I don't think any words I could come up with would show my appreciation enough.
Anyways, until next time, thanks for reading!
