This is a little bit of an embarrassing post, but I’m going to be looking back at my old photos – from my first Facebook profile picture to now, so here goes…
So this is my first
ever profile picture..safe to say I thought I was some kind of model in the dressing room of New Look – I remember that because I remember this day – I was 13.
Now, there’s a funny story to go with these photographs. There was this guy that I used to know who lived in America – my mum and grandma along with his mum used to exchange photographs of me and him to each of us – if that makes any sense. So they basically wanted to set us up, so here’s me having a ‘photo shoot’ trying to look cute. Not sure what he thought of the photos – I guess we’ll never know.
Here are a few photos of me from my college days. In the first one, I am in my art class with a sheep on my head – it was cake and for a laugh my classmates thought it would be funny to put food on my head and take a photograph. As you can probably tell from my face I really didn’t like it but I smiled for the camera despite that. The next two I was on a field trip to Manchester Metropolitan University to see an art exhibition of the current students studying there. I hated the top photograph at first but a lot of people seemed to love it to, so I have become to look at it too. The bottom photograph just goes to show how much I hate to have my photograph taken. I can hear myself saying ‘Don’t look at me, I haven’t got my face on’ – makeup that means if you didn’t know.
This next one makes me cringe because what was I trying to do? Show everyone that I was having a great time or ‘I just stubbed my toe – let’s take a photo of my reaction’. Yeah, not my favourite photo.
And look where I am now. I’ve met the love of my life and I could not be happier! I know I say it a lot but I mean it. I’ve found my true love and I am so lucky to be spending the rest of my life and eternity with love of my life.
I hope you enjoyed this post – it’s a little different but as I said I want to change things up a little bit…til next time!
