I suck at being photogenic. I’m always either squinting, blinking, looking the wrong way, have hair blowing in my face or something stuck in my teeth. Photos really aren’t my thing. I’ve even had people tell me that I look much better in person and that photos do me no justice. I mean, thanks I guess? I guess that’s better than vice versa.
I simply don’t know how to look good in a photo. I have a really big smile so I think it looks super awkward in pictures. My hair is always a mess (if you read my last post, you would know this) so that doesn’t help. I always seem to have a stain on my shirt or have something out of place too. I try to always make sure that I am put together but it really never seems to work out. I will usually take about 20 photos before giving up. My phone is full of failed selfies.
I finally got a Snapchat thinking that I would be able to learn to take better selfies. Well, that hasn’t worked. I pretty much just take pictures of my food or the scenery. I think that may be why people just don’t even look at my snap stories anymore. They are so boring.
I always see those beauty and fashion blogs and I think to myself how cool it would be to run one of those! But then I remember that I would actually have to take pictures of my face, or me in outfits! I also couldn’t do one of those fitness blogs for the same reason, no one would be able to see any progress I would have made!
Maybe one day I’ll be able to perfect the selfie. Hah, who am I kidding?
