I tried my hardest to look like a goth alien today, but my parents just told me I looked like a prostitute. I was like, calm down, ya'll it is not that crazy. My sister said I looked like Sailor Black Hole, though, and that was much closer to what I was going for.
Because my parents disapproved of my outfit, and because my friend told me that taking more than three selfies a day is a disease, and because my sister told me that when she shows people my picture, they say "wow, she's so... interesting" (southern code for ew-that's-weird), I'm kind of in the mood to not be taking any bullshit. Why do other people care so damn much about how other people dress. Like is my weird-ass outfit affecting you?? In any way??? I will take as many selfies as I damn well please, and if you don't like the way I look, avert yo eyes. I am not doing this so that you'll give me a compliment.
I know I'm ranting to the choir, because you guys (I hope) wouldn't be following my blog if you didn't want to see my clothes, but can I get a hear, hear?
Anyway, the real reason I decided to dress slightly "sluttier" than usual was because I got a job! Haay! It's part time at a consignment store, and I'm hoping it'll be a good environment to make some money in while I work on freelance during the rest of my time. I do know that I won't be getting to wear my weirder clothes at work, though, so I'mma get my kicks out on my own time.
I was really excited to take these pictures, because it's under 90 today and I felt like a superstar. I don't think they turned out that great, though. I'm starting to give up on ever being a good photographer. Besides I literally had sweat dripping through all my cracks and crevices by the end of this 15 minute shoot, and I'm in the upstate right now! In Columbia you walk outside and melt into a puddle.

PS. I'm trying out this whole dots-under-the-eyes makeup and I don't think it's cultural reappropriation, but if it is someone let me know and I'll stop.
