I always seem to notice men staring at me on the days when I look disgusting…

I can’t believe I’m dedicating time to ever write about this, but it just strikes me as weird. It’s also interesting from a question of perspective. This disclaimer has probably just been written by my subconscious to make my vanity sound acceptable and deep. Anyway…

I’m just walking down the street looking like a hot mess. I’m due for a shower, hair is frizzy as shit because of the rain, greasy bangs sticking to my face, wearing librarian glasses, sweaty face, and top it all off a strapless bra underneath of a not-strapless dress (lost the straps). That wasn’t the most flattering image I have ever given of myself, but I just got off work and looked pretty gross. I’m walking out of the eye glasses place and see this guy looking straight at me — gawking at me more like. There was nothing around me that he could have been looking at. He made eye contact with me and then gawked. Was the second time that happened today, though the first time was a slightly more creepy situation. It didn’t look like a “Ew, what the fuck happened to her face?” kind of gawk but maybe. Anyway, my point was that I don’t understand why this happens. Is my perspective of what looks attractive off? Or am I just paranoid that people are staring at me some days?

"Dear honest Ned is in the gout, / Lies racked with pain, and you without: / How patiently you hear him groan! / How glad the case is not your own!/ What poet would not grieve to see, / His brethren write as well as he? / But rather than they should excel, / He’d wish his rivals all in hell. / Her end when Emulation misses, / She turns to envy, stings and hisses: / The strongest friendship yields to pride / Unless the odds be on our side. / Vain humankind! fantastic race! / Thy various follies who can trace?"

Jonathan Swift

Vlog Blooper Reel

So obviously in the process of making these vlogs I make a lot of mistakes. A LOT OF MISTAKES. However, usually you don’t see nearly all of them. So here is a little blooper reel of my best vanity moments, fuck ups, and pep talks to myself on Photo Booth. I hope you get at least a little bit of a kick out of. It’s set to “Give it Away” by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

GPOY: I need to go to bed edition. Believe it or not this isn’t a pose. I’ve been sitting here with my head like this for quite a while. You would think I would have just gone to sleep by now. I’m addicted to tumblr and since I haven’t posted in a few days I must be making up for lost time.

GPOY: Testing my pin up Halloween hair edition. I tried to do victory rolls and failed miserably. The curls are as close as I can get to a pin up hair style. Also, my friend Gabby is going to be doing my makeup on Halloween, since I am quite challenged with these things.
