I may or may not wear this sweatshirt and Marimekko shirt all the time.
Two things (because my mind seems to work in lists):

1. I've come to realise I am pretty much incapable of not being awkward in photos. I don't really like taking my picture taken because I don't like smiling for the camera. I don't know why. I don't like smiling if I don't feel like it or something like that. So if I'm forced to pose, I usually make a face and ruin the picture and/or end up being super super awkward. Hands clenched into fists, pulling at the legs of my jeans, or just playing with my fingers.
I carved pumpkins with some friends for Halloween and we took pictures with our creations and for some reason I had fit of giggles and couldn't get it together. It took an embarrassing number of attempts in order to get one where I wasn't ruining it for everyone.

2. At the class I took last weekend, there were a bunch of teenagers and the instructor was talking about how when you're young you have to miss out on all these cool bands that play at 18+ or 21+ venues and he was like, "You guys know what I'm talking about" and pointed to me and the young kids. Um...too bad I was probably one of the oldest people there and am well over 21. Nothing awkward going on there. Just like the time a couple months ago when someone thought I was in the 7th grade.


  1. I have both of these same problems.
    cf. all photos of me + the time last week when i visited my granny in the hospital and the lady in the bed next to her mistook me for my cousin’s 14 year old daughter. people always go on telling you "it’s a good thing! there will be a time when you will be glad to be thought younger". yeah, well. i’ll gladly be mistaken for 25 for the rest of my life. 14, not so much!

  2. hello, i think you might like this tumblr i just found

  3. i guess i'd rather look younger than older, but it'd be nice to be considered to be at least in my 20s! :)
