My little sister, who gets sassier and sassier each day, keep teasing me about looking old. Oi, kids today. So here, I’m dressed like a 12 year old. How do you like me now, Den?
My parents share the same sentiments though. My dad says I’ve matured since he last saw me last year. I took that as a compliment. My mom says short hair makes girls in our family look older. But I love short hair. :P
A lot of people seem really obsessed with looking young though. This issue may be more relevant to older women, but girls in their 20s? I know one girl who takes being told she looks like 10 as a compliment. Uuhh… who wants to look like jailbait? When I was 10, I was awkward and lanky. I don’t wanna go back to that, thank you very much.
I would rather age gracefully than be obsessed with trying to look ten or twenty years younger. Don’t deny your age. :P I wish I looked and sounded like my age. I have a voice of a little girl, and guess what? No one takes me seriously. Not even if I speak and act intelligent or worldly. When I get genuinely annoyed or angry, people just pat me on the head and call me cute. ARGH. My little girl voice cuts me short of my efforts. Yeah yeah, sometimes it comes in handy (pout till you get what you want, you get to be the grownups’ favorite), but I don’t want to rely on appearances all the time. I want to become more than what the surface dictates me as. Sigh~
Okay, enough whining. :P Time for shameless pimping!
I wrote a little tutorial in the forums about basic photo editing for those who want to improve their picture quality. Click here! It may be a bit hard to follow because I used some techno jargon, but I hope it helps nonetheless. If anyone has any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me! A good quality picture makes a huge difference! :D
