For those who think my journal is just about self portraits (for those who think my journal is, um, all about me???) I wanted to clarify that on the 29th of December I began participating in a flickr project to take a photo of oneself every day for, well, 365 Days. Everyone has their own reasons for doing it and some of mine are: to learn self-acceptance, self-love, to try and see myself in a different / realistic / natural / somewhat more positive way. Another is to see if there are changes day to day or over a certain length of time (in various ways) and the other is so that I could hopefully use some creativity (terribly lacking lately, but it's still early in the year and hopefully that will change).
Then again, if you just want to think I should get over myself (as perhaps I well should, and so should you - and you and you and you) than that's okay, too.
