Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You! Kinda!

Oh, how good that would be! But, I’m not quite ready yet to do one thing every day that scares me. I don’t even know all of the things that do scare me, being honest… but I know one thing: cameras!

Oh yes. Those pesky things that we end up on walking into shops… or in the background of someone’s photo… or in Selfies. If I end up on CCTV, my eyes are drawn to myself immediately. I think “Is that me?” and then “That can’t be me.” And then I need to check myself out to make sure it is me. Confidence flies out of the door behind me, and I’m left there gawping at an image of someone (who may or may not be me!) gawping upwards. Horrible, terrifying feeling.

So, at  the grand old age of (ahem) 24, I’m tackling that fear face on. Head and shoulders on, in some cases. Inspired by Tilly’s post yesterday, I thought “Why not?” I’m not singing. It’s just a photo. When my book’s published, and becomes not only a world best seller, but a Universal one, my photo will be everywhere then. And my proper name, but an updated photo is as far as I’m going today. These photos are so up to date, they were me this afternoon.

None of those top of my head Selfies that I used to so aptly take of myself, oh no. These are proper, full-on Selfies. And a couple made into kinda Selfie Squares for Becky’s KindaSquares challenge.

Now I know I’ve used photos of myself on the blog before… some adapted slightly, but they are usually old photos, and I’ve changed quite a bit since then. Although not too much, seeing I’m 24 and all that. And I will continue to use those caricatures I’ve created based on how I think I look from time to time,but today, this is me. All me. Fear aside.

Lights!

Camera!

Action!

Hello world!

And not a forced smile in sight! Although I did need to sit down. Cameras, you see!

So… would you do one thing a day that scares you? Would you do just one thing? I’m just asking… you don’t have to. We all have to do our own thing!

Do what feels right and enjoy it! It has to be done that way!

Happy Wednesday!

Nosy

Warning: this post may be slightly top-heavy.

It’s One Word Sunday once again, and the theme this week is ‘Nosy’. So I thought I’d make a nosy post. A post full of noses.

 

As with life, some noses are larger than others.

And others are mere dainty points on a person’s face.

Some noses, in fact, are indistinguishable.

And others are as clear as, well, the nose on your face!

And others are literally hooters!

They all do a really good job, all things considered!

In My Mind’s Eye…

Blogger’s Block is still apparent today. I mean I have a lot to write about… but the words just will not flow from my mind through my arms, down to my fingertips and then through the keys on the keyboard.

I had to post something, and didn’t want the post to be entirely about nothing (although it is!), so I’ve delved back into my creations folder and come across these very poor computer representations of moi, and decided to use them for the post. I mean the only thing that is somewhat similar is the hair…

I wonder if normal service will be resumed tomorrow? We shall see!

And Debbie’s Six Word Saturday (Yes, I know I’ve used more than six words in this post, but the rules say only the title needs to have six words. Besides, and as an added bonus, I’ve highlighted six random words above. Well, it has to be done!) Link below.
