HAHAHA! Okay, so I'm not a babe yet. Am I discouraged? Well, not entirely. I give myself some credit for having the chutzpah to post these self portraits at all (and risking a reputation for sadly misguided narcissism) and at least I don't look like an axe murderer.
I have shed some weight, have new glasses, am actively attempting to rid my face of the self imposed trauma of the past year, and twenty pounds into the future I will hopefully buy myself a babe wardrobe.
