NOW WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH MYSELF!?
The idea was created by the awesome Veronica Arreola (Viva la Feminista) in response to criticism of selfies... because self-love and celebrating who you are (finding the beauty even in your imperfections) is surely a feminist act. Read more about the project on her site or here.
Even though I enjoyed the challenge - and it's pretty great having 365 pics to look back on as a record of my year (I even made it into Everyday Family) I am also glad that the year is over. I've taken more photos of my face (and other parts) than ever before. This project helped me reach new levels of self acceptance, I'm also kind of sick of looking at myself. I know some people are continuing for another 365 but I think I need to take a year off. However, I did appreciate the routine and the record so I'm going to try to take one photo a day that somehow represents that day, whatever that ends up meaning. And who knows, maybe a few of those will end up being selfies anyway?
