elijah

I'm not sure why I'm doing this...

I'm intensely neurotic about showing people photos of me. It feels much more revealing than anything I might write about myself. And I like the idea of people projecting their idealized images of what I might look like onto my online persona. ("Yes, you're right--I look *exactly* like Daniel Radcliffe!") But I've been thinking that when I get down around my optimum weight, I might post before and after pictures. The thought of which unnerves me. So I thought I'd warm myself up by posting what is probably the only photo I've had taken in the last two years; at least the only one I like.

This is actually my work-badge photo. It was taken in October of last year, and I was 20-25 pounds heavier then. Also, my hair's longer now and I lost those glasses. But anyway. Maybe I've decided that I need to stop hiding behind my persona. Or maybe I'm just incredibly bored and unwilling to begin editing documents on third-party merchant product variations. Hmm.
