I don’t do selfies. In this day and age not taking selfies seems a little odd. How will people know what I’ve done if there isn’t a photo of my duck face to validate the moment? If no selfie is taken, did it even happen?
My personality doesn’t translate well on film (screen?). I tend to look slightly stiff and awkward. Like I don’t want to be there at all. It’s weird how my face seems normal until someone points a cellphone in my direction, immediately I either channel a serial killer or Mr Bean. It’s all awkwardness or resting bitch-face. No in between. I’m not even going to comment about the weird body movements, legs and arms pointing in odd directions like a doll that has been posed by a toddler.
My aversion to being caught on film is usually manageable. Except when it comes to pole dancing. One of the easiest ways to track your progress is to have a pole buddy snap a quick pic of you performing the move. I can’t even participate in Pole Challenges because I can’t take the bloody pictures! Or if I relent and have a photo taken, I will simply not post it to the official challenge group.
I’ve found that the ideal way around my little selfie issue is to take selfies with my kids. They tend to push me out of the shot so you might only catch a glimpse of me in the background. Now I have to find a way to get my kids into my pole progress pics and I will be 100’s!
