Cleaning out come crap drawers meant facing 3 previous versions of myself… So I doodled them!
Let’s be real, my BF cleaned out drawers. And I had fun looking at my old ID cards from uni/ work and not really helping clean.
I was also planning this (frankly quite narcissistic) drawing:
I almost fell into the trap of “OH NOOO MY HAIR – I look weird!” But let’s talk nicely about our present and past selves in 2020, guys! So, here are some observations:
11 years ago, before starting uni, I basically didn’t have hair, or eyebrows! 20-year-old me in the start of 2009 also didn’t know I needed glasses yet. That one probably looks the least like me now. But I did love the short hair.
Luckily there weren’t any photos in this pile of my inevitable mullet fase I went through afterwards to grow my hair out… I luckily have that in my passport photo, so only a few people need to see that…
Sorry, I got a BIT negative there! The mullet was fine, just not… great 😀
The me from 2013 had bangs (that always swooped a bit) and studied abroad in York. Good times!
The third picture from 2015 was taken at work on my first day at my first job after uni. Yay happy, sweaty me ❤
That last one is also the only one taken by a professional photographer. The other two are selfies. In 2009 they were still just called “more or less random photos you took of yourself”, I guess?
