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’m seriously wondering what my next hair fase will be…

Hair “styles”

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!

Selfie identity

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?
