Overdressed and Overeducated

This is an offshoot of my main blog (TheClockworkAesthete) dedicated completely to Outfits of the Day (OOTD) and various examples of other clothes I put on my body.

Me: 23. US size 18-24. 40F. 47/39/47. And not interested in changing a damn thing. Enjoy!


----------------------------------

All my old OOTD photos make me want to cry. I was so much prettier and more confident when I was so much more fat. I’m afraid I’ll never have that feeling again.

I’m so sorry I haven’t updated this blog more. It’s proving harder than I ever imagined to look at myself.

My Macbook Pro laptop will be 8 years old in June. It has travelled across the country, up and down the east coast, survived being in airport luggage, Megabus luggage, being dropped at least twice, being knocked off my dorm bunk when my roommate was fooling around in the top bunk, dogs pulling it off the sofa, etc. It’s running on a knock-off battery because the battery made for it was defective and swelled up, causing permanent damage that included completely disabling the track pad. The disk drive hasn’t worked for about 3 years now. It is held together with duct tape and prayers and/or black magic. It forgets where its wireless card is, sometimes. But its hard drive is all there and has never let me down. It got me all through school and then some, and is the machine on which I do pretty much all my photography and web design work.

Last week, the back of the screen literally started falling off. I haven’t been able to move it since (as we speak it’s open on my bed, resting against my lamp) because I’m terrified it will completely fall off if I move it. 

Since I’m not really comfortable with just asking people for money,  and my photography is just about the only skill I have to offer, I’m holding a print drive through my Society6 page to help ease the cost of a new computer. 

Even if you can’t spring for a print (I know $17 is a lot to ask), please boost this post? Every little bit helps.

Sorry, I’m not very photogenic to begin with and having a completely different face-shape to work with is throwing off my game.

I’m a bit back to square one, where I started on my body acceptance journey 3 years ago. I’m back to the “fake it ‘til you make it’ part of the fight. I will try to post an OOTD of the day as often as I can. It helped in the beginning, I’m hoping it will help now.

Next week, part II of my animal photography collection will be going up, so stay tuned and keep boosting, thanks!
