Day One-Self-Portrait

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." Sylvia Plath

Me pretending the lamp is the sun; I love the feeling of warmth on my face. I don't do a lot of selfies so this was kind of daunting. In honor of the above quote, I will share what happened to me last night before this photo was taken.

I got home late after a soccer game and hanging out at our sponsor bar with the team. And I got home especially late because I forgot where I parked my car and I totally freaked out. If you know me, you know that one thing I absolutely hate is being lost. I always like to know where I am. And when I get lost, I get really, really mad. It's one thing when I'm driving and I can try to fake it, but on foot looking for my car on among streets that look exactly the same while being questioned by a drunken acquaintance (the team captain asked me to give another teammate a ride home) who keeps saying "You have to remember, what did the street look like?" Not so much.

I finally had to call my friend who rode with me to the bar to ask him where my car was: FAIL. The most embarrassing part: as we were walking from my car to the bar my friend says "Ok, just remember you're on Blabla Street and Blabla Street." I said, "Oh, don't worry about it, I don't know streets names and I never get lost. I have a really good sense of direction."
