Since December this wall has been a constant background for my outfit pictures. It’s located right outside the door from my classroom and is hidden enough that I don’t have to pose like a fool while parents pick up their kids after school.
Although occasionally we are caught and I get a little red-faced as someone stares.
I’d also like to give a little shout-out to my fellow teacher and friend, Jess, who faithfully takes 30-40 pictures of me most days after the buses have left. Some days it’s been snowing and freezing cold, other days it’s super windy and rainy. But whatever the weather, Jess braves the elements with me to take some completely frivilous and unnecessary pictures of myself.
To her I am very grateful.
The wall’s appearance started during basketball season in late December and has continued even though that blasted season is over (praise the Lord). Before Jess started taking my pictures there was this constant struggle to only wear my favorite outfits on days I was not going to the gym so I could get pictures done when I got home. And there were days I used my outfit as an excuse to not go to the gym.
Jess has taken away that excuse. So thanks, I guess…
As the school year draws to a close—less than two months!—I think I’ll miss this wall and our quick chats after school. Half the pictures she takes are of me talking because we’re always having a conversation about something and I feel the need to stop smiling to share my two-cents.
But on the positive side, I’ve started a nice collection of blooper photos to entertain you with soon. And there are some really good ones.
