beautiful the way you aren't by poofmongoose beautiful the way you aren't by poofmongoose
I love me the way I'm not. when I was younger, if you told me i would turn out the way I have so far, i probably would have thanked you for the advice, and politely not believed you. I should never have a career in fortune telling.

I like the expressions...they don't look much like me...well sorta.

it's also sorta is about how image can be so deeply based on the way you dress (actually, it's mostly the wy you dress), you can be the exact same person, but you'll be excepted differently if you look different. I've came across so many people I haven't seen in a while and they're always so surprised at the way I look now. I find it extreamly amusing to see the looks on thei faces. it always makes me smile.which also scares them sometimes.

It's great to see how things change so much.

...That reminds me, I recently saw an old picture of myself. OH MY GOURD it was...weird. I mean, I haven't changed very considerably--I have what one would call a "timeless" face, I look pretty much the same through the years-- but it was just...weird.

I like the 2005 joo. I like the other you, too, but I like the older you better.

yeah that's what happened to me, my grandpa sent my brother a movie of when I was like five....omg. it was hilarious. then older me thinks the younger me is stupid and lame. the younger me would have probably been very afraid of the older me.

I like this picture the most of all of you, 'cause I love its concept. I think that people judges by the way U drees, the make up U uses, the piercings U have... They didn't even understand that under Ur aspect there is a person, not a stereotype. How many times I have heard "Ey men, U are satanist? U like the demon, Isn't it? That's the way, U drees in black and have spikes on your necklace and Ur wrist, so u MUST adore the Devil and hear Marilyn Manson" :P

Good Job!!

Reply
:iconpoofmongoose:
poofmongoose Featured By Owner May 31, 2005
um...well okay, i've got lots....lets see here....story time...
I'll start with one that really shook me up and made me mad...
Once apon a time in a small city is the very hot summer walked a group of fancy people down the sidewalk. they were intentionally dressed the way most people would dress on halloween, one was even wearing black wings (this wasn't me though). they had sucessfully gotten a frozen beverage and were head back to a friends house. there are stairs on the way to the friends house, and they had to go down them. on the stairs were a group of people. they couldnn't tell who these guys were from a distance so some of the group were a little nervous in fear of getting mugged er something. well, they went in anyway and found that these boys ( a long with some girls who's IQ's were eqivilant to the amount of clothong the were wearing) were from their school. they boys decied to make fun of the snazzy little group of misfits, by using Phrases like'halloween is in two months' (actually it was in one month, but whatever, lifes hard when your iq only goes as high as your shoe size) they cojured some other 'hurtful' remarks but the group justwalked on by. one girls int eh group was a little shaken and very P.O'd at these guys because it was the first time she had ever been critisized so harshley. she never talked to those biys again, and continued to dress the way she liked....the end?
wow that didn't sound as bad as it was...

this is a very interesting concept.
it looks like you've changed a lot.
it's like a two-way mirror, and it makes me think of that one song by switchfoot. i really hate it, but it seems to apply to this picture.
"this is your life.
is it who you want to be?"
yeah. XD i'm just being silly and wasting space on your page.
Reply
:iconpoofmongoose:
poofmongoose Featured By Owner May 30, 2005
naw, no waste of space, cause it made me think a little, and when i was little I wanted to be something different, but then i changed, and what I wanted to be changed...so really as long as I'm being myself ( which is tricky) I' always the way I wanted to be...kay, that was just sappy...sorry.
Reply
:iconcolaur:
colaur Featured By Owner May 30, 2005
it's more confusing than sappy. XD i had to read it over.
but, it makes sense. i understand and can relate... somewhat, though i haven't changed as much as you have.
