Talking in class

This Time photo shoot has some decent pictures. I like the idea of letting the subjects of the photo do the talking. A favorite:

I hate it when I have a fake smile in a picture. So I don’t smile. And then people always say that I’m being negative, but I just don’t like to look stupid. Sometimes people think it means I’m in a bad mood, but I don’t really care because it’s not usually true. People think that I’m really blunt, and so, in a way, that can be good, but also it sucks ’cause people think I’m mean when I’m not trying to be mean and I don’t even notice that I offend people sometimes. And so that can be frustrating ’cause it will come back a week later in my face and they’ll be like, “You made me so upset the other day, blah, blah,” and then it’s like, “I didn’t know, sorry, I didn’t mean it that way.” And so in a way I like that about myself, ’cause I hate it when people are two-faced and lie, but in another sense it alienates me from people sometimes, because I don’t know that I’m offending them.
