The selfie is so yesterday. I mean, how many more awkwardly angled selfies, or bathroom selfies can a person take in one lifetime?
I for one am done. I’m out. I loved you for many a year, but I’m moving on selfie.
I’m not handing in my iPhone and checking into a monastery.
No, no, no, my dear, I’m simply leveling up my game. I’m leaving selfies behind and moving into the big leagues.
My face will become my art.
I am art.
I self-portrait now.
The connoisseur’s selfie
Admittedly, this may be a phase I am going through for the next hour, but a self-portrait reveals so much more about who I am as a person.
Do I always want to reveal more about who I am as a person? Absolutely not, but it sounds deep and meaningful. And I am all about that.
Not only will becoming a self-portrait person rather than a simple selfie person make you sound mysterious and cool, but it can also help to blow up that follower counter.
More than 10 million self-portrait posts show that we’re not alone.
