So I had mentioned before that I was interviewed and photographed for an article for the New York Times a couple weeks ago and the interview finally came out. I wasn't sure if I was going to post on it because I had just gotten an e-mail from the reporter, Catherine Saint Louis, on Saturday letting me know that my quotes had been cut for space. She was not sure if or if not any of my photos would be published. Much to my surprise, one actually did get used.
It's focused on the lens and not my face so you can't even tell it's me, plus I got no credit on it whatsoever. Ha! And check out the main photo they used. Not trying to be biased, but I guess Caucasians with circle lenses make for a more riveting story, eh? What can I say, she looks adorable in those violet lenses.
As I always say, I hope for the best and expect the worst. I suppose my preaching of positivity and feeling good with a small change didn't fit in with the whole illegal and you could go blind messages that were subtly put in the article. Oh well, still a pretty cool experience considering not everyone gets their photo printed in the New York Times, right?
And I mean, my Sally Hansen pink chrome polish looks SPOT ON. ;D

PS. Happy 4th of July, Americans! It's a beautiful thing to have the freedom to say what you want to say, post what you'd like to post, and be who you want to be. Word up to having liberty and peace out, girlscout!
