Advice to My Younger Self
For mt next assignment I chose to give advice to my younger self with this 4.5 star assignment. Technically this assignment said sixteen year old self, but I decided to make it a little more general.
I chose a Polaroid theme with post-it notes to describe my more introverted childhood and the message of my video. Although Polaroids were not the normal form of photography when this pictures were taken, I feel that it helps portray the idea of going back in time to a different me. I ordered the photos so that they went from youngest to most recent with the last image being from Relay my Freshman year of college (May 2015). Relay was a big step out of my comfort zone and I thought it was a good representation of what I wish I had when I was younger. My advice was to be more outgoing and to stop overthinking. Since coming to college I have gotten better about stepping out of my comfort zone, but maybe if I had started working on being less of an introvert when I was younger then I would be more comfortable now. I did small things when I was in high school, but I feel that I could have done more. I have always been overly worried and that has kept me from trying many things in life. So not only is this advice I would like to give to my younger self, but it is advice that I give myself every day as I work on becoming a happier me.
