Oh My, the Avatars…

2009 April 7

Okay, I FINALLY made some avatars. I was telling my group the other day that I have difficulty with avatars because I spend way too much time trying to make them look exactly like me. I spent excruciating amounts of time over the weekend trying to choose the right hairstyle, skin color, nose, etc. but it did not really work the way I wanted it to, so I gave up. Today, I just hit whatever looked kind of interesting, even if it wasn’t exactly me.

I know it’s silly, but I cannot escape the compulsion to accurately represent myself, even if it is “just the internet”, which is why I never do avatars. They are stressful. I can’t lie to the internet, even if it does present the opportunity. I would probably never wear a ringmaster jacket though.
