As you may know this past month I took the Kim Kardashian-West Selfie challenge by recreating a new Kim K selfie every day. As a lover of selfies of course I had to pay homage to the Queen of selfies herself. While it was difficult trying to reach Kim’s level of flawlessness, KIMmay was a great experience. Kim has so many iconic selfies it was hard to narrow them down to 31. Obviously there was one specific selfie I just had to recreate. Of course I’m talking about Kim’s “nude” selfie.
Okay Dolls, I know I’ve been away for a while, but trust me it’s worth it. One of favourite past times, aside from being fabulous and gorgeous, is recreating Kim Kardashian-West’s selfies. It’s something I’ve been doing for a year just for fun to give my Instagram followers a laugh. However, this past month I’ve taken my selfie game to the next level by taking the Kim Kardashian-West Selfie Challenge. After my bestie Caitee gave me the brilliant idea of doing a Kim K photo challenge, I knew I had to. So this past month I’ve been recreating a new Kim K selfie a day for an occasion I like to call KIMmay. To see all my iconic selfies follow me on Instagram: EvanMichael91 (yay for shameless self promotion).
If you know me then you know that I am a huge Disney freak. Even at the prime age of 24 I still relish my old Disney movies. Who needs to go out in public when I can stay in with Cinderella, Mulan, and Tarzan? But out of all the great Disney movies out there my favourite Disney movie, perhaps my favourite movie of all time, is The Little Mermaid. I don’t even know how to put into words my love of this movie. Ever since I watched it when I was a toddler, I was mesmerized. Even my parents couldn’t understand why I was so infatuated by a mermaid princess. Well, after watching Ariel turn into a human for the 723523452459 time I think I finally figured why I was so drawn to this movie. The Little Mermaid is actually LGBT friendly. Growing up as a young closeted gay The Little Mermaid was probably my first foray into the gay community.
I’ve been told that I’m a superficial person, and that I value physical looks and appearances above personality. And while I’d like to protest such accusations I will admit that I can be shallow and superficial at times. I believe looks are important and I am often attracted to those with adonis bodies and perfect hair. Does this make me a horrible person? Probably. So imagine my surprise when I found out I had a rather large wart on my perfect, beautiful face? I was devastated.
For the past 23 years there’s been nothing I wanted more than having a boyfriend. I know how pathetic that sounds; me pining over some imaginary perfect guy. But I am a romantic at heart. I may be cynical at times but I believe in heart-racing, palm sweating, weak-in-the-knees love. I blame Nicholas Sparks and Disney movies.
However, I have come to the realization that my quest for a boyfriend is kind of pointless. I’ve been focusing all this energy and time trying to find a nice guy to date but I should be focusing on other things. This summer I’ve realized that more than anything I want more friends. Now don’t get it twisted I’m not some friendless loser who stays home all day playing online video games. I have friends; pretty great friends. But like Ariel in my favorite movie The Little Mermaid, I want more. To be more specific I want more gay friends.
Do you want to know a dreadful thought I had the other day? We are about half way through summer. Let’s just let that sink in. There’s only a month and a half of hot weather, short shorts, and topless boys left! I need to have a moment of silence.
Now that summer’s half way done I’ve had time to reflect on how I spent the first half of summer. And to be honest I’ve done absolutely nothing. It pains me to think about the last two months and how completely uneventful it was. Aside from watching the latest season of Orange is The New Black I haven’t really done anything.
