True to life (#51/365)

It occurred to me last night, as I tried to get to sleep, that most of the photos I upload look absolutely nothing like me.

I mean, of course they’re me, but I don’t actually walk around looking gormless… or without glasses on… or generally trying to look somewhat handsome. Most of the time I look… normal like a geek!

The other thing that occurred to me (I do most of my thinking in bed) is that it’s very hard to actually show you a Year in the Life of Seb. When I’m not travelling I spend about 16 hours a day in front of a computer. I’m not absolutely sure, but I suspect most people wouldn’t want to see 300-odd photos of me sitting at my desk. It would probably get a bit samey. ‘What hairband is Seb wearing today?’

This is my attempt to rectify all of the above, to show you the real me. This is what I look like 90% of the time. I wear glasses, I don’t prance around in woollen wear like a male model, my keyboard is my life, and… I even smile occasionally!

I threw the Quake t-shirt in just to remind you all that, at my very core, I’m a geeky gamer. (But as you all know, geeks make good lovers…)
