girl on film

Tomorrow I get my photo taken for a UW admission publication sent out to prospective undergrads. I’m representing the English major, so there will be my thumbnail-sized photo boxed in with a short bio/praise for the University. I was interviewed coincidentally enough by the sister of my creative writing professor (after talking with her, I can tell their family is insanely brilliant). I don’t know how it’s going to come out. I gushed about the library-system and how my victorian professor was such an postive influence and inspiration. Because I went on so adamantly about him, he will be in the photo, too. How do I coordinate outfits with a Harvard man, I wonder. (As I type this, I can just hear Mike ask, “Why is your nose so brown, Mona?”)

This photo, which will humblingly small and insignficant, has caused much vanity to surface (and truthfully, the reason I submitted myself to the eyebrow wax). This is all quite silly, but makes me think of Anne of Green Gables and her first formal prayer: “As for the things I want, they’re so numerous that it would take a great deal of time to name them all, so I will only mention the two most important. Please let me stay at Green Gables; and please let me be good-looking when I grow up.”
