Twin Envy

The great thing about having a twin would be having someone to help out as well as twice the amount of clothes but sharing a wardrobe. Since I'm currently struggling to clear out my room I blame the fact that it's raining and horrible outside and I'm right where I want to be- inside in the lounge room going between the computer and the television. I should really be a little more motivated to clean up my room and make it a nicer place to inhabit. But maybe I would be been more motivated if there were an extra set of hands to help me out or at least someone to hassle me and remind me of my sloth-like ways.

As well as the twin factor I'm pretty jealous of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's hair; I would kill to have lovely and luscious waves like that. Let's face it a lot of people would be jealous of these celebrities, they made a fortune in their child years as actors and still enjoy and reap the rewards of lending their name to products. While I'm here, slaving over a hot keyboard and working my fingers to the bone in the name of blogging.

Although nothing really beats having the real thing in the flesh and I can never really recreate a photo to this extent and clutch someone in my exact image, a favourable Phtotoshop effect is to have a mirror image split right down the middle when taking a self portrait and it's something I would really like to try. I have a free downloaded version of Photoshop but nothing saves with the right quality so it's only really good for practice and I'm unsure as to whether the mirror-image effect is something achievable through a laptop built in camera.

It's because of their similarity the Olsen twins were able to become child actors, playing the same character due to tight child labour laws. While it may seem like a shortcut to success as well as a fortune, there's no shame in being a working-class citizen and doing things the old-fashion way. Still, it would be nice to be able to enjoy paparazzi treatment or at least have some great photographs produced. Looks like I'll have to take the long way into creating a name for myself and if that means taking my own self-portrait photographs; so be it.
