hep of the past

hep of the now, originally uploaded by hep.

someone asked me about this again yesterday. my eyes aren't really the same color as my hair, but in many lights they are close enough for it to seem that way. if i am not wearing makeup they will match up super close (which is one of the reasons i wear makeup so often. it looks weird and matchy-matchy to have your eyes and hair color matching) when i was young i hated both my hair color and eye color (CHILDHOOD GINGER OPPRESSION! jkjk) but now i like both of the colors. same with my freckles. what feature did you guys hate as a kid, but now are fond of and feel makes you stand out from the crowd?

I think your eyes are awesome.

I hated my hair, and once I became a teenager, I hated my skin.

I still have a love hate relationship with my hair.

I wish I had new (read clear, not oily, not acne prone) skin. I feel like I'm fairly pretty except for my skin, (and sometimes my hair)

I always hated my pale skin against my dark hair, but I have learned to love it.
i mean, i dont know. maybe i still hate the things i hated when i was younger, and ive just decided that, since i cant change them, theres no reason to think about them.

when i was younger, i thought maybe id grow in to my nose, but i didnt. i still have this kind of jew nose. thats probably the only thing that i was like, I HATE THIS!!! when i was younger. now, i just ignore it.
I haven't become fond of anything I hated in the past. I just started hating more things.

I hated my nose. I got it fixed and they kind of fucked it up, so it is crooked on the tip. I love my new fucked up nose. It isn't perfect, but it makes me happy, and it isn't the nose I hated.
i always hated my thick, wavy-ish hair but now i really like it. i hated my skin when i was a teenager and i still do, i still get acne (though not as badly) and it's super oily/shiny and i'm almost 27. blah.
i hated my hair when i was younger, but now consider it one of my best features. i still hate my freckles though, i swear i'm the only asian with freckles.
I used to hate my hair because it's stick-straight and very fine but I have A LOT A LOT A LOT of it so it tends to hang like a heavy curtain. I had terrible haircuts all through my teens because I didn't have a clue about how to style my hair and none of the hairdressers I went to seemed to know how to cut it so it would grow out properly. Now I have finally found someone who knows how to cut my hair and I am slowly getting better at the whole styling thing, so I like my hair a lot better now.

Also, I am very pale but have dark hair on my arms. I don't know where it comes from because no one in my family has it. Kids made fun of me about it when I was in elementary school, so I was pretty sensitive about it growing up, but I don't really care any more.
You're going to hate me if I tell you your freckles match too, right?
I have always loved freckles.
This is a weird answer, but I have always been covered in peach fuzz, which I was told by people was weird. So I believed them, convinced that I was a nasty hairy beast. Now I like my fuzzies, maybe mostly out of spite.
i hated my hair too, but now i have the hair i've always dreamed of.

also, fat.
