Day Three: A History of Angst

I was searching through the teen angst tag on tumblr for inspiration, when I found this picture by a girl who calls herself stoned-daisies (cannot guarantee the appropriateness of that link, it is stoned-daisies after all.)

This picture took me straight back to the days of my youth. In the height of my senior year angst, I did a 365 day photo project. And black and white solemn selfies were my bread and butter.

The only thing more fantastic than the level of my emotion in these pictures is my mom’s comments on flickr. Her effort to support my creativity (and make jokes) was mostly met with further cries of being misunderstood.  So here we have it, my most emotional photos of 2012.

I took this one the day I broke up with my boyfriend because there’s no cure for heartache like putting a sunset on your face.

I titled this one: “My Mental State (lol)”

3

No kidding. I’m pretty sure the first thing on the list was just “My Parents”.

I’m so sad that my very skin is turning black and my posture is deteriorating, someone send help.

Wow all that raw, untempered teen emotion can really be hard to swallow. How did you express your angst?
