Why is your top dirty?

Tonight I'm going to the Mixtape zine launch for the Festival of the Photocopier. I'm looking forward to seeing some arty/crafty people and talking shop. I have however realised I need to get a riggle on and actually get out of the house. I always leave things to the last minute which is annoying, but sometimes it can be fun to create a challenge. Can I get ready in 20 minutes and still arrive on time?

I found this photo while looking through some old folders. This is me 6 years ago. I had just finished art school and was living with my parents on the family farm. I was working 6 days a week, 7.30 - 5 packing vegetables. That is why the top is dirty, from all the carrots I had to shift. I worked at the factory from Feb till April. It was a really horrid job, so mundane and boring. I had my sister working with me for the first three weeks but she left to go to uni, so it was just me and the vegie folk.

You look happy though. I always find it weird looking back at old photos of myself, wondering exactly what I was thinking when it was taken...
