When I was in eighth grade my doctor told me I was overweight and needed to go on a diet. I had never viewed myself as chubby, but the blinders came off and I still see myself in the mirror as that eighth grade-bigger than everyone.
The only time I can truly see myself is in pictures.
I suffer from body dysmorphia.
Having to create a video that was less than three minutes was very challenging. The hike was six hours long and I recorded a total of 10 mins and 40 secs. But it helped me prioritize which video clips would show the viewer the best of Charles Bunion and hiking.

It snowed the night before the Super Bowl and everything was white, including my father-in-law’s parking meter. I saw eyes with bushy eye brows and thick eyelashes, so I turned them into a collage.
Growing up, I was a fan of scaring myself with horror movies, and also, a fan of Jack Nicholson.
I don’t feel stressed over this whole COVID-19 virus, but I know that I am because of these four things:
- I’m grinding my teeth again at night.
- I cried when I found out that World Market would be closing to the public.
- Again, when I found out that World Market would extend it’s closure until at least May 2/4th.
- When I took these photos.
The teachers didn’t have leave these window messages, but they did and it gave me some hope. I needed that. I need a creative outlet. A distraction.
