So I finally got my UBC Faculty card. Isn’t it pretty?

Are you thinking, “Hmmm, that photo looks familiar?” Rather than going into the Bookstore and having them take a mugshot for the card, which invariably turns out terribly, I selected the option where you can upload a photo that you already have. There are a bunch of requirements for what makes an acceptable photo: I needed a photo that’s not bigger than 3 MB and 120 pixels x 160 pixels, with a white background in which my “shoulders squared to the camera.” Photoshop took care of size requirements and creating a white background, but I discovered that I don’t have many photos with my shoulders squared to the camera. At least not ones that I look good in. Not that I wasted over an hour picking a good photo. How vain do you think I am?

The photo I ended up choosing is from Shalu & Deepak’s wedding. I kinda like that I am wearing a sari and some serious bling in my Faculty card photo.
