Instagram?

I think I need to start off here with yes, these are just awful photos, but bear with me here. It gets much prettier to look at =)

Instagram has been on my mind as of late. I joined WAAAAAY back in March 2011 and had a shtick. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of my feed, you can see it for yourself. Quiet embarrassing. My first comment is usually really obscure, and because my account was private and I only had like 12 followers it was really just something for myself. So what on earth was I commenting about? Well I constantly have my headphones streaming music into my ears. It was the title of the song I was listening to. I told you it was weird and obscure. I was also BIG into filters. Filters that kinda make me cringe these days.

I can’t believe I’m revisiting these shots and sharing them with you! Man oh man! I took them with the original 1st generation iPhone that had such a scratched up camera lens. And then to add that scratchy texture on top of it and darken it, AND I added those awful frames. What on earth was I thinking? I soon got sick of the whole song title idea, so I changed it up. Besides my 12 followers slash friends were like WTH Kyla??? Since it was a private account, I just posted pictures of my everyday life, and it stayed this way for a really long time. I only used IG once in a blue moon.
