17 ways life sucks when you're terrible at selfies

Pout like your life depends on it.

Selfie feature

Selfies, selfies, selfies. Everywhere where we look, everyone is taking selfies. Even things that aren't selfies are selfies, like when that guy had his photo taken with the would-be EgyptAir hijacker and everyone called it a selfie when it clearly was just a normal photo. Selfies are king, basically.

So what is one to do if one lacks the skills that go into taking a [*insert fire emoji*] photo of oneself? What if we've tried all the light sources, all the angles, and every kind of filter known to man and still end up looking like an old potato? Well...life's just a little harder for us, unfortunately.

  1. 1 You have spent hundreds of hours of your life trying to take a good selfie
  2. 2 ...to the extent that your camera roll is just entirely your face

  12. 12 None of your travel photos feature you

  14. 14 Even selfies with your pet don't work out
  15. 15 In fact, sometimes they actively object to the whole concept
  16. 16 Your quest for the perfect pic has even gotten you into some serious scrapes
  17. 17 But you will never stop trying, because you know one day, you're gonna nail it

    Besides, at least you know you look better in real life.
