The only places I've ever seen ask for applications with photos here are trendy clothes shops who are want to judge everyone by their appearance before even considering them for a position.

I would buy that. Maybe it should be the next PPK fundraiser, like the teal cat project.

You submit photos with job applications? That is considered very improper here.


It's very common here. I used to think it was weird too, but the idea is that it makes it easier for whoever is sorting through a pile of job applications to keep them separate. A name + a face is easier to remember than just a name. The only places that actually require it are restaurants and shops usually, but yesterday I used one of those online application systems to apply for jobs in hospitals, and they had a handy little tool for uploading a photo. My CV is not very impressive, so I want to do whatever I can to increase my chances. I used the first photo.

if you hand in a job application without a photo, they won't even have a second look. and those photos better be good, done by a professional photographer!

Yes. And beauty salons!

I once received a health & safety form from some contractors and for some reason, they also sent me passport pics of themselves. It was great, they all had epic handlebar moustaches.

New earrings... really bold for me. Think I can pull them off? I feel like they might not mesh well with my style? Loooove the wood grain and color though.

I'm pretty sure grad applications have moved my hairline back a little and accelerated my beard growth.

Thank you! Yeah, it's finally a length that I can live with when it's down. Hooray for no more awkward hair stages!

Why do all the cute people live at least one large body of water away from here?

Remember that party? Here's a pic from the evening itself:

Um, hi, woah, you're really cute.
Also, Paloma, I second the "That's amazing" sentiment, you look great!
